    It was a Thursday in August 2012

    when I took my dog out and a seagull crapped on my head. I won $50. Since then I haven't won anything.

    along roads. Mainly just to lift spirits during the tough winter times. Sadly, most people with all of the money tend to look down on others for some reason or another.
