    Ridge, is time for you to regulate this thread with your wisdom my friend. I feel that some individuals do not know the meaning of living vicariously.Everything in the universe is so interconnected. I FEEL THAT WE ARE LIVING VICARIOUSLY THROUGH EACH OTHERS, THE UNIVERSE(GOD).

    YOU ARE LIVING VICARIOUSLY THROUGH PEOPLE THOUGHTS IF YOUR THOUGHTS OCCUPY THE SAME ENERGY FIELD IN THE UNIVERSE WHETHER THEY ARE GOOD THOUGHTS OR BAD THOUGHTS.

        Wait... there are Scrooge McDuck-ers out here?? I need to leave the forums once in a while. I LOVE Scrooge!!!

        Scrooge McDuckism is a powerful undercurrent here on Lottery Discussions with a strong following.  You'll find it's also most dominant on the various jackpot forums rather than among the Pick 3ers, who are usually proponents of Daffy Duckism or are non-denominational. 

        McDuckers also post a lot on the Lottery News Forum.  The Math and Lottery Systems Forums tend to be about evenly matched between Duck-Soupers, Scrooge McDuckers and Daffy Duckers.

        ValidationAll statements made above are accurate, precise, lucid and sometimes supported by factoids written down somewhere.

          It's of little use, THRIFTMEISTER.

          Some people are just not clear on the concept. 

          When the Dalai Lama says: "Make me one with everything", they think he wants a hot dog.

          Being an Oracle, I'm confronted with this sort of thing on a daily basis.

            Have you IMAGINED, PICTURED yourself being a winner like those that have won a jackpot WHENEVER YOU BUY ONE LOTTERY TICKET

            I think everyone who plays has at least thought for a second about if they won. Otherwise, why play in the first place. Whether they think about it only once for a few seconds or almost constantly, lottery players have imagined what it would be like to win or pictured themselves winning.

            And so of course I do. I love to picture myself in a nice big house not having to worry about anything and I love imagining the things I would do in that free time with financials to do many things I've always wanted. 

            Of course, I still go on living my normal life every time I don't win, but still... it's something nice to day dream about.

                I think/daydream about winning the lottery A LOT..

                Things to buy, people I'd help, worldly places to visit (Egyptian Pyramids, Cayman Islands & on & on....)

                Even tho I haven't won, it makes me smile just to imagine!!

                And, I'm always happy to hear about the people that do win...

                Their stories & how awesome they must feel...

                Slim chance or not, I think we all feel we may win one day!

                  Rather than escape in someone else's dreams, try to use them to inspire yourself to create your own.

                  You start to lose pieces of your own identity when you let your self-worth come from the achievements of others. It slowly degrades your own ambition and erodes the confidence in your own ability to achieve great things. Rather than try something new, you endlessly question whether you'd be able to accomplish something like others did (So You Buy One Quick Pick instead of Developing a Lottery System of Your Own and Betting on the Numbers Your Lottery System Produced!).

                  A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                    First, it crosses my mind from time to time, but I don't actively think of myself as a lottery winner when I play. I don't play often enough anyway.

                    Second, when I do play, it is almost always the Pick 3. I've played only one jackpot game this year, and that was the January 4 Mega Millions $380 jackpot. I played for that drawing only because it happened to coincide with my birthday.

                    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!
