Short thoughts on the Lotto

I am not a gambler. I am not into negative expectation propositions. I have absolutely zero problem with people who do gamble. That being said my wife wanted to play for this nearly a Billion dollar drawing.

If I win, you will find out who I am really quickly. Finances are the only thing keeping me from being open about who I am and what I believe.

I love the people who post “God let me prove the lottery wouldn’t change me.” I can tell you it would change me! Hopefully it would be for the better! I will be charitable. I will not tithe or give any to churches. I will give to people and organizations helping people and mankind.

    Should you win, you might want to think about getting a new phone number, LOL. Some other tips.

    My uncle was once asked, “What would you do if you won the lottery?” He replied, “I will give half to my ex-wife.” His friend said, “I didn’t know you had an ex-wife.” He said. “I don’t. I haven’t won the lottery yet.”

    A local news station did an interesting thing here: they asked a bunch of people what they would do if they won and most gave typical answers. They will quit their job, buy a huge house, new car, etc.
    they also asked homeless people the same question and their answers were very different. Most want to use the money to end homelessness and help their friends and family in need.
    You never know how much the piece was edited to make it look like the homeless were more charitable but it was interesting nonetheless.
    Glad you’re back!

        I’d like to read a complete anatomy of the lottery – who’s behind it, where does the money go, etc. When I lived in California, the lottery was on the ballot. Proponents were touting that lottery money would go to fund California schools which, at the time, were #2 in the nation. The Lottery passed, and California schools – now in the bottom 10 – are wondering where their operating budget will come from.

        Yeah, that information should be open to all people to see freely.

        At the risk of sounding paranoid, I suspect there’s some serious corruption there if one had the knowledge, the wherewithall, and the connections to pursue it.
