    When my aunt was here visiting I took her straight to the store to buy tickets. In Florida and California it always seems like the winner is a tourist or an illegal alien, so I figured it was a 50/50 chance she would win. Curses, foiled again.

    Not all states participate in Mega Millions just as not all states participate in Powerball. NJ has both.

    There has to be some way "we (and by that I mean you " could start a lotto pool here on the board.

    The Marxist lottery, 'eh? I've heard it all now.

    I hope that one DUer realizes they made the argument for why the lottery shouldn't be legal talking about false hope and all. lol.


    I meant to buy a ticket and didn't. I don't usually buy a whole lot of tickets because I get aggravated at never winning. One time, I was like "Gambling's stupid, can I have another scratch off?" lol. Now, scratch offs are fun. I'm actually moving my fingers then.

    There were no winners at the drawing earlier this week.

    Dave Ramsey, who is hardly a commie, also thinks that lotteries are morally wrong and calls them a tax on the poor (Family Guy calls them a tax on stupid people).


    I don't agree with him, but I get the point he's making-poor people dream of an easy way out of poverty, and few ever win the lottery.
