Yet you are the one who posts all day long and I do not since I have a career. You seem to have real issues with women, especially ones who have education and expertise beyond your understanding. I recall how insulting you were to Jill.  I also recall the comment about women becoming realtors since only a HS education is needed. My money is on you having a GED at best and an occasional visit to unclog a toilet between posting all day is hardly work. But I think you assume any white collar work is not work. That says it all. You resent the "establishment" who you believe is holding you down.

All you do in the past 6 months is increasingly attack and pick fights with LP people and post idiotic icons over and over. You say things just to see if you can start an argument. It is old. I waited a long time before saying anything. Whatever you are so angry about, I hope you get some counseling. But again, your counselor may be a woman.

OUCH!!! That hurts. Is the truth supposed to hurt, or is it just a matter of opinion, or an astute objective observation?

    Since the hot topic is about bearer instruments, allow me to chime in. There was a story in LP and other media about a guy in BlackStone, MA who tossed a winning ticket in the store trash can. Some other guy who used to go through the trash can of that store was lucky that day. He found the winning ticket and went to claim the $1M. The person who bought the ticket sued and they settled out of court. Would lawyers of the one who found the ticket in the trash can "advice" him to settle if the lottery ticket is indeed a bearer instrument? There has to be more to this bearer instrument thing.

    It's just a fleeting illusion.

      Most lotteries have the claim forms readily available for you to download and see first hand for yourself, or you can go to the office and pick one up.

      True, but the small print at the bottom of form tells a slightly different story. The signer must declare under the penalty of perjury that no other party is entitled to any part of the payment. State lotteries have different rules and security methods and the News Forum is full of stories about winners who didn't buy the ticket and declared "that no other party is entitled to any part of the payment". Wouldn't it be common sense to ask a jackpot winner if they purchased the ticket and if not how they got it?

      If validating a $9 million jackpot prize was as easy as signing their name and address on the back of the ticket, taking the ticket to any lottery retailer to validate it, downloading and filling out the form, signing it, mailing it to lottery headquarters, and simply waiting two or three weeks for the check to arrieve, why didn't Andy Ashkar do it? 

      Before Andy had the chance for a really big score, he probably was a "ten percenter" based on his story he paid Miles $4000 in cash for $5000 winning ticket. Andy's store never cashed any $5000 winning tickets for that game and probably why he is in prison.

      Tracy Williams did purchase the ticket with the winning jackpot numbers, but her co-workers said they were entitled to part of the payment and filed a law suit. If the ticket is a true bearer instrument legally belonging the bearer of the ticket, why did the judge even hear that case?

      A real jackpot winner could tells us whether or not they were asked if they purchased ticket so we wouldn't have to just guess if because the ticket is bearer instrument, the lottery will pay the prize money to the bearer regardless even if they found it in the trash.

        By admitting they found it, they are admitting it doesn't belong to them and they are simply turning it in.  The only thing a person doing that can expect is a reward from the owner of the ticket.

        I always saw a lotto ticket as currency. Like real money, if no one claims it in time you should get it.

          Its unfortunate that nobody, even talks about taking the annuity, instead of the lump sum anymore. If you are young, and the jackpot is large enough, taking the annuity route might actually be a wise choice. At least you have 26-30 years, before you actually go broke. Most people outgrow their stupidity within the first five years. Better than paying some SUIT AND TIE, you don't know, thousands of dollars to manage your money. Hmm maybe I should take the annuity and use my drinking buddies. To each his own.Yes Nod

          "Its unfortunate that nobody, even talks about taking the annuity, instead of the lump sum anymore."

          But many members talk about getting a team of financial advisers. Do you really think any financial adviser would tell their client to take the annuity?

          "Most people outgrow their stupidity within the first five years."

          Are there any stipulations on the claim forms of how any jackpot winner spends their winnings?

          Did an actual jackpot winner ask for your advice or do you just know what is best for everyone on how everybody should live their lives and spend their money?

                        Bearer instrument is actually a misnomer. It almost sounds like finders keepers. YOU can purchase a winning ticket, and some fool calls the lottery ahead of time, and claims they had the ticket and lost it. The lottery will make you jump through hoops just to collect your money. Maybe we should all start wearing GO-PROS when we go to purchase our tickets.

                        Yeah, bad enough lottery winners get harrassed, or even threatened, for money after they've claimed their winnings. But you could run into trouble before you get the chance to claim, when such a fool comes forward and claims it's their ticket that they lost. Like that woman a while back, from Cleveland, I believe it was. You better hope you can prove to the lottery office that you are the rightful owner of the ticket.  Being a lottery winner draws a lot of parasites out of the crevices.
