Part of me wants to win and the other part of me wants to win also. Big Grin Santa

I Agree!

My nose, hands and feet all want to win.  I want to win even when I'm sleeping!

By the way, you know how you said I would win Fantasy5 one day?  Well, it teased me again last night!  I bet an extra dollar and picked

2-7-10-19-28

2-7-10-21-23

Winning numbers were 2-7-10-22-29

I won $13.50 (3/4) on 2 tickets or $27.00.  I really have a headache this morning.  Maybe it was the Merlot, but it's as if some great force does not want me to pick the right numbers.  Nobody won so it was a rolldown.

So is that the part of me that doesn't really want to win?  If so, I need to call an exorcist!

    If you are the generous type of person who always have some extra change when a friend or co-worker is little short of lunch money or can't find a quarter for a pop during a break, or that family that member with good credit that everyone expect to co-sign their loans then you probably should have mixed feelings about winning $20M+ of unearned money. 

    Those friends, co-workers and family members are going feel entitled to share your extra money and your spare change will no longer cover their needs. 

    As those co-workers said of the last winners in MagaMillions in Ohio, it was always understood if any of us won, we all would share regardless.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      One must have the courage to pick ones self up and start over no matter how many times they have been knocked down. Unless you are mentally or physically handicapped beyond the point of repair. Sounds like you could use some counseling to get on track again. Nothing wrong with talking this out with a professional.

      As for winning the lottery and having to deal with new found wealth cross that bridge when you come to it no need in worrying over something before it even happens. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

      I Agree!

         I don't think I can handle a sudden wealth. If I get 20 millions after tax and everything I would be really, really confused and scared. Sure, I posted threads and posts about investing after winning a big one, but with this kind of economy things are pretty dim. And I've been doing some soul search and realized that I won't be able to handle a jackpot winning that well.

         The biggest thing is fear. Having millions of dollars in bank account (or as real estates) will make me really, really anxious and nervous. And I really don't think I would feel secure at all because I've been losing my confidence. I have a fear of getting succumbed into drug abuse because I've experienced so many failures for last 10 years and I think I would be really vulnerable to any form of illicit pleasures. I don't want to end up with some gold-digging bimbo either. But desperation can easily switch off BS detector. I really have to be really, really vigilant. And I don't think I can even trust my lawyer and my account.

         Still, part of me wants to win a jackpot because...of my lack of confidence. (kinda ironic because I don't want to win because of that) financial security might (with a big assumption) make me feel somewhat secure. I want to make my family members and close relatives feel happy and secure. I am supposed to be the pillar of my clan, being the eldest son of the whole clan. Now I am about to get hired by a major animation studio (which specializes in TV animations) and I don't feel safe at all because I've experienced so many failures and disappointments for last 10 years.

         Surely owning a couple of millions in CDs and a commercial property will be nice. But for me, good things alway come in hand in hand with really, really bad events. So even if I win a jackpot, I won't feel safe and secure because of my life history.

         I just hope I don't become some filthy rich whoremongering cocaine and vicodin junkie...

        i feel the same way, you see I DO NOT WANT TO WIN MEGAMILLION/Powerball.... What i want to win is Win For Life...I've said this before and i'll say it again...The only reason i MIGHT win MegaMillions is to take all the money and bribe governments officials around the world into putting a Pick6/25 like West Virginia Cash25 for 25 cents to 50 cents...And i know how you feel and you are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT...Because believe me once you win people start doing "movie around you" 99.9% of the people in the world don't have any idea what it is but think about it as people enticing you...It will not surprise me if they start listening to your conversations and tracking you as if you became a VIP and then trying to target you whenever they can...Such practices i feel is the same devil and i wish i could teach people but people are too slow to pick it up...Once you win if you are a female you will start noticing that guys look hotter around you and they beging to hang around you....You know who could pick this up? a Celebrity...A celebrity could pick it up if it acts a certain way...

        And the funny thing is that they do all this and there is a ton OF WORK AHEAD, TON OF WORK...People beging to "talk/Gossip" around you and everything...The traffic, nice cars start lining up in front of you...And all they are trying to do is seduce you....And the only thing you can do to combat this "Implied Seduction" is to be willing to give everthing you have give it up, of course you are going to stay with 1 or 2 millions...

