You started out telling all future jackpot winners what to do with their winnings as if you're a divine authority and now you're telling me what I should do. It's none of my business if you continue to hand out orders or any of my business when nobody listens to you either.

            Which part of "I don't care what your opinion is about how jackpot winners spend their money and your very childish comments " is causing your brain to malfunction this time?

              Wanting a "jp winner to tell you what questions they were asked" is idiotic at best. How many jp winners have you talked to, since you came to LP? Like I told you before, most lotteries have claim forms available for download at their website, or you can take a trip to their offices and they will gladly accomodate you, with any legitimate questions you have.  Having your diaper twisted into knots in conjunction with your already depleted brain cells, is not going to change the facts. Following your logic, which is moronic at best, the next time you want to know about cars, find somebody who was hit and dragged by a car. Put down that bottle of bourbon, and that is an order.

                Taking my comment out of context and twisting them so you can continue your very childish banter doesn't change what is required on claims forms or what I said. 

                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".

                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.

                Nobody else had any problems understanding I was offering evidence showing not all jackpot winning tickets are treated as bearer instruments (the bearer is paid regardless) or my simple solution that lottery officials asks the bearer when and where they purchased the ticket. Your "know-it-all" opinions of how a jackpot winner should spend their winning are baseless because it's not your money they are spending. Which part of "only a real jackpot winner knows if they were asked when and where they purchased their ticket" is causing your brain to malfunction?

                "Following your logic, which is moronic at best, the next time you want to know about cars, find somebody who was hit and dragged by a car."

                My logic was about determining the true ownership of something, specifically a bearer instrument, and what, if any thing the lottery officials use to make that determination. I don't care how you "follow my logic" or what you think about it. You have zero credibility, but that won't stop you from pretending you're a "know-it-all".

                "You got it right Homie. No medication needed. They are the "Masters of the universe", at least , their universe."

                On the back of every lottery ticket it says something like "lottery game rules and regulations and state law apply to all tickets, transactions, drawings, and prizes". Good luck in suing the lottery because you don't like their rules and regulations after signing the back of the ticket to claim your prize. What other universe is there where you get paid lottery winnings for not following rules and regulations and the state law, "know-it-all"?

                Is one of the frequently asked questions in your universe, "will a ticket thief be paid the jackpot prize after serving his sentence"?

                    Thanks for the good advice. Usually select the annuity option and was surprised when my accountant suggested that I take it as a lump sum, to avoid having to file returns every year for this windfall.

                    Did not think this was good advice. Still believe that smart folks would rather have an annuity payment over 20 years, than to have a lump sum" burning a hole in your pocket".

                    Since I have not won anything big to worry about at this time,still like to remember the authur of this article's good counsel.

                      If you win this much money, chances are high that you will to want to brag about it. How could you not?

                      No, I won't. I would be very happy but I won't brag about it because it's money I don't earn. If anything, I would be a bit embarrassed.

                      Everyone who has ever done anything for you now may come with their hands out asking for something, or worse.

                      I agree. Some people would say: Hei, remember me, remember me, remember what I did to you? If it weren't for me doing you a favor, you wouldn't FILL IN THE BLANKS. Now, it is time to return the favor. Gimme your money, gimme your money!

                        "Everytime you do your copy and paste, you take things out of context."

                        The topic is suggestions for IF YOU WIN A JACKPOTbased on hypothetically beating huge odds. There are several opinions pro and con on all of the 12 suggestions and at the end of the day, they are still just opinions baseless or not and will never change the odds. How was I out of context or off topic by replying to the first of 12 things not to do if you win the lottery?

                        "If the whole post, is hard for you to comprehend, ask for help."

                        Why is it so difficult for you to understand I copy and paste a specific comment because that is the only part of a post I'm commenting on?

                        Did I miss where a new LP rule was created requiring us to respond to the entire post?

                        There is no rule preventing me from commenting on either of your threads in the Discussion forum or any specific remarks. I won't because they are based on hypothetically winning $1 million. And it's no skin off my nose if you believe it's intellectually stimulating asking for and commenting on opinions from people who never won $1 million and probably never will because of the huge odds.

                        "KEEP WAITING,FOR YOUR IMAGINARY JP WINNER TO TELL YOU WHAT THEY WERE ASKED."

                        I suggested only a real winner could explain the process determining if they were the rightful winner. We know for a fact Andy Ashkar was not the rightful owner or winner of the $9 million NY Extravaganza jackpot, the trust claiming the Hot Lotto jackpot, and several other people claiming the were the rightful owners of the winning ticket they signed.

                        Should I start a hypothetical thread like yours to get imaginary opinions?
