Well I am one of those people that although i'm not rich, had sympathy for Martha Stewart and Paris Hilton.

Not everyone enjoys watching rich people fall.

I also enjoy hearing about those few cases of INTELLIGENT people who win the lotto, like the young California woman who won 30 million and bought her family a farm.

I have sympathy for Paris Hilton simply because she is being made an example of. She is not getting special treatment. In fact if you are I had the same charge against us our lisence would just be suspended for a longer time. We would not go to jail for 45 days.

I lawyer on CNN explained all of these. However they are playing into the public wanting her to suffer for whatever reason. It's total BS.

 

FREE PARIS HILTON!!!

    Pathetic reaction from someone without good arguments.

    Got no arguments, so he resorts to attacking me for being Norwegian and using capitalized "conscience" and "scruples". Capitalizing was used instead of bolding/italized text.

    Humans learned what was right and what was wrong long before they was brainwashed to worship fantasy gods. 

    And also some of the most evil things have been done in the "Name of God"

    When Humans take responsibility for their own actions and stop blaming God or The Devil then we might actually get somewhere as a species.

      No jerky, you attacked me first.  What am I mind reader?  I chose not to argue with you because I really don't care to argue with someone who calls me stupid and ignorant and now pathetic.    I am simply going to pray for you and hope God has mercy on your soul when you are judged.  Keep telling yourself that you know everything and that we learned right from wrong on our own.  You also insult everybody who honors God, by calling them brainwashed and peoples' Gods  fantasies.  GHY jarasan

      folks like you are insulted when people don't agree with your belief system and don't want your belief system shoved onto every website in the world. It's a lottery website. *rolls eyes* but you folks keep bringing up your christianity here. You don't want that belief slammed or questioned then stop bringing it up in inappropriate places.  Like here.

        Manzplan you are truly brilliant thanks for straightening everything out. 

        Where did you read that I was Christian?  Where did you learn to read minds across nations?

        Easy, not believing there are any consequences for your actions. 

        Not believing in God. 

        Now, that's a stupid assertion to make. So you believe non religious people don't  believe there's any consequences for their action because they don't believe in a god? That's very typical ignorant assumption from self righteous christians.

        It doesn't have anything with beliefs to do, but peoples Conscience, Scruples and if they're potential  psychopaths or sociopaths."

        In the United States, we believe in free speech, but we also respect each other.  But when someone whom I don't know from Adam comes on here and attacks me or anybody for a simple statement trying to understand why someone would kill and cut up their own husband, has issues of their own.

        It seems you have your own God complex. You have an answer for everything, in the few posts you've written, you speak as if you are some kind of authority on everything.  You also insult people by some of your statements here is one:

        "I have seen quite a few posts by some on this forum that difinately are not ready mentally for a huge lottery win. Some that would difinately be in the same boat as Jack or David very quickly."

        So if one of us hits we'll call you for advice, because you are so smart, definitely. 

        If the word or concept of God upsets you,  I apologize.  And as far as this being a lottery site, you are correct, but we are also a community that enjoys sharing experiences as regular people do in life.  All lottery and nothing else would make this a very boring place.  I feel kindred to all of the members here, and have learned much, not only with respect to the lottery but with many other aspects of life.

          After watching a documentary entitled, "The Curse Of The Lottery", I noticed that oftentimes the DUMBEST people are the big winners. I'm sure that you've all heard about the lottery winners who destroyed their own lives and the lives of others, after winning the jackpot in the lottery. After seeing all those ignorant winners, I realized why they call it "dumb luck" and why it had never happened for me. Perhaps i've never won because I am of average intelligence.

          Could "dumbing yourself down" increase your chances of winning the lottery? Stooges

          When something happens by "dumb luck", it is considered to have happened unintentionally and without planning, and has nothing to do with the intelligence of the person receiving the "dumb luck".

          Additional insight into Luck!

            The article on Wikipedia is very nice. Indeed it could be considered a heavy reading for persons without practice. I wonder if everyone could understand all the words. In reality, I understood some parts , there was others that even resemble a IQ or general knowledge (culture fair) test !

                The I AM is a importantly part of some rituals and visualizations.

                It is rumored to be used by Moses and others. 

                Talking about the spiritual aura , some persons would have a aura more balanced to Love or more balanced to Grace. Now, I think that I am using the right therms over here.

                 Also it is very important to buy (or at least play on-line) the ticket with the correct number set!
