Something I need more of. Hyper

You have to be careful what you ask for!

Because their are three types of Luck: Good Luck, Bad Luck, and No Luck at All!

        Not the dictionary' s  definition, but yours? Do you think that some people are predisposed to win the lottery or is it as some folks * meself included advocate" Being in the right place at the right time?". One of the member's signature says " Luck favors the prepared"..cute, but are we not all prepared or do you think you are totally unprepared to win? Thoughts anyone?

         - Have a Great Week People & as always : Stay Healthy while you at it! 

        Not the dictionary' s  definition, but yours?

        Its very convenient for you to create your own rules isn't it?

        I get heckled by you and your alien succubus boyfriend for using the word "abroad" correctly.

        Google Merriam Websters.  Generally if you have to cross a large body of water then you are going abroad. I don't have to be going to France.

        I have more credibility in my little finger as a lottery player, then you have in your entire state.  And I have more crediblity as a lottery player then the star system of your A.S.B.

        I also have more luck. I am also a lot smarter and BETTER looking!!!!

              It is very convenient for me to create my own rules regarding this particular topic...why? because l started this thread.Why would l want people to quote the dictionary's definition when l can look it up myself? l want to engage people in a conversation, l want to know what lies within, not for them to  cut and paste information from other sources. I know that l did not insult you although you seem to think l did.

              First rule of thumb " Smart Guy" is if you want to join in a conversation whether in person or in a forum, attempt to at least get along with people instead of bragging about how smart you are, how good looking you are. People who are good looking don't have to tell people that they are- people know it.You don't read of Brad Pitt saying how much more good looking he was in his youth, neither do you read of Irina Shayk saying how beautiful she is.

              l can see why some have decided to call you TinKitty.

                abroad
                adverb or adjective

                in or to a foreign country

                So if someone who says they are going abroad to Hawaii and that same person tells you they know a lot about beating the lottery........
                Green laugh

                Also makes one wonder if all those people in Michigan who go from lower Michigan to the UP know they're going 'abroad', according to some, anyway.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                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.

                  As I have always said, there are players that it's WAY too easy to win, and others could never win.

                  Any jackpot winner can go up and buy more tickets and win any time at will.

                  Myself on the other hand, let's say PB and MM were to continue as games for the next 250,000,000 years with drawings twice a week per week.  I could hypothetically buy 100,000,000 tickets per drawing for 100,000,000 years and probably never even win a 5+0.

                      1. So you still going to be around 100,000,000 years from now Prince? You could have done the decent thing by at least telling the forum that you are immortal.

                        Yes, I have decided I'm not going to die before winning which would mean I'd be immortal! LOL
