Why are Canadians suddenly streaming across the border? I wish it was because they suddenly realized electing Trudeau was a mistake.
Instead, they're here to buy tickets for the Powerball lottery, with its record-breaking US$1.4 billion jackpot.
Lotteries are a government rip off. I call them the "stupid tax." If people understood basic math, and something about odds and statistics, they would realize this too.
(WATCH my demonstration that illustrates what 1-in-300 million odds -- that's the chance of winning Powerball tonight -- really looks like.)
But we don't teach math in school any more, not really.
Most people hate numbers, whether we're talking about statistics on guns, immigrants or education. They prefer platitudes. That's why we have Obama, Merkel and Trudeau in charge.
PS: The other fallacy is that winning (or even earning) huge sums of cash will make you happy. I burst that bubble, too.
