What's ol' Larry saying now? LOL

In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

    I live a couple of hours from Ashville....have actually bought lottery tickets there before.  Good for him.  I always say I'll play it safe and contact an attorney & accountant before claiming the prize but who am I fooling???!!!

    I'd be at the door first thing in the morning waiting for them to open!!!!  I'd be terrified of holding on to a tiny piece of paper worth THAT much money.  I'd just have to deal with the fallout later. 

    One day it will be nice to tell all of the lottery cynics that look....I did win!!!  It is possible!!!

    Congrats to them!!!!

      People just don't learn.

      There they are telling the whole world about their money and plans for it. So naive and trusting. I almost feel sorry for them. My guess is the Griffin's affable disposition will disappear as soon as the throng of parasites descend upon them. Three words: Dee Dee Moore.

      "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                  Since I shave my head just about every other day. If I won I would purchase a very good long haired wig and follow your advice with the Ray Charles sunglasses and baseball hat...I'd even consider a fake rubber nose for the photo session...

                        Congratulations!  Pity they cannot claim anonymously. Still with these money they can find a private place.

                          A man wins $141M and gets only $47M?? Dont get me wrong, that 47 number is still more loot than what 95% of of US citizens have but still.

                          I wish they change the way they advertise the jackpots and just say something like "Fridays megamillions jack pot is $47M"

                          Maybe I need a cold beer ha ha ha

                              If you look .... that is $47 Million out of the CASH option.

                              The $141 Million is the Anuity.

                              Why do people make this so complicated.

                              They DO advertise the Cash Value !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
