Aquarius - you are over 649 years old?  That is impressive.  What type of lottery pool did y'all engage in 649 years ago?

Good one!  Very funny, maximumfun!  Jester

For the benefit of those who may have missed the joke, aquarius was referring to Lotto 649, the Canadian national lottery game.

        In a lottery pool you only get a certain $ of the prize, I would rather buy my own ticket and win the full amount!

          I agree, Elizabeth, and you also avoid the inevitable legal challenges and hassles 

          Unless you're in a very, very small pool with one or two of your very closest and trusted family members or friends.

          Cuz money can make a lot of people goofy, both inside and outside of your pool.

          Though there are people in large pools who have no problems whatsoever too.

          But then the majority of jackpots are won by individuals, not pools.

            I started a pool at my crap job but its hard getting people to commit on a weekly basis.  To many skeptics out there and I don't have time for that.  In general, I think they are good... lowers your dollar cost average.

              You should be ashamed of making fun of very old man. 649 years is not something to fart at. Can you imagine I qualify for the back pension for 584 years? Who cares about lottery now.
