It would only be sod's law, if having purchased the three sets, you then went and won all three - highly unlikely - not impossible - but unlikely. Enjoy what you have. BB

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away

At one point I had three DVD players all won in Xmas raffles within days of each other.

I guess he’s just unlucky. 

 

If you knew how to manage to win raffles you’d be laughing.

Unlucky? I wouldn't say that. As I said previously, yesterday, the other day or the udder day, whenever it was, I have won nothing, so winning three of same product is better than nothing. I suppose Rob could of kept one DVD player and sold the other two and whatever money he makes, he could buy something else with it that he wants. Then that's like getting soemthing for free.
