    Start with the day you was born,month,date,if the numbers go up that high. Lets see that's three. Use 25 that's my age that I want to be. That's four. Lucky Seven. and today's date. Send me half of the check.

      So just what would you do with all that money?

      I'd give up on trying to find a paid job and just be a reserve. I'd probably still put in 40+ hours a week, but hopefully it'd be easier to get the job.

      Lotteries don't pay enough for this, but if I had the money I'd buy a major league baseball team and move it to Portland. We need some professional athletes that can stay out of jail.

        Mitzi, it won't get you out of the rat race, it will just put you in a higher tax bracket and a different kind of rat race.

          Ok, I'll settle for a job my husband doesn't have to travel in. In the next two weeks, he will be home 6 days. [Frown]

              I am going to start buying a ticket a week, starting tomorrow! I'm just at a point right now where I don't have the passion for my job that I did. If I could afford to get out, I would.

                6 days in 2 weeks just isn't enough. Our son is sick and I carry the physical and emotional burden of that when he is gone. Actually, it's harder on him when he's gone. He worries about me having to do it all and our son being sick. I know God never gives us modre then we can handle but I sure wish he'd hand me another plate!

                  You could take out a loan for 10k and buy 10,000 lottery tix. I think I heard about some guy who did that a few years ago. Unfortunately, for him, he did not recoup his payout.

                    Statistically, there's not much difference between buying 1 ticket and 10,000 tickets for the average Powerball lottery. This is why the man who purchased 10,000 tickets did not win--his overall odds of winning increased less than 1%. There is a near-infinite number of permutations--10,000 is barely scratching the surface.

                    Need me to show you the math? PM me...everyone would fall asleep on their desks if I worked it out here.

                      in 1999 I set up a station lottery syndicate for 17 officers at Esher (then METROPOLITAN now Surrey)

                      at first it was a total chore getting the cash from members, but slowly slowly, I convinced more and more members to pay by bank standing order, until after 1 year all 17 were finally paying by S/O, MAGIC!

                      every 4 weeks the members get a "syndicate bulletun" stating the winning numbers, if we won, on who's numbers and how much divided by 17
                      1 year later half the members complained that the syndicate was not entering the Wednesday draw too, so I allowed them to double their subs

                      now I have 10 members paying

                          Right now, with the tension that's going on within the family over settling mom's estate, i think "money IS the root of all evil."

                          i'm also starting to believe that saying "be careful what you wish for."

                          (doesnt mean i wont still buy lottery tickets [Wink] )

                            Lottery winnings...that's easy enough...pay off all debts, see to it my mom is set for life, help out other family members the best I can and TRAVEL!!! I guess it would mean quitting my job, but I'd volunteer my time when I was home.

                              sounds good auntysuz, sounds real good [Wink]

                              my brother-in-law announced one time:
                              "if I ever won the lottery, the FIRST THING I would do is share out all the money, with my brothers and sisters and make sure we all shared it out equally"

                              me thinking simultaneously "yeah suuuuuuuuure you would m8, suuure you would"

                              anyway, a year or so later he came around to our place again and I was filling out my lottery tickets, he says "hey what would you do if you ever won the lottery chiefy?"

                              I instantly replied - looking him straight in the eye "why the same as you would, share it out immediately with my brothers and sisters equally" [Eek!] he couldn't stop himself from smiling

                              a smile that said "yeah .....R I H G T!"
