I checked the box "it depends". I would ask them for the money back I loaned them and they never paid me back!

    Friends/Family ask me for money now and I haven't even won the lottery yet.  Rant

    LOL!! That's a good point!!!

    I knew someone who hit the jackpot personally and i never asked him for a dime. I did ask him how he did it though and he told me he heard that the number 11 was a magic number and he played 11, 22, 33 etc.

    It's better to ask for permission than to beg for forgiveness.

        Which game was this?  I don't recall ever seeing winning numbers like those.

          I really don't remember RJOh. This was back in my home state of PA in the late '80's or early 90's. I think it was the early '90's.

            that's almost like hinting that you want a cut...i would head up to chocktaw ridge and leave a envelope for rdgrnnr because of his devotion to this site. he is morally sound and would make an ideal recipient of anyone's lottery winnings and deserves a slice...

            i guess i need a geography refresher,for some reason i thought chocktaw ridge was much farther south like somewere in miss. time to go to maps.
