Shinto two and a half times luckier than Buddhism or Feng Shui


Following on from yesterday’s post showing us that the best way of getting rich quick is the lottery, here’s a survey from goo Ranking about where people keep their lottery tickets. As usual for these ranking surveys, there is no demographic information and the rank for each choice is expressed as a percentage of the votes for the top answer. The survey was conducted towards the end of August.

Don’t ask me why people put their tickets in the fridge, but if anyone else knows, please leave me a message.

Q: Where do you put your lottery tickets for safe keeping?

Rank Place Score
1 In a drawer or on a shelf 100
2 Just whereever, no particular place 63.5
3 In my wallet 48.6
4 Household Shinto shrine 32.6
5 Household Buddhist altar 12.5
6 In a west-facing direction (Feng Shui) 12.5

8 On top of the television 8.3
9 In the refrigerator or freezer 8.3
10 Same place as my secret stash of cash 2.8

    I’ll guess so they see them regularly and remember to check the drawing quickly.

    It’s not so different than putting them ON the ‘fridge with a magnet, but looks cleaner from the outside.
