Ok, here's the setup. 

We're becoming a zombie nation.  The zombie plague could become humanity's exit apocalypse.  Or the army and CDC could fix it, who knows?

The dead are walking, so far not many and they are the shambler zombies you can evade by walking faster. 

Even if the end of the world is coming, gonna need money for as long as it can still buy stuff, right?

How many zombies would there have to be in your local population to prevent your going to the store to buy lottery tickets?  Doesn't count if you're going for supplies anyway, we're taking tickets only, well maybe tickets, chips and a six pack.

    Very funny BobP.

    I was just curious, are these george romero, stephen king or john carpenter zombies?

    Can these shambler Z's ride bicycyles? Cause I dont really want to have to run to the store. (even though I do that sometimes anyway)

    I am still thinking it over. 

    (Dont forget to get some white owls with your six pack. and maybe some chewing tabacky)

            The clerks where I usually play are regular people but there's a certain time of day at that store the is "Zombie Hour".

            I'm not kidding, it's amazing, as soon as people get through the door they go into super slow-mo.

            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.

              These would be George Romero, Dawn Of the Dead seventies zombies that have to sneak up to catch you by surprise because otherwise almost anyone can out walk them. 

              Can't recall any Stephen King zombies, The Stand was man made plague read the unabridged version stands up well today as the day it came out. 

              John Carpenter's zombies are on Mars, they may want our women, but not our lottery tickets.

              I hear that if you give zombies chewing tabacky they explode.  Have to test that theory.

                Movies tend to gloss over the part between the first zombie and when hordes decend on the city center.

                I'm thinking Shawn of the Dead where every day he evades the panhandler and one day the guy is a zombie, little difference.  Could take years to reach WWZ stage.  Might be illegal in some states to kill zombies that don't bite.  Goberment could be quietly taking them off the streets and we don't even know it.  Look at the naked guy in Pa that punched through the police cruiser windshield reaching for the cop, took two bullets and walked away.   Story makes no sense until the word zombie is added. 

                Question is: When you begin to notice the creatures, before zombie armageddon, how many wandering around in your area would put you off going out for lottery tickets?

                  LOL I think the Zombie epidemic would be just that...if it would or even could happen...an epidemic, when they just run amuck biting and infecting, and I think they glossed over the part between the first and the hordes because that's how most diseases are...I mean we don't know who the first person was to have the Spanish flu and that wiped out like 2 % of the population back in the 19th century, AIDS, Cancer, etc...you never know who's first...but if it did happen....you got bigger problems than worrying about lottery tickets....and if you did manage to get those tickets and if you by some change you won the jackpot....how can you collect in a zombie world???

                           In the 70's   The Night Stalker,  showed us,

                      that if you pour Salt in a Zombie's Mouth  and Sew their Lips together,

                           they'll kinda-of   explode that way too.

                       The Main Zombie that, every now and then, that prevents me from getting a Ticket

                                 comes out of a Beer Can.

                       Other than that ... a Shotgun and  a Box of Shells, should get you to the store.

                                                ( In Zombie World ).   Goof

                        Ah, the Night Stalker



                        And this just in: Lottery officials said that they have refused a Zombie's claim that he had purchased a winning $235 million dollar Powerball ticket but then mistakenly ate the ticket. Lottery officials also said they will start printing on the back of each ticket "Do Not Eat This Ticket".

                              I would go out regardless of the zombie's as I may be able to buy them off, if not, once I claim the funds I can use the cash to barracade my door.
