You are chasing a fallacy. Whilst the maximum return might be large, the
chance of that return is miniscule. There are better rates of return.
like what? what else can potentially turn $5 into $5 million
99% or more of the millionaires of the world didn't get to be
millionaires by buying lottery tickets. They made their own luck.
I only personally know only one person who had a big win on the
lottery - $1.2 million back when a million dollars was actually worth
something - but he is no longer a millionaire.
Easy come, easy go - as the saying goes.
so my question remains unanswered. what 'investment' can potentially
turn $5 (the price of a lottery ticket) in millions of $$$? the answer
would be none. bitcoin maybe, but that boat has sailed. you're just
arguing for the sake of arguing.
How many you know who even know someone, who knows someone, who knows
someone, etc, who has won 1st prize in a Australian lottery?

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot
survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable,
for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves
amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar
to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he
appeals to the basenessthat lies deep in the hearts of all men. He
rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night
to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so
that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
