I play a $2 lottery ticket twice a week, always the same numbers. Hit it for $1500 two years ago. Still playing with house money. I likes them ponies and betting on the triple crown races. I actually do fairly well here. Early names: Secret Circle, Optimizer and one horse I really like: Union Rags. Time will tell.

Did lots of gambling in my youth when I didn't have protection. These days it's a deadly fools bet.

Oh dammit, I forgot. I took out a title loan on my car. They gave me $5000 and I gave them this piece of paper that said title. End of story, right? Well, now my car is gone. I should have known that was a lot of money for one piece of paper.

I'm pretty sure that means if you borrow $5000 and pay it back in year you'll pay $10,5811.50. I'm no good at math but it sounds good to me. Are they open today? I was gonna take my grandad's Purple Heart from WWII to Jayhawk Pawn so maybe I could hit both places in the same trip.

Western Sky is the greatest! The typical APR for a $5000 loan is only 116.23%. I'd like to see the Gambino family top that. Payday loans are the greatest thing to ever happen to me. I've never seen people so eager to loan me money.

Roe, do you need to get over that hump? Western Sky can loan shark you up to five grand and put you behind the eight ball forever.

Bought one Powerball ticket and one lottery ticket. Got one additional lottery ticket because I found one on the ground that was good for a free one.

I won $100 at the Million Dollar Elm Osage Casino, I won $85 at the Tonkawa Casino, I won $143 at the Kickapoo Casino, I won $85 at the Cherokee Hard Rock Casino, I won $170 at Downstream Casino, and I won $655 at the Lucky Star Cheyenne-Arapaho casino. I win in Oklahoma....not in Kansas. This is about gambling and not verbal buffoonery right?

Matthew Obrakta has the best answer. Easy to tell he's not a commenter on LJW.

Is that basketball pool thing gambling? Because that is more like a skill thing and not flipping a coin. Oh wait, some of those I did flip a coin. Nevermind.
