I WILL BUY A $30 POWERBAll TICKET SOMEDAY.

You have to be in it to win it

"This is a very common slogan used by lotteries and football pools companies alike. What this slogan is saying is you can't dream of winning the lottery or the pools unless you part with your beer tokens. Of course they are right. If you never buy a ticket you can never win. But how many times do you dream of winning? Do you have to win every week to be happy? Of course not. You only have to win once. So you only have to buy one ticket, at some time in the future to be able to legitimately dream of winning a huge jackpot.

So you might as well get used to the idea that winning the lottery is unlikely. But it's also nice to have a dream, it is good for your mental health. So here is the secret: Buy a ticket. One day. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe not." By Martin, Willett.

"Someday Thrifty will buy a lottery ticket so he can dream about winning because the odds against winning have no effect on dreams. Even though there is a reality when the ticket is checked, it won't prevent Thrifty from someday buying another ticket and keep on dreaming." By Stack47

            I can read the subject line of any Thrifty post and know who it is without looking.

            Am I a butterfly dreaming I am a person, or a person dreaming I am a butterfly?

                You are both a butterfly and a person, dreaming of a butterfly and a person.

                  Im thinking that the days you don't buy a ticket, your NOT playing the lottery............

                  And the days that you do.............   Those are the days you ARE........
