Would you prefer the PB jackpot be won this Saturday or roll toward half a Billion and beyond?

Either way for me- how about you?

    Phædrus (Pirsig's name for his old self) was confronted by his academic peers and presented with a dilemma.

    dilemma, which is Greek for “two premises,” has been likened to the front end of an angry and charging bull.

    Phædrus, however, because of his training in logic, was aware that every dilemma affords not two but three classic refutations, and he also knew of a few that weren’t so classic... He could take the left horn .... Or, he could take the right horn.... Or he could go between the horns and deny that (there are only two choices).

    In addition to these three classical logical refutations there are some “illogical”, rhetorical ones. Phædrus, being a rhetorician, had these available too.

    One may throw sand in the bull’s eyes. It’s an old rule of rhetorics that the competence of a speaker has no relevance to the truth of what he says, and so talk of incompetence (is) pure sand. Socrates, that ancient enemy of rhetorical argument, would have sent Phædrus flying for this one, saying, “Yes, I accept your premise that I’m incompetent on the matter.... Now please show an incompetent old man what (your argument) is.”

    One may attempt to sing the bull to sleep. Phædrus could have told his questioners that the answer to this dilemma was beyond his humble powers of solution, but the fact that he couldn’t find an answer was no logical proof that an answer couldn’t be found.

    A third rhetorical alternative to the dilemma... (is) to refuse to enter the arena...(and claim that logic does not apply to the matter).

      If i dont hit Sat then i prefer it to roll naturally lol. Unless its hit by a family member who may be kind and toss me some crumbs of a big JP like this. I do like it when it starts getting into new record amounts just to watch the madness begin. 173 million would be more then i could ever spend and thats after sharing with family members rather generously. I enjoy watching the JP amounts grow after rollovers when we are getting close to new records Love reading the stories about what people would do with over half a billion dollars.

        Indeed, I like seeing big numbers on the Jackpot total and almost do wish I an no one else hits it to see it rise yet agian,going by the last two trends shouldnt the jackpot be in the 500million range next? Sure at first it will say its 390 then it be 425...then finaly 550 for the drawing.

        But.... ofcourse obvious answer I'd love to win it now if it were to be that way.

         Good luck to all whom will be playing a line or two...

        I'm playing 5 QP's because I keep looking at that Missouri 5qp ticket that won half the 587mill in Nov 2012. I just love lookin at that example ticket and thinking wow...it could be any ones ticket... LINE C for the WIN eheheheh

            If a jackpot ever approached half a billion or a billion the thread about it in the News forum would turn into more of an insane asylum than the jp fever threads already are.

            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.

                I would prefer to win tonight... if it rolls to half billion or more... I would prefer to win that jackpot LOL

                All kidding aside.. It's fun to be a part of the frenzy as it rolls and grows.

                If this balloon pops tonight... it's back to reality Sunday morning Crying

                            If I don't win a decent prize then I would prefer it rolls and I get another chance Wednesday but then I'm just selfish and only thinking of myself.  Other wise I don't really care either way.

                              What l would like to know is: Why does PB betting close at 7.00pm Pacific Time but MM betting closes at 8.00pm or thereabouts?
