Lottery Ticket

Lottery Ticket - by C-Section Comics

The lottery is your ticket to heaven –
quitting your job, just having fun,
traveling, partying, living the dream.
How fun it can be (if only you’d won).

The lottery is your ticket to hell,
You’ll lose all your friends, you’ll suspect everyone,
constantly fearing that you’ll lose it all.
A terrible nightmare (if only you’d won).


You know what’s funny, right? That while the girl in the first panel partied, her LA mansion probably quadrupled its value, which more than paid for her lavish and carefree lifestyle.

But does winning the lottery actually make you happier? Well, there’s a famous research titled “Lottery winners and accident victims: Is happiness relative?“, dating back to 1978, which implies the opposite. Quoting a Business Insider article on this study:

  • Lottery winners rated the pleasure of mundane events of everyday life significantly lower than the controls.
  • Accident victims were not as unhappy as expected. They reported lower general happiness than lottery winners, but they reported happiness-levels that were quite well above the middle of the scale.
  • Lottery winners generated less pleasure by ordinary events of everyday life than controls. This effect can be explained by adaptation level theory and leads to the surprising fact, that they are not generally happier than people who didn’t win the lottery.
  • The accident victims also showed the expected contrast effect, but they contrasted the present events with events in the past. This can be called a “nostalgia effect” which is expected to wear off as time goes by.
  • The overall positive or negative effect of a single positive or negative event should not be overestimated: Most likely there are contrast effects, that compensate some of the effect and habituation effects, that limit the duration of a feeling generated by an event.
  • So there you have it. Winning the lottery does not make miserable people happy, and naturally happy people will retain their happiness levels even in tough times. At the end of it all, it’s all about your brain chemistry.

    Nevertheless, yours truly will still keep filling up lottery tickets. If there’s one tax I enjoy paying, it’s the idiot’s tax. And I know that I’m more likely to be hit by lightning than winning the lottery. I’m also more likely to die from flesh eating bacteria, or to parent quadruplets. I still can’t decide which of these is worse.

    The Best Method to Handle Tasks

    Tasks Dodging - by C-Section Comics

    Life keeps firing tasks at me
    in an endless shooting spree.
    I dodge them quite elegantly,
    leaving them for future me.

    “Procrastinator” they call me.
    Sorry, but I don’t agree.
    I just like to use my phone,
    why can’t life just let me be?

    That’s my routine – I dodge and duck,
    make sure that I am never struck.
    The tasks will not stop when I die,
    they’ll just hit some other schmuck.


    Here’s another comic about procrastination.
    And here’s another comic featuring “Life”.

    Student Loan

    Student Loan and Higher Education

    Higher education, yay!
    We all want it, right? I’ll say!
    But most of us don’t have the dough
    to pay for it. It’s sad. And so:

    A student loan is your first step
    towards education, yep.
    Unless you’re Laurie Loughlin‘s gal
    you will need that money, pal.

    That loan may be your biggest debt,
    a lifelong one. Don’t be upset:
    Your future job will help you pay
    the loan you took without delay.

    (We of course assume you’ve studied
    something useful, something valid.
    And if not my friend, don’t mourn.
    You can always work in porn.)


    Lifelong debt making you anxious? Time for some peace and quiet.


    Did you know? Following my Instagram page is totally free and does not require a student loan.

    Urinals with Ice

    Urinals with Ice - by C-Section Comics

    Urinals with ice,
    stronger than hot spice.
    Makes me feel like I’m a wizard;
    Pee which melts is nice.Urinals with ice,
    Here is some advice:
    You don’t need to flushe’m, no.
    Just pee, it’s suffice.

    Urinals with ice,
    what a great device!
    I feel naughty using you,
    it’s sort of a vice.

    Urinals with ice,
    am I in paradise?
    I love you like Trump loves himself,
    like cheese is loved by mice.


    So yeah, ladies, some urinals have ice in them. The reason? Some men don’t flush. Putting ice in urinals is a flushing alternative, as it slowly melts and flushes the urine away. It forms a cheaper, eco-friendlier alternative to electronic automatic flushing mechanisms with sensors. It’s ideal for places which already store large amounts of ice, such as restaurants, clubs, pubs and bars.
