    true, and i'm going to call three the mighty trifecta, and when it happens i'm going to bundle up the whole damn mish-mash and send it off to HarperCollins coupled with extremely high expectations. i don't see the problem, heck, i'd have three pre-publish sales in hand. i'm hoping for an enormous advance.

    You can [slightly] increase your odds by purchasing a ticket.

    I buy a ticket when I think about it. It helps education, or it supposed to, in my area. I figure $3 to help a kid through school with the slightest of possibilities at making all my dreams come true before I die is worth it.

    @joenuclear and @jdrocks

    I play the lotto once in a while too.
    Even though the odds are better I will get hit by lightning TWICE than win.
    But as said, if I have a ticket I have a chance.:clap:rofl

    Well, actually read about the odds of the lightning strike and lotto winning, why I went with the two times.
    couple hundred million to one, add a third time and the odds do get longer than winning the lottery.

    I don't have to rely on the lottery. My neighbor doesn't recycle his empty beer cans.

    there ya go, sounds entrepreneurial.

    i met a guy in the Yukon who was out walking around town at sunrise picking up cans and bottles with a 10cent deposit each. he knew i was from the States and didn't mind sharing what he made from his pastime on an annual basis, and it was an astonishingly big number. it's has to be the only upside to living in a town full of drunks who throw all their beer cans and bottles on the ground.
