Just bought my first Power Ball ticket ever
Normally, not into that kind of stuff. And, I have horrible luck - never win anything. But, they had a raffle at work (they do it every few months), and one person's name was drawn out of like 100 - and I won. Not much - $50.00, but like I said, I never win anything. So, I used that to buy one ticket, the rest I'll add to our savings. =) Wish me luck! haha

Not me, well I'd like to win, but if I won I'd pay off my parents house for them, buy a nice house for us, new vehicle for me and for hubby, college for my 3 kids would be taken care off, a nice shopping spree, and then be smart with the rest.

I have to not get jealous, its in whoevers destiny to win. Its in their natal chart since they were born.

its about the dream, 20-30mil is not enough to live out the dream only enough to try and get away, and most people can't get away. it's like poker odds, more money means higher value for risk, people buy tons of tickets on these ones cuz they are worth more statistically.

but yeah i mean there are lots of people with a few million bucks but this is about the dream. world is turning to hell, money isn't what it seems anyway, thats why people buy, because they dont believe in money they believe in the forces they pray too.

Having 20 million is not enough so people dont bother parting with one or two dollars?

how does that equate?

The answer is people are RULED BY THE MEDIA , period !
