    I have a few shekels invested for this evening. If I win, I get you some nice new life preservers. Maybe something to go with it too. ;)

    If that's your way of saying "hey, how about me", I hear ya. Maybe a nice new golf cart to putter around the neighborhood.

    I invested $10. I got 5 quick picks with the megaplier on each.
    If I win I will buy a custom yacht and sell everything else I own.
    I'll hire a few old crusty Merchant Marine types for me crew.
    Then I'll cruise around off the coast of Africa and be a pirate.

    But I thought Florida has a Lottery? We used to drive to a little down just across the border when I lived in Alabama to get tickets.

    Liberalism Is The Philosophy Of The Stupid

    To Achieve Ordered Liberty You Must Have Moral Order As Well

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    His philosophy aside, some guy on DU is hardly the first to complain about how the lottery is handled. Many Floridians have said that they would rather have a "draw to a winner" Lotto than what we have now. Actually, we have our own version of super lotto, they call it Lotto, but our Mega-Money game played twice a week typically has larger jackpots than some small state lottos.

    Anyway, many people would like to see the lotto draw to a winner instead of building to huge jackpots.

    A total aside: How do they find these idiots who are waiting in long lines to buy lottery tickets? I have never had to wait more than the usual couple of people ahead of me at Mohammed's Market.

    I just shake my head when I see the lines waiting to purchase these tickets. Yesterday the grocery store was packed with last minute ticket purchases. All I could think of was that the winning tickets were probably sold months ago.

    I'm happy for the winners. I hope it brings joy to them and their families.
