Personally: Any country hostile to America/ Americans.

    I'd stay away from the Axis of Evil...plus Afghanistan/Pakistan.

    Why? Because they suck!

     

    P.S. Is Vladivostok a country?

      I'd avoid any county where women are supposed to wear burkas.

        I Agree! Any country that denigrates women in society is a bad country. You want to evaluate a society, see how it treats it's women.

                    Back in the 1990's I was on vacation with my family and my mother handed the clerk her credit card to pay for a few gifts, the clerk looked at the card and responded by saying she didn't know Chevy Chase had his own bank.

                    For those who aren't  familiar with Chevy Chase Bank, they use to be based in the DC area.

                      A burka and some dark sunglasses might be a good disguise for a future lottery winner/artist claiming her prize Wink

                              Jill34786,

                              Maybe, maybe not. Such a disguise may draw Al Qaeda's interest and they'd hit the winner up for a huge 'donation.'

                              Don't know if it's urban legend or not, but some people say it's already happened somewhere.

                              Regardless of the particular religion, there's something wrong with any fundamentalist group that wants to keep the women completely covered up but yet treat them like breeders.

                              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.
