A new nadir in stupidity

An unbelievable story over at Sky News, involving a New Yorker who embezzled over £1m from her employer and then - get this - spent it all on lottery tickets. I was under the impression that people bought lottery tickets in the hope of getting rich, rather than using it as serious investment vehicle once they had wealth. Can't say the lottery is one of my vices - I prefer straight ahead gambling, as at least I can try to convince myself that a degree of insight is in play rather than just the hand of chance.

Imagine standing in line behind her at 19:20 on a saturday night in sainsburys , clutching your £1 coin terrified that you will not be able to select your usual "lucky" numbers in time.

you may recall that an Irish lady won £80,million a few weeks ago, well she only did so as the chap before her in the queue gallantly said "ladies first" she bought the lucky dip that could have been his.
He got nothing she got on the rich list.
I bet he hasnt opened a door or offered up his seat for a woman since.
