I have a PhD in theoretical physics. I understand the statistics behind Powerball at a deep and profound level — I could teach anyone why it is a bad idea to buy a ticket.
I buy Powerball tickets.
I am a human being.

You are correct, I won’t win but if I did I would not have to pay state taxes on my fortune because only two states let you keep it all – California and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. To which I ask the obvious question.. How did those tomato cans in Harrisburg miss that one?
no state income tax in tejas. and no beans in the chili.
