Lottery Tip

Hi all,

"Which day of the week should you buy a ticket for the Saturday lottery?"

Well, without noticing I have known the answer to this question for years and years, when people asked me why I don't want to play in the lottery. My answer was constantly the same: "I am relieved everytime I have NOT won in the lottery. Because the day I will win the jackpot, I will never ever again want to enter a plane. If I was lucky enough to win in the lottery, I would certainly be lucky enough to be on a plane that will crash !!!" And, statistically, I was holding the obvious answer to the above question: the answer to it is .....Friday, of course. If you buy it earlier than Friday your chance of winning the lottery jackpot the following Saturday is lower than your chance of being run over by a car before you are able to claim your prize!!! Hehehe...

It is a fact that your chance of winning the jackpot ( in the UK ) is 1 in 14,000,000 , while your chance of being run over by a car over a period of 2 days is about 1 in 10,000,000. Of course you could buy a ticket on a Monday and stay at home the whole of the week, I guess this would reduce your chance of being run over by a car, hmmmmm...

Reminds me of the joke I was told when I was younger:

- your chance is 1 in 20,000,000 there is a bomb on board of the plane you are sitting in....
- your chance is 1 in 220,000,000 there are 2 bombs on board of the plane you are sitting in...
Conclusion: Don't take any risks, take your own bomb with you...

Think about it ( and have a nice day )

A couple makes a deal that whoever dies first will come back and inform the other of the afterlife. Their biggest fear is that there is no heaven. After a long life, the husband is the first to go, and true to his word, he makes contact. "Ethel Ö Ethel Ö!" "Is that you, Fred?" "Yes, Iíve come back like we agreed." "Whatís it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning and have sex. I have breakfast, followed by sex. I bathe in the sun and then have sex twice. I have lunch, then more sex pretty much all afternoon. After supper, I have sex until late at night. The next day it starts over again." "Oh, Fred you surely must be in heaven." "Well, not exactly Ö Iím a rabbit in Nebraska."
