        Not sure the disguise idea would fly. Pretty sure you need to look like the picture on your photo ID.

            Worked well? Is that what you're going to say when Mickey Mouse is asking for MY AUTOGRAPH?

              Oh brother, RAD,  I see you are STILL in Disneyland over that you-first-before-me....I know you prefer "its a small world" but I think you have had a few too many trips on "Space Mountain" and are slightly "goofy".......take deep breaths and repeat after me...CDanaT first and Rad is second".  You will feel better....I know I do  Yes Nod

                Per your instructions:

                CdanaT is first and Rad is the EXAMPLE

                 

                Clearly you want to lay the burden on me of blazing the trails and I humbly accept.

                    You can certainly have the 5 white balls first....no problem there..... Then I will accept the  5 white balls and pb ( all on one line of course) as a follow up. ..sounds reasonable to me..

                      Who looks like the picture on their ID,anyway?Picture ID's are notorious for not looking like the person getting their picture taken.

                        If you read the actual rules you'll probably find a clause that says something along the lines of "the winner agrees to allow the lottery to use their likeness for promotional purposes."

                        Any pictures taken while you're wearing a disguise won't represent your likeness. OTOH, you can wait to claim your prize until you've gained 100 pounds, grown a beard down to your chest, and hair down to your ass and that wil be what you really look like.

                          I'm in a state that has anonymity rights, and, if I ever won, I'd keep my anonymity.

                          But I'd want to go on camera and say a few words about how screwed up this world seems to me, and of course my intentions with my lotto winnings.

                          For one, I'd get as much spread-out land, as I could.  This is so when our over-populated planet eventually approaches standing-room only, I'd be set.

                            Not even worried about taking the anonymity to that level.

                              Either you collect your winnings anonymously or you go on camera and say a few words about how screwed up the world is.You can't have it both ways.
