I'd wait about 5 or 6 years, just to make sure I had the best lawyers on my side.

some  states  only  give  you  a  year  to  collect  the  money ;

the  reason  some  people  don't  come  forward  is  they  know  millions  will  be  watching  them  and  asking  questions ....and  mabey  there  is  no  one  left  in  their  lives  that  they  care  about;

people  need  a  reason  to  No Pity! live .......

I Agree! everyone needs a reason to live and some persons only positive moment all week long is playing the lottery and waiting on results

    In that case, take a small amount for play money and donate the rest of it. That's what I would do if I were him.

      I don't follow basketball, very seldom but in my blog you will read about a player named Kirilenko who left a 63 million dollar NBA deal...To go to his native country russia and play...Well we can say that to each his own, but that wouldn't have been my decision, i wouldn't have gone to my native country and play, i would have stayed right here in the States....I don't know why people are leaving this high rich wins for something less...They must know what they are doing...

      Money isn't always the most important thing. When all is said and done, the question one must ask themselves is if they're happy.

       

      Having said that, let's try this. Say you were offered $3 million more per year to work your job in Pakistan. Would you take it?

        I would, only because it would make me happy. For me, it would be more than winning the jackpot. I would be earning big bucks, learning and living in a different culture at the same time.

            Waiting on lottery results being the only positive moment in your week sounds more to me like a reason for dying than a reason for living.I hope my numbers will come up as much as the next guy, but I'd be pretty miserable if hoping for something with odds like that was the highlight of my week.

              Has he gone mad?  Is he on crack -- or what?  Gee, I wonder if he were, say, 40 or 50, and a widower -- would he take the money?  I guess one will never know.  Poor fella!

              face  it  once   the  sex  life  is  gone  its  all  downhill   from  there:

              well   he  could   afford  a  lifetime   of   viagria ;

                please consider me and others like myself and my husband we have been married 31 years and have others, not fincially but in other means.  While working 2 jobs apiece we can only make ends meet.  My wish is to be mortgage free and be able to take one vacation with the man of my dream (my husband).

                There are so many  people of good standards would love just to have a break in life. GOD bless you and I am so sorry to hear of your lost.
