Your inability or unwillingness to understand mathematics leaves you with your usual method of reply - insults and attacks. Pathetic.

Actually, he's kind of funny.   You should simply sit back and enjoy a dumb guy making sure that he emphatically and unambiguously demonstrates how dumb he is, especially when he's totally oblivious to it.

There's lots and lots and lots of literature about precisely this kind of thing, and much of it is considered hilarious.

And who cares if he insults people?    He's not exactly the kind of guy that you would want to praise you, is he?

Why sweat it?

      Hey, one of my favorite cowards is back!

      The one who likes to throw insults and then run and hide for a couple months cuz he can't take the heat.

      Did you think I forgot about our previous exchange on April 5th and 6th when you ran and hid after I responded to you?

      It's right here in this thread:

      http://www.lotterypost.com/news/229861/2013536

      Do you remember the very next time you posted?

      It was on May 29th and it was just another attack on me from which you ran and hid until now.

      You can see it in this thread:

      http://www.lotterypost.com/news/232000/2075929

      And now you've come back to do a little more hit and run and hide sniping. How brave of you! You're my hero! You said the U.S. deserves to be a third world country. I'll bet your daddy is proud of his little weasel! You're probably a chip off the old block!

      Actually you're a lot like the Tennessee Lottery - no balls.

      See ya in a couple months!

        Here we go, another hijacked thread. For a lottery forum, it is amazing how little the topic of lottery is discussed. Maybe it should be renamed Insult Post.

          I know, little man, life must be a street of broken dreams for you.

          You can't even trick anybody into joining your pool now that they've heard what you did with the money the last two times.

          Give it time, little one.

          I'm here for you.

            Congrats to the winners but I have to get this off my chest.

             

            I think any man/woman/child who takes in a mulitiple million dollar winfall and still has the audacity to say they aren't going to quit their lower income paying job, is far from nice people. With the amount of people out of work, does society really need a multi millionare working the cash register at costco? Sure its a free world, be use some common sense for crying out loud. The internet youngings would call these types of people attention Wh$res. Whats wrong with saying "i'm gonna give my job up to someone who is in the unemployment line" And then make sure Costco actually hires someone to fill your position.

              I know the upside for them is that they did win and they have millions, but this is an example why if I ever did join a group it would be a small one. They won $70 million but they only take home $3.5 million. I mean I'd definitely love to take home $3.5 million and would be stoked, but if I won a jackpot worth $70 million I'd be a bit disappointed about taking home only a small fraction of that.

              Congrats to them though, hope they spend it wisely.

                I don't know if anybody's ever checked but I would bet that not many millionaires really stay too long at those jobs.

                Can you imagine a long boring or hard day at work and all you want to do is go home and you know you have the money to be out doing anything you'd like? I don't think too many of them would deal with that under those circumstances. I know I wouldn't.

                Working for yourself would be totally different though. The boss can come and go as he pleases.

                  I agree.  I often find it sad, people that have the money to leave ANY job and do ANYTHING they want - STAY because they don't know what else to do.  I have seen stories of people that stay at jobs to MAKE a difference in people’s lives ect ( like teachers) and I understand that but not jobs you were doing to  'just make money' .

                  What kind of person stays at a job for Cosco when they can do almost ANYHING with their life? I would understand if you had a VESTED interest in the Cosco store - but in todays corporate world not even the CEO has a vested interest to a company that size.

                    Good point. Once though I would love to hear someone say they're given up their job so someone else can feed their family.

                      Congrats to the winners. Strength in numbers. Wish my co-workers were into lottery as I am. $5 a week per person is a very modest play. Combined with 20 x $5 = 100 tickets per week each individual shared. But wow, the tax is a killer took more than half. They will get tax again when they spend the cash, hope they spent it well.

                            rdgrnr isn't what is wrong, he is actually what is right. Feel free to believe that his politics are what's right, but he himself certainly didn't strike me as an example of what's right. Early on we had exchanges where he presented reasonable and cogent statements about his argument. As time went on I saw less and less of that and more and more vitriolic hyperbole, including claiming that some with a different opinion were traitors. If I had a ticket for every time he called somebody a libtard I'd probably have won a jackpot, and with some of his posts I could only imagine him sitting there red-faced and sputtering all over his keyboard as he typed. Unless your argument is really unfounded you should be able to suport it with reasoning and factual statements. I'd say an apparently increasing inability (or dislike) to present your argument without being rational and civil is definitely one of the things that's wrong nowadays. I appreciated some of his humor, and maybe some of what he displayed was just part of the persona he chose to present here, but the tone I saw in many of his posts represents part of the uglier side of politics and debate in contemporary society. I recall somebody else's post that may have suggested that he had some health issues. In all honesty, if he had hypertension or cardiac problems some of his posts make it very easy for me to imagine him having a stroke or heart attack while working himself up over some issue. Perhaps time will tell, and we'll hear actual news one way or another. If you have been studying US history you are using the wrong resources. Study September 11, 2001. Then you will understand why there are survivalists and anti-government types. Speaking of using the wrong resources, surely youseen some that mention Timothy McVeigh? You know, the anti-government zealot responsible for the worst terrorist attack in the US prior to 9/11. FWIW, his execution was on 6/11, exactly 3 months before the WTC attack. The anti-government and survivalist types were around long before he came along. I'm curious why you would single out the WTC attack in order to understand those them.

                            LOL!  1/29/11, That's when KY-Jelly Floyd came out to debate me - when everybody had declared me dead for 2 months already. What a hero! Early on in his one humongous paragraph he tells this lie:

                            "If I had a ticket for every time he called somebody a libtard I'd probably have won a jackpot..." 

                            KY-Jelly Floyd is a liar. I've never called anybody a libtard in my life.

                            I'll tell you what, KY-Jelly, prove what you said and I'll pay the note on your trailer.

                            And next time don't assume it's ok to debate me if you think I'm dead and you can make up all the lies you want..

                              Mathematically it takes ONE ticket with all the numbers from the call to win. Now thats the REAL math.

                              Now statistics of play and odds of play are NOT what is being discussed.

                               

                              Not a fan of group play either. Find it silly when the pot says we won 20 million , yet when all is said and done the person walks away with half a mill. Not really worthy of bragging rights ....

                              I figure if I win I win by my own accord and not riding the coat tails of other players.....
