      What a great month I've been having, first I find gold while scuba diving, Then I found out I was inheriting a billion dollar empire, now 300 million in the lottery, I am making my will out today, I'm leaving everything to my Cat .

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

                          This is a neat thread, haymaker.

                          I think if I hit a jackpot and had to go to a press conference I'd create some outrageous explanation of how I picked the numbers, one that would hve everyone gettign their calculators out, or running out the next day to buy the XM291GX RNG available from the Sure Thing novelty company.

                          Might even use some of the members names here in some kind of coded statement.

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

                          Lep

                          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 has really gave this some thought and decided he'd tell the world ridge runner gave tiggs the numbers for the big win...Then all the reporters would throw up thier pads and pencils in the air and say "yeah right" then walk out mad cause they would know they'd have big lie on thier hands and no story..tiggs took a shot...
