I can't speak for women any better than you can.

And you can't.

Or maybe you got one of them "feminine sides" the libs talk about all the time.

I know Max knows what I'm talkin' about though.

She won't get down and root around in garbage either.

Yup, your a definite shoe-in for a garbage industry endorsed,  presidential candidate!  Can I be on your election committee? I promise to be your

biggest cheer leader.  Hyper

    "IT JUST NOW BECAME ALL NASTY AND DISGUSTING...AS OPPOSED TO BEFORE NOW..."

    It became "all nasty and disgusting" to me when the providers, the breadwinners, the patriarchs of their respective families began revelling about their exploits and endeavors  in groveling around in other people's garbage and waste.

    This is no recent groundbreaking revelation, you either have pride and dignity as a man or you don't.

    In my family, men don't grovel around in other people's garbage for any reason.

    Maybe in your family they do.

     

    "Seems to me she kicked pride to the curb and it payed off!!!"   

    It's "paid" not "payed".

    But more importantly, though you and others like you may kick your pride to the curb for money, I and a lot of others never will.

    It's just not in our DNA.

    Sorry 'bout the typo...I'm not perfect. I never knew that checking discarded tickets, out of a trash can, was a form of lowering my pride, ridge. I think of it as more of an adventure with the high possibility of a reward...kinda like the lady we're talkin' about.

    So, let's examine this. A man has lost his job, and is doing everything he can to take care of his family. He heard about such possibilities of finding valuable tickets and gives it a shot in the dark, okay. This same man discovers a ticket discarded with a $50K prize which saves him and his family from going completely under. Now, he had lots of pride but, he put it aside and it ends up saving him. What do you say about this man who's the bread winner...the patriarch of his family who exploited himself with an endeavor by checking garbage cans and groveling?

    What really matters in the end, ridge? Yeah, men are supposed to be proud. But, REAL MEN AREN'T OVERLY PROUD. There is a such thing as being TOO PROUD. Be very, very careful in claiming what you will or won't do in this life, ridge. A real man does what he has to do when it comes to his family. You're very close to saying you wouldn't do what's necessary to try and care for your family because of your pride.

    I'm going to leave this alone because it's taken a serious turn for the worse at my own expense. Take it easy.

      Seems like when your running out of anything sensible to say, you resort to calling male posters "feminine". In many ways, that is a compliment.

      Women are beautiful, intelligent, and and very resourceful when it comes to achieving their goals in life. You need to continue to call all of us male

      posters "feminine". This is the highest compliment you could ever give to any one of us. Women YOU ROCK!!!

        " I think of it as more of an adventure..."

        Now see, there's the dichotomy between you and me. When I think of adventure, I think of hunting bear or elk in the mountains - you think of groveling around in somebody's garbage. Sorry, but I just can't relate to that.

        And your scenario of a man losing his job and needing to feed his family is just a wee bit silly, isn't it?

        I mean really, what kind of man, faced with that prospect, is gonna say to his wife: "Well honey, I know you and the kids are hungry but don't worry, I've got a plan! Yes honey, I'm gonna go out and dig through people's garbage cans to see if anybody threw away a winning lottery ticket!"

        And of course she'd swoon and say: "You're my hero!"

         

        " But, REAL MEN AREN'T OVERLY PROUD."

        Yes they are.

         

        "There is a such thing as being TOO PROUD."

        No there isn't.

         

        "Be very, very careful in claiming what you will or won't do in this life..."

        Careful never leaves the house.

         

        "A real man does what he has to do when it comes to his family."

        That's right, including laying down his life but digging around in other people's garbage cans is not one of the options a man considers.

        How would you feel if one of your friends said: "Hey Lucky Loser, I ran into your father today. He was groveling around in the garbage can at 7-11!"

        Could you live with that?

        I couldn't.

          I've been down and I've been stone broke.  We have lived on cans of soup and cereal (with water) for weeks on end.  Never did we go on public aide nor did we root around in trash or garbage.  The lessons we learned from 'living lean' were to make our choices matter and that every choice makes a difference.  EVERY CHOICE makes a difference.  Trash was not one of 'our' choices.

          That's not to say that others can't make different choices.  Those are just the choices my family makes.

                    Hey now I have two kitties (including one adopted from a hoarder home) and my house is very, very  clean (and I clean it myself and work two jobs).

                    The kitty from an animal hoarder home took a year to adjust since she was not used to rules, a  schedule and a clean home.

                    Those hoarders should not have any animals.

                      You are so on the money Artist! Nothin' against the hoarders, but their lifestyle would not be at all conducive, to raising an animal with humane

                          max, I'm glad you got the point here and there's absolutely no harm in your previous response. However, this whole deal revolves around getting lucky with finding valuable discarded tickets in "not so dirty" disposal cans. I was merely describing how this could possibly be very adventurous, and, financially prospering for a certain type of individual that enjoys all things lottery. No, it's not the cleanest thing for anyone to be doing but, it wasn't about the clean factor. It was about money being found that was thrown away by careless and uninformed individuals. Am I right so far?

