Spent my $2... I know I know - I have the same probability of getting mauled by a polar bear and a brown bear on the same day...

But what if I win ;)

Anybody else playin'

On the way in...a guy was walking in with his lotto portfolio.

In the last 10 years - Lotto expenditures $3 - including $2 tonight...winnings.. $0 :D

Only hedge I have against the fiscal cliff

I rarely play, but at nearly 500 million, I couldn't resist. Just bought 5 chances. Only need one to win though! I figure if I take the lump sum, after taxes, I might be able to squeak ino a new Star :)

Not that I'll win, but I'll buy a ticket for sure. If I don't win, doesn't it just go to schools ersum****?

I bought 5 chances today. Like all the others said at almost $500 million why not.

I pledge right now if I win the first person that PM's me can have my 86' That's right you can have it.

The only reason I would give it away is to make room in the garage. Wait a minute, I should be able to build a bigger garage.

Office pool, 150 chances: So does that mean I have to just get mauled by one bear tomorrow? How about a Husky Malamute, I seem to get mauled by it everyday.

I bought one. Dude said he's sold $5k worth of tickets. Shift just started....

yep, will probably buy one or a few ... although I have never had that "lucky" streak! We used to have an office pool of 15-20 people that pitched in $5 or $10 when it got above $20m ... we hit a few 3 & 4 numbers for a couple hundred bucks that we just dumped back in for the next drawing, never anything substantial enough to split it out to the individuals.

I need to convince my mother in law to buy a ticket, she wins at everything including door prizes at various events she attends (but I seriously doubt the Baptist in her would ever allow her to buy one)

I buy one when I get gas. even if I don't win, I fully support the idea that some lucky sap will not have to work again the rest of his life.

Sometimes I consider it, but by the time I wait for all the morons buying every other lottery ticket, checking their loser tickets, debating about which sale cigarettes to buy, I wonder why I just didn't pay at the pump like I usually do. After I leave shaking my head, I realize that I forgot to get the dang ticket anyway.:confused:

I use to play the Lotto every week until they went to 2X a week drawings several years ago. Since then I only play when the pot gets BIG.

Remember - You can't Win if you don't play and eventually someone is going to win. Just hope it's me!!! :D

If I win, I would opt for an older Star. You know, the ones people are "trading down for" (without all the new electronic stuff). :D

I bought my first ticket last night. There was only one beat up, rusted, smoking pickup truck in the parking lot when I pulled up. The guy goes in ahead of me and spent at least 5 minutes using the winnings from him scratch ticket (and some more cash) to buy several power ball tickets, some more scratch tickets, and a pack of cigs.
I just felt so trashy after I bought my ticket.:D

Guess I should have bought a ticket.
