   They say," showing up is the biggest part of winning." 

Everyone has a reason to play. Some reasons are just more colorful than others.   

If you want something you have never had, then you have to do something you have never done.

    I agree. The human mind wants to see patterns in things.

    "Apophenia is the human tendency to perceive meaningful patterns within random data."

    "Apophenia is the spontaneous perception of connections and meaningfulness of unrelated phenomena. The term was coined by neurologist and psychiatrist Klaus Conrad (1905-1961). The term has found a place outside of psychiatry and is used to describe the natural tendency of human beings to find meaning and significance in random, coincidental, or impersonal data."

    "It is now viewed as being a ubiquitous feature of human nature."

      When I was a kid, we used to smoke the "silk" just under cottonwood bark.

      It was better than smoking grape vines, but not by much.

      Never done that, couldn't have been all too tasty.

      Nolege is power.

              Thank you. I loved it when the other poster viewed it as a crazy concept off the internet. It is well documented.

                You're welcome, Artist77.

                This basic, human trait is recognized as a key to survival.

                It is how infants learn at such an astounding rate.

                The Rorschach Inkblot Test capitalizes on it.

                Anyone who has ever perceived a human face in an object or shapes in clouds has experienced it.

                And it worked successfully for this lucky winner.

                  There was a monk from Tennessee who won a $259.8 million Powerball jackpot in 2014.

                  It was stated that he had taken a vow of poverty.

                    "there's no way to explain divine. IntInvention."

                    Plenty of people think they can explain it, but here's no way to prove divine intervention. Well, the entity intervening could prove it, but so far there's no proof that it ever happened.
