I saw a white squirrel years ago and almost wrecked my car when I saw it.  lol I love all animals.

You a saw an alien. It was trying to tell you that the odds of winning any lottery are insane.

Oh, I forgot to ask you. Have you won a jackpot yet? I haven't.LOL

      Artist77 lets be honest, playing the lottery is a complete waste of time unless we win a jackpot.

      The lottery is major sunk cost.

          I like the guessing part as many people do.  If you are always focused on the result, you miss the adventure of the journey.

              Are we talking about Vegas? You have a big chance of meeting a hot girl, so losing money is not a big deal.

                    Thrifty will become creative someday.

                    Someday Thrifty will learn to have fun.

                    A dollar (or 3) and a dream is originality.

                    Thrifty will learn the journey is 99% of the fun...

                          even if the journey takes you in a different direction.

                    Thrifty will NOT get a book deal someday. ;)

                      I have become too cheap when it comes to playing lottery. I have been saving lines to play shotgun.

                          I went to a lottery retailer to buy a $10 Mega Millions ticket today. I decided not play once I got to the store, I felt that the jackpot was too low to spend my money on it.

                            I would rather win a low jackpot then no jackpot at all.
