A tax on stupidity and greed

From a current TV National Lottery advert (to add the necessary context, these words are spoken by a woman in a horrible purple dress while a unicorn is singing "Luck be a Lady" in the shower).

"People make their own luck. In the lottery of life, your chances increase 100% if you take part. Right, I'm going out to encourage people to be more positive"

Yes, anyone who knows a sucker bet when they see one is "negative". One of those little things that reassures me that I'm not a cynic, I'm a realist.
