Turning Souls

I’m growing an idea about people having already decided as to how they want to go when they die. I was of the idea that most (all) people waited until the end to desperatly reach out for Heaven. But I’m seeing that there are “some” people acting with evil intent, and trying in ernest to turn others away from seeking heaven (or God even).

   There is a definate hirarchy of “demons”. One vile/evil person, followed closely by a henchman, followed loosly by a looser – one without any real character.

   The demon is commited, he’s not turning back to good. The henchmen are invested, looking for the pay-off, they could back-out, but really can’t. They greed the pay-off.

   The looser? His way out? He needs to be let go. He’s caught in the wake of a huge ship, too weak to crest the waves. He’s doomed, unless the power of prayer can reach across the divide, and free him from the vortex of evil. ?  idunno

The grass is always greener…

   This is true, as when one looks​ over the fence they also look across the grass on the other side – seeing only the leaves of grass. When one looks down upon their own grass, they look along the leaves, seeing deep into the dirt and roots and thatch…

   Looking across another’s life, only the surface is noted. It all looks green and good and easy. All problems, on the surface, seem easy to solve.

   But when we into our own lives, our own problems, we see the tangled mess below the surface. Not so easy to solve.

Programming challenge

 Could I prove this with a Python project? It seams easy and fun, I have YEARS of winning number data that I could play random picks off of, but how do I calculate any winning picks? How could I know what the payouts were for any one winning ticket? A winner doesn’t get a fixed amount – they get a cut of the pot.
14 Days to Broke
What does all this mean to you? Well, say you’re a happy-go-lucky guy with $1,000 burning a hole in your pocket. You decide to “invest” this money in lottery tickets, and keep on reinvesting the proceeds of your bets to buy even more lottery tickets.How long do you think you could keep this game rolling? Let’s play:If you buy $1,000 worth of $1 lottery tickets on Day 1, then statistically speaking, the average lottery payout of 60% means you’ll have $600 left to spend on Day 2.Spend that $600 on Day 2, and by Day 3, you’re down to $360.

Keep going, and by Day 14, you will have (on average) just $0.78 left jingling in your pocket.

In other words, two weeks of playing the lottery has left you too broke to afford a single lottery ticket. You’ve gambled away nearly every cent you started with.
