Silver And Gold

The Irish Lottery wasn't won again last night, meaning the jackpot will be yet another record of probably in excess of €16 million on Saturday. It's not really a surprise that no one is winning it though. As I pointed out when they upped the number selection to six from 1 - 45, the odds of winning are now in excess of one in 8 million in a country with an adult population of what? 2 million? It's such a tax on stupid people it's not funny. I'll admit I entered for the first time in years last night, though! The other theory that can't be discounted, however, is that the organisers are deliberately ensuring no one wins in order to whip up interest and free publicity.
