well, ok. Good luck to you then. Maybe you are right about Vegas too. 

 

You've inspired me, I think I'm gonna go and spend $400 on tickets now.

 

You spent that money on June 18 of last year! I like your time machine.  Thumbs Up

    Nope, not crazy. Just REALLY want to win! Just because I can spend $1,000 doesn't mean I don't want or need a jackpot win. More money is always good, especially for big boy (and girl) toys, my friend.

    Unless my eyes and mind are playing tricks on me then the 500 lines of tickets I bought today are very real. There was no promotion in my area for 600 lines at $1,000  The clerk at the store I bought them from even kissed the pile of tickets before handing them to me and wished me good luck. I will need it. LOL You never know!

    Well if you can afford it , great!  I hope no one spends $1000 unless they own their own homes, have 6 months emergency funds in the bank and decent retirement savings for their age.  I do but I still can't bring myself to spend a few more dollars. I would cringe at $20.

      Careful Artist, don't want to be giving out to much personal information. Now if we could just get your home address, maybe someone could figure out

      how to get into your 6 months emergency funds.  Hiding Behind Computer        LOL

        Listen, I'm not encouraging anyone to go and spend more than they can afford to lose. Only spend what you can afford to lose and also laugh about if you win nothing. Don't go and spend the milk money. I could afford to spend $1,000 I wanted to spend it and so I made the gamble and did.

        Having said that, the jackpot hasn't been this high in about 6 months and a jackpot this large and life changing doesn't come around every day. $150,000,000 after taxes would change anyone's life more than they could possibly understand, unless one is very wealthy already.

        I have my fingers crossed for Wednesday!

              dude, don't be upset. I seriously wish you luck and just a bit jelous. To be honest, hunting the lotteries lately i spent not much less, but little by little.

                Never said you were wrong whiteballz. But when referring to a sophisticated aircraft that just came out, calling it a G6 is misleading to anyone

                in the Aviation field. I'm sure you know everything there is about this aircraft, including climb rates, top air-speeds, range, cargo capacity, etc, so

                I apologize if you were offended in any way. Disapprove

                no offence taken, just trying to make a joke is all Banana

                  Thanks mcginnin!

                  I have my fingers AND toes crossed. Well, my fingers, I'm still workin' on being able to do it with ALL my toes. LOL 

                  If you're in this drawing for Wednesday and hit the jackpot I will be very happy for you. Whatever you do, don't go broke like a lot of other lottery winners (losers) have. But something tells me you're too smart to be that frivilous anway.

                        I think I'm going to sit this one out. I prefer mega millions myself. Good luck to you on Powerball if you decide to play.

                              Just three. One self pick, two QP's.

                              I've been making plans for quite some time now. From the time I find out, my elaborate spending and investment plans will be unleashed.
