    Wow, why am I not surprised that another person who won goes and runs their mouth to everybody they possibly know. 72 favorite nieces? Come on now, I bet you before you won the Mega Millions this guy most likely had a percentage of 72 favorite nieces before that especially since he collects social security benefits and everybody knows that social security barely pays enough to pay your bills with. I guess the reason that I'm commenting on this story is to just give everybody some friendly advice: If/when you win a large amount of money on the Mega Millions, please do not tell anybody other than your spouse if you have one because when you have a lot of money you will see that you have friends that you never knew even existed until they find out you won big money. Another thing, claim your prize anonymously so that you don't have people that knew you from the past either trying to be your new best friend or coming after you because you have money. Just thought that this may help with anybody that's thinking of claiming a prize with their name on it. Just my ideas and suggestions coming from somebody with plenty of wisdom, but do as you please because ignorance is bliss and I can't force another person nor will I attempt to force somebody to take my advice. Good day!

      No, diamondpalace, this story about the winner actually "showed" the opposite reality -- that folks DO WIN who have nobody else beliving in their dream/obsession (s)!!!

      This is great news for the many loners, broken, and/or abandoned lottery players of the world.

      Thinking of...

      Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

        Nice story.  Makes you think if he HAD the support of his mate, could he have won the BIG ONE?

        Bad Chi is the worst thing to have around you.  Once you make a commitment to another person IT's ALL THE WAY BABE!  I wonder if this partner browbeats him in other ways??

          I actually would not be celebrating if I missed $12 million by one number. You need to go the rest of your life knowing how close you were to the jackpot that you missed. $250,000 is good if you are playing for that, not if you are going for $12 million though.
