Why lottery winners.

Just find the wealthy in your area and start asking.

    Hey, any chance you're a good looking woman? Or have a wife, sister or cousin who's hot? Maybe your mom is still young? You should post some pictures. Naked, or at least in something skimpy. I'm looking for a bit of a fling, and it's just too much bother to go out and actually meet somebody, get to know them, and convince them I'm a nice guy and that I don't want to just use them because they've got something I want (I do, but that puts a lot of women off, you know?). I mean, sometimes it almost seems like actual work. So, how about it? Hook a guy up?

      sounds like you need to start in the soup kitchens of Asgard, maybe when you see the true needy of the world, you will put your selfishness aside.

        Panhandling is an occupation and "looking bad" is part of the job and if it's not illegal the pros don't care what people think about them either.

        Maybe it's the times, but lately I've seen guys holding signs asking for help near malls and shopping area parking lots but they're not individually asking anyone for money. If someone wants to stop and give them a couple of bucks, it's their choice.

        Lottery jackpot winners probably do have many people they know or knew asking them for some money and a few "hello2009s" too. But I'll bet the amount of money their asking for is nothing compared to the charitable organizations. With people like hello2009, it depends on how many times they ask before it turns into harassment which is illegal.

        You're right,times have changed. The things people put on their signs are sure different. Before it used to be, "Will work for food." Lately I've seen, "Short on Rent",  "Traveling,Broke,Hungry" and "Need Shoes For Work". Regardless, it's all panhandling. Nobody should ask strangers for money,period.

            I totally agreed with ThatScaryChick; the sense of entitlement in this country has grown to an all time high--why would you ask a perfect stranger for their lottery winnings that they just won?? It makes no sense whatsoever; the lotto winner is entitled to enjoy and celebrate their win and"15 mins of fame" without worrying about every TOM, DICK & HARRY asking for ''THEIR MONEY' if they choose to disclose their hugh win to the public.

              Good points. There's a segment of society that has one goal in mind, and that is to "get over" on someone or something. Their day just isn't cpmplete unless they do.

              These are the people that seek cash-rich targets and hit them with frivilous lawsuits, all the way down to gthe people that reach into a newspaper machine and try and grab a paper when someone else has paid for one.

              Anyone remember the scene in the race track parking lot from California Split? Elliot Gould and his friend were on a losing streak and finally had a winning day at the track, and some creep showed up to put the bite on them.

              This thread should be perpetuated as an automatic response to anyone who says they woulnd't remain anonymous if they won a jackpot.

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

              Lep

              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.

                  i would like to know something. these big jackpot winners winning millions of dollars and all of them are just random people anybody can win lottery you just have to play   right? ok now! not all of them invaste their money some of them keep their money and live a life normal way. i want to know if it is ok for me to ask for some money ? i want to get in touch with some of these winners i am not sure if it is legal or illegal? this is not funny question.  what are your thoughts/opinions on this??

                  Asking people for money is not "Cool", besides, Who gives any money away? Good luck with that, it might be easier to win the lottery yourself than to get any free money from anybody.

                  You can of course try, your time is yours to waste, but you never know till you try, you might just get lucky.

                  If you like to bother people go ahead!

                    I gave a guy some $ today. He was standing in front of a store with a plastic bucket. Pasted on the bucket was a photo of a young couple. He was asking me for a donation for their funeral. They were in a car wreck and had their "necks" cut off. Well, I just couldn't refuse, it was such a good story.
