Sam, an unemployed piano tuner, said it was only the second thing he had ever won in his life. The first thing was an Afghan blanket at a church raffle when he was 25 years old. But this was much bigger: it was $120,000! He had won the Big Cube, a state lottery game. To win, a contestant must first guess which number a spinning cube will stop on. The cube has six numbers on it: 1X, 10X, 50X, 100X, 500X, and 1000X. If he is correct, the contestant must then guess which of two selected variables is going to be greater. So, just guessing which number appears on the cube does not guarantee that you will win any money.

Sam correctly guessed 1000X, but he still had to choose between two variables. One variable was the number of cars that would run the stop sign at Hill Street and Lake Avenue in six hours. The other variable was the number of times that a teenage boy would change TV channels in a three-hour period. This was a tough decision.

Finally, Sam flipped a coin. It came up heads, so Sam picked the teenager. He picked right. The stop sign was run only 76 times, but the teen clicked 120 times. Sixty-year-old Sam jumped for joy, for he had just won 1000 times 120, or $120,000. Sam dreamily left the lottery studio. Talking excitedly on his cell phone while crossing the street, he got hit by a little sports car.

Sam is slowly getting better. He was in the hospital for a month. His hospital bill was $110,000. And the insurance company for the little sports car's owner sued Sam for $9,000 worth of repairs. Also, Sam still has to pay federal taxes on his winnings. Sam doesn't play the state lottery any more. He says it's better to be unlucky.

Không được may mắn thì tốt hơn

Sam một người chỉnh dây đàn piano thất nghiệp, nói đó chỉ là lần thứ hai ông thắng trong đời. Lần đầu tiên ông thắng được là cái mền Afganistan trong cuộc sổ xố ở nhà thờ khi ông 25 tuổi. Nhưng lần này lớn hơn nhiều: đó là $120,000! Ông đã thắng trò chơi Big Cube, sổ xố liên bang. Để thắng, người chơi phải đầu tiên đoán được khối lập phương sẽ ngừng quay ở con số nào. Khối lập phương có 6 số: 1X, 10X, 50X, 100X, 500X, và 1000X. Nếu đón đúng, người chơi phải tiếp tục đoán hai thông số lựa chọn cái nào lớn hơn. Nên, chỉ đoán số nào xuất hiện trên khối lập phương không đảm bảo bạn sẽ thắng được đồng nào.

Sam đoán đúng 1000X, nhưng ông phải chọn giữa hai thông số. Một thông số là số lượng xe chạy qua bảng ngừng ở đu7o2ng Hill và Lake Avenue trong sáu giờ. Thông số khác là số lần một bé trai tuổi teen có thể đổi kênh TV trong thời gian ba giờ. Đó là một quyết định khó.

Cuối cùng, Sam tung đồng xu. Mặt ngửa hình, nên Sam chọn cậu bé. Ông chọn đúng. Bảng dừng chỉ chạy 76 lần, nhưng đứa bé nhấn 120 lần. Sam sáu mươi tuổi nhảy cẩng lên vui mừng, vì ông đã thắng 1000 lần 120, hay $120,000. Sam mơ mộng rời phòng sổ xố. Nói chuyện một các hào hứng qua điện thoại di động khi băng qua đường, ông bị đụng bởi chiếc xe thể thao nhỏ.

Sam khá hơn một cách chậm chạp. Ông ở trong bệnh viện một tháng. Hoá đơn bệnh viện là $110,000. Và công ty bảo hiểm cho chủ chiếc xe thể thao nhỏ kiện Sam $9,000 tiền sửa xe. Sam cũng phải trả tiền thuế liên bang cho tiền thưởng. Sam không chơi sổ xố liên bang nữa. Ông nói tốt hơn là không được may mắn.

Sam, một người thợ chỉnh âm đàn piano thất nghiệp, cho biết đó là lần thứ hai ông từng thắng cuộc trong đời mình. Món đầu tiên là một cái chăn Ap-ga-ni-xtan ở một cuộc xổ số tại nhà thờ lúc ông 25 tuổi. Nhưng cái này thì lớn hơn rất nhiều; đó là 120.000 đô-la! Ông vừa chiến thắng ở Big Cube, một trò chơi xổ số của tiểu bang. Để chiến thắng, đầu tiên người chơi phải đoán được cục xí ngầu đang quay sẽ ngừng ở số nào. Cục xí ngầu có sáu số: 1X, 10X, 50X, 100X, 500X và 1.000X. Nếu đoán đúng, sau đó người chơi phải đoán cho được hai biến số được chọn nào sẽ lớn hơn. Vì thế, chỉ đoán được con số xuất hiện trên cục xí ngầu không có gì chắn chắn là bạn sẽ thắng được bất cứ món tiền nào.

Sam đã đoán đúng số 1.000X, nhưng ông vẫn phải chọn giữa hai biến số. Biến số thứ nhất là tổng số xe sẽ chạy đến biển báo dừng tại Hill Street và Lake Avenue trong vòng sáu tiếng đồng hồ. Biến số kia là tổng số lần mà một cậu thiếu niên sẽ chuyển đổi các kênh ti-vi trong thời điểm ba tiếng đồng hồ. Đây là một quyết định khó khăn.

Cuối cùng, Sam tung một đồng xu. Đồng xu ngữa, vì thế Sam chọn cậu thiếu niên. Ông đã chọn lựa đúng đắn. Biển báo dừng chỉ chạy 76 lần, nhưng các cậu bé đã bấm 120 lần. Sam sáu-mươi-tuổi đã nhảy lên vì vui sướng, vì ông vừa thắng 1.000 lần của 120, hay 120.000 đô-la. Sam mơ màng bước ra khỏi phòng xổ số. Nói chuyện một cách phấn khích trên điện thoại cầm tay trong lúc băng qua đường, ông bị một chiếc xe thể thao nhỏ tông phải.

Sam đang từ từ bình phục. Ông nằm trong bệnh viện một tháng trời. Hoá đơn bệnh viện của ông là 110.000 đô-la. Và công ty bảo hiểm của chủ chiếc xe hơi thể thao nhỏ kiện ông 9.000 đô-la tiền sửa chữa. Ngoài ra, Sam vẫn còn phải trả tiền thuế tiểu bang cho chiến thắng của ông. Sam không chơi sổ xố liên bang lần nào nữa. Thà không được may mắn thì còn tốt hơn biết bao nhiêu, ông nói.

ESL đăng ký: Bạn không cần phải đăng ký gì cả. Chỉ việc nhẩy vào bài ESL 1 học và làm bài tập. Tiếp tục những bài kế tiếp càng nhanh càng tốt. Mình sẽ 888 và thỉnh thoảng cùng nhau nhắc nhở cho vui hén. Chứ thật ra việc học là việc của tự bản thân mình. Mình giỏi thì mình được nhờ hén.
