Hi,

I'm a journalist working on a piece about the lottery. I assume most people who visit this forum are regular players and I'd love the opportunity to ask you some questions about your playing habits and experience with the lottery. Feel free to inbox me directly. Thanks

Alex

I play all the jackpot games plus Daily 4 in Texas. Everybody says the same thing...."I play to get rich...quit my job..." yada, yada, yada. Forget all that crap. I play for one reason, and one reason only. I just love to lose money every single day! It's all I live for. Why, I lost again today, and it just made my day. On top of that, I only sold $600 of furniture. So not only did I lose money on the lottery, I didn't make any money today either.

It just doesn't get any better than that!

    What ever happened to chili on a stick?

    oh man... i want them both!  Chicken-Soup-in-a-Sponge with a side of chili-on-a-stick!  My kids would instantaneously develope a greater respect for my culinary efforts (and I would REALLY enjoy watching them eat!)

      I work with a student newspaper at an east coast college. i'd be more than happy to share more details via email.

      ohh..you're a minor....

      and thought you could mine us...

      ? for you, is your college paper bent to the liberal side ?

      never seen anyone looking to share details via email.

        My kids don't let me watch them eat , they are afraid I'll sell their food for lottery money.

              Ahh, that one had a few technical difficulties with the oyster crackers not sticking very well to the outside of the frozen chili-pop.

              I think it was just ahead of it's time too.

                      FROZEN... well now that takes most of the fun out of it.  I was looking forward to a nice piping hot chili-pop. with the STICK made out of oyster crackers...
