House is not triskaidekaphobic. He and 13 are spending lots of dialogue together and it seems they are of like mind on many things. Want to know why I don’t care?
The most intesting conversation between them concerned lotteries. Now these are two intelligent folks who presumably can do rudimentary mathematics. Lotteries are a tax on the stupid. And even though there is a vanishingly small chance of winning, the people who play them minimize even that small glimmer of hope by playing them wrong most of the time. (If you buy one ticket per week for 52 weekly drawings, you are being silly. Save up the fifty-two bucks and buy 52 tickets for one drawing.)
So people who play lotteries are not terribly bright to begin with (or already have a lot of money to waste). Is it any surprise that lottery winners do not use their winnings well?
And if someone seems to have developed three different cancers simultaneously, it probably is not really cancer.
