      Forget opening a trust..that's just anonyous.  I'd claim my $$$ and have my picture taken and put on powerball.com.  I'd pretty much want everyone to know that I won.  Then I could work on making myself a household name and go hang with Paris Hilton (my favorite star) and various other stars.  i'd want the paparazzi to follow me taking pictures of me and snapping pictures of me on vacation on a beach in the south of France.  Then I get to be in Star magazine =)  Maybe I can even make it on the cover of a really famous and popular magazine as the most famous lottery winner.  Then I can do an interview with Barbara Walters (joking lol).  =)  I would drive a BMW or Mercedes.  They're not that bad in getting attention.  That's just the type of things I desire. 

      Just know if I ever win a jackpot you'll know who I am.  This all depends on how big the jackpot is too.  Not sure if there's much I can do with a $10m jackpot.  But with any jackpot my long term goal of relocating to Europe would become much more short term.

              Yes LottoMike.  I am very sure.  I want to be a star.  I want to be a household name. 

              Oh yeah to add to that.. I'd get a recording contract and make my own CD =)~

                      Yes, I've decided if the jackpot is $10m i would still take annual payments.  I don't see why I shouldn't.  I just don't want 1/4 of the jackpot after taxes.

                      Cash, that's not fair.  don't tell me not to count on winning.

                          Taxes or no taxes lump sum is better.
