Nope. I hate this tax on the poor. Those who can least afford it go out and spend their childrens lunch money thinking they are going to strike it rich while their kids wonder when they will eat a real meal again.

I am going to buy one ticket. I only do that when it's a crazy big one. But my thinking is, my chances with one ticket are the same as the chances for every other ticket. Someone has to eventually win, maybe several someones. So why not?

The only way to guarantee that you won't win, is not to purchase a ticket.  Fever?  Absolutely not... but have I thought about what I'd do with the winnings??  I have.

Nope - I read many many years ago that when you purchase lottery tickets you are telling the universe you are incable of making yourself a success and that for every ticket you buy, you eliminate one more possibility of being successful and add one more doubt to your self esteem.
