First of all, I want to make it perfectly clear that I do not ordinarily play the lottery. After all, I have my standards. And my standards usually start somewhere around the $100 million mark.
Second, North Carolina did not even have a lottery until about ten years ago. North Carolina's whole take on the lottery was that God would smite them if they led folks into temptation (which in this instance would be gambling). It wasn't as if God didn't have plenty of reasons to smite them PRIOR to 2000, what with the whole slavery-segregation-KKK stuff happening, not to mention that close relatives can still marry if they choose to do so.
But I am kinda bummed that I didn't win.
Because a hundred million after taxes could buy a lot of that liquor I've been begging for.
