What makes you think I am not in the demograph ? So being poor is an educational or financial demograph ? 

I'm broke and stupid as hell. Many folks here can attest to the stupid part. 

 

Lottery is targeted to people at or near the poverty level and you've made clear either by accident or intentionally that you arent anymore.  It's not a prey on idiocy, more desperation and then states act willfully ignorant of the number of people they are enabling from a gambling addiction standpoint. 

 

Average person does t know how to invest properly, its no shock a lot of people dont jump into it where as lottery is straight win or lose.  Government has made clear they dont care, have nerve to say money going to schools then cut education budgets leading to teacher strikes. 

 

Fa real, we cool, I jus hate the lottery.  I out $5 to it today because group made valid arguement to at least try once if its that .uch, but I'm out after that.  Could be $2 billion, its principle of the matter at that point.

I HATE very few things. 

I can not stand when someone offers to hold an event...then makes it uncomfortable for no damn reason. 

Going to an event ...for about an hour tonight. I can not wait to leave tonight around 8PM. 

I suggested simply going to a restaurant...shut down. So irritating.

Good Luck.

Hell, even saving works. Many lottery folks can't even figure out how to save a few bucks a month. Investing is an afterthought if you can not even make an effort to save 50 bucks a week. Before folks jump on me... I certainly was in the position of not being able to save. 

 

Training... It hurts short term and it rewards long term. Same for all rewards.  Train to gain the reward.

What does my plan to move back to VA (single) have to do with Huly? ?

 

Wait...Single ? 

ROAD TRIP !!! 

 

Seriously, about pet love. Huly has several dogs and works in that field. Her name is based off of a cat. 

Mostly it was a silly statement. 

 

Wait, where in VA ? I make my rounds up there from time to time. Be in Chesapeake in about a month. 

When I win the lottery...might just visit Try the Beal...buy a ride for more than it is worth...then take him to a Lakers game.

I know who Huly is, we've chatted about pets, and she's posted pics of all of hers in the pet thread. ? 

Up north in the woods. ?

Not really woods in Ashburn for the most part these days.

@Mr. Sinister sounds like a tough cookie, look at you and see where some of that comes from.

 

Yup, army strong (through my pappy, who raised my dad and his brothers and sisters that way, who raised us that way).

 

He's been more forthcoming and proactive about stuff since I told him about my aunt last summer though.  Probably why they spotted the cancer so early

Probably because it's a tax on the mathematically challenged.

Do you go inside when there is lightning? If so, why?

Generally, yes.  I also tend to go inside when it's merely downpouring.  The expected return of my happiness and well-being is greater under a roof during a thunderstorm.  The lottery, on the other hand, is a pit to throw your money into.  Expected return is... poor.

I'm in Tijuana with my new Mexican girlfriend. She is from here. Here for a wedding. She better protect my ass cuz I don't speak Spanish and have no clue where I am. I'm kinda worried about my Lexus in the parking lot but whatever hopefully hotel is secure. 

 

Adventures are cool. I'm still sick but it's mostly a cough and congestion at this point. Have a good weekend my brethren.

But it’s unlikely to hit you, so why are you so afraid. 

 

Im just razzing you anyway. I consistently save into my 401k. Last 3 times I went to Vegas, I think I gambled a total of $50 (and came out ahead, because I’m smart about walking away). Point being, there’s a huge difference between this, spending $2 a few times a year and degenerate lotto players who spend $100 every paycheck “chasing it”

 

People get on their financial high horse too often-prob same people who are always asking that QB to try to go deep and get pissy when all they do is hit their check downs. Yes, it’s generally a tax on the statistically illiterate but I’d say one is a fool NOT to try to win $1B on a $2 bet.

 

Heck even if I spent $2 a week for a year on Powerball that’s an infinitesimal fraction of 1% of my annual income.

home health specialist came by my dad's place last night and instructed us on how to administer his antibiotic via piccline.

 

I swear dude was on that stuff.

Hyped up Asian cat with this weird sort of meth/Hyena/Kawhi Leonard laugh. He was funny just enough to not have me think he spent the morning hacking somebody up in his garage with the Supremes playing in the background, and brewing coffee over in the corner.

Wonder what I'd do with 1.6b dollars. 

 

Still work of course (why not) but maybe something part time. Want to use more time to just travel the world. After coming back from Paris I am definitely interested. We didn't stay at any hotels, we just explored the city and airbnb'd and took trains all over Europe.

It is not fear, but rather prudent precaution that comes (almost) without cost.  In fact, it comes with the added benefit of keeping me dry as well.  If I am in a scenario where it is beneficial for me to go outside (say I am trying to get from point A to point B), then I will indeed make the trek outside as the probability of being hit by lightning is outweighed by the probability of the benefit of getting to point B.

 

Also, the probability of being hit by lightning is fundamentally linked to how much risk you expose yourself to.  The number of people being hit by lightning has fallen dramatically over the decades, despite the booming population, because people have learned that it is smart to go indoors.

Shoot, I'd quit my job and instead follow my hobbies.
