Ouch! One more hurt of every months...
Wishing you guys best of being fine. He (handsome Mega) will be right back big soon . You know, our wish is so luxury anyway! Look at people around the world ...
Actually, I am in want , so I'm still feeling sad. I try to pray to forget it for a while .
Couple weeks later we will be like this .... :jump: :jump: :jump:

I feel your pain . . . . . . two misses, two weeks. Oh well - another month or so and we'll all have the fever again.

Hi Lottophene: Thank you for your word....And the luck will knock your door someday! :)

    In a post before the drawing, I predicted the winner would be in Ohio in a suburb of a city, and the store name would have one or more of several words in it, including "stop".

    I only have the bonus ball "22". On a (cringe) quick-pick.

          Or it could be someone from Michigan.....

          MI has Mega. Indiana doesn't.

          Good point. Although I doubt many hoosiers went to a small town at least an hour from the closest Indiana city when there are other Ohio cities closer.

              I haven't seen RJOH post. Maybe he's in shock after winning.

                Money in itself does not buy happiness, but it provides a lot of stepping stones for the educated to grasp it.

                  Based on numerous news conferences, I'm not sure it is limited to the educated.

                    An educated lottery player/winner chooses lump sum. They avoid games like PA Unlucky for Life and the new Lose for Life.

                      All the winner sees is the money.  They realize they can get a larger some today, then receiving a lot of smalled sums that actually add up to a larger sum.    They do not avoid any games.  The fact that the states makes money proves you wrong.  If the state lost money, it would go away.  Lottery players, for the most part, don't even know it is annuity or cash until they try to collect.  They are sheep, standing line to be sheared.  See money advertised, want advertised money.  Basic instinct.  Like sex!  Not until it is over does the average person wonder if it was worth it.  See Sex, want sex. See money, want money.  Basic.

                      Cheers

                        I am pretty sure it's someone from Michigan that won. My hometown is about 10 miles west of Lyons and everyone from the Oh bordering towns goes to Lyons to buy cigarettes. I was shocked when I heard the news, the store where is was bought was where my mom buys hers. Imagine me calling my mom at 9am and screaming for her to check her tickets..lol

                         

                        Congrats to whomever won!Smile

                          Actually an educated player will make that decision when the time comes, and based on their own personal circumstances. However a close-minded player will also opt for the lump sum no matter what the pay out, or circumstance..

                            Education can only help for long term planning, something that Jack, and David Edwards seemed to lack. But at least we now have them as examples to learn from, and to know what NOT to do.
