    Sounds like you've read the book Die Broke.

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

    Lep

    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.

        Yes, because I would be on a spending plan NOT a savings plan.

            One can almost always count on you to come up with a real zinger Ronnie- but you right,  as someone once said to me
            " l will be leaving ashtrays behind- ash included for the kids-My Ash, share that!
            Apparently he calls them all worthless Crap, l asked him once why?- his response" Drugs, Jail bailouts, divorces & wrecking his 1960 Shelby Cobra. Yikes.

              I see my myself leaving a lot of it for my future kids and grandchildren.  You can only buy so much stuff before you don't need anything else.

                No, that's not my plan per se... to exhaust all my funds upon death... At best, poor planning may lead to that construct...

                I'm not a believer that one who dies with the most toys- wins...

                      I dont think its poor planning to give yourself an annually spending allowance.

                        But you can buy really really expensive stuff. Especially in CA. I heard J-Lo fill her pool with oil of Olay.

                          Wow, if the kids are "worthless crap".... What does that make the parent who said it?

                            I Agree! In reality, giving most of it to my son would be part of my spending plan. lol.Green laugh

                              You don't have to have kids to have a will b2b-ster. Are they ZERO charitable organizations that you have more faith in than the "tax man" ??? Only a Scrooge would give it to their states general fund over the Red Cross or some other organization that helps people in need........

                              Perhaps your state will put up a red light camera with a plaque bearing your name??
