I'm not going to knock the guys good gesture to his block. He probably should have went about doing it a little more quietly. Also, from what I understand about the $13000 gift ceiling, the IRS has no dog in the fight on counting it as income for the recipients.

    Just heard from Pedro's attorney that this is not true he never said he was paying people's rent.  Man I am praying for this guy he is really gonna need it.  But I got this bad feeling he is going to be one of those what not to do when you win the lottery winners. Just hope he doesn't end up broke.

    Tyler, do you have a link with the statement from the attorney?

        You could be wrong. Jack handed out $1000+ per week for dope habits. I dont think Pedro will do that.

        I hope I'm wrong.  Given how hard it is to save money, I hate reading stories about lottery winners who throw it all away.  Guys like Jack Whittaker and Dave Edwards just piss me off...

            As a matter of fact, if you had ever lived in the hood you would know that those who are truly poor are often the most humble people on the planet and it wouldn't surprise me a bit if most of them turned him down. 

            Its the "I don't have any money" suburbanites that would feel entitled and sue him for boating money.

            You are correct.

            I have seen many, who themselvs are living on the margins, have little to nothing to show to their credit, yet helping to bear the hardships and crosses of others near to them as family or friends, at remarkable and most humbling degrees.

            I once went out, when I was able to, and hired two guys who lived at a Group home, to help me do various work around my yard for the day. I agreed to pay each person by the hour. 

            Shortly after the start of work, one of the guys felt sick and said that he could not continue to work. So, I had him sit down and rest comfortably, under my front porch, while his friend and I continued the work through the early afternoon.

            Throughout the work, his  friend would stop frequently  to go and check on his friend.

            At the end of the work day, I paid each worker,  according to the hours that each had worked, and an amazing thing happened. The gentleman that worked throughout, took his pay, split it up, and gave one part to the other, who quite early on, was unable to continue the work, and by no fault of his, and hence,  was unable to earn the expected total wage.

            In short, he worked for himself and for his friend who was unable to work and to have earned as much.

            Without any doubt in my mind, the men were disguised angels, with a packed message and model, for altruistic living even in the midst of apparent emptiness, and extreme lack.

              No no no, no blockhead. If the block has 50 homes and they rent be $500. thats $50,000 for everything.

              Where did you go to school?Did they teach math,there?Apparently not.

                I was wondering how long it would take him to recant.  Or maybe this was just wishful thinking on someone's part that he would indeed pay rent for everyone.

                  someone prob told him to pay all their rent, then went to the media. and said he said he would.  leaving ot to pedro to extracite himself from the assumed gift.

                    Its an established fact that I never learned fundamental mathematics. But thanks for reminding me.

                      I was think they were all friends of his. Like people he borrowed a cup of suger from and where his kids played, and BBQs together. For all we know those people helped feed his kids in hard times.

                        wonderful, does anyone wonder how new jersey has a winner for almost every drawing?   hmmmmmmmmmm

                        Yeah I've noticed that too Rocky but I can't get a sniff at anything. I've won maybe $7.00 in the last 6-months between PB and MM.

                        New Jersey has been lucky lately. Here is what I come up with:

                        $211.7MPowerball3/13/2010   Morris Plains, NJcash

                         

                        $70MPowerball3/21/2012  Tinton Falls, NJcash

                         

                        $89MMegaMillions1/25/2013  Orange, NJcash

                         

                        $338MPowerball3/23/2013  Passaic, NJcash

                        Plus we've had countless 2nd prize winners too. It seems that Powerball is kinder to NJ than MegaMillions but I play both.

                        Good luck Rocky and welcome to LP!
