Like fish? How about hybrid vehicles? Now you can throw money at both by buying a $25 raffle ticket in support of the New England Aquarium. The Aquarium is selling 4,000 raffle tickets and will use the estimated $90,000 (if all tickets are sold) net proceeds to further the aquarium's mission of "presenting, protecting and promoting the world of water". You can buy a ticket online. As Hybrid Review noted, if all 4,000 tickets are sold, then each one has a .025 percent chance of winning, so good luck. The drawing will be held around the end of October, right about the time I get over the cheesiness of an aquarium raffling off a "mariner".
