the problem with this is one can't forsee if or how much they will hit in a years time.Even when I go on my long losing streaks,it is never anticipated.

The notion of' I should have saved 'is a little after the fact.

At any rate I personally don't gamble for profit,it is meant  for amusement purposes only.The bottom line being don't piss away what you can't afford to lose.

I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

          Life is to short, I spend money on another stuff so it doesn't bother me... also, to many other people winning smaller amounts (if they can do it so can I)

          THE OPPORTUNITY COST OF PLAYING THE LOTTERY? LOL

              Cool I invest in the lottery, not the stockmarket.

              THE LOTTERY AND THE STOCK MARKET ARE ZERO-SUM GAMES.

              The lottery example:

              A lottery is a "Zero-sum game". What one group of participants gains in cash, the other group of participants must lose. If we made a list of all the participants in a lottery, it might include:

              1) Federal Government (Lottery winnings are taxable)
              2) State Governments (Again lottery winnings are taxable)
              3) State Governments (Direct share of lottery ticket sales)
              4) Merchants that sell tickets (Paid by the lottery organizers)
              5) Lottery companies (Hint: They are not doing all this for free)
              6) Advertisers and promoters (Paid by the lottery companies)
              7) Lottery ticket buyers (Buy lottery tickets and receive payouts)

              The winners in the above list are:
              1) Federal Government
              2) State Government (Taxes)
              3) State Government (Direct share)
              4) Merchants that sell tickets
              5) Lottery companies
              6) Advertisers and promoters

              And the losers are:
                  (Mathematically challenged and proud of it). By Durango Bill.

                I play the lottery to get the money to save towards moving which I hope to do before summer is over and towards getting a passport so that I can travel..

                Also working at a job is not always enough to buy what we want or need, so the lottery is a nice supplement to your life!

                    You don't need a passport to come to the States. Just come in illegally and we'll give you a drivers license, food stamps, a welfare check, free education, free healthcare and free section 8 housing. All we ask in return is that you vote a certain way a few times in each election. Don't worry, no Voter ID is necessary.

                          rdgrnr,

                          I am not clever enough to know how to get in illegally to the United States..

                          The only way I know of to go there so far is by showing a passport to cross the border from Canada into the U.S.. Whether it is by car, bus, plane..

                          And I see the candidates  on television all the time and would love to vote over there.

                          Till then, I think of the U S  from afar;Dance
