Just hope he's protecting a darn good chunk of that money. Wifey may be looking to take him to the cleaners.

BTW, this is not meant as a cynical look towards women or humanity in general. I'm just looking at this from a more realistic point of view.

Good point

    No, you're not jealous.  Opinions are always welcome here.  However, Jack Whittaker (the man to whom you are referring) had a drinking problem.  He was rich before he won PB in West VA.  I don't think Bunky will have any problems, but I agree that keeping a low profile is the best thing to do.  If he was able to drive away in a new SUV before collecting the money, he must have done a little more than call the dealer.  He probably showed the manager the winning ticket unless I missed something in the story and he knew the owner.  I once worked at a car dealership and you wouldn't just let someone drive off in a new car.  I mean, anyone can say "I won the lottery. Give me a new car today." 

    He's been so vocal about his win that I'm surprised he hasn't been on Lottery Post.  We get lots of posters who claim to be the winner of a large jackpot. 

    **Welcome to Lottery Post.**

    My favorite part of the Jack Whittaker story is that he blames all his misfortunes on the lottery. Come on! The dude was given a once in a lifetime oppurtunity and blew it in what may perhaps be the worst way possible.

      stack and guru,

      There was a well written article about winning the lottery in a past issue of Maxim Magazine about winning the lottery. It can be an absolute nightmare for the winners. Winners have been robbed blind through many different ways and families have been torn apart. It's why I don't think that he's being too smart about his winnings. I've always said that if I ever hit the big one, <caps used only for emphasis> I'M GONE! It is the oppurtunity to start a new life that I have been looking for for a long time.

      Besides, see my signature below.

      Basically you're saying if you hit the jackpot, you would handle it differently; yeah you, me and the millions of other people that tore up losing tickets. I've always wondered why the people using their superior intellect to criticize the winner's action, don't use it to understand their odds of winning. When you handed the lottery clerk 2 bucks for 2 tickets, did you really believe you were going to win but when you lose it gives you the right to tell the winner how to spend "your" 2 bucks?

      "I've always said that if I ever hit the big one, <caps used only for emphasis> I'M GONE! It is the oppurtunity to start a new life that I have been looking for for a long time."

      Apparently Bunky isn't going anywhere because it looks like he was already enjoying his life and "his winnings" are just icing on the cake. You don't seem to be enjoying you life as much (you did say you wanted to start a new one). I'm curious though, why do you need $82 million to start a new life?
