Bei den fünf Buchstaben L-O-T-T-O wird bei der Mehrheit der Menschen in vielen Sprachen eine Hoffnung wachgerufen: Der Traum von Reichtum, Glück und vor allem der Traum davon, nicht mehr arbeiten zu müssen. In Deutschland hat die nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg neu ins Leben gerufene staatliche Lotterie im Laufe der Jahrzehnte mittlerweile rund 1.500 Lotto-Millionäre hervorgebracht; doch hat es sich rückblickend auf die weitere Lebensgeschichte der Lotto-Millionäre für manche als fatal erwiesen, sofort nach dem Erhalt eines Lottogewinns den Job zu kündigen – die größte aller Hoffnungen, die an einem Lottogewinn hängt, ist somit tatsächlich eine Illusion. Die Leere und Sinnsuche, die durch Übermut entsteht, kann also nicht durch den Kauf eines Lamborghinis, Maseratis oder Porsches, von einem Penthouse in London, Barcelona, am New Yorker Central Park und evtl. der Anschaffung einer eigenen Yacht, wenn man den Jackpot geknackt hat, gefüllt werden. Viel Geld führt also nicht gleich zu einem besseren Leben – wohl aber zu einem sehr viel Geldsorgen-freieren Leben. Es ist sehr befreiend und beruhigend, nicht mehr daran denken zu müssen, wie man Wohnungsmiete oder Kredite und Rechnungen begleicht, falls es mit dem Job mal nicht mehr so gut läuft. Deshalb wird es Sie sicherlich interessieren zu erfahren, dass Sie in diesem Ebook viel Hintergrundwissen über das deutsche Lotto und über die europäische Variante, die EuroMillions, vermittelt bekommen. Sie erfahren, welche unterschiedlichen Varianten und Erfolgsquoten es im Lotto gibt und wie Sie in Zukunft erfolgreicher Lotto spielen – Immer den Jackpot vor Augen.

Omnipotence for the Millions

Omnipotence for the Millions is best described as a weeping man's bedroom farce, a tale of infuriatingly ineluctable agape and abortive misanthropy, of a love-hate triangle of rivalrous comrades and wives, of human intersubjectivity conceived as a world wherein everyone is constantly enacting exasperatingly ambiguous atrocities on everyone else and everyone's kind of pissed off about it probably but nobody's quite sure. It is the story of a certain Mr. Smithers and his close associate and rival Mr. Smith, and their unfortunate intertwining in the fast-paced back-slappingly fulfilling industry of late night self-help infomercial production. Smithers’ mercy-begging detestation of his putative buddy is, it would seem, no match for the latter's obliviously cheerful ability to just not get it. At various points Smithers is called upon to serve not only as Smith's best friend, his employer, his wife’s lover, his business partner and his archrival, but also as his teacher (in a formal classroom setting) and as his valet. The two men, like all two men, are tacitly struggling for the same quantum of virtual space--job, money, status, women, existential authenticity, all of which are in limited supply. And yet, by dint of some sadistically neutral cosmic conspiracy, they're forced to stand around talking to each other all the time. The subject of this book, broadly speaking, is that old-time sideshow favorite formerly known as The Human Condition, in this case construed as an elaboration of what's so bad about ever having to be in the same room with anyone else.

Sean Thomas was single, thirty-seven and, by his own admission, just 'a tiny bit desperate' to meet the woman of his dreams, when he was asked by a men's magazine to do a feature on Internet dating. Millions of Women Are Waiting to Meet You is a poignant, hilarious and gloriously indiscreet diary of the dates, good and bad. There was the Chinese girl who stalked him, the Welsh girl who dumped him, the vivacious young woman who turned out to be rather too pro, and then there was someone he fell in love with. If you want to know what men think about sex, read this book. Read it too if you believe that love and romance could be a click away, waiting in that intriguing, twilight world of the Internet.

What time of year do teenage girls search for prom dresses online? How does the quick adoption of technology affect business success (and how is that related to corn farmers in Iowa)? How do time and money affect the gender of visitors to online dating sites? And how is the Internet itself affecting the way we experience the world? In Click, Bill Tancer takes us behind the scenes into the massive database of online intelligence to reveal the naked truth about how we use the Web, navigate to sites, and search for information--and what all of that says about who we are. As online directories replace the yellow pages, search engines replace traditional research, and news sites replace newsprint, we are in an age in which we've come to rely tremendously on the Internet--leaving behind a trail of information about ourselves as a culture and the direction in which we are headed. With surprising and practical insight, Tancer demonstrates how the Internet is changing the way we absorb information and how understanding that change can be used to our advantage in business and in life. Click analyzes the new generation of consumerism in a way no other book has before, showing how we use the Internet, and how those trends provide a wealth of market research nearly as vast as the Internet itself. Understanding how we change is integral to our success. After all, we are what we click.

China's Millions

Banner-carrying Salvation Army marchers, stone-silent Quakers, jumpy Midwestern revivalists, closed-fellowship Brethren, and Prayer-book Anglicans all made up the mixed multitude sent to the Middle Kingdom by the China Inland Mission (CIM). In China's Millions, the newest volume of the acclaimed Studies in the History of Christian Missions series, veteran historian Alvyn Austin crafts a compelling narrative of the sprawling history of the China Inland Mission. Austin explores two questions: How did British evangelicalism feed into American fundamentalism, eventually becoming global Protestantism, and how did evangelical Christianity become Chinese? Along the way he introduces readers to a remarkable array of sights, from the visionary, charismatic sect-leader Pastor Hsi, to the wordless book, a missionary teaching device that fit perfectly with Chinese color cosmology, to the opium-soaked aftermath of the North China Famine of 1877-79. Clear, readable, and well researched, China's Millions digs deeply into the Chinese and Western past to tell a story that no one would think to tell, the strange yet hopeful result of two cultures colliding.
