I won't be working Thursday

I have $20 worth of Powerball Lottery tickets. I'm sure I'm going to win the $500M jackpot. I don't play the lottery very often, but when it shows up on the news as a big jackpot, I can't help myself. I get to mentally spend the money for a day or two. Who's playing and how much you putting up?

I'll snag a few tix. A few dollars isn't gonna kill me and "ya gotta be in it to win it," right?

I just saw an article...up to $550 Million.

I'd like to think that I'd continue to lead a pretty normal life...without the job of course.

After the one lump sum ($350M) after 1 day vacation you would go back to your office and still want to put you hands into people's mouth?

BTW please pay your fair share

I'm in it for $2.

I've mentally dreamt that I was meant to win to lottery since I was a kid. I'm no dream expert, but I hope that improves my odds.

I bought 1 ticket also. I know I am limiting my odds but 1 in 176 million isn't that much worse than 1 in 17.6 million.

I read today that you are more likely to be born with six fingers on each hand than win this powerball. It must suck to be born with six fingers on each hand....you can't give the middle finger to anyone....and no-one is going to get it if you flip them two birds...on one hand.


By the way...when I win I am taking all of you out for dinner...just for putting up with me.

Welcome to the Machine...... (I'm still a clown) this from Ponch (second time) who is supposed to be a moderator on this site....but of course if you disagree with him this is the sort of thing he does. It is simply amazing that anyone would give a guy who is so obviously childish and spiteful a position of authority.
