Who gives you a million for a vegas vacation?  I have been playing the wrong lottery games!  Have I missed something within the rules?

 

and as far as not knowing the laws and rules... isnt ignorance of the law no defence as a legal defence?

Might be he's referring to a million the lottery spots you until your big direct deposit gets to you 2 Weeks or so later?  Lep

        I thought I would confer with my six psychics on retainer to give you a free reading as your prize.

         

        Here we go: Buy $2 QP from the service station east of where you regulary buy your gas. Carry those numbers as they will bring you good luck very soon!

          I also have no sympathy for him, I checked the story on why he couldn't cash his ticket on time, yes he had rough circumstances and people relying on him,  but it would have taken two minutes to check the numbers either online or his next visit to the store (everybody's got to eat right, you don't forget to eat and take time out of the day for that, why not for lotto also???also here in texas you only have 180 days to cash your tickets-would the people saying give him a break, say that in mine if I were 6 months late, once the rules are bent then everyone wants the rules bent for them.....my personal thought however is that there should be no deadline....also why is this still news?

              You hit upon a good point that I found very interesting. Why is there a deadline in the first place? I agree with you that there should not be a deadline, or if the states wanted to impose some sort of penalty let it expire over the period of time the annuity would have been paid out. 

              So say if the jackpot would be paid as an annuity over 26 years like in New York then let that be the penalty, for each year that the ticket is not claimed you lose that years payments. So my time period would be the annuity payout period. I think that is fair, what do you guys think?

                fair idea to lose your annuity for as long as you don't claim your prize. this guy who won't get elected dog catcher is trying to get onto the political gravy train to recover some of his prize. who's kidding who? becoming a political hack is the easiest way to get cash.

                          Anyone living a life without deadlines is living a life of chaos.  If 6 months up to a year isn't enough time to validate a ticket, then no amount of time is imop.

                            How very true. Life is finite. Our time here is short. Without "deadlines" we might just wind up "dead" before achieving any of our goals.  Dead
