Gambling - Mankiw, via Cowen

Like Tyler Cowen, and despite my own addicitive personality, I have never found gambling of any interest at all. I am perplexed at those who even buy lottery tickets, though I vaguely understand the attraction.

Cowen's list is almost exactly mine.

I would disapprove of people who are usually late, people who smoke cigars in restaurants, people who play loud music late at night, and people who are not curious. Call me a prude if you want

Well I have always known I am a prude, and proud of it, sort of.

But in the end the point of this post is to suggest you read Greg Mankiw's original post. I think my percentages may be slightly different, but the same forces battle within me.
