Do you sign up for sweepstakes and/or online contests?

I just signed up for a contest at the local rock radio station's website. I generally don't waste my time but I've been getting lucky in other areas of life (mainly just gambling - ha ha), and so I figured I'd try it out. Do you ever sign up for sweepstakes or contests? And better question yet, have you ever actually WON any of them?

Hey, I always sign up for sweepstakes and contests if I ever get across one, though I have the mentality of thinking that I would never win. But there was this one time where me and a bunch of my friends went to six flags and they had a boat trip giveaway for people to win a boat trip for 4 days and 5 nights on a cruise to any island they had listed, like Hawaii. So after the six flags trip, 4 months later, after totally forgetting about the event, I got a call from the answering machine saying that I won. I was shocked, lol, but after calling some of my friends about it, a couple of them won too! So I called the number that was left on the answering machine about the details for the trip, and i was told that I had to pay the taxes of the cost of the trip, but everything else was free. Since I didn't have any money to spare at the time, thinking everything was free, I didn't go, lol.
