you know like 6 days ago i spent 600 on fixing my dentures that i've had for like 10 years and the dental place is the best in town, but it didnt fix my problem and i just wasted 600 dollars plus i spent 300 for a some new glasses...And knowing that i could have gotten some new dentures here in Panama for like 700 dollars...by the way those dentures by now cost like 4,000 dollars...Dear God...

If there are 2 things i hate to spend money on are glasses [i feel glasses are too expensive], and cell phones good thing i don't have cell phones for i hate them...The money i spent on a new pair of glasses i could had bought me [or ask my brother to by me for me] but i could buy me some scratchoffs...Or buy me some old sega genesis or nintendo 64 from ebay and entertain myself...

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¨

                I know, this looks like the stereotypical first question on a 'Do you have a problem?' quiz, but there's no ulterior motive here.  I'm just genuinely curious.  Some people casually play the lottery, some people are sharp and serious about the lottery, and some people are downright lottery analyzing machines.

                What's your own personal price point?

                Do some research, and you will find there have been other polls in the past asking the very same question.

                Go dig 'em up and compare the results..

                  I begin to start playing the POWERBALL regularly,since I don't have a job right now.  My first game for this year was after the change in the POWERBALL on January 4th,so I spent $31 this is for all of the drawings so far,since each draw I pay a different amount of tickets almost every time depending on my available fund,but I won $15.  So,I lost $16 so far.

                      I am part of an employee pool at work and I was spending $2 a week ($4 if the first set of tickets didn't win) with the other 38 or so employees.

                       

                      So minimum I was paying $8 a month, maximum $16

                       

                      Now after the $207 million Piqua employee fiasco, we have gone to a contract that requires $20 a month up front or you are excluded for the entire month.  I wrote the contract and had it validated by our courts prosecutor and then any contract that is signed by a willing pool player is notarized by our court administrator.

                       

                      So long story short, $20 a month starting in 4 days.

                        $5 a week

                        $20 a month

                        $260 a year

                        Spent so far: $2,600 (10 years playing)

                            we usually spend $4 on wed and $4 on sat. sometimes more- usually no less. We usually get 2 PB tickets and 2 cash 5 (like a pick 5) tickets. Depending on cash 5 payouts, sometimes we get more, or get some on different days.1 of each, for each drawing, is always 'our' number, and the other is a quick pick.

                             

                            For awhile, we were spending about $50 a week...we decided that was a bit much!
