noise-gate,

Nice little fantasy you have going but all you're doing is letting your desire for 'stones' override any common sense.

Coin Toss-

Listen Up...

stones   
refers to the degree to which someone will stand up for them self or what one is responsible for, or, the degree to which one will go to get the job done. At work, having stones can be career-limiting if the company you work for values yes meninstead of people that can actually get something done right. On film or TV, action heroes typically have major stones. However, you can have stones but no brains, which can lead to disastrous consequences if your timing sucks.
Employee (with stones) to Boss (without stones): "Dude, grow some stones and push back on these stupid requests - they are just wasting my time! I can't get this code written in time, you idiot!" 
Boss to Employee: "You're FIRED! But, uh, no, uh, wait, that might get me in trouble because you're the only one who knows how to do this job. Uh, what should I do? 

Relate this to my Original question bud.

    I would not tell a one in here. However, I might give the site a mention at the press conference. Before I get told not to do the press conference, in michigan I can't claim the prize without giving my name out.

      I am splitting the jackpot with my mother so I can come on here and tell everyone in my blog that I finally hit the big one.  I just hope that anyone would not ask for help or money because the answer is no way hoser!-weshar75

        "Stones"... yes.

        Tell anyone I don't know... Absolutely not.

        So, unless you are my lawyer, accountant, financial planner, or one of my 3 family members or one of my 2 friends of over 20 years, I will not be telling you.

        But if I know you, I might take you out to lunch, on me!

          noise-gate:

          From your own post:

          "However, you can have stones but no brains, which can lead to disastrous consequences if your timing sucks."

          OH THE IRONY.

          Thanks for the entertainment.

          If you can't see how that relates to your original question, bud,  you need a lot more than luck.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
