I think this is a very good question...And the subject is very sensitive...Lots of us don't think about it, but what will happen if let's say you had the the 100 million or 200 million winning Powerball ticket...And let's say you lost it forever?

or let's say you bought it and won but then someone stole it from you or something...Could you live with yourself in the future...This is something we have never thought about and i think you need to be sincere when responding to this for your own good...That's why they say that money is very powerful and so are women....Both things are like a drug...

If such thing was to happened to me, sincerely, in the future i know that the thought of shooting myself will cross my mind, would i do it i don't know i don't think so...Anyways this is something we all should think about...Just the thought of knowing that you had all this in your hand and you blew it...Is indeed creepy...

This reminds me of a very beautiful women i saw on a bank ontime, she was so beautiful i think she might have been the most beautiful women in the world...i've thought to myself having such a woman in your hands and then losing her (divorce, death, cheating etc) have to have been catastrophic to the point of you contemplating suicide...

Anyways what i am trying to say is knowing that you had the winning ticket, not to 1 million, not to 3 million but to 100 million or 200 million and then you lost it has to be mind devastating...Don't you think?

your thoughts are welcome...If you lie you are only kidding yourself...Comments welcome...

Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

      When money lost you can earn it all back. I'll try at it again for the next jackpot.

      I don't think I'll stop if I knew the system I had offer couple winnings in a lifetime.

        I wouldnt forgive myself but then i wouldnt kill myself either. Ive lost out on making money on share trading a lot less than $100 mill, and am pretty peeved at myself over that. i think if u can learn from it, its not a total loss. and anyhow being the humerous butt of other peoples jokes is always a good use for a life right?

          Yes and no.

          The odds of winning this great amount has it's own set of problems for my brain to untangle. As far as the dilemma you propose....well....... I'd rather wait to cross a bridge when I come to it.....lol

          Just for brain space conservation...lol .......Gotta get more memory space. Maybe 3 Bazillion more bytes.

            I wouldn't lose the ticket in the first place. But if I did I'd be taking a trip to a place with a nice padded cell.

            You can't predict random.

                  Hey Pumpi,

                  Boy this is a sensitive subject.
                  But here goes.....

                  On one hand I am a true believer in  if you are suppose to win the lottery, you win. (all the way) But then I think, well, I did win. but lost the ticket.    I thought about what you said about suicide, would I do it? probably not,  But I would  stay in a depression for quite a long time (maybe years) would need some serious therapy (honestly) And I would most likely stop playing the lottery because my chance of winning again would be virtually non existant.

                  I get a very sick feeling everytime I can't afford to play my regular numbers (which I try to never miss) but on the times when I don't play,  like I did last night  I get that extremely sick feeling until i check the numbers and realize I wouldn't have won anyway.  But it is not a good feeling.  So I cant imagine what I would do in the situation you described. 

                  Its easy to say what we'd buy when we win the lottery  but to think about  what would happen  just in case- and what if- like the unclaimed folks we talk about, is unthinkable.  Great post.  Thanks.Bang Head

                    I think i would need some time to recover from my huge mistake...its really not about the money but the freedom it will allot me...i would get over it..but no need for a padded room as someone previously mentioned, haha

                      I would be very very depressed about it, but I would go on living.

                      Even though I have grand schemes for staying anonymous, I would be concerned to lose my ticket and might go claim it right away.

                      Infact, that in my mind has always been one of the harder lotto decisions.

                      If you have ever had your wallet lost or stolen, you know it is possible to lose stuff of value without meaning to.

                          I am afraid Rjoh-i dont a gree with you-Know lottery win comes easily,it requires lots of sacrifice,patience and tolerance

                          I Agree!

                          There are no born heroes or winners........it takes a hammer a chisel,a vision and a will to suffer the blows and be carved into one!..........

                            I would get over it. I would have to... That would be just as bad as someone who plays the same pick 4 or cash 5 or megamillions or powerball numbers every drawing and the time that person doesn't play that would have had the pick 4 exact or 5 of 5 in cash 5 or 4 + 1 in megamillions/powerball or better...

                            I have been playing 34 powerball number for 8 months straight and when it fell like 3 or 4 drawing ago I didn't have it played..

                              This is the stuff nightmares are made of!!!!

                              Actually, since I have lost stuff in the past. It would be hard for a few days and then I would have to accept what happened.
