The lottery

Concerning the Lottery: "There is not, however, a more certain proposition in mathematics, than that the more tickets you adventure upon, the more likely you are to be a loser. Adventure upon all the tickets in the lottery, and you lose for certain; and the greater the number of your tickets the nearer you approach to this certainty."--Adam Smith, 1776, The Wealth of Nations, Chapter 10 I.10.30
