i wonder if this will entice todd to buy a ticket Smiley

I think he will when he goes into the service staion to grab that Dr. Pepper, but I hope he has time to work on some self picks and not be forced to resort to Quick Picks (My fingers pain just typing those two words - lol)

    Ammo prices have skyrocketed.  It'd be cheaper just to keep living where you are.

    Everything with copper or brass has skyrocketed over the last few years.

      Pet peeve: people who think they or someone/something needs to set limits on how much money others should have. I do find it ironic that those in govt usually propose that sort of thing after they have made their millions by virtue of their govt job (Congress) allowing insider trading.  They then brainwash the masses with the greed of envy saying key phrases like 'fair share', 'rich white dudes', 'evil rich', and 'greedy corporations'.

      I don't care if people think there should be some mechanism that gaurantees multiple winners. What I don't iunderstand is the implicit acknowledgement that they're too stupid to do a better job of sharing the money than leaving it up to random chance. If I win that much money it will be shared with plenty of people, but they'll be people I choose instead of a bunch of random strangers.

        I Agree!   Obama will get his 35% and he can do whatever he wants with it and the state of Iowa will get their 5%,but most of it will go to me to do what I please with.I'll "spread the wealth" in my own way,thank you very much.
