          According to the quantum theory everything is interconnected and that implies that the handling that I do - making

          coffee or tea for example - and the way I do it, can influence the outcoming of a lottery drawing.

          So I have direct influence on the numbers the will be drawn.

          If I make everything the right way - I will win the jackpot. But what is the right way?

          That drives me nuts.

              "The winner has a contract with the states to pay the annual prize payment, no matter what happens to the securities."

               

              That's a red flag in my book. I don't like the government's track record with handling money and I don't have complete faith in their guarantees as of late. Especially with a chief executive as unstable as the one we have now and state legislatures similarly comprised. When they declare a national or state emergency and suspend all obligations I don't intend to be under their thumb voluntarily.

              I'll take the cash.

              You are so correct ridge, and I'd even go so far to say I think this country is to the point where it is almost like some South American banana republic like Argentina under Juan and Evita Peron; you know, the kind where anybody with any sense will be trying as hard as they can to get their money out of the country before it gets confiscated?  With me, it wouldn't be just the cash option, nor just the trust.  It'd be foreign LLC inside a foreign trust, and eventually into a foreign bank account. There aren't many countries left that I'd feel half assed good about my money being there, but there are a handfull still.

              Be sassy and be happy.

                good luck to everyone for tonights drawing .. i plan on having a meet and greet for those daring enough to wear their lotterypost bikini's {in the tri-state area} [w/todd hosting] should i win

                but a side of caution to those that just LOVE LOVE LOVE ANNUITY payments .. i spoke with someone in the finances and while this option was good for those playing lotteries in the early 80s .. not so the case now .. the states and the gov will be your bed-mates for life [you don't want that, they both have the gonorrhea and  chlamydia [respectively]] it will appear that you have the ultimate payoff but with the the yearly INCREASES of taxes, you will end up netting LESS than the seemingly low CASH OPTION payouts .. another thing, 1% of annuity winners actually can live and are content with that measly yearly payout ... but the funny thing is when you are THAT RICH some thing called common sense kicks in and you kinda want your money NOW to do fun things with [imagine, getting $1mil a year knowing that you have $189million out there that you can't touch] - what happens is that the remaining 99% end up borrowing against their future payouts - that's a third person in your sheets [this one has syphilis] .. so ... net net .. pound for pound .. dollar for dollar ... TAKE THE CASH PAYOUT - take a million and chop it up and invest where there's a promised 4% growth ...

                just my two cents .. can you tell i don't trust the government No No

                Good luck to you also.  'preciate  the thought of coming to your victory party, but I'm one that tends to respect people's privacy, and that goes double for celebs.  You know, " do unto others as you would have them do unto you."  I even walked out of a cosy little four table place in the Quarter in New Orleans back in '78 because the only other patrons in the place were Mick and Bianca Jagger; and at the time, I was as big a fan as you could get.

                Finally, I share your distrust of the gobbermint in a big way.  Corruption I can deal with.  It's evil I'm scared of.

                Be sassy and be happy.

                        First off, huge congrats to whichever Indianan has the winning jackpot ticket.  God has blessed you, and I pray that He continue to bless and protect you through the tribulations originating in many places from all directions.  May He guide you to one of the very few honest lawyers and financial consultants in existence.  Take care of yourself FIRST.

                        Now, as for Florida, I suspect with all the retirees and a border state (Alabama) with no lottery, that there is a good possibility that they have more lottery sales than any other lottery in the country.  FWIW, I also know some dumba$$es here in my state that still go play powerball in Florida because they have no state income tax, not realizing that they still will have to put that 6% under the golden dome in the A-T-L anyway.  Tourists play it a lot, and I have read that there is always quite a contingent from Columbia, Panama, etc. that make a trip to visit relatives about the same time a big jackpot builds up in Mega or Powerball.  Plus, I think Fla is now about 3rd highest population of any state now. 

                        Has anyone ever noticed that the Florida lotto hardly ever gets over about 25 mil or so before there is a winner.  Sure sign that people play heck out of it.  I see both Cali and NY getting up over 50 mil a lot.

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                         

                        5

                              Yeah, they speak German over there, believe it or not.
