Thats why Richie wrote a book on his so called winning " formula"- hoping some suckers can purchase it. He was on Youtube where asked the winner " l hope you did not use QP's"..and she said she had and won over $80 mil.He comes real close to being a snake oil salesman.

I don't always use oil, but when I do I prefer snake oil.

    I like that strategy for my "non-snake" oil QPs.

      I need a few more slippery, slimy "regular" numbers if anyone wants to contribute.

        Hey!! Ronnie, just checked the numbers that started with the 11-16-33-40-41+8. the numbers won 5 numbers correct on 2-2-2013, the powerball number was 34. trying to find out where it was won at, not NC powerball. Must be another state with 5 numbers right!

            I got that set from a news story here on LP. Im looking for the story of a pool who split the money.

                  one winner from Idaho, one winner Massachusetts, two from New York, one from Pennsylvania, one from Texas with powerplay, one from Washington all had 5 numbers correct.

                      I needed to fill a 5th line, so that's where I got the numbers.

                        lol You cannot claim a copyright in a lottery number (can't 99.9% ofthe  time for a number).  Now if you had a business called "100 moving guys" you could possibly trademark it if it was not in use and also something connected with an item like a 737.  A copyright is an "original work of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression."

                        Now we do have a tangible medium of expression with LP since I assume things are backed up on some sort of a system, but it ends there. And ideas are not protected by any law. However , if you publicly post some multistep system for winning the lottery, you are out of luck if people use it to win. Now they could not write a book on your system in most cases since copyright attaches at the moment of creation but you would have to show you are the original creator.  And if it was so novel that it required a patent (a process/for a utility patent), publishing in a public forum negates your rights and someone else would likely beat you to the patent office.

                        "And ideas are not protected by any law."

                        Almost right. There is no copyright protection for information.

                        "Now they could not write a book on your system in most cases since copyright attaches at the moment of creation but you would have to show you are the original creator. "

                        Since there's no copyright protection for information anybody is free to repackage your information and market it as they choose. The only thing they can't do is use the aspects that are protected by copyright, which would be formatting and  the specific choice of words.

                        "And if it was so novel that it required a patent (a process/for a utility patent), publishing in a public forum negates your rights and someone else would likely beat you to the patent office."

                        Since patents are granted for inventions (including  some processes), publishing prevents somebody else from claiming a patent since it's impossible to invent something that's already been invented; there would be an exception if they could prove that they invented it themselves before you published. In the US you do not lose your rights as a result of publishing before seeking a patent, but you must file within one year of first publication.

                          I will be getting my tickets tomorrow after work.   Will probably get me about $40 worth of quick picks.  I know the odds are low but the odds are the same for everyone and somebody will eventually win it. If I win the jackpot (about $70 million after the IRS steals its share of the winnings) I will give $10 million to various charities, leaving me with about $60 million. I will put $50 million in tax free bonds/munis. The other $10 million I will buy anything and everything I've always wanted and things I didn't even know I did want. Off the top of my head I would want to own a couple foreign exotic sports cars...vacations, buy a luxury apartment in New York in the upper east side (I have to schmooze with those in my rarified new wealth status now) and buy a home in the hamptons to "summer"  I will probably abandon flying commercial with the regular hoi polloi and start flying private. I'm sure being rich would be great, for a while but then it would get routine and lose it's excitement. I would probably end up giving away most of the money and then live on about a couple million.

                          Whoever wins, enjoy it!  Hyper

                          You're alot more trusting than most. Why not just put enough in the cover taxes from rest of investments?

                            Wow! You can do a lot with $ 183 million. I wonder who could be the lucky winner.
