It's really quite simple. Everything that distinguishes a man from a woman and a woman from a man is sexualized. Women have breasts, men don't so breasts are sexualized and men tend to prefer larger breasts (within reason).

Men tend to be taller than women so tallness has become part of the male sexualization. It is considered more attractive (again, within reason).

You're missing the point. The value in the lottery ticket is that it opens up possibilities for daydreaming. You just made that daydream even more entertaining. Ever seen the TV series Fargo? Guy finds a bag of money, builds a grocery imperium and gets visited by a crook. Seems like you could even make lots of money by turning it into a TV series!

I thought of that decades ago. In fact I even thought one step further. I figure I could also fantasize about finding a bag full of money on the street. Or finding a lottery ticket that would win the lottery. That's about as unlikely as buying a ticket and winning the lottery and it's free!
