I play the daily Wisconsin Supercash 6/39 game.  On Sunday I hurt my back.   Monday morning it took me a full 20 minutes to put my socks on and get dressed.  I then crawled into my truck and drove to the local Shell station to run my numbers (which I change daily based on the previous days numbers).  Must have been a sight, all bent over and taking baby steps.  LOL! 

Just wondering if others have similar stories.  For those who run numbers every day, what would it take not to run your numbers for a day or two?  Because you know what will happen if you don't ... Your numbers will come up.

    I was waiting for the part where you didn't manage to play your numbers and they did come up. I've gotten more aches and pains as I've gotten older and my feet are harder to reach, but not as bad as  you had it. I don't play any daily games, so I've got 3 or 4 days to get a ticket, but since I'm one of the people who waits for the rest of you to build the jackpot I play less than half of them anyway. I usually don't worry about it if something comes up and I don't get a ticket when I was planning to.

    I also believe in the butterfly effect, so I figure that the winning numbers will be different if I buy a ticket than if I don't buy a ticket. Of course I'd still be be wondering "what if?" if my numbers did come up when I hadn't bought a ticket.

      I started getting a 7 draw ticket (same number) on Sunday for the week for Cash 5.  Wasn't having any luck trying to pick my on numbers so I get a quick pick.

        That's the main reason I don't play a consistent set of numbers.  There are times when I am unable to play for one cause or another.  I can't imagine when a "what if" factor occurs (the numbers you play hit but you didn't have a ticket) how a person would feel.  It certainly would not be a pleasant experience.

          I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

            I remember when N.C. didn't have a lottery. I used to UPS my cash and filled out
            slips to my brother in law in another state. I remember speeding through traffic
            in order to get the shipment out on time so that he could purchase the tickets
            for us before the draws deadline.

            if I had a hunch, it would take alot to keep me out of a draw.
            I would have to be dead.

              I was playing the Wisconsin Megabucks pretty regular a year or two ago when it was getting up there and I was using a 'system.'  After quite a number of months and after it hit I gave that game a rest, but I've spent time keeping charts, stats, spreadsheets on Pick 3 in the past, even without playing every day.  In the end, you have to balance life, fun and work.  I would put lottery in the 'fun' category myself but everyone's schedule and lifestyle is different.  I've had some personal things take up some of my time this past couple years that have taken away from my time to spend on the fun stuff.  Looking forward to when I can retire and X off that work item from what takes up my time.  Smiley

              Here's wishing everyone the good fortune they're looking for.  Remember, if you happen to win more than a couple bucks, try and donate a little to one of your favorite charities - keep that positive mojo working!

                Had  a bout of sciatica nerve pain about 2 years ago and that had me bending over for quite a bit Ligb. Ended up purchasing a new mattress to align my posture while sleeping & it did wonder for my back along with exercise.

                *** On a side note Ligb : read that your State is bracing for major flooding,  hope you & yours are out of harm's way.

                  I threw my back out in the summer of this year and it took me 2 days with regular doses of tylenol max strength and a heating pad to get rid of that pain but it was on a weekend so I did not go to the doctor bye monday the pain was gone.  But it felt like someone hit me with a baseball bat across my shoulder blades.-weshar75

                    You may have been a sight, all bent over and taking baby steps, but I could imagine how high you would jump if you won $350,000!

                      Advil, aka, Ibuprofen, aka Motrin,  would be better for you.  I take 800 mg x 2 a day.  It's also fairly cheap if you buy generic. I get 40 for a buck at the dollar store. Others, say they find it for 100 for a buck.

                        My friends wife was playing a number everyday, He didn't know then the day it came out she had a choice between getting tickets

                        or praying. She decided to pray. The number came in that draw. She said the money wasn't meant to be. Maybe she didn't win

                        because she was secretly playing a number and not telling him.

                        Luck be with you!!!

                          Sorry for the pain many of you have experienced.

                          Being one of the most prolific members among us when it comes to asking great lottery questions and polls, I think that LP member 'noise-gate' will eventually cover the following question in some form or fashion, but I'll make an early go of it: If I were ever fortunate to win, I've often thought of which super-power or super-ability would I be willing to give up my billion dollars of jackpot winnings for? Having seen too many people suffer, I think that it would have something to do with the ability to instantly take away someone's severe pain or disease and restore health.

                          In the meantime though, I wish you all well...

                          Legend says that The Craggy One was once asked about the Lottery Circle and the aged Lottery LoreKeeper whispered in his gravelly eloquence,"It is known among our kind that 2 successive draws are in reality the 2 center-points of 2 intersecting circles that share a common radius - a Root Center. This Vesica Piscis is the creative womb for all numbers, the Still Point from which two draws will unite & a new one is born. This "perfect" space is a wormhole through Time(Change). Master its proportions & your numerical predictions will not falter".
