      I recall once seeing a CBS 60 minutes program or related program, several years ago, on rats in New York City,  and these fellas are not your typical tiny bitty mice, but are real large monsters that can in-fact pose a challenge to the most daring un-iniated cats.

      So you may be correct that "rats eat the cats in NY.........."

      My grandmother owned a building in NYC and I remember when I was small she tore it down to build another building and when it came down there were these massive rats crawling all over the rubble. NYC rats are in a whole nother ballgame compared to anywhere else. One of the major deterrents to me ever wanting to live there. That was back in the days when the trains were covered in gafitti. The fun days.

        I worked in DC for years before actually seeing rats as big as cats. I thought it was a "story." I used to work in a building with nearby construction and rats of all sizes invaded our building. One day when I was walking down the hall, I saw two huge ones that were the size of 8-10 lb cats that just stared me down. The big ones are very aggressive and can collapse their body to fit under a one inch door space. I swear I can smell them and knew when one was around.

        His time is up.

            Bigboy they got two days to sell more tickets so some one will buy the winner bye wednesday night.  That is what I am thinking I could be wrong though.  Just my two cents!  Good luck!-weshar75

                You know what's going to get the media into a feeding frenzy?

                 

                When the first of two increases comes tomorrow.

                 

                They will be to every "lucky" store and popular hot spot that sells lottery tickets.

                  The MUSL wants a media feeding frenzy.

                  This always translates into increased sales.

                  Timing is everything and it begins tomorrow!

                    Yeah I just read news reports stating that Sunday's sales were very strong and that they'd decide by midnight tonight whether to increase it tomorrow. My guess would be another 75 million to up it to half a Billion dollars. That'll generate more interest since it's such a "catchy" sounding number.

                          Maybe it's hilarious that you would think a state is unlucky or that a state wins a jackpot.

                          I do know states cannot play the lottery. People living in the states do. Yes, Most view their state, town and themselves as being unlucky. I'm sure most have heard the phrases, "No one ever wins MM/PB in this state." "I never win anything." Yes, I viewed the state of Louisiana as being unlucky. I also view myself as being unlucky. Yes, it's hilarious that LP members get offended by someone saying something negative about a game.

                              Have you gotten to that scary level of spending yet? $10 - lol

                              HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING=SAVE YOUR MONEY.

                              LOTTERY PROGRAMMING 101?

                              I WILL PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY TO AVOID THE LOTTERY INSANITY. IT IS OKAY TO DREAM.

                              I AM A THRIFTY LOTTERY PLAYER BECAUSE I SAVE LINES TO PLAY SOMEDAY.

                              OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

                              1) Playing the lottery more often for less lines= Playing a single line.

                              2) Playing the lottery less often for more lines= Playing multiple lines.

                              3) Playing the lottery less often for less lines= Playing a single line monthly or yearly.

                              4) Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.

                              I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

                              A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.
