I know, and the the Universe just kinda happened out of nothing for no reason too, lol.

No such think as luck, because fortunately, or unfortunately (life doesn't seem so fair), nothing happens without a reason....so, not luck, karma. :)

..and the reason a pedophile from FL  won was because?

    Jeez. These people must have been champing at the bit for their 15 minutes before they even bought the tickets.

    Ha! Big Smile

        There ya go.

        Me, I'd give notice at work but not say why.  I'd give 'em a week, and when the boss would ask why only a week, I'd say, "Well, from what I hear, all your employees are 'so easily replaceable'... right?"

            Congratulations to them.  That's the problem with winning these big jackpots.

            The cameras, press and media won't leave you alone.  How annoying!!!

            This family sought out media/attention ,, Not other way around

            They set up this interview and exposed there own identity

              Yes because they had no choice in most states when you win you can't stay ANONYMOUS! THAT'S NOT FAIR, So they did it on their terms to get it over with and hopefully be left alone!

                If I understood the reasons why things happen, I would be a saint and not interested in winning the lotto. :)

                        LOL, sorry, but ain't gonna happen as far as them being left alone...in an ideal world with no jealousy and greed,sure, but that isn't this world...and on this ideal world (if one exists)  there is probably no need for Powerball anyway lol :)

                         

                        And, the last PB winner was also from Tenn., and they formed a trust to stay anonymous...so, yep, looks like it can be done.

                            Could be classic BS- saying you " going back to work." I mean the reason people play the lottery is to quit getting a cheque for the 9 to 5 daily grind. These folks are saying we " need that cheque ".. Like ...why?

                             They should hire a tax lawyer and ask him or her how much in taxes will they pay from their work paycheck?

                             I've been rich and I've been poor. Believe me, rich is better.

                               I understand that there is a huge gravitational pull on the ticket to validate it the next business day. That is why your bank has Safety deposit boxes or "Safe boxes" as some would say.

                               This tactic would give you the time you need to get your ducks in order and there are a lot of ducks. 

                               Tax Lawyer, CPA, CFP, MD's, psychiatrists, family counselors and on and on.

                               Of course, you will want to tell your family and maybe your best friend. Why? Are they your professional counselors? Do they have a clue of what is the next step in your new life?

                               One telephone call you might make is if the Lottery people are showing the video of you buying your ticket, then have your lawyer call them and give them the 18 digit # on your ticket to prove that he represents you. This should stop the Lottery office from running the video and splashing your image all over the world.

                               Dunk Cool your jets!
