    The thing about the lottery is:The more money the ticket will promise you,the more of a probability your going to lose.Plus you you have to pick a scratch off with more boxes,therefore increasing your probability to win.Lastly,if your going to a casino,bring a NT friend,either intp or entj with you,they're usually good with numbers...

    The worst thing you can do is have an early win, for then you just keep on chasing the win.

    It's like heroin - you just keep on chasing that first careless rapture.

    Lol, I just won 4 + 7 from two tickets :P It was better than what could be expected reasonably, but I wanted nearly hundred thousand

    I've thought of what the playing gives to a person. It provides a stimulus for some mind-play, perhaps useful, perhaps not. In my mind, I thought what it would be to have the money.. so it worked as a psychological exercise.

    Still .. uhh.. 11?

    I know, right! Seems like such a mockery but it's still a win.

    No. I try to avoid notoriously addictive vices. My book habit is bad enough.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    And when we are taught to read, we are never told we won't be able to stop.
