I believe life is about finding someone you cant live without

And showing them how much you care every day of every month of every year

    We should ship lottery machines with powerball, mega millions, and Lotto South to SE Asia.  Who knows?  maybe a tsunami victim will win =)

        I didn't vote because I'm doing it with the pick 3 which has a better chance of winning something.

        Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

          Yeah, but this wouldnt really be about winning.....its more of a donation, with a slight chance

            That's my point....I would rather be in a position to donate $250 than a losing ticket.  I won't win a jackpot game this month but I'm sure as hell going to try and just might win a pick 3.

                  How about it Mr. JW?


                  Would you like to contribute to the Tsunami Fund?


                  They sure could use your help...

                      Justin:

                      I was referring to the "Mr. Jack Whittaker" in West Virginia. The one that won the $319M.

                      May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May  the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.

                        Somehow I feel it is different to play a good cause lottery when the cause is long term whether the Irish Sweepstakes or other charity based game.

                        When the lottery would be based on a specific moment of people's suffering it feels like taking advantage of their loss.

                        Face it, if the world were run right we'd be ready for this kind of thing.

                          They'd be able to afford it! $1 = only 47 indian rupees and 3 or 6 malaysian dollars (forgot what their currency is called)

                          plus it'll be fun ...especially if they win large prizes.

                            Get REAL...the last thing they need is lottery machines or lotto games.  They could use 5 dollars from every one here. At a couple of thousand people here at the post..that would translate to thousands of dollars. Are YOU "game"?  How about it todd?
