I think I beat the lottery odds today!!!

So I googled a local business today to get their phone number so I can call them and get my clothes washer fixed, and when I google them their "Google street view" picture comes up first with a vehicle blocking the view. The vehicle turns out to be me in my work vehicle from this summer driving past the business----WHAT ARE THE ODDS??

After reading on so many media outlets the pitfalls that a person would face if they won................I am not buying a ticket. I do not want all those problems. I have said all along and contacted the lottery several times. Put the prize at 500 million. Sell your tickets to whatever number you need to break even and make the prize a million dollars.....for 500 people.

My point is that if there is a limited number of tickets and that total number isn't that high, buying more than 1 ticket can make sense. Buying more than 1 ticket when the odds are 1 in 126,000,000 does not improve your chances. So buying a bunch of tickets is a waste of money. People see the big jackpot number and think buying a lot of tickets helps. It really doesn't.
And "dud" was a typo.

Pretty clever calling me Dud. I would've never thought of that. You are the one that implied buying more than one ticket would be more worth while if only 100 tickets were sold. The smiley strongly implies I was joking around. Lighten up a bit. So, on the snarky front, are you the pot, or the kettle?

Can't believe they actually needed to put up a sign that says cash only at local store that sells powerball. Buying more than 1 ticket does not improve your odds enough to begin with. If there were only 100 tickets sold, then sure, buying more than 1 makes some sense. But buying more than 1 in the powerball is like being in a walking race from Milwaukee to Madison and getting a 1 inch head start. Guess it is why we have a saying...the lottery is a tax on people really bad at math.
