While dining in a restaurant with a business associate, I overheard someone sitting in the next table saying: "Robert is successful in his business ventures... he's lucky to be a millionaire now!"

An interesting research conducted in the US has determined that a person driving 10 miles to buy a lottery ticket is 3 times more likely to die in a car accident than winning the lottery! Yet, even with the odds of winning the lottery nearing impossible, 1 in 4 Americans believe that lottery offers them the best chance of becoming rich. Really, isn't this equivalent to just buying hope?
