If I were a going nowhere in life clerk and saw a chance to get the good life by getting away with swiping one little piece of paper, the temptation would be really on to do it.  Money is definitely freedom. I don't know how lotteries can avoid this scenario happening again and again. Sign your tickets.

the problem for me in stealing or taking what is some else's is me

i like having a clean conscience, after all i have to live with myself for the rest of my life and i like living with someone i trust.

 

the odds do not mean much to those who win the jackpot

    A lot of going nowhere in life people would agree with you on that, Sagan.  So, one hopes, would a lot of 'going somewhere in life' (whatever that means) ones.

      I still don't understand why so many people are getting ripped off this way. It's not that hard to go online to check your numbers or go to the store and ask for a print out. It really isn't that hard to read six numbers. If it's a challenge to check your lotto ticket, then you are going to probably have a ton of trouble keeping track of a bunch of money.
