I do not understand Sam. 

$2 bucks back from what? 

How did I do with what?  

What do those numbers mean?  

I just cannot read minds.  I cannot even read between the lines here and figure out what you are talking about.

its the same as Las Vegas...the vast majority pay-in but don't get paid out. Getting a small amount back is not a win but they count it as such and get away with it too. The hope of winning is a false one as most winners cannot believe they have won that's how far fetched it is. You cannot play lotto or gamble to win but only hope of winning which is slanted, tainted and carrot-ed against you really winning. Despite all warnings, common sense and caveats, the desperation, beguilement and guaranteed loss will and does take place. People will actually program themselves to do something they shouldn't. Think: courtrooms,  prisons, and hospitals where the hard lessons are learned. Lotto doesn't teach a hard lesson and that is why it goes on......Its actually cruel. NOTE: when the lottos first got started, there were many winners. However the lotto's share of the winnings made it not profitable for them. When they upped the odds, it was in their favor to make and keep more not the players.

It appears those lottery peeps are completely unaware of the birthdates of my family. Someone there needs to get their 'south end' kicked!

You gonna have to claim that on your taxes Sam Shueh ? It may put you into a whole new tax bracket huh? Not retiring anytime soon and love what I do, can balance it with vacation travel done creatively. Our job has changes daily so it does not get boring or feel like a grind. Yet. You thinking about it Sam ? Hope you have hobbies or a honey doo list when you climb off the real estate treadmill.
