My husband and I are both active traders in the financial market so we have experienced large gains before just not quite the level of where this jackpot is heading.

We would both confide in our attorney and absolutely no one else. As for keeping quiet...not a problem, but staying calm might be a little tougher.

Well you live in a warm climate,get in your bare feet and walk in sand or mud to remind yourself you're still on earth,

and all physical laws still apply,

    It allows a lawyer or whoever is in charge to claim the prize for you, so your identity is hidden. So no one knows you actually won. Only certain states allow you to do this

    So the lawyer can b the face behind the madness?? is that n all states or just some?

      I believe only a few allow this. Ohio is one of them of the top of my head. Its usually called a blind trust.

          My husband would know of course but we wouldn't tell anyone else until the money was in the account and even then it would only be certain family members but eventually in the small town we live in it would get around. Thankfully Kansas lets you be anonymous when you claim, with two young kids our first priority is to keep them safe and out of the media.

            I think it might be more than a 'few', but yes, you're right, Ohio is one of them. And for that I'm very happy.

                  The hardest part would be around co-workers, acting like everything was 'normal', showing up and doing your job like usual until all bases are covered. Might have to take acting lessons.

                      I Agree!  Except I don't do pools. 

                       

                      Haymaker - vaca is easy if they grant it. My department is beginning a 3 week (minimum) vacation moratorium Monday a week from now. But that's okay, it takes a bit of time to get everything all set. Keeping it under the hat will be easy since we'll be doing major OT again. Sure would be nice to have that end permanently. Dead

                        I would only tell my dad when I win. There is no way I could keep winning all that money from him.  Other than that though, I wouldn't tell a soul.  Not until I got all my ducks in a row and knew exactly what I was going to do.

                          You are all very dumb to be playing the Mega Millions Lottery. I don't understand why people put so much money into the system when I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna win Jack-in-the-Box
