I'm gambling that my time is better well spent writing this post than doing something else. I lost that one.
lottery....1 in 90 million.
flip a coin......1 in 2
poker....taking 1,000 to 10,000 in one tournament
trading.....taking 10,000 to 10,500 in one week
it's all relative. some just have odds much worse than others. as humans, we have hope and seem to think we will be that special someone. that one guy who is the superhero, makes millions from a $10,000 account. or buy that $50,000 car or $800,000 house and our life will be this or that. ah, who cares, whatever works for you.
unless you have kids....then i think you need to really be more risk averse. and that is the plan of the government. once in debt, married, kids, you will take less risk and be owned more. which makes us want to rebel and gamble more...
