How can you be "hounded to the ends of the earth" if your not running and not hiding?

It's a figure of speech, everyone will have their hand out, what's he supposed to do, give it to everyone with a sob story ?, thats the whole world.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    He might as well get his desire to be poor again by being driven down the streets throwing handfuls of money to the wind until there is none left.

    I've read posts of LP members who said they would do something similar if they ever won a lottery jackpot, only difference was they were talking about money they hadn't won and probably would never win.

      Perhaps a security guard to keep people off his property would be sufficient?

          I Agree!

          If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

          You never know when you will get another hit.

                    I have found in my conversations with people who play the lottery that most of them are not as educated in the  correct ways to behave when they win the lottery. 

                    They don't read the articles or comments on LP or USA Mega and most don't have a plan of how or what to do if they win. They just play without any real expectations of winning. None of the people I have spoken to in my travels know anything about this site or believe they will actually win. 

                    I, on the other hand, foolishly think I might win someday and henceforth have learned from this forum what to do and what not to do in case I win. 

                    All you need to be filthy rich is a $1.00 and a dream and if you're not prepared, it can turn into a nightmare.

                    If a person loses it all then I hope they had a good time spending it. God Bless them and watch over them.

                    If they invested it wisely and didn't let people take advantage of them then they were of that mind from the get go and God Bless them too.

                      Amen. And if you want to give a large amount to charity, do it but do it quietly and in a thought out manner.

                      I agree, even charities will hound you.

                              There was this little sparrow, who was standing on the ground freezing to death, and a cow came along , and Said " what wrong little sparrow? ' the sparrow explained he was cold, so the cow took a big dump on him.

                              Now the sparrow was squaking how he was covered in cow dung, and a wolf came along, and the wolf said " whats wrong little sparrow ? , Little sparrow explained that a cow crapped on him, so the wolf picked him out of the crap and shook him off, then ate him.

                              And the moral of the story, is not everyone who craps on you is your enemy, and not everyone who gets you out of crap is your friend

                              And if your warm and safe, keep your F&&&&ing mouth shut.

                              LOL!! Very good Sully!!
