ONE TICKET!

ONE WINNER!

That has a vaguely familiar ring to it......

oh, wait

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners.

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.

    Andrew Carnegie sold his company BEFORE Income Tax was law.

    Carnegie died on August 11, 1919, in Lenox, Massachusetts at his Shadow Brook estate, of bronchial pneumonia. He had already given away $350,695,653 (approximately $76.9 billion, adjusted to 2015 share of GDP figures) of his wealth.

    His Foundation STILL helps people to this day!

    That's how Capitalism WORKS!

    Carnegie was one of the men profiled on The Men Who Built America......

    No jackpot winners were.

      QUESTION:  Whose idea was it to start national and state lotteries in the 1980's anyway?  Anybody know?

                    These high numbers drawn for both jackpots is obnoxious... spread it out so I can feel equally irritated

                      Guarantee nobody "picked" those Powerball numbers tonight, they're pretty ugly. Maybe a quick pick.

                      I picked 3 of the 6

                      just not in the right spots...

                      i pick my own...

                          Yep, that was always the problem I had when I calculated my own sets of numbers. I'd get most of the numbers, I just couldn't get them to line up straight.

                            Well,time to call it a night.... Us saints have to get up early to help the rest of you sinners tomorrow to repent from your heathen thoughts and certain finger waives from not winning either jackpot this weekend.
