Here we go again. The SuperQaeda is up to over $150 million, and the hordes are piling into Education Al Qaeda bases trying their best to buy a ticket for the SuperQaeda (a k a the Powerball LOOTtery).Thinking about what to write this time, I think to watching CNBC's Jim Cramer and the popular "Mad Money" programme to think about it.I can have a pair of Powerball ticket sitting on the chair at the commencement of the Lightning Round.I could show how bad it was by discussing the stupidity of the lottery, and then pressing the "Don't Buy" button.I could explain that investing in Scientific Games is better than the lottery itself, pressing a bull button.But in all essence, all of these show that a scheme where more than half the money goes to pay out prizes and less than a third goes for the main goals is a bad investment overall.
Dude, what's your issue? It's a game.
