This is a question Gambling

Broke the bank at Las Vegas, or won a packet of smokes for getting your tinkle out in class? Outrageous, heroic or plain stupid bets.

Travelling with the in-laws,
having just graduated from being a penniless student to starting to try and scratch a living in the world, I bought a lottery ticket. As is the tradition, I selected the numbers from various significant dates and places. I meant to use the wife's birthday for one of the numbers but accidentally used the ex-girlfriend's (one day difference between them). Four of the numbers came up (winning $60 or so I think). If I had got the right birthday, it would have been five, netting several thousand dollars. Everyone around me was pleased at the $60 win but I knew the shameful truth: I'd cost us a helpful boost to our early married life because I'd had my ex on my mind.
