I think there was a Senator or someone like that who won a significant prize a few years back.

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!

    This may have been hashed out here before.  If so, my apologies.

    Here's a question to ponder: Do you think there are any people who are already multi-millionaires and play the lottery?  If you do, do you think they win substantial prizes?

    It's not like they can't afford to play thousands per week.  If they're famous, rather than buy in person, they could always have their hired help go buy the tickets.

    I'm not asking if you think they should play or should not play.  Any rich person that does play doesnt care what anyone else's opinion might be. 

    Just for the record, I'm a millionaire "wannabe".   That's why I play.

    YES THEY DO. They only play when the jackpots are big.  Most of them play 1 QUICK PICK LINE PER DRAWING.

      If I'm very wealthy I will keep playing, but will spend a few hundreds on full wheel systems for most draws and feel the buzz of multiple wins when the numbers come up.

              LOL Rosie, I can no more explain why he needs daily massages than I can explain why he says Polar Bears are going extinct when the truth is that there are more Polar Bears now than there ever have been. Personally, I think he's gone off the deep end. He's got this massive ego that needs to be stroked (I could really segue into a massage joke here but I won't) constantly and his wife just left him and he has made ungodly amounts of money off of a hoax perpetrated on his fellow citizens and maybe the pressure is more than he can bear.

              I don't know if the police were called. I just heard he insists on massages on areas of his anatomy that massage therapists don't want to massage and he goes into a rage when they won't and hence some of them are complaining.

              I honestly think he needs help.

                Never knew Tippy but knew a lotta wimmins that voted for her husband. Always wondered if they believed everything everbody told them or just what I told them.

                    You have a circular line of reasoning that drives me to drink, tiggs.

                    And that's why I like it.

                          Hey Ridge, that theory was just a joke I know you self medicate when it comes to massages. Gore was globetrotting to lay the groundwork for the international carbon tax. He got a speeding ticket on the Oregon coast heading north from a grove meeting.i don't think your old PU could make it to the coast, letalone exceed the speed limit of 55 without a tow.

                              Hey, don't go makin promises you cain't keep now talkin bout thet Jack, I ain't all thet fer from Kintuck and in this heat I'm thirsty and ornry as a blue-nosed mule in fly-time.

                              I aims to get this hillbilly talk right. I was fetching a book yesterdays on hows to speak it, and fixin to finish it. Now If I got a grain a sense, some kin folk may help me out. Then I'll have me a shindig, and swollee the shine till sun up.

                              In the meantime, I got some taters heatin up, and i feel crazier than a run over dog. Neighbors round here are good but some are colder than well diggers behind. They can't never do nothin right anyways. They is nosier than a pet coon too. Some dem neighbors still have signs on their mobiles that say "Wide Load"...

                              I've been over sum of dem neighbors house. All you hear someon say is.."Somebody go jiggle the handle". The wife even had a homemade fur coat.

                              I finally left the house, because one family member thought a Volvo was part of the female anatomy, and  called a computer mouse a critter..

                              I decided to leave that town fer good, and tried to move into a motel 6, but they turned off the lights when they saw me coming.
