Good Luck All Cheers

Every single state around California (except Nevada) plays Powerball.  How come I can't play Powerball?!   Disapprove

I'm really startin' to feel left out here.  Confused

Maybe I should drive (8 hours) to Arizona and play a few... hundred.   Big Smile

Maybe if no one wins on Wednesday I'll actually do it.

    UGH! My dog ate my fortune from my fortune cookie which said "To Lotto or not. That is the question." I was going to use the numbers from the back, of which I remember 38, which I was going to use as the PB and a few of the others I think were in it, but not all. I would have won some money instead of none because of my hesitation!

      Bout to win this 100 million dollars after taxes. That would get me and my family straight for life.SmileWink

      C'mon be realistic...$100 Million is barely enough for one person. Big Smile  (At least that's what the "Lottery Curse" would have you believe....I mean after you buy that $20 Million mansion and a vacation home for another $10 million....then develop a $20,000 a week drug habit...and the new "wife" takes half in the divorce you will barely have a couple of Million!  HAHAHA  Just kidding Good Luck and Dream Big!   Boy the hellacious party I could have with $100 Million.....I wonder if I called Jim Beam could I get a bulk price on some barrels of Bourbon?? LOL.... And it's Party Time!Banana

        The answer to the "Lottery Curse" is anonymity. Hire a lawyer and use a blind trust if your state will allow it. Some state lottery officials "say" you can't be anonymous, but their state law may say otherwise. Fight to remain anonymous. Live in an enclosed community. If you can't collect your winnings anonymously, then you really are set to receive the Lottery Curse. One answer to the Lottery Curse if you can't remain anonymous is to... become a lawyer. Yes, that's right. If you can't bet 'em, join 'em. Defending yourself would be free and no one would mess with you. As to any future wives, the prenuptial is your answer.

          I'M wishing it going to be my group I'm in. Small town USA wins big Jackpot..It's a long shot,50.00 dollars worth of tickets with power play. But at least we have a chance to win,that's all it will take to hit it big...A CHANCE....LUCK TOO!

          Remember,if you don't play,you will never have a chance to win it. Going to be big tickets sales in all the states that sell POWERBALL...

            To me their is no lottery curse cause if you read the stories about the people who got into trouble and did drugs  and other stuff. where already doing those things or have before and where just overall bad people. or tried to live big and out of their lifestyle

             

            Basically if your a drunk and a drug user then youll do more drugs and drink more if all you do is fish and watch football likely you wont  start drinking and doing drugs and living at strip clubs. so all money does is inhaces what you already do or dont do. 

            so if you have some kinda plan and consult a lawyer when you win and keep a account youll be fine and be your self.

                Some times decent peple who come into a lot of money suddenly attract bad people and if they hang around them long enough they will become just like them if they're not already.

                        This is so true! There are moochers out there who will manipulate you until you are drained of money and then they disappear. You've got to learn to say no and mean it. Along with a very good team consisting of an estate atty, a CPA, and a Financial Advisor, I would add an assertiveness training class. 

                         

                        This sure would be a nice jackpot to bring home. Lots of good things could be done with that money for my family and for our fave charities. I believe I am up for that challenge! Come on jackpot!
