hell no i dont deserve to win, not a bit, but i deserve to win more than the schmuch who doesnt buy a ticket and blabs on about how much they'll give away if they do win.

 

i dont deserve it, but hey i dont deserve it just as much as anyone else in here.

2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

    i was looking at: Youtube day before yesterday and there is this guy who won Powerball or MegaMillions and wants to give it all away....ALL OF IT...is just like wasting all of it away...the guy could be very religious i dont know...won like: 126 millions...the video look fake though...

    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 alway want to win. I think of all the things that I could do, and all the people that

      I could help. When I see people that hit it big and take it for granted. Good fortune doesn't strike

      everyone, but when It does hit for me I will make the best of it. Lesson learn.

      Isn't this the main reason we are playing in the first place???  We all want to win and deserve to win; how you decide to spend it is up to you and GOD; for example yesterday, a homeless man was at McDonald's looking for or asking for money to eat--I saw him going to several strangers and I finally I asked him was he hungry and he said yes; I gave him $2.00 which I had extra to play from my lotto budget and told him to walk inside and buy himself lunch; perhaps from the "dollar menu".   I was happy to give it to him and felt good that I was there to help him. $2.00 wasn't a lot but he certainly did not turn it down--People are struggling and hurting day to day just to survive; if you help others it will come back to you twofold.

          I would rather see a poor/middle class citizen blow through a massive windfall buying silly items then have a crooked charity/organization steal it all...Imagine how you would feel giving most of your windfall away to say the people of Haiti only to find out it never really got to them...

            We all say,"if I won, I would invest it, I wouldn't waste it etc... " I would like to believe I would be constructive with any win. However, people do change when they get sudden riches, from a lottery win or inheritance. If and when I win, I hope I will still keep my feet on the ground.

            We all get a lot out of lotteries!

              You're saying what most people say and feel if the truth be told.

              But even if you say it; it still does not change the truth that it  is  their   money!!!

              forget what "they" say about youWhat you say about you?...

              Now, does it count??

                What I think doesn't matter unless I buy a ticket with the winning numbers, lotteries are not entitlement programs.

                      What I think are you think does'nt 'matter, but we can still say it. That call freedom of speech, and

                      that we're entitle to. I think that sum up this whole post......Surrender

                        Great Idea.... I never saw it that way.

                        I agree,

                        Like the saying goes--" I don't want to be like Mike,  I want to be like the guy that PAYS Mike."

                          nah i don't hate. i mean, even if i won a ridiculous amount, i wouldn't go all MTV cribs and start blowing my cash. would i love to? sure, but i would never due to the sheer irresponsibility of it. so when someone else does,in a sense i have this "good for you " feeling because i don't have it in me to do what they do. so i guess i don't consider what they're doing as "throwing it away". some experiences are priceless
