Tags: Scratchcard
Posted on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 by "T".
Michael Engfors, age 61, had been tagged as homeless and roamed the streets for 6 years when he then decided to purchase the Eternal Splendour scratchcard that would change his life forever. Michael was born and raised in Aspen. After losing his business and his home, and after his divorce, Michael had been terribly down in the dumps.

Now this is a great story and especially heartwarming at this time of year. I hope that this guy can put the money to good use and really get back onto his feet and reconnect with his family

They did a test on a local television network one day. They let a man beg on the streets to calculate what the average "income" would be in one month. And.. they concluded that the average amount of 4000 euros is possible.

Most junkies/alcoholics beg money just enough to buy their drinks/drugs. Then they become high and the next morning they start all over. So most of them will unlikely "earn" 4000 a month.

Wake up, put on your old stinky clothes, don't wash your hair. Take a train to a city where no one knows you. Beg the whole day. Go home, play some freerolls and GET RICH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar Dollar

I don't think many people deliberately choose to be homeless and to me having to beg on the streets sounds horrific but I suppose when you are in that situation your sense of pride soon disappears.
There were stories in the UK of "professional" beggars and I can easily understand that....the minimum wage in the UK is around £7($10) which I expect can be very achievable in rich areas.

I also witnessed something similar like the two ladies above me mentioned that some beggars made big money while just begging. It's sick that they can make more money than just someone who actually have a real job...

yeah... inspired so many people to invest their dollaros in piece of paper you cannot even use to wipe your a55 off, since the texture of lottery ticket paper is too rough... come on- why can't they print lottery tickets on toilet paper- this way at least they would be useful for something...

So me one day sitting next to Negreanu, Selbst, Mercier and others thats gonna be my 500 000$ . But i can make one Worship to all the MOBSTERS that play this game and try hard. Respect ya all and have fun.
