OK, no change over here

Yeah, I had said I would make some changes here over the weekend. But I didn't like what I saw when all was said and done.

I wanted to use a new skin to make things look a bit more interesting. I had it ready to go but noticed one fatal flaw. My archives were gone. I loaded up the page and nothing was there except the template. I think I will take a close look at both skins to see how I may be able to monkey it to work. How hard can programming be?

I see my friend the Wig has been taking shots at lottery ticket buyers over the past week. Yeah, I bought tickets for the last two drawings. The Wig was a fool not to. The payout for the lump sum was $164 million dollars (hey you guys stop doing the Dr. Evil right now!). According to the ticket I have, the chance of winning the jackpot is 1 in 146,107,962. That is +EV. The payout dictates you should buy a ticket.

Furthermore, he points out the a nickel, yeah, a WHOLE NICKEL, disappears out of the dollar while 95 cents goes back into the WI economy. That nickel probably goes to the lottery administators to cover costs over all the states, but I can't say that for sure. I would think he would do the research before stating it evaporates.

So the Wig will bust out on people trying to hit it big while he wastes money on some big ghost in his yard illuminating the neighborhood. Yeah, higher energy bills are always +EV. Why do I expect it to be some pansy smiling ghost too?

ahem. I bought lottery tickets. I should've thrown the money down on the horses instead. Or over tipped a Hooters waitress.

Hence, "And wouldn't it be ironic if James Wigderson won with his fistful of lottery tickets he and his wife purchased after ridiculing us and our wonderful players."
