Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was always surprised, when living in the USA, at how many people spent lots of money gambling.  I like the bumper sticker that says "Gambling is for the mathematically challenged."

I personally enjoyed law school, the learning part, but never had any expectations of becoming wealthy.  Unlike the guy profiled in the article, I didn't kid myself that it gave me any special status, especially among the people whose opinions mattered to me.
