The lottery is for suckers. So this week you can call me Senor Sucker.

Given the odds against winning, it's stupid to go out and dump all your money into a shiatload of tickets.  If you are going to play, buy a single ticket.  Don't try to increase your chances with more tickets because it doesn't make a significant difference.  You're shooting for the statistical outlier, aka, a farking miracle.

I want to win just so I can answer that question the reporter always asks.  "What are you going to do with the money?"  The answer, "buy my very own senator."

"And lots of hookers and blow."

/bought one ticket
//I don't expect to win a damn thing

My luck with these types of things really sucks. If I bet on a coin flip, and bet on both heads and tails, the coin would land and stand up on its edge just to spite me.

/yes, I bought one ticket anyway
//each of the winning numbers will probably be just one higher from the numbers I have

I just bought ~175,000,000 tickets. I boxed the board on the lottery.

So, if I am the sole winner, I make tons of profit. And if I have 3-way split, I lose money.

Ahhhh, it's almost like the old days of arbitrage.

2xhelix: wxboy: If through some shocking twist nobody hits it on Saturday, it will almost certainly go over $1b for Wednesday. Heck, it could easily make it to $750m before Saturday.

If I won that much, I'd make a public announcement that I'd donate half of it to the state, if the governor, both senators and every house rep agreed to resign and stay away from politics for 10 years.


The state will take half regardless.

2xhelix: naughtyrev: Just make sure you get it in legally binding docs, and payable in installments over the 10 years.

I'd make sure my lawyers make them sign in goat blood.  I'd also earmark some of money for projects that they're vehemently against.


Be careful when people start writing or signing contracts in goal fluids.  Trust me on this: goat semen just disappears when it dries.
