I’ve never had good luck–or at least that’s what I say. Others say you make your own luck, and still others say that whether you think you have good luck or not, you’re right. But just trust me when I tell you if something is based solely on luck, I’m not going to be a winner. (The only things I’ve ever won have been those that relied on at least some skill or talent, including guessing how many candies were in a jar, which I used math to calculate.)
Add that to the fact that in a methods course in college, we had to determine the odds of winning the lottery, and you can see how that was enough to convince me I didn’t need to test the numbers.
So I would never play Powerball, even if the prize were over $1 billion, which it was yesterday.
