After he spends the first $300,000 I think he'll begin to get an idea.

lol... Yea. I don't think that guy spent too much time in college... lol... What did he say ? "He plans to seek advice from people who know about money " ... lol....But man, its one hell of an opportunity to spend $1 or $5 with the possibility to get $258 + Mil in return... You'll never find that ratio in stocks or the business world... its ridiculous.

I read somewhere at a relatively early age that the odds of winning the lottery are only slightly higher than FINDING a winning lottery ticket laying on the ground.

That was about all I needed to know. I occasionally toss a buck or two into the community lottery pot at work when the jackpot is huge, though...what can it hurt?

A couple rich folks won it a few years ago (wall street type) and it pissed me off. Happened like twice within as many years.

I'm the same way. If it's a really huge jackpot it gets my attention and I might be willing to waste a buck or two that I would have spent on a candy bar or bag of chips. Hell, someone wins sooner or later and you might as well take a shot.

But I don't play on a regular basis.
