As I've probably mentioned before, I play the lottery on occasion. It's not in the hope that I'll be able to go and live on a yacht in the Carribean, it's so that I wouldn't rely on being stuck in an office five days a week to live, but rather would be out of the rat race and able to do more socially useful work of my choosing. I often feel that the "9-to-5" culture is the best weapon that the establishment has against people taking a social interest.
