Nice dream, dude.

Allowing teens to gamble will not make the world better, IMHO.

    Nice dream, dude.

    I've always felt that life was not long enough..YOu really start appreciating life after i say you 10 years old and you only live to be 80 years old..That gives you 70 years to enjoy....

    Well the same way i always felt about a job..." I always felt that the "job" was like a "prison" that gets a hold of you until you are 62 years old, age to retire and if you didn't save for retirement because you couldn't it can get really difficult...The idea that you work 8 hours everyday and that the majority of the day is gone because you have to work, is just not right...That's not counting the time you have to spend taking care of the kids or fixing dinner....There is just not enough hours in the day to really enjoy a full day...The only ones that can enjoy a day fully are the well-off and famous; they are the only ones free from that prison you call a job...I feel we should all have to work no more than 5 hours a day instead of 8...I remember when i was working, i used to feel depress because i did the same thing everyday and it looked like there was no way out, and i wasn't getting paid enough i felt....Well that feeling i don't wish it on no one, no one...You think i feel happy everytime i see someone smoking and know that smoking is legal...

    We live in a world where there are "prisons" for your mind just like in the movie "the Matrix"...The only escape from that prison is to be economically well off and well developed with your family...I'll like to make that 40% to 50% of the world's population be well-off that they don't have to work ever in their life or that they have taken care of their most basic necesities like a house & education for their kids....I've come to see that the lottery can make you rich...And it is the only "system" that i can think of that can make someone rich over night or quickly...The lottery can free you from that bondage...And i see the day in the future when the lottery becomes very easy and like a gigantic stock market, bigger than the stock market, where there have multiple winners and losers and where perhaps you get money for matching 1 or 2 numbers from a permutation game...600 years from now i see the world been populated by tall buildings and people been populated by easy lotteries...The rich will gather by themselves and play easy lotteries among themselves...

    Someone recently said on Cnn forum about the recent dive the U.S stock market along with the world stock markets took last week......"I think when the nation's economies are affected by the whims of a small group of investors, I think there is something seriously wrong with the economic model..."

    Because when you have easy lotteries, i mean really easy lotteries around, it becomes more like "sharing" than it become gambling... So do i want to teach kids the example of potentially becoming rich for the value of one measly dollar, then i feel is worth letting teenagers play the lotto, this way a group of them will not have to face bondage....

      pumpi the lottery will probably never allow minors to play the lottery. there are many productive ways teenagers can be taught to earn millions without playing the lottery.

      There are millions of things that haven't been invented yet. And there are hundreds if not thousands of teenagers whom are involved in programs. That teach being successful is much more rewarding than having untold millions. If you become successful at what you do then the money will follow.

      you call working 8 hours dreadful. i and many others worked 10/12/16 hrs days to make ends meet.

        Yes.  Some people are forced by necessity to hold 2 jobs.  8 hours a day is easy.

        love to nibble those micey feet.

          The stock market behaves like a stochastic process (and a fractal), been influenced by subtle and something out of your reach fluctuations...While the easy lottery is not affected by nothing, is independent, you just have to be a connosseur and know how to set the odds just right (and/or the bonus ball)....IF you laugh at what i am saying just watch "Conflict Diamonds" special on CNN and see how people earn they food in Africa...

              I did 'really well' in the span of one year, playing one particular sector in the stock market, but it was still speculation, I didn't put ALL of my money in that one sector, if I had, I would have been retired after that one year.  But nothing is 'for sure', so I never put all of my dollars in one basket. George Soros I am not.

              Most can do what I did, it just takes a few brains and concentration on what you are looking at/for, and like most everything else, a bit of luck.

                Ted Turner said today the the wave of the future is in solar energy. No matter what your age to invest in the solar technologies now.

                children of all ages thru adults could become very wealthy doing so.

                The main reason is as fossil fuels are phased out solar energy will eventually inhance many existing energy sources.

                Do a google search on Ted Turner and solar energy

                  In GA during the early '80's 18 could purchase alcohol. We were one of the last states to change to 21, and even then we used a graduated system. Maybe things were simplier then.

                      Do a google search on Ted Turner and solar energy

                      The key is finding WHICH 2 or 3 solar companies to invest in.

                      When I did well in 1998, I had a chart of 32 companies to choose from, I narrowed it down to 8, I invested in those 8 - one of them a higher percentage than the others - and a year later, 7 of my 8 were in the top 8 of those 32 for my ROI, the one I 'missed' on was 12th.

                      That was then, situations are much different now, I don't know if I can replicate that much of a gain again.
