In my opinion, there is just one simple way to win the lottery. I'll tell you that below.
In the meantime, here's some suggestions that ABC News has come up with. Maybe they'll help you net that $500+million dollar Mega Millions jackpot.
Here are his tips for buying tickets:
Pick your own numbers. Don’t leave it up to the machine. Experts advise against playing Quick Picks, the phrase describing the number the computer picks for you when you don’t use your own.
Do your homework. Go online and make sure the set or sets of numbers you play have never come up before.
Stick with your strategy. You have to learn what number to play and how often to play. Commit to your numbers and stick to your strategy.
Avoid lottery fever. When jackpots get this high, people tend to get lottery fever and spend a lot more than they normally would or can afford. Don’t go crazy; the odds are still the same no matter how much you spend.
So, what's my sure fire way to win the lottery? I bet you thought I was going to say "Don't play."
Are you kidding me? The only way to win it, is to be in it. I (seriously) sugguest you sell your house, car, clothes, electronics, first born children, all the food in your cupboard, your blood, plasma and even donate your hair to charity for the tax write off. Seriously.
The Mega Millions will hit a estimated record $476 million for Friday night's drawing. Other than being an unimaginable number, I'm sure that total is sending a lot of people into a frenzy, thinking about what they might do with it.
Some might say that's too much money for one person to win. Me. I think it's a good start. I think I could easly do some good and go ape-crazy with the spending.
Here's the Top 3 Extravagant Things I would buy with the money, given the opportunity.
A house that surrounds the house, that would house the gigantic dog house that I would build for my dog.

Does this mean you can double butter up your movie theater popcorn? Nope.
A new study says popcorn is healthier than previously believed. Experts knew it was rich in fiber and low in calories, but it turns out it's full of antioxidants, too.
By simulating the body's breakdown of the food, researchers have found that it's got almost twice the healthy polyphenols found in an average fruit. The chemicals fight unhealthy free radicals and may also battle heart disease.
"Popcorn may be the perfect snack food," says the study's lead researcher. "It's the only snack that is 100% unprocessed whole grain." Fruits have an average of about 160mg of polyphenols, while two tablespoons of popcorn kernels can host up to 300mg.
A few caveats: Fruits are packed with vitamins and minerals that popcorn lacks; a lot of popcorn's polyphenols lie in the kernel's hull, so be sure to eat that part; and microwave and movie popcorn can contain a lot of "nasty stuff" you don't want in your body, experts note.
To stay healthy, experts say stick to stove-popped corn and go easy on the butter.
I assume that means the stuff that they cook at the movie theater is not included in the healthy category.
This morning, we were talking about a woman from Niagara Falls, who is disabled and in a wheelchair. She won a contest from an adventure company that helps people with disabilities compete in extreme sports.
I'm not shocked that a person with a disability is bungee jumping. Good for her.
I'm not shocked that she bungee jumps in a wheelchair. Looks like fun.
I'm shocked in the way that the people hoist her up and seemingly throw her over the rail of the bridge. It just seems really awkward. Don't you think?
Some sources today have said that Green Bay may be interested in acquiring Tim Tebow from the Denver. With the loss of Matt Flynn, the Packers must be looking for a backup quarterback and now that Peyton Manning is taking over for the Broncos, Tebow is out of a job.
So, let's look at the pros and cons of adding the controversial and notable quarterback to the roster:
- The sideline bench will be blessed.
- The chances of Vince Lombardi earning Sainthood may get better.
- We already have a St. Vince as a fan.
- He'll probably be a cheap purchase after we pass the collection plate around.
- It's very hard to Lambeau Leap while "Tebowing"
- Media overexposure of Tebowing.
- We'll have to hear and witness Tebowing ad nauseum.
- After reading this blog, I am sick of the term Tebowing.
- Tebowing, Tebowing, Tebowing, Tebowing and Tebowing
I guess that says it all. Good luck in your future elsewhere Tim.
Oh wait. That's just my stomach, because were talking about food so much in the morning.
That story about mysterious rumblings that are taking place in Clintonville has my mind stirring. I hate to say it, but in the news I've con across stories like these and unfortunately they don't always find resolution. Whether it's a low rumble, a humming noise, stray voltage, or a call needs to be placed to Ghostbusters, there often isn't enough imperical evidence to determine what is going on. That's bad news for folks in Clintonville that have been up for over 24 hours now because of something going bump in the night.
Being a person that watches movie trends, I do love the efforts of Rottentomatoes.com. It's a website that marries dozens of critics reviews into a single scale of 0-100%. 100% being a perfect movie.
A Hard Day's Night, The Godfather and Rear Window are examples of movies that rank 100%
Eddie Murphy's new movie "A Thousand Words" that opened over the weekend, earned a perfect 0%. That's an impressive feat in itself, because to earn 0% that means all the dozens of top critics that reviewed the film all agreed that Eddie Murphy's flick was garbage.
It now joins the illustrious crowd of other flicks that earned a 0% rating including: Strange Wilderness, Witless Protection, Balistic: Ecks vs Sever and even beats Eddie Murphy'sDaddy Day Camp from 2007, which checks in a 1%.
