I've fought with that thought for a ling while. Ever since they changed the Matrix to that ridiculous 5/75 it's almost impossible to hit the 2nd prize which is what I judge most lottery games on. And the 3rd prize's odds is astronomical as well. IMO they messed up a pretty good game. Not playing MM ever again.

I was just thinking about that last night.  I think they went the wrong route in trying to increase the JP.  They should have decreased the white balls to get a few more million dollar winners to encourage hope and keep people playing.  And they should have increased the number of megaballs to make it harder to win the jackpot.

When the jackpot gets high and people are spending lots of money, it seems like the states would have enough extra to put into the fund to pay a few more million dollar winners and still come out ahead.

    Is that right, conspiracy theorist?

        You're the one that brought up infowars, not me.  At least you get to know whats really going on, unlike your liberal mainstream media, and foxnews, which blackout anything that comes close to whats really going on.  Turn the idiot box off and do some actual thinking, instead of trying to constantly insult my intelligence.

          And you're the one that's conspiracy-minded, not me.  "My" liberal mainstream media?  Not mine, pal, and I don't watch TV, gave up cable a long time ago.   You probably get pretty good reception, what with that tinfoil hat you wear.

          It's hard to insult your intelligence, it's such a small target.  I still do a pretty good job of it, if I say so myself.

            I use a tv antenna for my reception,  you can use that tin foil hat you keep bragging about for tv reception.   As for conspiracy minded,  that just means I think more into things,  instead of just accepting things at surface value,  but yet you claim that I'm the fool here...You do a good job at showing you can't and won't question anything any further then what you have been Officially told, by those who are running things.

              "...that just means I think more into things"

              No, it means you read more into things that simply aren't there.  That's paranoia, not intelligence.

              Now, you'll have to excuse me, my Illuminati masters have told me to leave you alone. (well, they told me to "cease pulling the wings off of flies", they can be cryptic at times)  Besides that, I'm late for the party at the Bohemian Grove.  I sure hope Elvis will be there this year.

                      You're right, that's all I focused on.  The rest is basically gibberish.

                        Speaking of Gibberish,  this sure is a good definition of it,  this is what you wrote:   "Now, you'll have to excuse me, my Illuminati masters have told me to leave you alone.

                            You just have have problem with me because I'm not an conformist like you.  So while you were trying to insult me, I should be some how required to have humor towards it?

                            What a face palm on that one!

                              To me, you come off like you're confusing a lottery ticket, as a voting ballot.....That is dumb on the highest level!

                              It finally explains why I haven't won the jackpot yet.  I have only been getting the "ticket" once every two years perhaps twice if I voted in the Primaries.  You are right I can't believe I could have been that "dumb".  I wondered why I would get strange looks when I gave the poll workers a dollar when I signed in but since they gave me the sticker I thought I did it right.  I went home those nights and watched the drawings for the letters I - V - O - T - E - D to come up but only numbers ever came up.

                              Glad to know I don't have to wait until November 4th to get a ticket!  I already rushed out and bought a ticket for the MM and PB drawings this week!  Enjoy your Boycott!!
