That's remind me of thoses than come here to Quebec to manage to get all the medical cost related to birth covered by the state. I don't know if it work also in the others provinces but last time I heard about this it was said to cost a fews millions each year to the province.

I hope the Canadian gov't pays for that, send them back and don't let improperly insured about-to-give-birth visitors into the country...
Travel insurances aren't supposed to cover pregnancy, because it increases the risk within the pool. It's worldwide coverage should be covered by regular health or whole-life instead.

You’re far more likely to die a horrible death than win. The statistics say that, compared with winning the lottery, you are 33 times as likely to be killed by bees, 50 times as likely to be struck by lightning, 8,000 times as likely to be murdered and 20,000 times as likely to be killed in a car crash.

Does the size of the jackpot increase your chance of winning?

Because if it does not, then 1m... 700m. What's the big difference? In both cases you're rich.

Risk vs reward. If I don't buy a ticket, I'm 100% guaranteed to keep my $1. If I play, I have a 1 in 176 million chance (though I don't see where they got that number, as assuming it uses the same 42 numbers I'm accustomed to seeing on lotteries your chances are actually 1 in 3,776,965,920 (that's over 3.7 billion, people)) of winning. According to that article, the average of winning over not winning and splits, results in a total of $1.23 (though the article they reference says $0.90). That's pre-tax. Take out the taxes and it comes closer to $0.50. Considering the odds, I'll keep my dollar, thank you.

My lame theory is that your chances of winning are greater when the jackpot is at its lowest (right after the big one pays out) -- the reasoning is fewer people would be buying tickets.

Well... 1 million isn't that much (really, it isn't) when you start parsing out what can be purchased and what is taxed. But just like the "1%" issue, once you get past a a certain pile of millions there's a non-linear effect of simply there not being enough different things to *buy*. Prudent people usually create funds for research, the arts, public improvement, etc.

Depending of the lotery, here there's one than add more lots when the jackpot go over 50 millions, so if the jackpots is supposed to be 56 millions, they draw 7 combinations, 1 regular for the 50 millions, and 6 special for the special lot of 1 million only.

Well, it's not like the numbers are selected from a pool of what people picked, guaranteeing a win. You have the same odds in any given lottery. The only difference is if you win a small one, odds are you're the only winner. If you win a big one, many people may be sharing it with you.

Bear saves man from mountain lion.

Are you sure bears always make things worse? Perhaps we owe them some apology.

Mountain lions seem scarier to me anyway. They hunt like cats after all; sneaking up silently and pouncing from behind.
