I check my e-mail headers Sunday mornings before work and if I see "Exciting news about you lottery ticket" I leave it until I get home so that I can spend the day hoping LOL.

I used to know a lad who always bought two tickets, both with the same numbers. His theory was that most jackpot winners had to share their winnings with another lucky winner with the same numbers, so they shared half of the jackpot each. If he had two tickets, he'd get two thirds of the jackpot instead. He insisted that the chances of winning were so slim already that the extra expense would, one day, be worth it.

I expect you all heard the one about the Jewish guy praying in the Synagogue:
He says, 'Please God, once again this week I didn't win the lottery. Can you please find it in your heart for me to win next week?'
A voice comes down from heaven saying, 'Meet me halfway! Buy a bl**dy ticket.'
Hope this doesn't break Landlordzone religious stereotyping rules, but I thought even Jeffrey might enjoy that one.
