    The Green card lottery ad

    Has anyone clicked on the 'green card lottery' ad on here. The one that would let you live/work in the US.
    I clicked out of boredom and it honestly reads like a Nigerian prince was going to give me $25,0000.

    Does your husband/wife has job Or finished high school* ?
    Do you have job OR Have you finished high school * ?
    An applicant must have EITHER a high school education or its equivalent, defined in the U.S. as successful completion of a 12-year course of elementary and secondary education; OR two ears of work experience within the past five years

    I think it's being run by LOLcats..........Has you job and two ears?

    Not to mention the fact that UK nationals (except NI) are ineligible, so it's pretty bad targeting too.

    I looked into this too. The lottery can be applied for via an official site, so one has to assume these sites advertised are at best charging for something that is free, at worst are simply scams

    And yes, none of us are eligible anyway

    WTF that is so unfair, how is an Irish immigrant more 'diverse' than a UK one and why do NI residents get a special exemption? Anyone born in NI can claim Irish citizenship anyway so its not like they need to be singled out here?

    Not sure about the NI exemption, but mainland Ireland isn't exempt simply because they do not meet the ineligibility criteria of sending more than 50,000 immigrants to the US in the last 5 years. The question of their relative diversity doesn't enter into it, we just have more people emigrating to the US than they do.

    Yes but the 50,000 people in 5 years is completely arbitrary, what's 50,000 in a country of 300 million?
