As far as questioning the meaning of the word "forge"goes, you can forge ahead, forge a partnership, forge through a blizzard or go to Valley Forge. But you can't forge an official lottery ticket.

Awe, but your choice of using the word forge and not forged, is not the same as the original context that it was used in the news article. Yes, you are correct in the many different ways that you have used "Forge"! But as the news article stated, "Pa. Man Charged With Redeeming Forged Winning Lottery Ticket". Please take note, the key word there is Forged! Again, the word Forge has many different meanings when used in the proper context (just as you have done above Justxploring). I questioned a persons ability to know the definition of the word "Forged", nothing more!

Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

    The statement was "A Pennsylvania man is accused of redeeming a forged lottery ticket" not forging a lottery ticket.  From what I've read from other sources, the authorities are thinking like me that it's unlikely this guy would have acted alone for the benefits of his co workers, they are convinced others were involved and are investigating.

      1. To advance gradually but steadily: forged ahead through throngs of shoppers.
      2. To advance with an abrupt increase of speed: forged into first place with seconds to go.
      3. adj : reproduced fraudulently; "like a bad penny..."; "a forged twenty dollar bill"

      With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

        I am ducking all the mud slinging on the board here...

        These verbal jousting matches really quack me up.

          BaristaExpress-

          So, you're a gambler. You say you also shoot from the hip. I got a feeling you also shoot off at the mouth.

          I wonder what other gamblers who go to Vegas to gamble would think if the casino had a game where the odds of winning were 176 million to one. Can you see them placing $20 & $100 bets? I think not.

          A gambler bets when he thinks he has a good chance of winning. Even though the odds favor the house a gambler calulates the risks verses the rewards and places his bets accordingly.

          I bet that you're a piss poor gambler. Now that's a bet I would call a sure thing.

          With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

            A Gambler I am! The lottery is a form of gambling! Even though I love to shoot craps, play 3-card poker and a little blackjack (I hate those 6 deck shoes they use though) but nonetheless I play a little once in a blue moon! 

             

            I lived in Las Vegas for 7 years before moving to where I live now! Before that I lived in Southern Calif. all my life and visited & vacationed for a week at a time with the wife in Las Vegas for years! So you made the wrong bet! Yes, everyone knows the house is favored and if you stay at a table long enough you're going to start to lose! It's the smart gambler that knows when to take what winnings he does have and walk away! I'm not saying I haven't lost my butt there, because I have and for anyone to say that haven't would be a liar, and liar I am not!

             

            DirtyWrat, I may shoot off my mouth at times (no different than you at the moment) everyone does at some point in their life! But DirtyWrat, I see the kettle calling the pot black right now at the moment!      And I can say, I don't stick my nose in others peoples business, like you do Mrs. Cravats! That's one thing I never "EVER" do! Both my parents taught me something very valuable that I know to be fact. I’m going to make a bet that I know is a sure winning bet for me. I bet you’re guilty of both scenarios that are about to follow! (I quote) "Only a fool sticks their nose in other peoples business and if they do it when asked too, they’re even a bigger fool with no brains”! (Unquote)

              Ok. Maybe you're right. Maybe I'm poking my nose where it doesn't belong.

              It seemed to me that you were being a little harsh toward TheGameGrl for no apparent reason so I made some comments that maybe I shouldn't have. Maybe I'm suffering from "The knight in shining armor rescuing the damsel in distress" syndrome. If you had been harassing TheGameBoy I probably would have cared less.

              I jumped all over Cash Only in another thread for what I thought at the time was a valid reason, but now I regret saying what I did. Cash, if you read this post you have my sincerest apologies.

              Lets put all of this ugliness behind us and get back to lottery discussion where we should have been to start with.

                DirtyWrat, that sounds just great to me. And we can do that! But in all fairness, please remember I did say that there is no such thing as a gray area when it pertains to anything being forged! I just don't see how anyone could see any gray, what so ever in something of that nature! That's all. Later dude.

                Have a good day DirtyWrat.

                  I wonder why he can't speak to any of his lotto pool members?  A lot of pertinent info is missing.

                  i agree.

                    ruh roh..... so how many others are involved? and is he indeed a patsy?

                      Maybe his coworkers were involved. I wonder if the coworkers involved in the pool were part of this stunt? I hope more comes out about this story.
