What do you say? Are you superstitious or not?

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

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.

      Tiggs, I worker for the post office for awhile, too.

      The clowns were the 204B's.

                  I don't believe walking under a ladder is bad luck but I think if you believe it is, it can be in your own mind. You'll start attributing every unfortunate incident to it and perpetuate your belief in it.

                      The superstition about walking under ladders probably comes from actually walking under ladders and risk getting a paint bucket which hangs on the ladder on your head.

                            I was  climbing off a ladder and stepped in a bucket of paint

                              Whether you admit it or not, when you are dealing with the scary odds that are against you in the lottery, everyone has got to be on some level superstitious.  Besides, buying the lottery, everything else is out of your hands.  THere's got to be a charm, a ritual, or signs to look for to bring luck our way.  I am generally not superstitious (as in stepping on cracks, breaking mirrors, black cats, etc), but when I dream about numbers, I take it as a sign! 

                              Best,
