guys, what's the difference between raffles and lotteries? Isn't a raffle a lottery?
When you buy a raffle ticket you first ask,
"Who's going to win?"
Then you decide whether you're willing to give a buck to contribute to the sick person or charity organization the raffle's being held to raise money for.
And you decide whether the person who's going to win is someone you can live with yourself having contributed to.
When you buy a lottery ticket you might well ask,
"Who's going to win, and how much."
"We don't know who's going to win, but odds are nobody will.
"As for how much might be won, that's a tricky question. We'll give you an answer, but you'd want to know a lot more before it would be true.
"The simple answer is a short term lie, a long term truth, sort of."
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
