Which part of this story would Fate ( if it existed ) have a hand in?

Back in 2014, sex offender Timothy Poole officially won $3 million as part of a Florida lottery called Super Millions, but since he was a convicted pedophile, two of Poole’s former victims sued him for the money. A judge in the civil lawsuit said the child molester would be allowed to keep and spend his money.

Would it  not suggest that " Fate" has a morbid sense of humor?...just asking.

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.

    I stand corrected. Thanks.

    No problem, easy mistake to make.

    At least you got the picture to post!

    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.

      yes. i have been taught that is 2% of the people truly control the wealth. I finish college years ago expecting to make and be exposed to $60,000 or $70,000 salaries. The society is limiting me and exposing me to welfare and government programs that are controlling and not available.   I am able to put together cash 5 numbers . all exact numbers . I have done this several times, but its played on  different days. They do not think im worth $100,000. If I give it away to certain people with houses or work for state and federal it works for them and they win and do not share with me. Some people are under the impression if you have a house and a car that information from a poorer person should be free to the wealthy, but I disagree.  Certain people they just want them to live at the bottom of the chain cycle. I am able to match 4 out of 5 in jackpot  games such as meagamillion and powerball sometimes but they are on different days.

      Well, just like one of my kids that went to college. You fell hook, line, and sinker for all that liberal BS they teach in college. And the b*tch of it is, I got to pay for it.

      The 1 or 2 percent that "controls" wealth are smarter and better than you and me and made their money. However, no matter how they acquired their money, they do not control the lottery. When you make statements like that, your credibility flies out the window because it makes no sense.

        It is nothing but luck.  I wish the Powerball or Megamillion numbers were 10 white and 3 powerball or megaball. It's the same thing as it stands now; except JP will get bigger, which me likes it.  Forget about the odds; it's all about luck.

          Luck
          anybody follow basketball? too bad..I'm rolling.
          most NCAA coaches will tell you, that to make it through March Madness, you have to have some bit of luck..or  Catch
          a break or two. (not to be confused with a fast break, or taking a break)
          There talking about Luck

          So when Christian Laettner made what is now refered to as "The Shot" in the 1992 Duke vs. Kentucky Basketball game. was that Luck?
          Probably...but what they don't tell you is that Laettner was perfect from the field that night he went 10 for 10.
          so, if the the last shot was luck....what would you consider the other 9 shots?

          to believe it was pure luck...no...there was a great deal of Skill, Hard Work, Dedication, Patience, as well as Faith, which I have not
          heard anyone mention. the driving force that pushes us beyond the barriers of our own sense of ability.

          Fate
          I have heard the cinderella story time and time again, it was destiny they say....
          is it really????
          a predetermined event to happen in our life that no matter what choices we make that we will still end up going down
          the same final path and reaching the same destination.
          Bologna
          So no matter how hard the players worked that season, no matter how well Coack K instructed them, that team was destined to win
          two BACK TO BACK NCAA Championships...
          I'm not buying it...
          We've all heard the old saying, "Chance favors the prepared mind".
          Luck and Fate alone will not get you there.

          in my opinion, it is a formula of many variables...
          I wish I knew the whole equation...I don't...

          I do believe there are many paths in this life , and our choices are what guide us to our final destination.

          Is winning the lottery Luck or Fate?
          I don't know...I believe they are both involved.

          I would Imagine
          it is everything coming together in perfect harmony one moment in time where the universe fell into place
          at least that is how I invision it.

          If I was to win, I don't think I would spend a whole lot of time pondering instead of enjoying.

          "So when Christian Laettner made what is now refered to as "The Shot" in the 1992 Duke vs. Kentucky Basketball game. was that Luck? "

          Considering Laettner probably made that shot hundreds of times in practice, getting the ball into his hands was the key. Kentucky decided not to guard Grant Hill who was inbounding the ball and he threw a strike to Laettner. 

          A similar thing happened in 2011 when Kentucky went to Indiana. KY was leading 72 - 70 with 5.6 seconds left when Christian Walford made a three pointer at the buzzer. And just like in the game 20 years earlier KY didn't guard the inbounder. Was Indiana lucky because nobody guarded the inbound or was it because Doron Lamb missed his free throw the play before?

          Had he made the first free throw and missed the second, more time would run off the clock. Because there are lots of other things happening before the shots, it's neither fate or luck.IMO it's the "butterfly effect".

            But then there's the question of why not you?

            If someone is likely to win, does one player have some sort of "leg up" or advantage over everyone else?

            All it takes is one ticket with the right numbers to win.  I have seen big pools buy 1,000 or more tickets for these big $500+ million drawings and not even get a $50 return on investment, but yet some people buy one or just a few tickets and win it all.

            If I told you there was a new game out that had a 1 in 5 TRILLION odds of winning, yet someone wins the JP every month, would you still say "Why not me?".

            My point is, is there a limit of how hard a game has to be before you say to yourself that the probability of me winning the JP is so low that it's not worth spending the money? Is it half a billion to 1 odds, 3/4 billion, or more? I'd really love to know the answer because I've been wondering for a while now.

              For example men are valued more. Many men can find funding for sex change. Some single parent mothers still never get their child support. Certain women if they do not approved of their features or ethnic background are treated terrible.The people that run the state and make the decisions may even blackmail the employees or the state interviewer may have a stubborn heart. it may be federal.
