when I was 18 years old (2000), I bought Gum, Pop and a 1$ scratch ticket, it was my first time playing the Lottery,, I won $200, I bought a computer monitor.  Before getting the cash, my mom found the ticket when doing the laundry, and she got really mad at me, telling me that the Lottery is a scam.  Since then I never played until the Huge Power Ball Jackpot 2 weeks ago(last week?) and This weeks Mega Millions jackpot.

        Won a 50 pound sack of feed once and a litter of rabbits another time down at the Saturday Matinee at the movie theater when I was a kid.  Fed the sack of feed to the calves, fattened up the bunnies and eventually ate them.

        Mostly that's the sort of thing that's happened to all my winnings since.

        It's about number behavior.

                I bought a BC powder and a diet Coke.

                With the lottery I get all the exercise I need.

                  With one of the winnings, I indulged in lazziness. Bought a remote car starter. For the last three years, when the snow is up to my ... well .. when above my knees, I can click the button three times and start the truck. Nothing like a warm seat in the winter.

                  Cheers

                        The most I've ever won is $7. Sad but true. And I spend about $12/week, so that's $48/month and $576/year.  So I'd have to win pretty damn big to make a dent in what I spend.  But as far as I'm concerned, the daydreaming is well worth the money I spend.
