Yeah.  I've been searching my pockets, books I was reading just prior to that draw, dredging up vague, half-remembered quickpics I bought on a whim and wondering precisely when I did it.

Lots of folks in NM doing that I'd guess.

It's about number behavior.

    It's probably an illegal who won and the news hasn't gotten to them or they are afraid of coming forward. If they are originally from Northern Mexico it could be dangerous to return home with everyone knowing that they are now rich.

      Might well be that.  Those mountain folks can be persuasive.

          I'm surprised you haven't won one already.  I seem to recall the words, " . . . biding my time.  Waiting for the right jackpot, getting my personal affairs in order first... but anytime I want to do it..."

          Or am I thinking of someone else?
