"If not for him, this place would be boring."

Mediabrat,

I rest my case. They've been a member for 11 whole days and believe it's boring discussing better ways to play and win lottery games.

Not every member here is necessarily a stone faced serious, all business, hard core lottery system geek.

Be thankful for the range and diversity of membership that we enjoy here.

That is the overriding success formula for Lottery Post.

    "Not every member here is necessarily a stone faced serious, all business, hard core lottery system geek."

    I don't recall anyone else saying what most, some, or a even a few of the members should be, but you had to say something because that new member likes your posts even if they are irrelevant or unrelated to the topic. Personally I don't care if you say you were driving through Wasilla, Alaska and post a photo of Times Square or say your ancestor won $1 million playing penny-ante poker when they came to American on the Mayflower. 

    I was simply pointing out that a new member is bored because the majority of members are discussing lottery related topics on a lottery related message board. Maybe if you ask management, they will create a new forum just for non lottery related topics.

    "Be thankful for the range and diversity of membership that we enjoy here."

    You must have missed it when I told Mediabrat "it takes participation to make a good message board and if all the off topic remarks were deleted, there would be very little to read.". Do you expect a gold star for repeating what I already said?

    "That is the overriding success formula for Lottery Post."

    As I already mentioned participation is important, but when there is too much diversity and when the majority of the participation is non lottery related, I doubt LP will get very much credibility from any state lottery. How much credibility will your idea of a successful formula add to the petition to ban computerized drawings?

          The "Time Machine Effect" depending upon the make and model of camera used, has been known to have a geographical quantum variance

          factor of +/-  1250 miles. The clues that that your observing, are providing invaluable tracking information for any future "aging effects" of this

          particular model of the Samsung digital camera.

           

          Congrat's on the narrowing down of the exact latitude/longitude of location Haymaker. Thumbs Up

          The only remaining mystery, would be the exact time this abnormality occurred. Looking forward to any additional clues to provide final closure.

          OK, but does it have the capability of the twilight zone camera ?

          maybe you could get a pic. of future winning ticket ?

            Very good question Haymaker!

            BTW that was season 2, episode 46. December 16, 1960. It was entitled "A Most Unusual Camera"

            That episode was more comical than anything else.  LOL


            I believe that technology is in the works! Can you imagine what the patent on that "unusual camera" would be worth.  What?

            Good job again by you and DC81 on narrowing down the location of pic!   Hurray!

                Mcginnin, who the heck is Stack? The forum police!! Is he serious? LP will lack credibility? With the state lotteries? Give me a break! Why does this site need crediblity! Is LP vying for state funding or something?

                When you read all these stories, how many times can you say you didn't win, or the person was foolish for spending all their lottery winnings or that some store clerk defrauded somebody and should go to jail. Boris was right, if not for mcginnin, there would be nothing new to discuss!

                I like your post, pics and enlightened feedback!!!! You're a quality person no matter what these guys say.

                Love,

                  Green laugh Your cracking me up Golfer! Yeah maybe there is some panhandling going on, to help subsidize our "Poor Creditability" ratings from the

                  scrutinizing eyes of the state lotteries.  Blue Thinking  Guess we must be getting some failing grades on our state issued report cards as well.  Crying

                   

                   I am a strong advocater of diversity here, or anywhere else for that matter. My position is to encourage a spirited engagement, critique and

                  exchange of ideas on all topics, lottery related or not.  Group Hug  If having a little fun here, or going off topic is angering some members here, then

                  I guess we just need to respect them for their viewpoints, and learn how to co-exist.   Love

                   

                  Thanks for weighing in golfer, and I thank you for your very kind words! Good luck this evening.  Lep   Banana

                    I am a twilight zone junkie!  There used to be a magazine on the episodes that I subscribed to...I think it was before I was in college.

                    You see a lot of actors/actresses that later had TV shows.

                        William Shatner got his early start in one of the Twilight episodes. Shatner kept seeing this gremlin on the plane he was on, that was trying to

                        rip the wing apart. Remember that one Artist.  What?

                         

                        It was called "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet".

                            I used to make jokes when I was flying (family, friends, coworkers) about something being on the wing of the plane...pre 9-11 only....don't want to get kicked off the plane

                              OK, I'm not cheating promise!!! No google going on.  No Nod

                              I remember the one where he and his wife were in a restaurant, and decided to play a penny into this fortune teller machine.

                              Don't remember title, but he became very obsessed with it's vague answers, that sounded like they were giving him some clues about his life.
