OK, first of all, shame on me for reading Yahoo! Finance. I don't know why I do it--and I don't really do it that often--but I have this strange fascination with crap "news" sources. Anyways, stumbled upon this: https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/...-lowest-earners-spend-on-vices-050244627.html wherein, this is claimed: 13 percent?!?! I didn't delve too deeply, whether they're talking gross or net and so forth... Don't know. But there is just no freakin' way that there are people who are spending four thousand bucks on lottery tickets.
