    I got no problem with a winner staying anonmous, in fact whenever I see a winner having a news confrence and and holding interviews like they are famous I cringe and say a little prayer for them and their family that they don't end up cursed by the win.

    All I ask is the chance to prove that money can't make me happy.

            I'm going out on a limb with saying, I think this win was right on time!  Congrats to the winner!

            Remember to flip 6's 9's, mirror front and end #'s, and do front/back3 for a hit!

                  for all of you in favor of anonominity and that gun totin oklahomaite comes to mind, you seem awful curious about who the winner is. i guess unless you win you want it publicized. kind of a double standard.

                  Can't say you're not curious as to what type of person/family won... I'll sleep just fine at night f I don't know, but i like the stories

                  I wish I may, I wish I might...

                      So many stories in the media are claiming that this was the "6th largest jackpot ever".  I don't know who came up with that, but it seems that someone made this wrong claim, and the rest of the media continues to parrot it.

                      For the record, it is the 8th-largest annuity jackpot, and the 7th-largest cash value.

                      Here are the top 10 of each:

                      Top 10 Annuity Jackpots (March 23 Powerball jackpot in bold)

                        They fit fine in my overalls, heh,heh,heh...

                        I ain't the skinny jeans type so I don't know about that (where's jimmy?).

                        They do fit in Wranglers and Lees and probably most anything else though, I'd reckon.
