Did you know... The chances of you dying on the way to get your lottery tickets is greater than your chances of winning?

That does it. From now on if I want a lottery ticket I will go to the store for some other reason. Once safely at the store I will then decide I want a lottery ticket.

I believe it. I have literally ~ no joke! ~ escaped death 6 or 7 times in my adulthood, but never won the lottery.

I buy a ticket every few weeks, but I never even check it until weeks later. I know I'm not going to win - don't know why I spend the money. Hmm.

I knew a fella once on his way to cash in his lottery ticket and while looking down to re-check his numbers ran a red light and ended up going to heaven instead.

There is a report constantly in the news here about a man named Shakespeare who won the lottery with a lot of millions and then, dissapeared. Recently found him under a concrete slab in a house.Sad,sad. Perhaps the money brought him death....

I've never bought a lottery ticket. I wonder if that makes my life expectancy go up.
