No wonder people buy lottery tickets

In the movie Out of Time, I just heard someone say, about an alternative cancer treatment, "Seventeen percent [success rate]? The odds are better I'd hit the lottery!"

Well, I guess if a one dollar ticket gives you an 18 or 19% chance at winning a million dollars, I'm an idiot not to have been playing!


  1. I'm not familiar with the movie, but please tell me it wasn't Jeff Goldblum's character.

  2. Well, except that the lottery tickets cost $17 million ...
