    I won $150 million but I donated it all to Research.  I was hoping they'd find a cure for whatever makes me continue to buy lottery tickets.

      You wasted your winnings, I could have found a cure for $1 million (no guaranteed but cheaper).Wink

        NoW I can buy a surplus missle silo in the Dakotas, live in it, get cable and DSL, and take the annual annuity check and stock up on MRE's evey year!

        LIVE IT UP! 

        (Every time I get one of these e-mails I'm very tempted to play the numbers)

        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.

              Actually there been some people come close and others who have matched 5/5 in their state games, one even posted a picture of his winning ticket worth 200K+ as proof but he moved on and hasn't posted anything for a while.

                Not sure if it's the same person you mean RJOh, but I remember someone here saying they hit the 5/5 twice.

                    Yep, it would be crazy for someone to post they had won millions of dollars if they wanted to continue enjoying posting here.  I've never won a big jackpot but before I removed my e-mail address from my profile I got all kinds of letters with sob stories and lottery investment schemes.  Anyone posting they had won a lottery jackpot would just be inviting more of the same, after all we're one big LP family and family help each other.LOL

                      i won 200 million in powerball and got so paranoid i stayed in my room all the time.you can see in my avatar where i had it all stacked in nice,neat piles and you can even see where i'm holding some of the money in my hand.however i then donated all but 50 bucks to various charities.you see i read a book where it said elvis gave more than any other person.he gave houses,cadillacs,boats,you name it he gave it.well i started feeling jealous so i started giving my fortune away too.why i even gave one person a brand new house just for saying hello to me in the supermarket.genorosity is contagious.spread the wealth......
