I've recently come into a little money, and am wondering what to invest in? The figure of £113 has been mentioned.

Fortunately that's the likely value of a SKA share when it floats later this year.

Buy lottery tickets.


What is the output of this program, for any lottery of your choice:-

0. Assume a lottery win; set iterations = 0
1. While winnings >0; iterations++
2. Spend winnings on lottery tickets; wait for draw; collect winnings
3. End loop
4. Debug.sob "Winnings = 0 after " & iterations

This program will not run forever (ignoring small change difficulties).

Go for Laddies Boy, 1.30 from Chepstow at 10-1. Heard on the grapevine he's taken a bung from Indian Bookmakers to fall at third fence.

Big Dave's Bookies is giving odds on fallers at the fences! You'll get 14-1 for the fall.

Shhhhhhhh. Taps nose.
