It's good that rich guys won. I think we can all agree on that.

When poor people win, they should have the money taken away from them and put in a trust fund so they don't blow it all right away. Then they can be allotted so much a week to get by and not enough for any stupid purchases like fancy cars or anything like that. They need to have someone in charge of their money so they don't get goofy with it.

I think 200 bucks a week should be plenty.

And there should be a law that they have to take baths at frequency levels to be determined by Congress.

You are a crack up RDGRNR!-weshar75

      a SINGLE ticket! Love it.

      Goes to show buying 10, 20, 30+ tickets doesnt mean a dayum when it can be won with a single buck.

      Congrats to these guys. Still, my favorite part is they pulled it off with a single QP!!

      remember the novel 1984, all the winners were created and non-existant. this was a ploy to reduce consumption

        This is not an accusation!  I believe something shady is going on with the big lotteries.  Reread the article and pay close attention to all involved.

          Bitter? Jealous much? You need to see someone about that, dude, these winnings do not belong to you. No one checks anyone's paystub before selling lottery tickets. Better head back to OW before they take your tent down. 

           

          Congrats to the winners. It sounds like they will be doing much in the way of charity with this.

          Hopefully these idiots who think they are owed something from hard working people who have done well in life will leave these guys along. I'm afraid that won't happen, especially after seeing it on this forum.

          BananaCongrat! to the trio, they look very nice especially the thirty something guys. My question is why are you people injecting politics in this, the people saying these things could not be poor or ow,everything that sound one way may look totally different.GoofJester

                Everyone seems to believe the story exactly as written. Think again!

                Three guys each contribute 33.3 cents to buy a lottery ticket? It took them this long to claim the ticket? Not likely!

                They are most likely claiming the ticket for someone else that wants to remain annoymous. They are doing this for the secret winner in exchange for the real winner agreeing to invest a lot of the money in their firm. The 3 so called winners are exactly the type of people a winner may visit to help with the money. It took a couple of weeks to work out the contract.

                Good luck.

                    Even if the winners had been poor people, they wouldn't have been after claiming their winnings.

                          it does seem a little suspicious that these investment guys split 1 ticket three ways.  i mean what did two of them give the buyer .33 or .34 cents each when he went up to pay for the gas. highly unlikely they payed cash for the gas anyway and wouldn't have bother to go inside. absolutely are claiming for someone else in return for handling the money and protecting the identity of the winner.
