    Re: Your Greatest Ambition

    I went with achieving Wealth, since my son is already grown, though I still hope to have a daughter one day *tick tock*

    upon achieving wealth it will enable so many other things including philanthropy and than dying broke

    P.S. This is because poker is the only game for people who can do statistics.

    Re: Your Greatest Ambition

    How can world peace be an ambition? I can want world peace but it's not something I can be ambitious about. It would take the 'ambitions' of multiple individuals to achieve world peace. Anyways I guess my greatest ambition would be to be insanely rich by the time I'm 40. I'm already doing a lot of the other things so they're not that great anymore. I mean once you already start doing it it's not the same chase feeling anymore. Right?

    If they can also count a 6-deck shoe. Holding all the info in your memory takes a lot of practice, as I'm learning. It would be such a bonus if people were to say their hands out loud so I could use my auditory memory (which is like yours with the perfect recall thing).

    Maybe I should partner up with a blind guy?

    Neal Boortz called a lottery "a tax on stupid people."

    The one thing I like about them is that they are completely voluntary. Nobody is forced to pay a tax via a lottery.

    Re: Your Greatest Ambition

    All this talk about the lottery and my husband mentioned that the Mega was at 325 million when he called today, I took it as a sign and bought a couple









    EDIT: 204.6 cash option


    I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.

    Re: Your Greatest Ambition

    Just to find a career I enjoy, earn enough money to live comfortably and spend my life doing things that make me happy. I don't want kids, but finding a partner I loved enough to want to be with them a long time would be nice too.

    My auntie went the complete opposite way when she won the lottery; from being generous with the little bit of money she had before, to grasping at every penny she'd won. She got her door kicked in and got the option of paying 50 pounds to have it repaired immediately, or waiting a month til the council could do it for free. Guess which option she picked.

    Yeah, that's miserly. I think some people get funny about money as they get on in years too. Some are just always odd.

    Well, the only way a pound note gets out of my purse is if mounts a daring escape of it's volition, so, I think I'm probably the latter.
