Why do people play this? Earlier on I went to the local shop to grab some milk and there was someone in front of me spending no less than £10 on scratchcards. They then proceeded to move to the side to let people pay, and scratch them all. All of them ended up in the bin. Well, fuck me, that was £10 well spent, wasn't it? Clearly they were thick as shit as anyone who is even half-educated these days surely realises that the National Lottery is an exceptional waste of money and is essentially a fucking fruit machine with slightly a more acceptable face, and worse odds.
But still people queue up in fucking Londis shops up and down the country, clutching their numbers form, firmly holding the belief it "could be them", and still the Lottery keeps going. The probability is that you won't win.
If you're so stupid you think that scratchcards is a good way to spend £10 on a Saturday night you're probably the kind of person who can't afford to throw away £10. Why not give it to me? There's a chance I'll give it straight back to you. Only a slim one though.
