I'm on the fence about whether adding the weasel word "virtually" is any better.



I think the term "for a living" is more important.

How would you interpret the phrase "It's impossible for an individual to play the lottery for a living"?

Technically we both know it IS possible, technically. But in the real world? I don't know, but I wouldn't be suggesting anyone out there try make a living playing the lotto.


It’s not a weasel word. A weasel word is used to mask a lack of sources or data, that’s not the case here.
