On not winning the lottery

I regret to announce that I did not win the lottery. I am firmly convinced that I would make an awesome eccentric millionaire. To give an example, one idea I had was that I would set up a foundation called (say) Our Alien Overlords, and sponsor PBS shows and museum exhibits. Imagine how awesome it would be to hear “This episode of NOVA was sponsored by Our Alien Overlords”, or to be at a museum and read “This Exhibit Was Funded by A Donation From Our Alien Overlords”.

But no, reality has other plans, so you’ll have to make do with billionaires like Donald Trump and Bill Gates.
