Okay, me first.

I went with, What was the question again?          YES

 

I will try harder to stay on topic and the topic is the Games!

 

But I might start a blog to get off topic once and a while. I have some ideas kicking around about the games too and think the Blog is the right place. There really are some good Blogs here at LP and I just wish there were more hours in the day.

 

Vote!            Vote Frequently, Vote Often!   Let's have fun!

    I agree.  At times, I get sick of reading about politics on these boards.  I joined to read & talk about the lottery.....nothing else.  I get enough of everything else on the news, at work and everywhere else.

      This question, with all things considered, will pretty much prevent the desired effect. Or maybe, prevention wasn't the intention.

        Please, this is a very scientific poll. Notice I have all the question fields filled and two opportunities for ADD impaired. I’m not trolling for snags -jeeze, the first reply was pretty good. There is no white belt and shoes conspiracy in this poll. .. I don’t have an ace up my sleeve on this; that is another thread. Even if you turn your monitor on its side and squint real hard at the poll, there is nothing to see that is not there.

        Are we having fun yet?

          Absolutely, after all this is a Lottery site (LOL). Politics, religion and anything else should be taken up at the appropriate time and at the appropriate place, church on Sunday and Tuesdays in November (smile).

           

          The more we concentrate on the numbers the better off we will be at hitting the numbers, just my opinion on this.

            Well, since this is for the sake of science.

            I most certainly have to put my 2 cents in.

            I'm guilty of going off on rants.

            I'm guilty of going off topic.

            However, I will not be guilty of being a hypocrite by saying yes , then reminding people about religion and elections .

                Many of US are guilty of going off topic at times, that's human nature. But the basic question was should we TRY HARDER, so to answer YES is not being a hypocrite, it only means you will try harder.

                So I guess that means you won't even give it a try,<snip> , such a shame.

                          I say let it flow.  If you don't like it, change the channel, skip past the BS if you don't like it.

                          I tend to give a short story as to why I pick some numbers, and they do come out. I add humor, and have never had a complaint, I know when to stop.

                          I have made people money and at the same time, put a smile on their face.

                          So, yeah, we should just stick to lottery numbers but I don't think there is anything wrong with making short, simpe comments, and if you don't like it, just skip it and look at the numbers.

                          I bet half the people, if not more, that visit this site, just look at numbers and never comment, kind of live in the shadows.

                          GOD is great, beer is good and people are crazy! Crazy
