I was 12 when I first started playing.  Used to buy scratch off tickets for $1.00 at this gas station near my home.

        Yesterday when I was young
        The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue
        I teased at life as if it were a foolish game
        The way the evening breeze may tease the candle flame

        The thousand dreams I dreamed
        The splendid things I planned
        I always built alas on weak and shifting sand
        I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
        And only now I see how the years they ran away

        Yesterday when I was young
        So many lovely songs were waiting to be sung
        So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
        And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see

        I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out
        I never stopped to think what life was all about
        And every conversation I can now recall
        Concerned itself with me and nothing else at all

        Yesterday the moon was blue
        And every crazy day brought something new to do
        I used my magic age as if it were a wand
        And never saw the waste and emptiness beyond

        The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
        And every flame I lit too quickly quickly died
        The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
        And only I am left on stage to end the play

        There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
        I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
        The time has come for me to pay
        For yesterday....
        When I was young

          I started buying online lottery tic when I was a 19 year old sailor, continued to do so through college, and even now. I used to get all excited when jackpot reached Mega Mondo levels, but now my wisdom tells me it really doesn't matter if jackpot is $12 million, $40 million, or $650 million...all that truly matters is you having a ticket for a chance to win, and only when your ticket matches those magical six drawn numbers does the jackpot or cash value amount matter at all.

          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              by law you cant purchase tickets until you are 18 in new york...so you aint gonna get very far trying to buy one at that age...

              i started in 2005, when i noticed a very uncanny movement of the numbers...i think that was my first 4/5 win...

              i still remember the combination...

              1  8  17  22  33

              yeah...i was hooked after that...the only number i missed was 17...

              i remember both 1  and  8 were 1 day skips...  the 17 was i think out like 13 days or something...

              the 22 threaded the needle from a recent  21  23  score...

              and the 33 was adjacent off of a 32...(or was it 31?)

                  When I was at the ripe old age of eight and a half, I remember being fascinated walking by the lottery ticket counter. So many people were

                  lining up with big smiles on their faces to buy a shot at their dreams. NH was the first state in the union to begin selling online lotto tickets

                  successfully in 1964. I screamed and begged for my mother to buy me a single ticket.   Crying  Rant She usually gave in and bought me one

                  just to shut me up. I don't recall if their were any big winners. Ahhh........youth. So many tickets........so little time.    Banana   Naughty

                    My fisrt lottery ticket?...I started playing back when my dad got his store in 2001. But I was usually playing for fun, here and there. It wasnt until recently that I started to play for real. Even tho I am still underage, ill play to save up money for college or a car.

                      I don't know how New York is but in Chicago you can pretty much but whatever you want at those hindu corner stores regardless of age.

                          I started playing when scratch offs when I was 23. That's when the Louisiana Lottery first started up.
