1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Actually, I've seen it before. A lot of the very poor play the lottery, but it seems to be scratch offs or something similar.


    Well, she already broke the most important rule of winning the lottery - don't announce it right away and go see a lawyer and probably a financial adviser.

    I give her 16 months before she files for bankruptcy and her children are taken away from her by Child Protective Services.

    The poor are poor for a reason.


    Oliver is a dumb cunt. Everybody's known the lottery is a scam for the last two thousand years. If you don't know it's a scam then fuck you, you're a goddamn retard and deserve to be taken advantage of. As if you need to watch a privileged asshole pontificate about it to learn something as basic as "you will not win the lottery." Fucking piece of shit. He's worse than Bill Maher.

    No, the first rule of winning the lottery is "You will not win the lottery." it's like the Running Man, even the people they claim won the Running Man were just photoshopped and they were all killed anyway.

    It was about where the money from the lottery actually goes not about odds.

    Oh, well that makes it ok then. He's still a dumb cunt. There's a reason he fled England (or Australia, or whatever shithole he's originally from) to come to America. LOWER TAXES. Same reason the Stones, the Beatles, Bowie and Rod Stewart fled that godforsaken shithole.

    EDIT - and everybody knows where lottery money goes. If you win it goes to meth, hookers, and greedy relatives. If you're the state it goes in your pockets so you can continue your life as a public servant buying meth, hookers, and paying off relatives you've molested.


    In Vegas (or AC) you're paying for the ambiance and the "free" drinks and the sexy waitresses. At least if you're playing table games. Go look at the people playing the slots and you'll see the true dregs of human society.


    You're not a goddamn moron.

    So far that has been true… although my great uncle won the lottery 6 or 7 years ago. A little less than $10M I believe. He's getting old… hopefully he remembers me. :p

    He has almost undoubtedly already spent it all on hookers and meth.

    It was about how lotteries are advertised to be for children and education but instead of continuing to fund education from the general fund and adding on to that with lottery money states just take away all funding except lottery money and so schools remain underfunded.

    So like I said, it goes to meth, hookers, and paying off relatives they've molested.

    And the idea that American schools are "underfunded" is as serious as Bozo the Clown. Take that shit to DU where it belongs.

    "I provided part of that $2. I would like a proportionate cut of the jackpot."

    If the state payed the proportion cut of the jackpot that each tax payer paid it would probably be less than $2.

    Statements that begin like this are sadly often far more wrong than they should be.

    Once my grandparents retired to Vegas, my grandmother loved to play the slots.
