Lotteries: tax on the poor and mathematically-challenged

OK, it's not a cartoon and it's not really political except in that it does rip-off the poor and is related to tax policy, but anyway... As most or all of you know, the Mega Millions is over $500,000,000 right now and people are going apeshit. Someone linked me this funny site and now I'm sharing it with you:

Incredibly Depressing Mega Millions Lottery Simulator!
Description: "It is really hard to win the Mega Millions lottery. So hard that it can be difficult to comprehend what long odds confront its players.

Why not try for free on this Mega Millions lottery simulator? You'll be able to try the same numbers over and over, simulating playing twice a week for a year or 10. You'll never win."

"In the 54302652 times this simulation has run, players have won $13404032
And by won I mean they have won back $13404032 of the $54302652 they spent (24%)."

Give it a try and enjoy. (Mods: delete if this is too far removed from the community purpose.)

Zimmerman Video

This is a video of Mr. Zimmerman the night he shot and killed Trayvon Martin.

Notice the copiously bleeding head wound. Notice the bruises he has on his face from being punched in the nose. Notice the swelling.....what? You don't see it? Well you would if you were a racist douchenozzle.   I don't either!
