    Geee, I wonder who won. Maybe he is just a slow starter, and now has a crew together to tell him how to function as a multimillionaire.

    Cheers

        If they wait until 2010 they would lose the prize in 2006.

          I understand.  It was a joke...this guy has been waiting seemingly forever to make the official announcement.

              I could care less. It seems like centuries ago.

                Actually that is pretty smart, just wait as long as you can until people no longer care. Ingenious! That way all those looking to come running for money will have forgotten by the time you get it.

                    Heheheh - whats left for the Robert Chaney and Steve West group to talk about?  How they are going to remain the calm, considerate people they have always been.  Will donate portions to charity, churches, and hurricane victims. Boring.

                    I want to hear the kid talk about how he is now rich and is going to spend like crazy on women, cars, women, and more women; oh, and pay some one to take his exams. (Like the Walmart chick did.)  I want to hear how he is going to flaunt his new beauty's in front of all those stuck up sweeties that wouldn't date him when his dad was a leaf-blower operator. I want to hear how he is going sking in Aspen along side the rich and famous.  I want to hear how money doesn't change some one.

                     

                    Cheers

                      That's assuming it is that family.    It could still be someone else that won it.  Lottery officials have confirmed none of their stories.

                        No matter who, I want to hear some down to earth honesty from these winners, without the borderline stupid comments about being the same old Joe, meeting at the corner market every Monday and buying a cup of java for the good old boys. I want to hear the woman say she is going out and spend a million dollars on dresses and shoes and not worry about the bottom line.  That would be honesty. I want to hear the man say he is flying to Italy so he can buy his shoes at the same place as George Clooney. That would be honesty.  I'm buying the biggest SUV available and don't care about the price of gas! That would be my hero.

                        Cheers

                          Yes but those "honest stories" would not make a very good impression on the kids growing up. Course encouraging lottery habits is also not a very good impression either nonetheless. Peron ally I would not 'media sugarcoat' anything, nor would I tell them what I was going to actually do. That is my business, not theirs or everyone elses.

                          I would say that they did not give a crap about me before I held the winning ticket, so that is how it should stay. I will be retreating to my newly built mansion where I will be a recluse to my new found paradise. I shoveled the crap of others my whole life, and now I will be dumping it on them. Now that would be a story! LOL

                            Amen to that! I will stick it to everyone, in the nicest way possible of course.

                              I fail to see where me, or any one else, outside of the parents, have a responsibility to put forth a good impression. Sports leaders are exempt.  Musicians are exempt. Movie peopele are exempt. Televisions executives are exempt. School teachers are exempt. Corporate executives are exempt.  Presidents are exempt. The future King of England is exempt.  Priests are exempt. Donald Trump is exempt. Ted Kennedy is exempt.

                              Somehow a gambler needs to carry the flag. Not hardly. Parents must accept their own responsbility, and quit thinking the world owes them a favor for having reacted to an erection.

                              Cheers
