    I'm not even willing to lose a dollar on a lottery ticket.

    Oh, I have Mega Millions and Powerball tickets for every drawing. I can afford $8 per week and I can dream about what I'll do when I hit the jackpot.

    @Beth Gallagher
    And that fact often turns negative unexpectedly. For example, the PREMIER telecommunications company, Lucent Corp., derived from the old Bell Telephone Co., which was broken up by govt., Lucent disappeared from sight. One of Lucent's predecessors was Bell Labs, which we can thank for the transistor, and thus the burgeoning electronics world of today.

    Ditto the high-ranking Eastman Kodak and Polaroid Corp., both bankrupt. These three give grim testimony to the fact that almost nothing is a "sure thing".
