I remember like it was yesterday...

Actually I remember it like it was right now...

It was saturday february 23rd 2008...

I went to the store about a mile down the street with $10...

I bought 5 of the brand new $2 scratch tickets from the mass. lottery...

And one of them was $25,000 dollars!

Not to f###en bad for a $10 bet huh?!

But the damn state took out (stole back) $7,500 in taxes!

Which left me with $17,500 cleared...

I could have drove off into the sunset without telling anyone...

But i'm not like that (greedy) at all and so I split it with my mother and brother...

And that way we each got around $5,800...

The odds of winning the jackpot on that scratch ticket was around 280,000 to 1

I am speaking of the life of a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children; who has undertaken to cherish it and do it no damage, not because he is duty-bound, but because he loves the world and loves his children… - Wendell Berry, 1971

I searched high and low on the internet for an image of the $2 scratch ticket I won the jackpot on but for some reason I couldnt find any because the mass. lottery must be worried someone will copy it and try to cash it in?!

Theres instant winners and theres instant karma good and bad...

What comes around goes around...

For awhile everyone was asking me to buy them scratch tickets...

About three months later my brother gave me $40 and said...

"Pick us out some scratch tickets and i'll split em with ya"...

So I drove to another store near here and bought us 8 $5 scratch tickets...

And one of them was $10,000!

We split it with our mother...

About an hour ago (4 am) I drove to the local 7-11 store and bought 10 $2 scratch tickets and I won $526!

And that happened about an hour after my work money was deposited into the atm (*-*)

60 Finnish Marks.
Was at the Turku train station,
back in a long gone millennium,
when this was still a sovereign
nation.

Glorious day, it was.
Those 60 FMK bought me a small
but nice bag of sunshine when I
got back home to DryTown.
Plus a mug of coffee on the train.

I didnt and still dont buy them a lot...

Maybe I spend around 30 or 40 a month on them...

But the $$$ opportunity is there and its impossible for me not to buy some...

Especially after winning $25,000 on a $2 scratch ticket...

As I said the odds were around 280,000 tickets to 1 to win the jackpot on that scratch ticket...

And I nailed it!

I mean seriously...

How many ways is there for me to get (relatively) wealthy?

Workings never gonna do it thats for damn sure...

I dont plan on robbing any banks and getting caught and rotting in jail...

Theres inheritance money but I could die or become an old man before that ever happens...

Which leaves the casino and the state lottery...

So how can I not buy any and try to win something?

Any idea what the exchange rate is for a Finnish and American dollar?

6 old Finnish Marks = 1 €uro
= U.S. $1.28

They said there wouldn't be any inflation when
we went to the €uro, but most things that cost
1FMK in the old, sovereign days, were all of a sudden
1 €uro...go figure. 600%..?

In Florida, I used to make a lot of money at the racetrack. That was the only gig I ever had any luck with.

I won $1k once but I don't buy them much. I'll buy 2 $1 tickets and give one to the clerk at the store where I worked. I'd sure love to see one of them win big, they do struggle on min wage.

People always say "If you don't buy them you can't win"
I'd reply "If you don't buy them you can't lose" chuckle.gif

Not so much on a scratch ticket, but back in the late 80's when I was at the university and totally out of money I won almost 3 000 Finnish Marks on my lottery numbers. That was a great day! beercheer.gif That's about €500, but a lot of money in those days. In this day too 13.gif

A guy I know delivers mail...

A pretty good paying union job...

And he said on christmas time lots of people leave him tips...

I've never heard of anyone leaving the mail man/woman tips?!

All they do is deliver f###en bills! (*-*)

But anyways,he said some people gave him scratch tickets...

And one of them was a $1,000 winner!

And go figure,the guy who gave him the winning ticket never won anything large before on scratch tickets for himself...

But he ends up buying someone else a big winner...

I'll split 50/50 with someone,but i'll never give anyone a scratch ticket...

Cuz I know damn well whats gonna happen...

It'll end up being a million dollar winner or something!
