    I see you've got the liquor on your mind.  Yes Nod

    You could just be a good candidate for this opportunity Ronnie316.

    If you live near a large city, have some old dirty smelly clothes, and a good pitch; You might consider giving up your current trade as a plumber.

    What kind of a pitch line would you use? Ex-veteran, family deserted you, terminal disease?  Roll Eyes

    LOL. I just got back from New Orleans, and down on Decatur St (French Quarter) this guy starts walking next to me chatting it up. Asks if I know where I got my shoes. I looked at him and said I have no idea where I got my shoes. He said "you got em on your feet on Decatur St, can you spare a little money?" I said, ok, that was worth a buck, and gave him a dollar.

    I just had to laugh.

              The man was homeless and desperate and rolled the dice and got lucky, sometimes you have to do that to survive. J.K. Rowling was homeless and living in a car and took a chance and wrote Harry Potter and is now a billionaire.

                          well luck is a fickle mistress, we take a date with her when and where she choses. and should always be happy for those that get the chance. how we react when the drunkeness of  being intoxited by her gifts is our own making. i hope this guy has seen how tough it is being down and out. and  struggles hard not to be there ever again.

                           

                          keep  sober my man and a clear head, you will need it like never before.

                            Exactly how do you figure that he "deserves" the win?  We deserve what we create in life.  Good for him for hitting it lucky, but he hardly "deserves" it.

                              Fortune may have favored this particular "bold" act, but it hardly favors the millions of other desperate people who daily make equally "bold" plays on the lottery.
