    We do know one thing,someone has bought a $319 million winning ticket from Coulson's News Center,in Albany,New York .This is a mainstay down town news service and convenience store. The news media got on it over the weekend, when the lottery offices was closed.I been looking for a confirmation that seven government office workers did win the Mega Millions jackpot.Congratulations to the winner or winners !!! Cheers

            How do they even know it was this group of people that won it, if they havent come forward yet?

            Seems very specific that they know it was a group of 7 people from this business.

            So much for anynimity.

            Congrats to them though...great to see fellow IT folk winning some love! (even though me and 3 other comrades also *tried* to have our hand in the jar too Sad

                The facts are: They won, and millions of ticket holders lost. I get to sit amongst more folks that lost then the few that won. Consider me a lucky loser :)

                I care zilch for a group win...thats seven more problems, I'll take one problem and solve it myself :)

                As a member of I can win it alone, I stand firm in the beleif that one person can make sensible decisions.

                I am curious if "we the people" in essence regulate govtment thru our voting, which one of us here voted for these ridiculous high taxes? I am sure I was asleep at the wheel on that voting day.....or I was out buying a lottery ticket :)

                  That's an easy one.

                  Anyone who voted for the Democrats voted for ridiculously high taxes.

                  Not that there's anything necessarily wrong with that.

                  Some people actually want ridiculously high taxes and it's their right to vote for that.

                  And it's the nature of the Democrats to give it to them.

                    Dems may historically vote for higher taxes but in the "scheme" of things....

                      Excellent graphic so that people can visually see what politicians, no matter which "side," end up forming an amalgamation of [history has shown us that several have changed "party sides" during their lifetime, afterall!]. It is possible that, initially, the politician has 'some idea' of what to do if elected; yet if you later research, the majority end up "conforming," which means that results are a culmination of essentially no help to the citizens of that country.  It took me decades to understand this, unfortunately.  It is why many adults don't vote anymore; they realize that "far-away" government hasn't actually helped them that much through the centuries.

                      That is why many folks have come to the conclusion that, though we shouldn't eliminate FEDERAL "governing", it should probably be halved ... including the Federal Department of the Internal Revenue Service.

                        Congratulations to them winning the jackpot. I didn't know why the Mega Millions Jackpot rise from $312 to $319 million?

                          I was hoping this jackpot rolls to a record $418 million but oh well..! lately the pb and mm jackpot has only been hitting in New York, California and Ohio, are these the lucky states? or does people gamble more in these states? I dont even remember the last time it was hit in Wisconsin. <-- Bad luck state.

                            More ticket sales equal more winners and more losers, simple as that.

                            As far as Wisconsin being a bad luck state, the only thing I can figure is that the fumes from all the cheese (primarily the Limburger) put the whole state into kind of a catatonic malaise.

                            And that's never a good thing.
