When lotto or Powerball jackpots I usually buy a few tickets, why not? We spend so much money on other junk things that are just useless or thrown out soon after that a couple of bucks on lotto is ok. When Powerball hit a $150 Million first prize that was fun. If you are ever with a group of friends and you run out of things to talk about then talk about what you would do with a win. That will liven up the conversation for a while. Gambling, it's ok as long as you got a handle on it and don't blow your house on it.
