Would any of y'all say anything on lp if ya won?

Absolutely, I would post it about 30 seconds on here after I got the winning numbers. 

Why not? Your identity is going to be made public anyway and I am not too concerned about one of you hacking my IP and sitting outside my house waiting for me to collect my winnings however long that takes...not that I would still be here anyway. And I would definitely give this site an exclusive first interview.

        People will do whatever they want with there winnings . Living and Learning . I don't want someone sit there

        and tell me what to do with my money . Only few things you can do is , have many saving accts , CD's , /

        Money Market ,  really investing , there's no need , why to lose it .   I'll win the lottery tomorrow , and

        I have my list ready .

      I could make sure my kids went to the best schools... and definitely the best colleges... my mom could have anything she wanted.. afterall she's sacrificed so much for me... id love to travel and be more cultured.. my kids and some family as well... when i do get married i can have the wedding and honeymoon of my dreams!! my best friend has a child w disabilities and a husband in the army... i could buy them a house and make sure he has the developmental tools he needs... i could donate to the hospital that really helped my son at birth... his medicine alone is $2000 a month.. there's so unbelievably much one could do with this amount of money.. so many people i could help... while i won't blow thru the money... im a firm believer in karma and helping people if im able... even little things like paying for somebody's meal or giving a server an extra generous tip...

      That's great ashabug! I, too, get joy from helping others. Imagine how much you could brighten someone's day with a $100 tip! Good luck to you!

        pretty simple really...work,finances, family obligations and free time are the main stoppers from visiting all the states and doing the extras that I would be able to give more time to

        i work out usally every day, draw and paint as a hobby and vist my faimly a couple time a year. i dont need vast amounts of money to do things that can be accomplished with very little money. on the other hand to travel to every state, go to some concerts and volunteer my time will require alot of money and an organized plan .

          Ya, i would tell you guys. I would ask Todd to disable my message box though because of all the spam I would get.

          just make a new account and post your ticket.

                Yes, I would also give Todd the first interview. My attorney would be claiming our prize under an LLC hidden behind a trust so I wouldn't be too concerned about my identity being splattered through the media.

                We just got our tickets earlier this evening and I can at least dream for another 24 hours or so Blue Angel

                I Agree!

                      25k$.  Like I said.  Change nothing.

                      But I would travel.  First Class.

                        What you gonna do, sit around and watch the intrest accrue?  Drink/smoke/snort yourself into oblivion?  Whats your plan???....you can't just sit on the beach all day everyday....this is about true financial freedom...working and having a purpose is important.  Idle minds are not healthy.  What's your plan???

                         

                        Everyone has a different definition of "financial freedom." To some it means buying a nice house and car. To others it means never having to work again. You'd be surprised what it means to some individuals. Some poeple would like to just go to concerts, go shopping for clothing, go to the movies, try new restaurants, provide for their children and grandchildren, have a nice wedding, etc. You'd be surprised what people aren't able to do because of financial obligations. Imagine the little things that you don't get to buy or experience because of financial restrictions.  You'd be able to do those things if you win the lottery. 

                        There's so much of this world to see. If you like traveling, you won't have time to sit around or do drugs.  There's no way that someone has experienced all the great things that this planet has to offer. Even if you aren't into philanthropy and living in your purpose, traveling and seeing people from all walks of life will definitely spark something in your heart and mind that will lead you in the right direction. 

                        Good luck to all!Smile

                        Nice post. Good luck!

                            I would buy my boyfriend (children's father) and i both decent vehicles... well nice but not outrageous.. i would proally buy a house out of town til things calmed down.. gated community or large country property w some guns ;-) and some new clothes (not a name brand girl.. just comfy jeans n tshirts). maybe 200-250,000

                            I wish I may, I wish I might...

                              Gotta agree with you there Cletu$2.......stay away from any issues,drama,liability and headaches other than my money working for me and that dividend check showing up in the account each month

                              I agree as well. Can't imagine anything worse than being worth $160-180 million (depending on your state) after taxes and dealing with renters and their multitude of issues. For cryin' out loud, you've already made your money. Park it in tax-free munis, short-term bonds, buy some gold if you want, but 90% of it should be safe and simple. It's the clowns who try to be the next Trump that'll end up on Lotto's Biggest Losers show in the future.
