Don't put words in my mouth (or in this case, thoughts in my head). I never said anything about thinking that only a few are aware of the odds.

 

It saddens me how few are actually willing to open their minds and actually try to understand other people's opinions.

Initially, I felt this way too. However, I soon came to realize that there are only a few vocal obfuscators here. I call them the "squad" or the "cabal." Some are possibly no more than multiple incarnations of one member. rdgrnr claims he/she is an independent item, but if you review his posts, you will have to wonder what would motivate someone to post what he/she does, where he/she does, as often as he/she does. The simplest explanation is that he/she is a member of the "Lottery Post Staff," referred to often in the News Forum.

What saddens me is that there are so few people here willing to post their opinions in a discussion like this. Hundreds view it, but a handful comment. I believe it's because most people are unwilliung to subject themselves to verbal abuse, even when it's from anonymous sources. In the end, it all boils down to the old admonition...

        In spite of your delusions jim, its much more likely that you are at a forum called "Lottery Post" where people believe in playing and winning the lottery. Does that surprise you?

                  Oh, I'm sure it was a real win because I didn't see "this is a recording" at the end of the post.

                            Right, only "idiots" and LP staff are multiple posters. Not sure you want to be in either of these groups.
