This is for all the fools out there...

I don't usually talk about stuff like this, but look at that lottery ticket of mine up there.  I don't normally buy lottery tickets, but the feverish hype about the record breaking jackpot of the Mega Millions last Friday enticed me to take a chance.  So I put three bucks down on three easy picks.  If you'll notice not a single one of my numbers matched the winning numbers drawn on March 30:  2-4-23-38-46 and Mega Ball 23.   I didn't really expect to win, but I thought I'd probably match one number at least.

I've been strangely lucky with the number "69" in the past.  This is NOT a cheap attempt at crude humor, and if you check out my post from March 3, 2008 you'll see I'm telling the truth.  Unfortunately, there's no "69" in the Mega Millions game. 

Yeah, I won't be buying another lottery ticket anytime soon.  The odds of winning are so ridiculous it's foolish to throwaway money on this game.

Here's something else foolish to throw your money away on according to these Yelp reviews, and it's something a little more in keeping with the spirit of this blog - it's the World of Illusion in Gatlinburg, TN...

I didn't intend to post this retro brochure since it can be easily found elsewhere on the internet.  In fact some of my fellow blogger acquaintances have blogged, and blogged well about this place.  But then I noticed that my brochure is slightly different than ones I've seen online. The difference is that last bullet point, or more accurately star point on the purple page. It reads, "Create pure energy in a Star Sculpture exhibit." I have no idea what a "Star Sculpture exhibit" is or was, but I'm thinking maybe it was one of those novelty plasma globes.

Speaking of novelties, I pity the fool who hasn't seen the awesome Stunt Rock (1980) trailer.  The reason I mention this it features a bad-ass white bearded wizard that looks similar to the wizard on the front of the World of Illusion brochure...

This movie has been popping up on TCM recently (the last time was late "Mega Millions" night March 30, 2012).  You might wish to check it out the next time it plays.  I'll warn you it doesn't quite live up to its trailer, but then again it won't really cost you anything either.

I can only image the plot that ties all those stunts together from the trailer. It must be amazing.
