I'll have most or all transferred to Euros anyway because I want to move to europe one day.

And if you win the lottery over there...it's all lump sum!

      So is Canada. Why not move up there, especially with this global warming?

        Hello everyone,

            Yes, I do think I will win the lottery someday.  I like working with the numbers and using the Gail Howard Advantage Plus system.  There is alot of helpful information and very helpful members who are glad to help, just waiting to be asked.  I have been playing since 1988 and have seen no real return, I just enjoy looking at the numbers.  When it starts to feel like work, or is not fun, I just take some time off and come back to it.  Sometimes all it takes is someone to talk to who shows you a different way of looking and combining numbers.  It would be nice to have a separate place in real time to instant message about the lottery.  I think Todd does an amazing job with this site.  I was very happy to discover it as I have been a "closet" lottery player for quite a few years.  There are not many people who'll admit to having the same optimism about numbers as I do.  I'm glad to see others who share my interest.  I play Fantasy 5 (FL).  By the way to the members who have been on the site much longer than I, has any winner ever come back and told of their win?  That would be exciting to read about and fuel the fire again for all of us.  Don't give up!  Good luck everyone!

              I have lost faith in winning the lottery. The most I ever win was $23 in 2001. Otherwise, I keep losing money.

                I hold on to some optimism. 

                People who don't want lump sum actually are pessimists. Why they still play I don't know.

                Add it to the list of many things you don't know.  Choosing annuity is not being pessimistic.  You are, in fact, the epitome of pessimism.  When you spend your life looking through tunnel vision, you get a narrow viewpoint.  There are a multitude of reasons to choose either, only the one who can choose has to worry about the outcome.  Your position on the majority is ludicrous.  It makes no sense whatsoever.  At one time, the majority thought the world was flat.  At one time, the majority thought slavery was acceptable.  At one time, most Americans thought all Russians were out to kill their children. 

                Your narrow viewpoint hasn't influenced a single person.  A free thinker knows there are options, and will choose what is best for them - never, ever, considering what you think is best for you!  People are going to choose what makes them happy, not what you think will make them happy. If you can name a jackpot winner from a major lottery, who has been influenced by you, lets hear their name.

                Cheers

                  You're too young to give up - on anything.  Experience a lot more of life before you give up.  The lottery doesn't make guarentees, it provides challenges.  It you like it, turn it into fun.  Then maybe lady luck will look kindly on you.

                    Here is how I look at it.  Some people spend money almost weekly on going to movies, buying DVDs, golfing, or tickets to concerts or athletic events.  I spend money on none of those.  Some people spend 20 hours or more weekly watching TV.  I might spend one hour a month.  So if I want to spend five or ten bucks a week on lottery tickets and an hour now and then thinking what I'd do with all that money should I win, that's my form of entertainment. 

                    Do I really think I'll win?  I know the odds, but there is always that hope.

                        Of course!  EVERYONE should believe that they could win! Otherwise purchasing a ticket would be a mute point.  Yes, the odds of you winning are tremendous but if you didn't think that you did not have a chance of winning you would not purchase a ticket (I hope.)  If you didn't think that you could win you wouldn't check your numbers.  The one thing that ALL winners have in common is:

                         EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THEM

                         BOUGHT A TICKET!!!

                        Let's keep playing!!!Party
