"Plenty of past winner's have blown thru more than $80 mil?"

Don't take this personal but l Challenge you to produce 3 such winners; not 4, just 3 who burned through that amount. Second thing : She is Excited. .excitement does things to people,  whether it was a wise decision or not to come forward this quick,  it is a decision she made.Don't forget the word EXCITEMENT. 

By the way in an earlier posting l mention a project Engineer from Minn in 2013 who came forward within hours or a day after him winning half of a multi million dollar jackpot- an Engineer for crying out loud,  so let's just stop nitpicking this wealthy woman.It's her party and she can cry if she wants to..

    Debbie downers , I hope the best for her and her children. 

    You guys love to act like you have everything figure out but once you have that winning ticket in your hand you don't know what you will really do. Because imagining and experiencing are very different things.

    Maybe she will spend all the money , but is her money to spend. 

    I don't believe in tithe , we don't know her or how she has benefited from the church.  She has a child with special needs who probably needs constant care and maybe the church has helped her with the care , while some church spend their money in funding the pastors lifestyle and mega church some do have a compromise with their community and use the tithe to help the congregation and not them.

    One of my first rule of analyzing a church is to check how the pastor lives compared to their congregation , if your pastor is living in luxury while the congregation is struggling to live that's a church that I wont attend.

      Wow, some these comments are just so judgmental. What happen to being happy for others? Or is it that some of you are mad cause you did not win. I mean if you can try to predict how many years she will go broke, then how come you couldn't predict the numbers to win your share of the pot?

      Congratulations Marie! You are in a position to not only be a blessing to your family and friends, to many. God bless you!!!

      Donnie, I truly believe everyone on this site is very happy for this young woman and especially because of her personal situation, the win will set her/children up for life. That is a true blessing and I wish her the utmost success. 
          What key indicators for me indicate concern for her future are her past choices in life over the last 6-8 years(since turning 18). As we all know having 4 children by the time you are 26 is a HUGE challenge along with one of them being a special needs child. Next, with places of employment mentioned, it doesn't give much reassurance in financial earnings to having an average life, let alone to provide for 4 children(No knock on the effort..she gets an A for that).No mention of a spouse/significant other in the picture at all. We all know it takes the effort of 2 parents with complete dedication towards those 4 children and their development.... Not 1 or 2 children....FOUR !!!
      And last of all..the idea to come forward AND have your picture taken....That one sends up a red flag most of all because it's going to put any and every friend or POS that she ever had dealings with come knockin' on her door for a handout.
      While I pray she has a strong parent(s) and great financial and legal help, the above mentioned facts makes ME pause and say,"Hmmmm, there's concern for pitfalls".
      As far as making a judgement ? It comes with the right to free speech and the life's experiences. Opinions vary on any topic. To say that folks are so judgemental...of course we are... we are human beings with lives and "Judgements" are made every day... We vote and make a judgement on legal issues or a candidate(s) or a leader we want. We drive cars and make a judgement on the type/color of vehicle we drive.Do I want to buy a house or build a new one? it's a judgement call based on my opinion and life's experiences. We eat food and make a judgement on the type of food we eat or at what restaurant we eat it at. We work in a particular industry and make judgements on that or the boss we work for. We purchase products and make choices to be around people every day.... Am I to only make judgements that appeal to certain people's ideals???...NO, and I never will because I live in a country that gives me opportunity to make a judgement....but that's me and my freedom of choice... I wish you much success in your choices/judgements.Especially when it comes to your lottery earnings.

          Not lottery winners BUT there are 3 in this article published in 2010

          http://sports.yahoo.com/top/news?slug=ys-investopediamoneyloss031010
           
           

          Scottie Pippen... Lost $127 Million
          Evander Holyfield....Made over $250 Million, reportedly broke

          Mike Tyson......Squandered $350-400 million
          John Daly..admitted gambling away between $50-60 Million

          Thud

          "You hit the nail on the Head... NOT  Lottery Winners."

          This Forum is about them, and none other. I could have easily added Bernie Madoff, even Larry Ellison  ( founder of Oracle) and others whose fortunes have taken a dive and risen from time to time.

            As far as I know, just speaking for myself...there are more thousands of lottery jackpots to come in my lifetime. So, regardless who wins, I don't care because quite frankly these people does not know I exist and I don't care what happens to their new found wealth. I can spend 80 Mill in a heartbeat that's just one original Norman Rockwell oil paintings!  Just a thought...Smile

              I thought you were clueless at times, but l did not imagine you THIS clueless.

              Did you actually read what l posted before running off to collect your information?- l think not, why not take another hard look and this time " use your entire brain".

              The statement that was raised was about Lottery winners losing " More"... in this case MORE than Ms Holmes $80 mil plus singular jackpot win... you Only got ONE person on your so called list Jack Whittaker who qualifies. You attempting to Combine all the other lower lottery wins.. that was not the point of my Challenge. Has the light penetrated your cranium, has what l posted got through to you, is your thought process working at present? l Hope so, l really do.

              This is the part you missed Son...

              Don't take this personal but l Challenge you to produce 3 such winners; not 4, just 3 who burned through that amount.....

              Perhaps you need a moment to collect yourself....

               

              Peace Nonetheless..See Ya!

                          Wow!, just Wow!! I really am having a hard time understanding what I'm reading here in some of these posts, especially in a forum such as this. Everyone of us has this dream, probably even more so than others since we sign on/create accounts and post in a lottery forum. One in which we share ideas, dreams, and humour, all with our fingers crossed hoping to hit it big one day. As we witness this new journey this young woman and those around around her are about to embark on, why not write messages of encouragement, hope, congratulations, and advice for her. Who knows, she might log unto the Internet to search for 'past lottery winners' and stumble upon this site (that's how i found it). Why is there so much vitriol towards someone who represents and is embracing in this very moment, the one thing all of us on here want, dream of, even crave for? I am amazed and truly disappointed, never expected this in a forum as this. On yahoo and other comment sections yes, i expect it there. Not Here. ENOUGH!!!

                            Hearsetax, don't send me private message harassing me. Have the balls to post what you want in the public thread where i posted my opinion.  If you feel alluded or insulted by my previous comment that's your problem , don't bother contacting me again.

                            You are a loser and will probably remain that way for the rest of your life.
