    Only is not funny, he is either too stupid or too drunk to carry on an intelligent conversation. Now he is starting to question the existence of reality itself. I hope he puts down his bottle and goes to work today.

      Personally I feel the average lottery player is just someone having fun hoping to win someday, maybe. Their not stupid, crazy just enjoying the game. Yes there are more serious players. I was told by a store owner he was asked if when his store closed if they could run numbers off his machine for two hours straight on this last jack pot. And someone if true to what he bragged about in LA dropped 20 grand on this last one and won min. But that's unusual. And the same people most likely would walk into the casino and drop 5 grand on a table. I just like looking at the numbers and trying to figure out the next nexus to the group. I could afford easily over a 100 a week on tickets but normally keep it under 20. And to be honest I have won some nice jack pots in Vegas. But again walk in when I go which is maybe every five years and keep my limit to 200. So bottom line is its all personal. Each individual treats it differently. And since we are all adults it's quite no one dam business if I want to play the lottery but my own. And if there was one perfect system that worked we would be one big rich group.

      See Ya!

      Win once, win big.

        CNN Money Was Forced To Take Down This Idiotic Lottery Tips Video

        Jill Krasny Mar. 16, 2012, 4:03 PM 5,187 17

        Yesterday, Zac Bissonnette, author of Debt-Free U and a prominent personal finance expert, launched a Twitter tirade on a highly dubious video that hit the web yesterday.

        The CNN Money video featured Richard Lustig, a self-published author in Florida who's won the lottery several times.

        After the video aired, his $34.50 book—Learn How to Increase Your Chances of Winning The Lottery—shot up to #2,073 on Amazon

        Here, Bissonnette debunks Lustig's advice and gives his not-so-gentle take on why CNN flubbed this one big time. 

        First, Lustig says to "set a lottery budget," dividing your monthly household spending by ten. He also recommends buying 10 tickets of the same game at a time since "almost every single time you'll find a winning ticket in there." 

        Bissonnette's take: "The budget should be zero. The lottery works randomly. Unlike poker or blackjack, there's nothing you can do to gain an advantage at this. You can't make decisions to influence the outcome." It's just like roulette—there's no game of skill. 

        Next, Lustig tells viewers to skip the "Quick Pick" or randomized numbers to better their odds. 

        Per Bissonnette: "I hesitate to even say this, but if you do buy lottery tickets, picking random numbers is the way to do it. Using random numbers you pick means you're more likely to pick numbers someone else has, and then you'll be more likely to split."

        Bissonnette describes the video as an epic fail for a credible and highly respected news site.

          My Point Exactly- l mean come on OM- 20 pages of " information" just because someone says they are who they say they are?

           

          Remember...

          Youree dell Harris? In the late 1990s, Harris began to work for the Psychic Readers Network under the name Cleo. She appeared as a television infomercialpsychic in which she claimed she was from Jamaica.

          The Psychic Readers Network is said to have coined the title "Miss Cleo" and sent unsolicited emails,[3] some of which stated, "[Miss Cleo has] been authorized to issue you a Special Tarot Reading!... it is vital that you call immediately!" Charges of deceptive advertising and of fraud on the part of the Psychic Readers Network began to surface around this time.[4]

          In 2001, Access Resource Services d/b/a Psychic Readers Network was sued in various lawsuits brought by (among others) Arkansas,IllinoisIndianaKansasMissouriNew YorkOklahomaPennsylvaniaWisconsin, and Florida, and the Federal Communications Commission, although reports later said that "many customers were satisfied with the service".[5]

          In 2002, the FTC charged the company's owners and Harris' promoters, Steven Feder and Peter Stotz, with deceptive advertising, billing and collection practices; Harris was not indicted.[6] Her promoters agreed to settle for a fraction of the amount they took in.[7] It emerged that Harris was actually born in Los Angeles, and that her parents were U.S. citizens.[5]

          Are you saying Harris posted the Topic?

                Thanks, drinking, smoking, and doping is destructive behavior. Play a few dollars per draw is NOT.

                      You can probable think of many examples to support this view once you think about it. Some people care about doing the right thing.Patriot

                        I don't know. I do know the feeling I had of when we were in Vegas last and decided on our first night to go to circus steak house for dinner which was far from where we stayed. Stak house was full, so I walked to the carousel put two bucks in and hit 5 thousand, decided I needed to leave for some reason but as I was walking out put another 2 bucks in another machine and hit 500 was a dam good feeling when they are counting those 100 out in your hand.

                        See Ya!

                          Yep, I'm just in it for the fun. It has no impact on my life, I don't do without to buy lottery tickets, I don't go into a deep depression if I don't win. I like to dream about what I'd do if I won but when I don't win, it's no big deal.  I keep it at around $6 to $10 most weeks, but once in a while spend a bit extra when the big ones get really big. Although sometimes I think those big jackpots are too big! Like, scary big Disapprove
