    One of the things I do at work is sell lottery tickets. We have our regulars who buy pretty much the same numbers every day for regular Lotto and the Big Four.

    And then there are the irregulars: they only play when a jackpot is huge, either Powerball or Megamillions. Half of them have never played before and have NO clue how it's done. Some of them bet big bucks on computer picks: I am talking about someone who will blow $100 on tickets.

    Someone will eventually win. Best advice? Immediately hire a terrific tax attorney.

    As for myself, I don't feel like giving the state more money than I have to until/unless the state gives me health insurance via Obamacare, which our Teahadist governor has refused to do. Choke on it, sir.
