lol , 17 people win a $1 mill prize, and all plan boats, cars and houses, aint they teachers? what no math skills.

oh dear im still wiping away the tears.... from laughter.

"Everyone thought we were going to be millionaires," said Rebecca Hedden of Fairview Township, then a first grade teacher."

Let's see, $1.5 million divided by 17 equals $2 million?

Wonder how many of them hired a financial adviser to show them the best way to invest $231 a month.

    Starbucks in the morning and Starbucks in the evening. That's what they each won.

        my old grand pappy used to say " back in my day we could buy a new ford for $200, of course we only got paid a nickel, so they where <snip>ed expensive."

        then he'd laugh like a crazy old man.

          Where do you get such info from ? ( 75 %)

          I'm guessing it's a place that's warm, dark, and damp.

            Maybe the ones who were planning the life of Riley didn't understand the game they were paying to play..maybe they thought
            they'd each get $1 Million...even though there was only 1 up for grabs. Stooges
            17 people in a pool playing each draw?...Maybe they even had a time machine which threw them right back to 1987 to collect
            when they won it in 2012. Who the hell participates in a pool full of potential winners when the jackpot amounts to a walloping $231
            per month? Let me play alone and collect alone.

            246 ~~ 485 ~~ 369 ~~ 890 ~~ 705 ~~ 357 ~~ 129 ~~ 165 ~  007 ~ 225 ~ 818 ~ 440 ~  7775 5557

                So technically Starbucks won the lottery.

                  Oh yeah... you were way before my time...... Growing up in Ohio they told us that bean counters were in high demand in Detroit and it was a big move up knowing how to count using beans.......

                  Well, Ronnie316, it was good to have a goal/objective/purpose those years. Lurking

                    "The day I picked the winning numbers, Frank was in a hurry when he stopped by to see me during a planning period," said Connolly, then a special-education teacher. "I picked my birthday and my husband's. Frank said, 'Just circle anything,' and that's what I did. I didn't give it another thought and I didn't watch the drawing."

                    She did in 1987 what is known as the "Donald" in 2012.

                    Her $231 goes towards bandages as I am sure she's still kicking herself thinking how much she and her hubby would have had if they'd played on their own.

                      The "Donald" only works for a very select few.

                        I was so happy to know that a group of teachers won a lotery jackpot, but at the same time saddened when I read that their expectations of being one of the many millionaires banished due to Uncle Sam's share on the winnings. 

                        These people may have been enjoying their winning for 25years and now it will soon come to an end.  How sad to know that by next year, no more checks will be claimed...

                          They should go to Vegas and use that last check to play some blackjack or roulette.  Bet on red.
