Well, my Powerball ticket for tonight was a bust, so I guess I'll have to plan on going to work on Tuesday........

Meowsigh.

Hopefully one of these days your ticket will win.

Homeless kitties all over the country would rejoice.....LOL.
Not likely. But, the odds if you buy a ticket are still better than if you do not play.

True, the last time I played, I played in a pool, no one there won either.

I only played after the bills and such were paid, and only $2.00, though not on powerball then.

Though if I had a time machine, I could send someone the winning numbers, but no one knows how to do that.

Dreaming is fun and free.

Right now I'm waiting for My rent bill, as the meters were read back around the 18th, but then so is everyone else in the park, misery loves company.

Hmm, since our lottery started in Nov '94 I've had quite a few nice wins :-) In fact the proof was occasionally posted on these boards. For an annual spend of £156 (£3 per week) it would take xxxx years without a win to start showing a loss :-)

The only way to guarantee winning at a lottery is to be the organiser.

Well, in the case of the Powerball game, the winning numbers are picked by randomly drawn balls. So computer programming skills or hacking would not help ya.

But that is a moot point when the end result is determined by random chance.

True, but when using a "fixed" set of numbers, it's not truly random.

Speaking of lottery.
http://www.ozy.com/flashback/the-grand-comedy-of-chinas-biggest-bank-heist/65062
Winning the lottery may not be such good luck after all. That’s what happened to Ren Xiaofeng when he bought tickets with borrowed money, winning enough to pay it all back. You can guess what happens next, right? Going for that winning ticket proved addictive and, unfortunately for Ren, the “borrowed” money came from a bank vault that he was responsible for keeping safe.
So begins the tale of China’s biggest-ever bank heist.

Well now I need a new tire, there goes $48.00 delivered, mounting and balancing $16.00 extra or $64.00 total.

If I needed a rim, like this one, that would run $48.60 delivered, I'd be in a real pickle then, and since I have not gotten My rent bill, yet, and I have not bought all My food for the month, so I might be in a pickle now, I just don't know yet.

I've got a friend here who can set Me up with a temp tire and rim, so no worries there, I just have to wait until He gets home.

"£$%^&U*I)_+ Vic - not at all nice.
I hope you are OK (apart from impending damage to your finances that is)
The rim should be OK - I've had far worse blow-outs than that and the rim has been unscathed because the remnants of the tyre has ended up between the rim and the road surface.

Thanks Rob, yeah I'm alright, I just need to find out the rent, so I can see about replacing the tire and make sure none of the other 3 are bad or even under inflated, as to the cause, that I don't know, I could have hit a nail or something, but that does not matter now.

Now I know the rent, so I get to order the tire, and I even have enough for a rim, if I needed to buy one or felt like doing so. My projection for the rent was $15.90 higher than reality, the rent bill is $435.46. And I just heard thunder, later.

Looks pretty low miles. Did you check to see if you had any warranty?
