Because it's the cheapest form of enterpayment outside using the public library lol

    Powerball jackpot is $131 Million. Are you spending $2 for a ticket? LOL

    I may, but I don't know ABSOLUTEY SURE I will win. But I don't win, I'll PM you ALL the things i would've bought had i won. In fact, after every PB draw, I'll PM you about how I would've spent the money. I hope you don't mind. It's only for about5 years of PMing. Green laugh

        That reminds me of when I took my car into the shop and the mechanic said it looked like I'd blown a seal.

        I told him to fix the dam car and leave my personal life out of it.

          Kinda remind me of when my brother blew his engine Ridge- he takes it into the shop and the guy says " yep you blew your head", and he responded " l don't think so, l used it last night"

                Story sounds fishy.

                      A long time ago, my mom was visiting with my dad's friend's wife;  the woman had dropped out of school before the sixth grade and could barely read or write.  She and my mom were talking about the woman's son getting a girl in trouble and having to marry her.  The woman was placing most of the blame on her son's girlfriend but then shook her head and said "Well, it takes two to tangle."
