So much more than Random Thoughts

Recommended Posts

one of the guys who split the biggest lottery in history a couple of days ago ($288 million will be his take - before taxes) lives here in my area. He's rather young (maybe 20's?) and I'm wondering how screwed up he's going to get with that huge windfall. Seems like people who win the lotteries always wind up alcoholics or in bankruptcy or even in jail, because they can't deal with the sharks and the demons.

Edit: on the other hand, maybe it's just a rumor, since i just did a search for the Arizona winner and as of 3 hours ago CNN says the person still hasn't come forward... maybe that guy on Facebook photoshopped or something. :crazy:

:grin: yeah, I read that, too. I never noticed before that they were in numerical order, but indeed, the 6 Quickpiks I bought Wednesday night are, as well.

And I have to say that out of all 36 numbers on those 6 Quickpiks, there were exactly 3 that were right. :badcomp:

I've been missing my SF time because of new medication I'm taking. Makes me really drowsy, confused, unbalanced, nauseated & a host of other junk. It sucks but doctor is easing me onto the meds & supposedly my body will adapt. I've been easing but no adaptation yet. :thumbsdown:

It is very possible for me to wrap my mind around this sort of thing... because this sort of thing has been happening for decades in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New Orleans. It's just that when it's blacks and latinos getting killed, nobody gives a damn.

My car is buried in almost 2 feet of snow at my work.....A co-worker with a four wheel drive got me home safe....complete whiteout with the winds and no snowplow in sight!....I think it came through once and it's been snowing one inch per hour.....Wow!

intriguing. Since women typically hate having to ask their husbands to do stuff, it's good to know they live for the doing. :laughing: Now I won't hesitate to mention when my car needs oil-changing. I'd go with the snow thing, if I lived where it snows.

hehe my nephew just made the drive from San Diego to his new home in Alaska, taking pictures along the route. About the time he hit Canada, the snow was so deep and vast there was nothing visible except... white... snow. It just looks flat cold to me. And cold is not my friend. :shocked2:
