more people that play. Lower the odds.

I'm not "against" playing, people can do what they like! But i gave up playing the Lottery years ago when I realized that the games were being manipulated so that they paid off less and less frequently (I usually played "scratch-offs" with a few "Powerball" tickets here and there). Nowadays I couldn't play if I wanted to because of finances, so I'm glad I weaned myself previously.

That being said, I HOPE that some worthy GLPer wins it, and pays for a free year for everyone here! I'd love to hear that in one of those interviews where the people always seem to say "I'm gonna buy me a house, and my Mom a house, and get a new car, and take my family on vacation." Wouldn't it be GREAT to hear "I'm going to sponsor everyone at GLP for a year's membership!!"??

Re: Any GLP'ers Not playing the powerball
Imagine the state of texas covered 1 foot deep in quarters.

One of the quarters is painted green.

you can go anywhere you want in the entire state and pick up a quarter. If you find the green one, you win!

Only one catch...it costs you a buck everytime you pick one up.

Yea...I won't be playing that game.

BUT...if I did:

It's a behavior issue...the people that play the lottery generally don't pay cash for cars or houses, they don't have a retirement plan, other than playing the lottery...in other words they are poor because they make poor decisions like playing the lottery.

Horseshit.

Those of us who do the math -- who understand that lotteries are nothing but a Tax on Stupidity! -- we are the ones with solid assets and zero debts...

... because we do not spend impulsively, we save, we invest, we manage our money.

That said, I do not give a damn if other people play the lottery. It gives them amusement.

Me? I can buy a pound of beans with that two dollars.

Do that a few times, make a habit of it, make a lifestyle of it... and you can become quite, quite financially secure.

The only "budget" I am on is to ask myself if any given expenditure is wise or prudent.
