Rule number one, never tell anyone you won.Green laugh

That's why I have a premium Membership to learn all the cool stuff.

Many years ago (maybe 10), Emily gave me a one month premium membership as a gift and I renewed it because how easy it is to use the wheels. Made a few four number matches playing Ohio Rolling Cash 5 that more than enough paid to continue renewing my premium membership. When I moved to KY tinkered with the Inspector 4, saw something, and caught a box hit and won enough to pay for a premium membership for years.

IMO, there are too many numbers in both the MM and PB matrix for any serious play so my chances of winning will be in the few time I buy some QPs when the jackpot is near the "must win" level.

I don't have any problems with standard members, but believe those with premium membership serious lottery players.

    King of Derp keeps regurgitating this phrase: "conservative republican leeches" and I'm not sure why.  Since I proved WAY back in this thread that more Democrats are on welfare than Republicans, I guess Herp Derp thinks people have forgotten and he can keep on lying. 

    In 11 different U.S. states today, the number of people on welfare exceeds the number of people with jobs.  This list of states includes some of the biggest states in the country: California, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, New Mexico and Hawaii.

    Seven of the 11 states went for President Barack Obama in the 2012 election; Ohio, Hawaii, Illinois, New York, Maine, California and New Mexico.  Mitt Romney was victorious in Kentucky, South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi.

    So, it seems that Republicans not only support the Democrat voters in so-called "Red" states, they do it in the biggest "Blue" ones too.

    I went through each and every point you made and proved each and every one WRONG (except Davy Crockett)

        Yeah, sure Kingofearth. We've go the religious pokice carrying whips and ready to flog anyone who won't way the conversion prayer, cutting off the hands of children, followers committing 'honor killings;, etc....

        Call Guinness's Book of World Records and get yourself i there for your level of having been brainwashed.

        We did have religious police in the early colonial era. Then the people grew out of it. As you can see on this forum, the right wing is de-evolving back into that era.

                Didn't you suspect the day this new story was posted that it would turn into what it is now?

                Three factors here...bets, opponents and opinions. Perfect evolution. Todd probably expected

                it too.

                  No, I didn't suspect it.

                  It is definitely an interesting thread as long as you can wade through the boorish behavior of a few.

                  The volley of insults hurled if you dont share similar views... Crazy...

                    No doubt- after Todd cleaned house of politics than invaded a thread a little while ago, this should please those who are into politics big time.

                      That's like comparing the Crusades to modern day radical islam atrocities.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                        destinycreation, dr65, Romancandle,

                        Actually the posts are within the thread title.

                        Who is booking action on the US election, the BC Lottery, no?

                        That's a stretch but not too much of one. 

                        There was a time in Vegas you could bet on almost anything, the El Cortez offered a $1M payoff for a $1 bet on a piece of Skylab landing on the roof of the Hotel. People made the bets just to keep the ticket as a souvenir. 

                        But then the series Dallas had the Who Shot JR episode coming up and the casino bosses got real concerned about collusion among the writers and Hollywood people and restricted everything to sporting events, for a while anyway.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Points taken Stack.

                          Except when Obama decided he didn't like parts of the Constitution and signs Executive Orders.

                          It's not wholesale changes that people need to worry about. Nobody is going to come in and just flush whole sections of the Constitution. It's little by little, over time. Allowing illegal immigrants, a ban on this kind of gun here, or there. Then one day we look up and wonder what happened.

                          Read somewhere that Obama signed 923 executive orders in his first three years, but found out it was the usual Internet gross exaggeration. The number was 147 and less than Gerald Ford in his short time as President. Ford's first executive order (pardoning Nixon) pretty much summed up his presidency. Eisenhower was the last President with over 400.

                          "Allowing illegal immigrants,"

                          The problem now is many people have entered the country illegally, lived here for years, and had children born here creating another problem because their are U.S. citizens. I live in horse country and can only guess at the number of illegals I see every day. The solution is in the hands of the Republican controlled Congress.

                          "a ban on this kind of gun here, or there. Then one day we look up and wonder what happened."

                          There was ban on guns in the city limits of Tombstone, Arizona in 1880 so it's not like that idea took hold and the majority of the country demanded a repeal of the Second Amendment. If the Bill of Rights only applies to U.S. citizens, than only U.S. citizens can purchase legal firearms. But if it applies to everybody in the U.S., the only restriction should be the type. None of us wants a 105 howitzer pointed at our homes.

                            Drenicj1,

                            Good points on both posts.

                            There is this gem from Stack;

                            "Ronda Rousey could beat either of them."

                            Them meaning Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris. If I remembe right he also said she'd never lose.

                            "If I remembe right"

                            That's your problem, you rely on your faulty memory that can't remember Bruce Lee died 14 years before Rhonda was born. I'm not knocking Chuck Norris, but only a fool would think at age 76 he could beat any well trained 29 year-old female athlete.

                            "he also said she'd never lose."

                            Sad that some people suffer from dementia and then want to argue whatever goofy thing they "think" someone said. My only response in the "Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee?" thread was Ronda Rousey could beat either of them. But to answer your second question, the game has changed so much since the days of Norris and Lee, the best pound for pound is debatable.

                            Asking who was tougher between Norris or Lee is like redundantly talking about spending imaginary jackpot winnings. Is your all time favorite Little Rascals episode is "Who is stronger, Tarzan or Flash Gordon?"
