How to make lottery tickets a good bet
Look for state lotteries that frequently roll over a few times without gaining much publicity (and thus spiking ticket sales), avoid lucky numbers and slightly favor numbers near the edge of the ticket. Your chance of winning is as miniscule as ever, but if your number does come up, you’ll likely split your pot with far fewer people.

Rush Limbaugh’s comments against Sandra Fluke is obviously outrageous and indefensible. But from another angle…why is it that we need this person who is a perfect victim to be our standard bearer?

If you’re eating ground beef, you’re probably eating some pink slime. That is the not-so-technical term for protein isolated from fatty meat scraps and treated with ammonia.
