You lose the ticket, which is picked up by a dirty unshaven homeless man. He uses his ticket to buy his way to wealth, glory and a razor, and sells his story to the media, acquiring fame. He begins to dabble in politics, then manipulate, and eventually sets himself up as a powerful tyrannical emperor, lording it over the land, his iron fist clenching your world in an unyielding grip. You go outside to get the mail and are crushed to a smear under the tread of a battle tank from his personal army.
I wish for Earth to be visited by interesting aliens.
