I'd go to work as usual and not say a word. After I let it sink in that I won, I'd travel to the lottery office and claim my winnings. Afterwards, I think I'll disappear so nobody can bug me about giving them some money, LoL.

That's a given..This is the way it should be done..tiggs is going to the Louisville Lottery Office get check and say "Catch tiggs if you can"..

        How about going to work in a big stretch limo.

        They might figure something is up!

          I don't have a job so I don't need to go. But I would need to move to another city far away from where I  live.

            Did you see "Accidental Fortune".

            This guy inherited a coin thought as worthless.

            Through investigation he found that it was indeed worth between $6-$10 mil.

            So what is he doing? Sitting on the coin, thinking of what he COULD do with the money.

            Maybe he could get his house fixed, maybe he could get his car fixed.

             

            Ummm, sell the stupid coin, buy a new house, buy a new car....   Duh!

              I used to work with a cheapskate who always said if he won the lottery he would get his 10-15 year old car painted and buy a new couch.

              I always reminded him that it was highly unlikely he'd ever win since he was too cheap to ever buy a ticket.

              He always told me to quit bummin' him out.

              To which I always responded: Like wow dude, far out.

              He hated me.

                The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

                infringe -  1. to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress  2. encroach or trespass

                encroach -   1.  to advance beyond proper limits; make gradual inroads  2. to trespass upon the property, domain or rights of another, esp. stealthily or by gradual advances

                 

                A Constitutional right left undefended and undemanded and allowed to be infringed upon will be lost forever. We are now living under a regime keenly aware of this fact and ready to abrogate what they consider to be a "living document" susceptible to change at the whims of popular culture. Those who wish to take away our rights are masters at doing it incrementally. If we wish to remain truly free, we cannot surrender an inch to those who would take our liberty. 

                If every action that could potentially "save one person's life" were taken, this country would be utterly paralyzed.

                Automobile accidents claim 40,000 lives a year on average. Look at the lives that could be saved if we outlawed automobiles.

                 

                "From My Cold, Dead Hands"     ~ Charlton Heston ~ 

                Well said ridge. This is a little off topic but I have to say I can't understand why there are people who don't understand the "give an inch take a mile" approach that government has become so good at. And why people continue to elect those that wish to take our rights away.

                  I would call out sick and go straight to lottery headquarters to make sure the ticket is valid.  I wouldn't want them to say there was a "printing error". 

                  Once it was confirmed, I would then claim it anonymously (we can do that in SC), book a hotel room for the week (since lottery headquarters is an hour from my home) and then visit an attorney & tax accountant.  I would then go to work the next day and not say a word to anyone.  Just that I'm not feeling like my usual self!!!  Which would be no lie!

                  I would NOT give my two week notice until the bank confirms that the money is in there.  Only then would I turn in my resignation letter.  I would tell my boss to hurry it up with my replacement because I'd rather not work a two week notice but that this time I'm doing HIM a favor.  He always throws it up in our faces that we're lucky to have a job when we voice concerns about being cussed out, threatened and not having adequate protection. 

                  The job sucks...we work for angry public...so I'd rather quit the same day....BUT I'd hate to put my co-workers through such misery of doing my work in addition to theirs.  The job sucks, but my co-workers are cool and my consious wouldn't allow me to leave them suffering like that.  Although I doubt they'd do the same for me.

                        Right on. We should stick to the exact meaning from when the Constitution was written, and I stand 100% behind your 2nd amendment rights exactly as the framers intended them. The only waiitng period that should be necessary is the time it takes for you to open your powderhorn and  measure your powder, pour it in the barrel, load the wadding and ball, pack it, load your primer and pull the trigger. The only limit on how many flintlocks you should be able to own is your budget and your desire.