                          Then, the whole thing was turned into a Pride and Prejudice re-take of sorts...about what a man and/or his family shouldn't be doing. It was never about survival or putting food on the table by doing such things. My lunch via scratch ticket of $5 was taken completely out of context as I was using it only as an example of how I put such a find to good use and fed myself. For this matter, it could've been $5 worth of gas! That was it...nothing more nothing less. Where the hell does pride fit in this? Should I have been too proud to have lunch on a ticket that I found inside a can full of other papers and scratch tickets?

                          How off topic, immature, and disrespectful is dragging a person's family or pride into a discussion like this? In the end though, big game hunters go out and look for big game in various places...this is what they enjoy. Lottery players go out and look for tickets in various places...this is what they enjoy. The hunter finds a big elk and the lottery player finds a $1 million dollar ticket!!! Is this not a wash? It was a very, very simple discussion.

                          As I last said, we don't live in a bad world...we live in a good world with lots of confused individuals. For the record, I don't see you as confused. Here's to healthy living and happy lotto, max!!!Cheers

                            Then, the whole thing was turned into a Pride and Prejudice re-take of sorts...about what a man and/or his family shouldn't be doing. It was never about survival or putting food on the table by doing such things. My lunch via scratch ticket of $5 was taken completely out of context as I was using it only as an example of how I put such a find to good use and fed myself. For this matter, it could've been $5 worth of gas! That was it...nothing more nothing less. Where the hell does pride fit in this? Should I have been too proud to have lunch on a ticket that I found inside a can full of other papers and scratch tickets?

                            How off topic, immature, and disrespectful is dragging a person's family or pride into a discussion like this? In the end though, big game hunters go out and look for big game in various places...this is what they enjoy. Lottery players go out and look for tickets in various places...this is what they enjoy. The hunter finds a big elk and the lottery player finds a $1 million dollar ticket!!! Is this not a wash? It was a very, very simple discussion.

                            As I last said, we don't live in a bad world...we live in a good world with lots of confused individuals. For the record, I don't see you as confused. Here's to healthy living and happy lotto, max!!!Cheers

                             

                            L.L.

                            LL - ok lottery-wise response.  just as i stick to my budget and wouldnt go beyond it to spend more than what i have planned (as it would take money from other non-lottery portions of my budget e.g. food, utilities, etc.) there are other 'no-go' areas. 

                            For me, digging around/sorting through what ever kind of verbiage you choose to use, of going through a discard pile (aka trash) is a 'no-go'.  If the recycle bin we are talking about is the one at my HOME or the one at MY office, then yes, I would go through it, as I know what types of things go into and most importantly - to me - I know WHO uses them. 

                            And stretching a point, if **I** tossed the last thing into a public bin and realized that I threw the items from the wrong hand into the bin, I MIGHT go after them to retrieve them.  (remember - last thing tossed in - e.g. TOP item - STILL is only a 'maybe').

                            Call it pride, call it germ-awareness, call it what you will, I won't go through a trash/recycle bin checking old discarded not-by-me lottery tickets.

                            Safe to say, I am not calling up old movie titles here, nor going to any extreme, just saying, that dumpster-diving of any variety is not on my to-do list on any day.

                            However, I do save all my lottery tickets for the year and they are totalled up and subtracted from my winnings to give me a lower net-taxable (page 1 vs schedule a) bottom line.

                            oh... and we are (family-wise) hunters - be that of the perfect lottery wheel, combinations of numbers that mean something, or going out and bagging game that feeds several branches of the family all winter (we have a butcher in the family for meat, and a lawyer in the family for any future planned (of course) lottery financial wind-fall disbursements - we are organized non-dumpster-divers!)  Thumbs Up

                              Whew! A very time consuming post, to explain your garbage views.  As usual, this has nothin' to do with this thread, forum or topic whatsoever.

                              Had this been a post from sully, CD, max or any other of your bud's, we wouldn't even be having this pleasant chat.  Yes Nod

                              On top of all this, just how far fetched is the possibility of a man finding a big ticket and fixing some financial problems? The lady in question did exactly the same thing only the circumstances were different. I'm 99.99% sure she was going to fix some financial issues and eat off of that money along with probably helping some people close to her. What else do you do with money? 

                              Maybe I should be out with my shotgun way "up thar in them thar hills 'a lookin' fer the big elk" that ate the million dollar scratch off that noone's a' claimed yet. I'll find that elk, bust a cap in 'em, cut 'em open a take that thar ticket up in to the lotto peoples for 'a cashin' it!!!! Oh, I gotta clean that thar ticket first, tho', or it'll be plenty unacceptable for 'em.

                              Yeah, maybe this is more manly and full of pride. Goin' to get my shotgun and buckshots right now I tell ya!!!!! Just you wait...
