I can't even remember how many "new" cars I have won over the years in contests I've never entered

I get postcards all the time about how I'm a big winner.

I "won" a fabulous vacation to Florida last week- roundtrip airfare and all. Guess I should've told them I already live here.

The lottery is a scam altogether. Your chances of winning are almost nil. I heard a statistics professor say once that you have a much better chance of being attacked by a shark, a bear, and struck by lightning all at the same time than you do of winning the lottery.
