Okay, now that I have your attention… Let me just say that the Powerball is the work of the devil.
Powerball phenomenon has captured this country’s time, attention and in some cases intelligence. Everyone is running out to stand in line to buy tickets, planning their “I’m rich b**ch quit speech” and how they are going to help folks once they win. Why? We all know that the odds of winning are one in 292 million.
That’s one in freaking 292 million!
Let me give it to you further…
- You have a greater chance of being struck by lighting. One in 1.19 million
- You have a greater chance of dying from a bee sting. One in 6.1 million.
- You have a greater chance of dying in air and space transport incidents. One in 7,178.
- You have a greater chance of being an American billionaire. One in 575,097
Because mathematically the odds aren’t in your favor and you won’t be able to solve poverty no matter who says so. See this picture circulating on Facebook? People are literally trying to justify the need for the Powerball.
By giving you “mathematical” reasoning on how we could end poverty. Don’t fall for it people! Still not convinced that you can end poverty with the Powerball winnings? Then you my friend need to go back to school. Why?
You may get close in your number choices and think “Please Sweet Baby Jesus” just let me win. You won’t. You will look down at your ticket and think dang “I was close”
But, you can dream right? There’s nothing wrong with dreaming of winning.
If you should choose to partake of this mania, do so with a positive attitude…
Whew! Ya’ll taking this too seriously. So, look at your losing ticket and calmly stare at it for hours trying to rationalize your loss…
Accept it and move on. But, before you do…PLEASE make sure you delete your “I quit because I’m rich b**ch” text or video that you planned to send to your boss tonight.
