LOL nice pic. LOL This idiot wants people to send him more money for his own personal business ventures so that he doesn't go broke? Green laughYeah Ok...I will get right on that. No wonder he lost so much money, that is what he gets for jumping right into the limelight, which has zero benefits. I do agree with the annuity though, especially for large jackpots, way less to worry about and less that you can lose all at once.

        I was sitting here feeling silly as I licked the envelope to mail him the check, but now that I know that someone of your caliber is on board----lol!

          The annuity is not guaranteed. The government can default on it. I doubt it will cause people will still buy lottery tickets as longas there is one.

            Never go into business with others . Never give money to people . Learn from Lottery winners , the mistakes they did.   Learn the Do's / Don'ts ....There's positive stories , media doesn't want to write about them .

                  The "new" Powerball was to supposed to produce the biggest jackpots, so far it has produced smaller jackpots but more winners!

                      Bunky needs to shut the hell up.  He's advising people to not take the lump sum, just because he's incapable of controlling his impulses & spends money like a drunken sailor?  Obviously, ol' Bunky knows nothing about the estate tax trap he's advising people to potentially fall into (where, if the lottery winner dies after a few years, his/her will beneficiaries will have to sell of the majority of the annuity future payments just to pay the estate taxes on the present value of future earnings of the estate).  If he was a financial adivsor, I'd not only fire him, but I'd make sure he was forced out of the financial advisory industry.

                      We had quite a few discussions about Bunky on LP when he won his jackpot. The guy was everywhere in the news promising things to lots of people. All he had to do was collect his check, answer a few dumb questions, and he would have been quickly forgotten. But he relished in the fame his jackpot brought him and many LP members predicted he'd be broke in 5 years because of it.

                      I'm happy to see he didn't waste it all, but he still has the time to spend the last dime.

                        He may as well spend the last dime; he can't take any of it with him, and at least half of what he leaves behind would be stolen for "estate taxes". Dead

                            in part "i thank the gods that granted the gift, i don't know which one granted it but thanks"

                            maybe the particular god that granted the gift is not happy w/ the fact that he does not recognize which one it it,

                            this is a problem when you have more than one, gods can be very jelous.

                              In Florida, if the media requests your information, lottery officials are required to provide it and we all know the media WILL request it.

                              In 4 states you can remain anonmous. The rest your name and home town is given.  You can claim as an enitity. A trust , LLC , partnership. I think this is legal for all states.
