Do you all think more people would buy tickets if it was 5 separate 100 million dollar drawings, or more would buy if it's left the way it is now.
I rarely buy lottery tickets but I had such a good day a couple days ago I couldn't resist. And usually if I do buy lottery tickets, it's when the prize is a smaller amount. I'm sure I'd be pretty darned happy with $10 million. For me, it doesn't have to be half a billion.

Apparently our ammo shortage continues. Didn't win this time, but hey, you can't win if you don't play right?

When i was a teenager, i worked with this kid whose dad was the city's electrical inspector. One day the dad got a call to the local ER; the doctor had him reverse the wiring in a skill saw so they could plug it in and "bump it" to dislodge it from a carpenter's pelvis.

I later had to drive the kid i worked with to the hospital from the shop after he fed his thumb into a table saw with the sheet of plastic he was cutting.

The most annoying is land before time. I can't watch it. My girl knows it, if she puts it on I'm gone.

This is EXACTLY why I'm very afraid of my power saw. I don't even know why I bought it. I used it twice, got scared I didn't know what I was doing and it's been put away ever since. I ought to sell it for some extra $$.

Love my power and air tools, they make building a breeze, my guess is that I have at least 20 tools with power cords and Batteries and at least 8 with air compressor fittings, still have all digits attached (Knock on wood). I cant imagine the guys building my 3500 Sq ft house back in 1815, must have been a real bear.

You used to be half afraid of guns, right? Knowledge from a good teacher is priceless...
