I pride myself in being an "elaborate Troll that should be ignored by all"...... lol. lol.

Sorry Ronnie, I regret to inform you that the Internet Troll Worldwide Association has denied your application for membership after you proved unwillingly to openly declare that the LOTTERY IS RIGGED.

Jesting that an individual has to play in CA and NY to win a multi state jackpot did not prove sufficient.

What really irritated board members was the thread on improving odds which in their minds promotes the idea that intelligent design and strategy can position players to be more successful. They characterized this doctrine as HERESY.

    Seriously what would happen if someone who posted their numbers on LP won the Jackpot? Are there some people who would try to figure out who they are? I would delete my account and come back under a different name, I think.

      I support powerball and it has been 16 years of little return of only $100.  But I am not bitter because I have dreams of winning that hopefully will happen one day.  Just waiting to see if my numbers come up that is all and good luck to me tomorrow night.  I would split the ticket with my mother so she can retire in style.  I got plenty of years left to enjoy the winnings.-weshar75

        Deleting your account wouldn't help much since the place where your ticket was purchased and the name of the lawyer representing your trust and cashing in your ticket would be public knowledge.

          But the members of LP would not be able to match this info to me.

            Sounds suspiciously like someone is planning on winning an upcoming jackpot.  Roll Eyes

                I just heard some guy say on TV that if he won the  PB, he would put ONE million dollars in the bank and live off that interest and give the rest away.  He needs to redo the math there.

                  10 years ago maybe, but today better go with 5. Just to be on the safe side........

                    He'd be smarter to invest and put all in the bank.   Then donate each year out of the excess interest and income to charities.   They would appreciate a steady stream better than a one time lump gift!  Plus, he would have back up.   One million won't go far or earn much interest these days of growing inflation!  Even at 5% that would only be 50,000 a year.   Most people aren't interested in living on that small income, of course that is a very large income to me right now.

                      I Agree!

                       

                      And he should do his research on where he donates. Well established charity organizations use about 10% of donations to directly fund the causes they promote. If I ever win I just won't be writing blind checks to every big named charity, but I want to support specific initiatives in tangible ways.

                       

                      You need money for the children's home? How about I renovate the dorms, buy food supplies, etc.

                       

                      I have worked long and hard with my six psychics to come up with the winning combination!

                        Perhaps donating to a commune for psychics would be wise........What?

                          There's a novel idea! It won't be tax deductible, but unquestionably a worthy cause.

                            I think I would first require that they engage in a little friendly competition at:

                             Do some number combinations have better odds?

                            To see if they can stack up to the likes of say mcginnin56. or x1kosmic

                              Compete with Irish LuckLep? Are you serious? Maybe if I had such rigid screening protocols I would have recruited better psychics and won by now
