Let's just say there was an Institute for the Lottery Insane, a sanitorium.

Which ward do you think would have the bigest population?

Scared

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.

    Funny poll, Coin Toss. LOL

    I think that, "My numbers just haven't hit yet" would have the most patients.

      I'm highly insulted by the notion that my contention that I will win two jackpots would be considered crazy!

      However, when the men in the white coats come for me I will demand to be in the pumpi ward.

      We could have matching strait jackets and designer drool cups.

      I'm looking forward to it.

      As long as the woodpeckers don't come for me. I hate that.

      So I voted for "I will win two jackpots" and in your heart... you know I will.

      Mmmmmm... I smell bacon!

        I voted for Pumpi Was Right, but of course in the real world there would be no such ward because if he were in fact right the black hole would've swallowed us by now.

        "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

          Well, looking at the selection, I can see the quick pick ward must be the one for the seriously affected and the one nobody wants to talk about. Looking around the room I picked the 'I have a system- there is a system' ward. Just so long as I get a good supply of sticky notes, push-pins and lots of string I will be very content. Take away my pad of paper, pencil and my scientific calculator and I go reluctantly screaming to the quick-pick lock-down. Naughty

          Are Pumpi and Psycomo interns for a ward? I want to make sure I get my meds. I know they can count.Cheers

                I voted Pumpi was right. Hey don't knock Pumpi. In a world of anything goes, a lottery just for midgets or hermaphrodites is very plausible. Just sayin.....

                  I believe Pumpi will achieve his dream of world domination with $4 he wins from a scratch-off and the embedded secret code only he can see.

                      From some of the heatedArgue discussions I've seen, I have to go with: They're MY numbers, only mine. Evil Looking

                        For those of you who truly, fervently believe in one of the above, I offer this story.

                        A guy is driving home when he gets a flat tire. As it happens, he pulls to the side of the road in front of the Institite for the Lottery Insane, where the inmates patients are outside for their daily walks.  As he starts to change the tire one of the patients comes to the fence and watches him. The guy gets the spare tire on, and as he reaches for the hubcap with the lug nuts in it he tips it, dropping all of the lugnuts into a storm sewer. Aloud he wonders, "Crap, now what am I going to do?" The inmate at the fence says, "Why don't you take one lug nut off of each of the other wheels, and use them to put the spare tire on?"

                        The driver looks at him, and says, "That's a really good idea. If you can think of that, why are you confined to this institution?" The patient looks at him and says, "I'm here for being crazy, not stupid."

                            How about, "Those were my numbers that came up but I forgot to go play them?"

                            That happened to me once. Based on certain patterns, I concluded that "104" would with the Virginia Pick-3 evening drawing on Tuesday, March 29, 2005. I even walked past the grocery store, but on that particular day I had forgotten about my prediction. It didn't hit me until I checked the winning number the next afternoon. Guess what came up that night? 104! I would have won $500 if I remembered to buy the ticket!

                            Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                            In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                              Looks like we'll have to add a few more wards;
