I just saw an advertisement that A&E will be running a program about lottery winners tonight at 10pm EST.  Tonight Sat. March 17.  Oh and Happy St. Patricks day everyone.  Hope the "Luck of the Irish" is with us all!! Lep

    Thanks for the heads up. The last time it was on I only caught the last part of it.

      Thanks for the heads up here, too.

      Lois, Meg, Brian (woof woof!) and Stewie thank you also!

      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.

        Your welcome.  From what I've seen of "successfull" lottery winners the common thread seems to be to keep a low profile, say no to beggers (even if they're family), move if you live in a small town.  Basicly do the exact oppisite of everything Jack Whittaker did!!

                      You see how ungrateful the black lady's son in law was being when she remodeled their Townhouse?  That was ridiculuous.  He looked EXTREMELY miserable.  Almost to the point where it was like he expected that woman to just give them a super large sum of money.  It looked like he thought she owed him something.  Did anyone else get that vibe?

                        Yeah, but her son mentioned how she came home from work tired every night. She spent 26 years working a job just for the money- did you catch that, even the narrator said, "Selling her life to Kellogg an hour at a time".

                        It's understandale that soemeone who spent over of a quarter century working for a paycheck wouldn't just hand something to someone, family or not.

                        You had to love oit when she forgot about the ticket and heard the news report that the winner had not claimed the ticket and she said, "Where is that idiot? If it was me I'd have been there yesterday!"  

                        I thought this was one of the better lottery programs, not scandalous, not pro, not con, not judgemental,  just factual reporting.

                          Even when dude was singing in the choir, you could see the misery and envy, almost resentment that he had for his mother-in-law, in his face.

                          I have to agree with you 100% there!  I felt it was really a feel good program.  I hope it comes on again with different stories.  That was smart of that Girl who won the win for life to at least invest some of that money she got instead of thinking she was rich (millionaire status) and stopped working on $52,000 a year.

                            Really enjoyed watching it...just wondering how many people wrote down the lottery combinations that won the big jackpots on the show and how many of us are planning on playing them.  Going to start playing 7-8-28-29-31-33 from now on, that's the combination that won the Army Vet Bob his $60 million.  lol

                              Coin: "I thought this was one of the better lottery programs, not scandalous, not pro, not con, not judgemental,  just factual reporting." 

                              It showed a nice contrast between a $14 million winner and a $1000 a week (guaranteed $1 million) for life winner too.
