Yes Nod  One turns EVERYTHING political, then throws personal insults at anyone who dares disagree with His Majesty.  I can't even finish reading threads when he gets involved.

Yep. There's a billion and one sites where folks can engage in personal mud-slinging over all things political.  Why it needs to be done on here is beyond me. And spare me the pap about 'freedom of speech' or some such nonsense.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow night.

      "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?

      thanks for clearing that up, i'll try not to use that in mixed company.

        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

        "...why is this person talking about demographic, which was starting to offend me..."

         

        Holy Goodnight, Louise, if you spend your life searching the world and parsing everybody's words for something to be "offended" by, you'll never be disappointed.

        But you'll spend the rest of your life being "offended" by one thing or another.

        Life is short, why not just relax and enjoy it?

        I hope you win the Powerball and are never "offended" by anything ever again.

          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.

          Let us know when there's an option to play for a quarter. The other multi-state jackpot game costs $1 for each chance with odds that are virtually the same as PB. My chances of winning that game are twice as good for a $2 bet as my chances of winning PB. Sensible people  balance risk and reward, and the cost of a chance is therisk. Comparing PB with MM, the PB odds *are* 1 in 350 million.

          I'm pretty sure you prefer your players to be stupid instead of well informed.

            Then you'd be an idiot not to block the person.

            Just as I'm sure plenty of people blocked you after you referred to Mormons in your state as rodents.

            Why you want to persecute people for their religious beliefs in a lottery forum is beyond me.

            Perhaps you could explain.

                          Judging from the number of second place winners, there's good chance it will roll.  Use to be and still is with  MM, you would see groups of 10 or more second place winners before the jackpot was won.

                            I am so not a liberal and if you knew me well and my views you would know that.

                             

                            I just wanted to stay on topic for once.
