    LOL...I forgot about that thread!

    Wow...it's amazing, it's been a year already!

    I'm a big loser so far...nothing. All I get are extra large's, though. I know they don't win very often, but I don't feel like selling out and going with something smaller just to win.

    I teach grades four and five in a small Christian school in New Brunswick. Every day, well, every day I stop at Tim's, which is like four out of five school days, we have a "Will Miss Craig win at roll up the rim" time. They all chant "win, win, win" and I roll up the rim. So far, suckfulness reigns.

    Well try again means you get another cup of coffee right. No winners here either. Not even a drop.

    I'm 0 for 2 so far. And now I want Timmy's...

    Great story, Tammy: way to get the kids involved! :D I could see this being used to teach kids statistics and ratios... you could do up a chart calculating the narrowing of the odds as you buy more coffee... :)

    Then again, you could just buy some for every kid in the class and up the odds that way... ;)

    LOL...those kids don't NEED coffee! I'd rather use it to teach them statistics and stuff. Good idea!

    Countdown starting today: 0 for 2

    Tammy: Derisa has a great idea there about teaching stats! Do they cover that in the grades you teach? :)

    Sounds more like a finite class to me :p
    Like how it doesn't matter how many cups you get, the next cup always has the same odds as the last one.

    Last night, I went to Tim's with a couple of friends and got a large tea. My friend Chris was right behind me and got a large coffee. HE WON A FRIGGIN' DONUT!! IF HE HAD GONE FIRST, THEN THAT DONUT WOULD HAVE BEEN MINE! MINE, ALL MINE!!!

    0/8 There's a rumor going around that someone in Woodstock won the Sonoma. I will be so mad! I want to win it! I want to use it to pay off my student loans!

    1/10!!! I won a muffin tonight!! :D

    The irony of it all? I just told my students this morning that I was scared to go to Tim's at night, because I didn't want to win without them being there to see it, because they've stuck through Miss Craig through all this. And what happens? I go to Tim's tonight and win. They are not going to be happy campers in the morning [face_plain]

    Hey Tammy, somebody in Riverview won the truck.

    Well, I figured there would be a few trucks in Moncton

    *looks quickly around for DOY to come in raving about how Riverview is NOT part of Moncton* ;)

    I buy...I don't win. My mother buys, she wins. Two doughnuts so far, and she doesn't even like doughnuts.
