I use the example of the lottery payoffs when I teach "Expected Value". I
hope to show my students that playing the lottery is just another tax for
stupid people. But count me in that group. I sure get a dollars worth of
dreams whenever I play. And as they say in NY "Hey! You never know!"

But seriously, I do try to teach them that it's not a place to gamble
significant sums of money.
