HOMER: Look what I bought! Lottery tickets!
LISA: Dad, you know the odds of winning are 70,000,000 to 1, right?
HOMER: Correction: 70,000,000 to 100! With this many tickets I can't lose!
TV ANNOUNCER: The first number is . . . 17.
HOMER: D'OH! *begins ripping up tickets*
MARGE: Wait Homer, you can still win money if you get six out of seven numbers.
HOMER: Oh.
TV ANNOUNCER: The second number is . . . 6.
HOMER: D'OH!!! *continues ripping up tickets*

Yeah, just because I almost failed calculus the first time around doesn't mean I don't understand how shitty Lotto odds are (I took statistics for that one! ).

Winning ticket was sold a hour after I filled up my truck at that exact station. I bought $10 dollars worth of tickets there, so imagine my surpise when I see that gas station on the news and hear people explain how the ticket for the largest jackpot in US history was sold there. I got one number, though......
Guess its back to the grind stone.....errr, I mean retirement.
