Didn't spend hundreds of dollars for this drawing. How would I feel? The same. In fact, it would show you that anybody can win. Be it with 1 ticket or 500 tickets purchased. The same if they are rich or poor. Goes to show you anyone can win. Not that you will. LOL

I Agree! An actual ticket purchase is required to win the lottery.LOL

        So far that's the only conclusion I have been able to postulate that all winner's have in common. LOL

          The three big winners were the NJ individual, netting $140M; The Federal Government, $50M; and the state of NJ, $10M. If my calculations are correct, assuming the lump sum cash option was $200M, the state gets 5% and the Feds get 25%. Correct me if I'm wrong.

          State tax is 10.8% the highest in the country.

                  I Agree! remember shy you must play the lottery for fun, when it stops being fun then maybe you should stop playing for awhile. I have read where several winners have stopped playing becaue they weren't winning then started playing again and won. I will try to find some links for you.

                  Please stay positive an don't be discouraged I know it's hard your time will.

                  Not necessarily true. I think many people say this to justify their playing the lottery against such incredible odds. I have never, repeat, NEVER bought a lottery ticket because I think it's FUN...Among reasons are the embarrassment felt by playing, the stink eye received when asking the person behind the counter for a ticket to the eventual and basically certainty of losing. Going to a casino and playing poker or going to a fair and playing the stupid carnival games CAN be fun. Playing the lottery to me and I'm sure for most others is NOT fun and never will be. The only reason I play is for the miniscule chance of winning millions of dollars. Without playing, I would either have to sell my soul or have had wealthy parents to inherit it from to receive. LOL

                  Being positive or discouraged has nothing to do with anything. That's a part of life.

                    Kumo, I get the context of what you are trying to describe but I respectfully disagree.

                    The truth is... Not just "anyone" has the ability to move up the ladder of success. A lot depends on where you were born, to whom you were born and the resources provided to you. Success in life be it wealth, job, school, marriage depends A LOT on who you know (connections) being at the right place at the right time (Luck) and your intelligence, which is mostly genetic. If you think how hard you work is a main ingredient ask the local roofer or brick layer if he's a millionaire or if he's thinking of running for congress.

                    If may not be a Zig Ziglar or tony robbins infomercial to admit this, but it's a little closer to the actual truth.

                    Someone was born under a bad sign.
