No, for a lottery ticket I have to pay *good* money.
For gaining that increased chance of life I only get rid of *terrible*
suffering.  It's a no brainer.

I never buy lottery tickets, because for every $ I pay, I stand to
get only 50 cents or so in return. The better odds at records jackpots
only apply to - just the jackpot.  The odds are tens of millions
to one against you being that winner.  - Baaad investment
