My point was that ppl. that are smart w/$ don't carry much on their person,

they don't need to, they have good credit everywhere.

I rarely have more than $20 on me.  If I won the lottery, I would still do the same.

Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars,

because it is his natural characteristic,

so the artist works.

    Not me angel face, Jack would have been BETTER off starting a gambling enterprise......... 

    He could have made his grand-daughter earn a pay check for filling out play slips instead of drugging her to death with cash that she didn't have to earn........

    I agree. Idle hands.

            I don't have more than $100 unless I'm on the way to use it, (race track) but I like to keep some at home,

            when the juice goes out cash is king.

            May not be a problem for you, but before I lived here I never seen the power go out so often.

              Yea power issues have been common here the last several years. After the last fiasco, I focused on getting emergency supplies like a camping stove, little camping pots, even an outdoor coffee pot, small propane tanks, water storage, solar charger for cell phone, etc. Money is useless here (too many people) since everyone is on the roads looking for some place open (and living near the Pentagon we are all supposed to be ready to "shelter in place.") I could not even get onto the main road last time and out of my neighborhood (had to turn around and make coffee from the hot sink water...was not too bad).

                Won't see me crying for  him, he brought this upon himself.

                Moral of the story is, 'Don't be so darn boastful and careless after winning, it will always come back to bite you in the ass!'

                boo hoo, i was praying to win to pay for life saving transplants for my mother and little brother who were poisoned by government toxic waste dumps of waste yellow cake uranium and carbon tetrachloride. they died screaming in pain and this sob spent hois windfall on sex, gambling and drugs. you make your bed and you have to sleep in it. there is another lottery, maybe he can win that too and fritter it away. losers seek to spend money, winners use it to accomplish something. who needs more stuff. possessions are chains and you can't take them with you. imagine all the good that could have been done but that opportunity is lost. it was his money but don't ask me to think about how sad he is to have won the lottery. he shouldn't have bought a ticket, it ruined him. give me his opportunity, i won't waste it.Rant

                    Incidentally, the excact tenth anniversary of Whittaker's hapless Xmas lotto win falls on this coming Tuesday. When we play the Mega which falls on this day, we shall have Whittaker in our thoughts. However, the tenth anniversary of Whittaker's lotto win for Powerball falls on the following day, Boxing day, on Wednesday, the 26th.

                      Long story is right, and Ive read his story before........

                      It was worth reading though even if just to learn that he doesn't mind been a whore for those who choose to write about him. Funny that he will charge $1500. for an interview and NOT consider himself a "whore" when he is getting paid.... I suppose in that case he has promoted himself to prostitute......What?

                        Really? Who is boxing on the 26th?

                          Sorry to hear. Could be somewhat adventurous though?

                            I think its been about 10 years since anyone wrecked into a power poll bad enough to cause an outage.
