OK, so you are saying you did believe the world was going to end on May 21 and then again on Oct 21. To believe that makes you a Christian? So what is your next best guess?

I know a way you can make your prediction more accurate. Stick a gun in your mouth.

I think when they researched the study, they spent most of their time in your neck of the woods.

I just got done sayin' I ain't religious, you hateful little runt.

But I believe people can believe whatever the hell they want in this country without interference from little third-world pukes like you.

So go piss up a rope.

    LOL, nice try, little guy. Very Clintonesque.

    "It depends on what the definition of "is" is."

    "I did not inhale."

    Who exactly were you referring to, numbnuts, the Whirling Dervishes?

    Because that's who we all relate the rapture to is the Whirling Dervishes, right?

    Typical lib spin but there's no lying your way out of this one, little man.

    Spin away, you're busted.

    Liar.

    i did inhale but gave it up by the time i  was 19.

    as usual you're making most of us laugh,

    i used to call it "clintonian times" LOL. Embarassed

      Yeah, I think the little guy studied him.

      YOU DIDN'T?

      "Well, it depends on what your definition of "sex" is."

      Libs, lol, they're all the same.

            ridgerunner, what does "piss up a rope" mean ?

            i love old time sayings and my parents,havin grown up on farms & ranches,had a millon of them,

            many times  when i was really young  i would hear a double meaning,

            ex. "you can't be to careful"

            as an adult i know that means,exercise the most caution,

            as a kid i thought it meant "take a chance"

            either way,it worked out .

              DAMIFIKNOW, I think it's just the southern version of "Go jump in the lake." I guess I shoulda asked before all the oldtimers passed on. They all said the same stuff all the time. If anybody ever come around lookin' for somebody, the answer was always the same - "He went to take a sh*t and the hogs ate him."

                  I imagine $300,000,000+ jackpots will become a lot more common considering the odds are now 1 in 350,447,020.

                  The odds are 1 in 1.4 billion for a quarter play; the cost of many break open. Or 1 in 17.5 millioon; the cost of the popular scratch ticket.

                    haymaker,

                    We were plaiyng Army out in the woods in Germany and this one night it snowed and snowed and snowed.

                    Our section chief told the first guy up to go outisde of the tent and see how much it had snowed. He was a farm kid from Illinois and came back in the tent and said, "Sarge, the snow out there is hub deep to a ferris wheel".

                    Scared

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    Lep

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      "Pissing up a rope" is something that only males can do.Females can't do it.It's a sexist reply to "women can do anything a man can do".Women might be able to do some things that a man can do,but can they piss up a rope?

                        Not sure what you mean by the "wrong demographic".  The lottery is random, so everyone has an equal chance of winning, no matter where they live. 

                        A state or a store does not win the lottery, people do.  I will never understand the obsession with a particular "state" winning the jackpot, other than it being fun to see someone close to home win it.  Saying that a particular "state" won to support the notion that the lottery somehow controls who wins is the same as saying that the lottery is rigged.  And that is not supported by a shred of evidence.

                        Since lots of jackpots are won in liquor stores, does that mean the "drunk demographic" is targeted by the lottery to win a lot?  Or does it mean that a lot of lottery tickets happen to be sold in liquor stores?  What about the jackpot that was sold in the porn shop?  Did the lottery decide that they needed a winner from the "porn demographic"?

                        Todd ,Iam glad you asked the question as to why is this person talking about demographic, which was starting to offend me, especially when he list these city which didn't make any sense and so what will happen if it " fall in the wrong demographic" insane I tell you insane. I have never had  to response to this LP member.Excuse! me but there is an unline something not right about what is being said and not being said.If you ask me it's not that the lottery is rigged.No NodNo No

                          It's probably better not to encourage him.  It only leads to him throwing the thread off-topic, since he finds it impossible not to try and get the last word on everything.

                          With all due respect Todd , I could say that about some other members on the LP.Yes Nod
