No loans for me, I have a lot of patience and could wait for my loot. Once the money has been deposited, then the fun begins. No hurry, good things come to those who wait.

Good things come to those who can afford to pay for them!  The sooner you have the oney the sooner you could have those good things. Get money, have money.  Never fails to be 100% accurate.  Wait?  Then later, ask yourself, why did I wait!  Not my style!

Cheers

    When I win the Powerball jackpot on saturday I will be at the lottery headquarters in Salem at 9:00 a.m. sharp monday morning.  Since I have all the numbers I will tell them were they can stick their press conference.  I will sign all the paper work and leave to wait for my check to arrive in the mail however long that takes.-weshar75

      The great-great granchildren of your great-great grandchildren will still be waiting for that check to arrive in the mail.  Meanwhile, the great-great grandchild of the great-great grandchild of the Lottery Director of the state you won in, would be watching all that interest accumilate in the states name, and not a penny of interest in your name.  A zillion years from now, you would have what you had the day before the Powerball lottery drawing.

      Cheers

          In Illinois...they do mail a check.  I cashed mine as soon as it arrived.  If it were for millions and millions..I would just go down to springfield,the capitol, with my lawyer and a few bodyguards and  pick it up myself, in person. That is,even, if they would let me.

              Put the lawyers in front and wear sunglasses. It also depends on how much you win. If it's a small (50-10 million) and you don't make a scene than you will just drift into obscurity.

                I'll tell you, if I hit and had to appear on a news conference, I'm putting on an astronaut suit or something like it, calling myself John Titor (of time travel fame- the guy from 2036), thanking the lottery folks that I can buy an X-203 M convertor for my time travel device, and going back to 2036.

                As far as everyone who sees it will be concerned, anyway.

                  Heck yeah. Oh how I would love to rub it in the face of all who have doubted me, been mean to me, or who I just don't like.