        Again that kind of lifestyle i don't want to live....I think of that kind of lifestyle as getting high [not physically but mentally] when when you look around you there is ton of work ahead....And the sad part of this rich folks/community that try to seduce you is that if you look in the backyard people eating thrash or that the rich community does not try to take care of that that changes the value of things or currency or oil that when 200 years from now your descendants are still rich or still enjoy of that 60 million dollars that you won....And sadly [just to prove you that they don't think] there is people that say they are conservative who want to keep things the same but NONE looks at that that changes the price of everything and make things go up in value, because believe it or not, in the 1920 if someone won 50,000 he thought he was rich yet fastforward to today and that 25,000 is almost nothing...This is why i can't stand a lot of people and the Natzies and KKK organization nor can i stand vogue magazines, and others....

        But i don't blame you for this and i encourage you to have the same frame of mind...I mean 3 million is not bad, 80 million there is something wrong...And believe me the Drugs will entice you...This is another reason also why i like to stress that there is no reason you can pick a person because of his features and let him speak for the entire people with the same features and this is another reason why i say that there are difference ethnicities and races and why some people of other races are more of another races than others...That's why i don't like designating people to one race/feature...And this is why i believe that the rich comunity despite that i wish them the best they are my enemies....And believe me, I WANT TO ADAPT MY KIDS i don't want to have kids of my own....Is hard but that's what i want to do...

        Is kind of like jews, jews say they are jews but if one jew person was to win 100 million dollars he will not try to help the jewish community he will try and be something else so how in the world can he be more jewish than someone else if you do it to a latin person he will help another latin person but that's only because Latin is a Large group around the world but let it be a small as a clan or something else...Exactly what i am saying....

        Anyways going back to you, i don't blame you for believing in what you believe, they have ways to entice you.....And even if i could be a multi millionaire be a richer guy having 100 million dollars for myself i could not because i know myself and i will end up doing some kind of massacre or columbine high school type of thing because a estas alturas people still believe they are superior to you and the sun does revolves around the earth and not the other way around....I know that if i get 200 million i will end up becoming Bin Laden, i know myself...I know better but what i am saying is you sometimes can't take it...

        The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

            amblamba,

            Counselors who work with problem gamblers tell them that they have a psychological need to lose, to punish themselves.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              I agree with DC81 100%   I truly don't feel like I'd change too much.  The bad thing is I don't trust people even now, so that won't change.   I don't party, drink do drugs or any of that stuff that can tempt people with  lotto wins.

              I  want to win for  the same reasons you say   and I never wished I don't win.  I (we) have just as much right to win as anyone else. My  life has gone crappy all my life and ive had to struggle for everything. (just like most Americans i guess)   And i can't wait until 2008 is over- its been pretty bad, But I  feel its time for me to get something good for a change. And like DC81 said- I'd rather take my chances being miserable WITH money-  I have become way too familiar with misery without it.

              If you are afraid of turning into the slugs that become victims of a sudden winfall, then chances are you won't.  You seem to be someone who thinks about consequences and that is the first step to making the correct decisions.  There are so many winners that lead normal existances,  not every lotto winner is a Jack Whitattaker,  David Edwards, or Bud Post.  Keep playing if you want.  Sure the odds are against us.  But guess what, the odds are against all the winners.  It has happened, you deserve happiness and if that happines comes from a lotto winfall then more power to ya-- and try to enjoy it when it comes.

              Keep your head up.

                I'll like to be the richest man in the world by cracking Pick3 And not jumping like in MegaMillions you see there is a difference between accumulating wealth over a period of time and getting rich overnight and this has made me realize that the lottery depends on the amount that it gives can be like nicotine or cigarrette, you are not ready for it....This is different from the stock market which the stock market you grow money wise over the years [despite that it has its flaws] but the lottery gives you money overnight which can be dangerous or a killer....That's why is better to give people 1 million dollars a year for life in a scratchoff [by placing 20 or 25 millions in the bank or 30 millions in the bank and let the interest give you 1 million a year for life] than to give 60 million dollars sum of money overnight...Whao did i learn something today....
