Ford or Shakespeare.  Shakespeare or Ford.  Tough choice, eh.

I'll go for Shakespeare on this one:  "Though I am not naturally honest, I am so sometimes by chance."

    Ford would probably feel cheated even if he bought the ticket for Shakespeare. A person can only hope to buy a lottery jackpot winning ticket once in a life time and buying it for someone else probably feel like having your one lucky time stolen. Most people avoid buying lottery tickets for others because they don't want to gamble that their one lucky time will come up when they're buying a ticket that's not their own.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      where   are   you   reading  this  I  never   saw   no   mention   of   200,000.00

      2.  I  f  the   one   person  got   you   17 million  and  before  he  bought  the   ticket   he   was  just   average  its  no   wonder   he  got   sued;

      I f  it   was   the   other  way   around  it  would  not   be  the   same  Mr/ Ford   would   have   shared  the  money,  ..................!!!!!!!!!1

      Youve clearly got access to a computer and call yourself computerhead so theres a decent chance you can find it yourself  youve got the tools  its just a question of whether or not you can use them

        If a friend of mine won and gave me 200K I'd take it and be happy. If someone other than I has to win, let it be a friend and not someone I don't know. I'm sure if I were in a desperate situation and my friend had won (and not lost all of the money) they would help me. Of course that 200K becomes 160K or thereabouts after double taxation. Also it would be a reward in itself if I helped someone else win, even if I got nothing. How much the purchaser helped depends on whether it was QP or manual selection and by which person. QP can involve microsecond-level timing of the exact moment the purchaser said "5 QuickPicks please." and the clerk hit the button on the machine. If it's manual selection then "I could just have played them myelf later, with the same exact result". It is also possible that Mr. Ford bought extra tickets and only gave the losing ones to Shakespeare after seeing the results? "Yeah I bought you 5 quick picks, yours didn't win, but one of my 5 quick picks DID!"

              It's all pretty comical............once they both pay off these high powered attorney's they'll be left with Z E R O...........hmmmmm, how much is that??? zilch, nada, $000000.00 !!!!

              I guess there's no chance that either of these guys has enough sense to suggest splitting the money amongst themselves rather than giving it to thier 2 needy attorney's.

              Greed will get you nuthin' but bad karma.

                  Say"No", when someone ask you to buy lottery tickets for them.

                  I agree. Actually, I did buy a $2 Powerball QP for my neighbor once, but I made sure to get a playslip and play the same numbers that were on her QP just in case.ApproveRazz

                    What's the purpose of playing the same numbers for yourself? Guaranteeing that you're playing for half the jackpot or less? Making sure she's only playing for half the jackpot or less?

                      The only person who has every bought lottery tickets for me is my mother and that is because she is heading to the store when I'm not. She goes out and about a lot, so she offers to buy them for me. However, I give her the money to buy the tickets and she understands that this is my hobbie so if I were to win, then it would be my money. (Although, she knows that I would take care of her.) I know that I would never ask anyone else to buy me tickets. No one. I either buy them or my mom does. That's it.
