Thought for the day

The British National Lottery has been running for -- what? -- 10 years now. Do you think some cunt could invent a vending machine for these tickets so I don't have to waste seven minutes of my life queuing behind a gaggle of no-hopers at the Co-op, all clamouring for their pointless tickets and scratchcards, when all I want to buy is a couple of breadsticks and a fucking banana?

Yes, Pickled Olives is right, it is the same everywhere. I avoid our local newsagent on Wednesday and Friday evenings because it's full of the buggers.

I think the reason they haven't put these sorts of machines out there is the risk of lawsuits. Someone could easily claim that they didn't get what they were looking for and therefore missed the chance to win the millions. By having a clerk sell tickets, they can answer questions and explain the way each game works to customers. However, I prefer places that have a specific LOTTO/Cigarettes only line so I can avoid the crazy regular buyers.

did you ever win?
I have never won anything when it comes to lucky games. (anything that involves a twisted probability)

Again, up with the laughs....you make miserable existence hilarious!!! I buy a lottery ticket so seldom that I usually find them in an old purse years later after they have expired. I just am not inot the lottery dealie.

Karen made some good points, I've noticed that some stores in Cananda have different aisles and check-outs for lottery tickets...tht sort of helps.

I esecially love it when I'm trying to catch public transit and the lottery peopel are holding up the line...and shit there goes my bus while I stand and wait to buy a newspaper...

I had no idea how bad this problem was ... and not just in the UK. It's terrible, really. Yet again, those of who don't want to join in (in this case, plying the lottery) are made to suffer because of those who do.

Other examples:
Smoking.
Having children.

Oh, this is a fun game!
