he picked the same power ball twice randomly. when I was trying my luck that way, I think I actually paid attention that numbers are not the same. Does it mean I wasn't  doing it randomly, since I was paying attention?

Hmmm, I gotta try it again being drunk, so I can be sure I'm not in control of my hands while they are busy picking the numbers.

    I hope you're not suggesting that a woman's love, affection or marital preferences could be conditional, based solely on a man's personal wealth.

    Because I would be shocked and appalled.

      It was a nightmare for "jack" and all his people that had the luxury of quitting their jobs.

      I hope it works out better for Donald.

      No Ronnie......."Jack".......went  very very "Public"  about winning his money...I mean he stayed out in the "Public" even carrying a Large sume of money $500,000.00 in his Van on one occassion,  that's what turned his life and ultimately the lives of his family into a 'Nightmare'

        That's true,

        but Im talking about people around him who "quit their jobs" and lost their lives due to drug overdoses.

          I'm sure Donald is a very well meaning person,

          but I think it is a dis-service to give people a bunch of money and tell them "quit your job"

             The current MM jackpot is $93 mil. If I ever win that sort of money, I would rather create jobs than make people to quit jobs.

              He likes McDonald's but doesn't like filet mignon or lobster?

              He better get his taste buds checked out.

              I think he was trying to be humble while collection a big check.  He likely means he doesn't have expensive tastes and if he eats out at McDonalds.   Or on the other hand maybe he likes the taste of Wild Game better?  To some people a nice pot of Squirrel or stewed Rabbit is better than about anything.  To each their own.  With his dough he can buy himself his own Mickey D's or whatever he wants...(Although the McDonalds in maine some times have lobster rolls and they are great!)

                Giving people an opportunity to "quit their job" isn't telling them to "stop working".  He gave them a chance to do work other than their job.

                  Yeah, I suppose doing drugs could be considered "other work"

                    Not suggesting that at all.  It's just the way life is.

                      His relatives quitting their jobs means there will be new job openings for other people to fill.

                        Congratulations to Donald Lawson on is big win!

                        The article mentions that he spent just $2 on his winning ticket. The picture of the winning ticket show it cost him $8.

                        Don't you just love it when lottery officials always seem to minimize the amount wagered.

                          Lmao,I would love to get behind the counter and do that to someone with a straight face. That would be so funny on camera.

                          It would be funny....but I would be worried that the customer might be carrying a weapon. You never know these days...people do forget to take their meds.

                            I am glad to see a honest man win it..Now I hope he will stay away from too much McDs so called food and get into shape now that he has time to do it his way.. He is talking from a very modest nature but I think his taste of things will change after a while..

                              Dadgum if 3 numbers didn't pick me out!

                              $30 with the Megaplier.

                              Might just try that again for my monthly tickets today instead of the one QP I usually get.

                              I musta been lookin' at the wrong line, it was only $21.
