'Time traveller' from 2118 reveals sinister reason he can't buy lottery ticket to become millionaire
Apparently it's not because he just doesn't know the numbers because he's not actually a time traveller.
A strange looking bald man has claimed he is from the future. Yeah. Another one.
This bloke, who is calling himself Alexander Smith, says he was part of a CIA experiment which saw him visit the year 2118. He has since returned to us, in the here and now, and is spilling all his vital, vital information about his experiences.
Such as why he doesn't just buy a lottery ticket and become a millionaire.
“I didn’t buy a lottery ticket. It was strictly forbidden by the CIA to do anything that would increase my monetary wealth. You see the CIA were paying me very well for my mission. I was paid a substantial amount so there was no reason for me to try to get lottery numbers from the past" he said.
Alright mate. There's no need to brag about the CIA's generous wage packet for time travellers, is there? Dick.
“They also explained to me if I did so, it could spell the end of the human race because it would cause a paradox" he went on to say.
For me personally that's just an added bonus. The end of the human race AND a winning lottery ticket? I wouldn't think twice. Sign me up. A yacht in the Bahamas and a post-apocalyptic earth. Dream.
