    Nancy, my wife and I honeymooned there.  Very cool island.  A lot of wealthy people own houseboats and anchor them off shore, living there year-round.  Funnest place I've ever been to.  I'll have to play the Mega on Tuesday so I can buy the boat and invite you down for a spell.

    Rick,just had to say,that photo gave me the laugh of the day! Gread job,truecritic. Hilarious!

          Mike and Guesser -  Lots of people from French Lick, Indiana have relatives there.  They check your license and registration at the border for safe entry.  The people from Gay Meadows, AL tried to set up a community there, but they were kicked out and finally settled in Queer Creek, Alaska.  There was so much gossip about the woman from Three Way, Arkansas that she finally sold her home and headed off to Fort Dick, Calif.

              Is Linda Kollmeyer aware of the "presence" next to her? Maybe that's why she's been acting a little goofy during the drawing!

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                Pennsylvania seems to have a lot of place names that are, um, interesting.  Even stranger than Blue Ball being  a stone's throw from Intercourse,  only 45 mile away you can find Virginville. You'd have to go almost 250 miles in the opposite direction to get to Keisterville. There's a place where you could just sit around  and relax while things die down.

                  OK, you've won a jackpot and after reading the threads about sharing with others, remaining anonymous if at all posssibe, and info from state lottery websites themselves you decide to disappear for awhile.

                  Where do you go?  Keep in mind, the idea is to "lay low", "go to the mattresses", etc...

                  I would be home because nobody would know I've won it.

                     A lot of us here are not so sure that's possible.

                      Sure it is, if your last name is Smith, Jones, Adams, or Johnson.......

                        The Bay Area of CA (Belmont, South San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto) would be a good place. Find me in this vast region. Hhahhaa to the bank.

                          I will lie low for several weeks, maybe 6 months.  Sweden comes to mind.  But first, I'll claim my winnings ASAP.

                              I chose an emergency room. Takes forever to get a doctor to see ya and by then , your lucky ya can remember what you came in for! Seriously whos going to look for you in a local hospital or even your local doctors office.

                              Or try a federal building where you are asking for help. They'll have ya filling out so many forms that you'll be occupied for days before anyone recognizes ya!
