By worst l mean: Your returns were abysmal. Your loses piled up to a point where you wanted to walk away from the game forever, or came away constantly with a bad taste in your mouth from your loses.Maybe not as drastic as raiding the 401k- but you wish that year did not happen at all... l,m talking about that worst.

    Your recent posts seem like a cry for help. Especially this one.

    My advice from one LP member to another is to stop, or slow down when in a bad streak. You'll drive yourself nuts worrying whether you can get ahead of the game or not. I get It.

    But you have to stay strong.

    Noise-gate, we may disagree on some things, but I like your posts. Let's not let an LP, E-Friendship get spoiled by something that isn't really Important in the big scheme of things. Smiley

      Cry for help . What would that be O wise One? l am merely trying to inject some humor into a forum that at times seems to take things too serious.

       If l feel that l will be driving myself " nuts" as you put it- l will get professional help- and you not it. Since you look at yourself as the 900 Lb Gorilla of wisdom and intellect here, why bother with my posts? Run along and play.

        Wrong I'm afraid. I have not much Intellect, but I do have wisdom, street smarts, and some lucky days.

        Why bother with your posts?

        So let me get this straight. You ask questions, yet complain when they're not satisfactory within your line of thinking. lol

        Maybe you should refine your posts to a more specific guideline/outline, whatever.

        If I was smart, I'd have at least 3 million dollars at my disposal at any given time. Green laugh

        I'm not wise, trust me !

          Then take your " wisdom, street smarts & lucky days" and put it  in a capsule,  bury that sucker for future generations to learn from you.

              I think I only win back about 10% of the money I spend. I just ignore the losses because what I'm after would wipe away any money I have ever lost. This year I have not won more $20 and I think I am almost approaching $200 in ticket buying Unhappy

              That money's gone fo ever

                Hopefully you an adult that can handle helpful criticism.

                First off: There is no hostility. But your " wisdom and street smarts" seems to give you license to always be right.

                My observation is that when you ask a question and are given an answer- you CHANGE the rules.

                Previously you asked for folks to cite a convenient store that has more than ONE Lottery winner. When the answer is provided, instead of saying " Thanks l did not know that"- you throw a wrench into the works by adding- show me a store that has " More than 10 or a dozen winners".. do you not see how that comes off? Your  " wisdom & street smarts" shows arrogance.

                l hold nothing against you because l do not know you, but show some humility even if it goes against your very fiber.

                Here is something for you to read..Enjoy.

                 

                Desiderata

                Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
                As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
                Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
                Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
                If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
                for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

                    It seems you're the only one giving me some ficticious power i don't have.

                     

                     

                    My observation is that when you ask a question and are given an answer- you CHANGE the rules.

                    Specifically, how do I change the rules? Specific examples of real events please.

                    No, what I stated at one point was for someone to show me a store that had more than 10 JP wins, and that would make me wonder, but then I realized that It doesn't matter how many times a store has JP wins. There are millions of losing tickets for that one lucky person to win, whether they played at that store, or at any other store. Bottom line is that thwy have to get the correct numbers to win a JP, not which store they frequented.

                    This is getting tiring, and it's my fault for responding when I said i wouldn't anymore. My bad.

                          We were never enemies. Your wisdom & Street smarts ought to have told you that a long time ago.

                              Not friends.

                              A friend is a  person  attached  to  another  by  feelings  of  affection  or  personal  regard.We don't qualify as such.
