      It's only a curse if you're a moron with the money.

          Exactly.

           

          I was watching an episode of "Lottery Changed My Life" and the wife of the husband (the one who won) said it was like a curse because they now live hours apart Monday through Thursday because he has to work so far away since they lost their money and couldn't find a job anywhere near them. They lost their money because he put like $200,000 towards his brothers "invention" (pole hangers for plumbers?) and then something like $2,000,000 towards a hotel with some other guy he didn't even know.

           

          It's not about it being a curse, it's only about people not making smart moves. Look at the people who didn't just throw money at things they knew nothing about and those that protected their privacy (either by staying anonymous or choosing the right places to live even if it means moving) and you'll see numerous amount of people that would strongly disagree that the lottery is a curse.

          (In that same episode was a couple who had fought two bouts of cancer and think the lottery was a blessing because it allowed them to spend more time together, something they were fearful of never having again before she beat the cancer.)

           

          If ever there was a "curse" I wanted put on me it would be that I would receive $50,000,000 from the lottery.

            I think that's correct.   It's only a curse if you let it be one.    Alot of lottery winners invest money in Dumb rip off scams and with family members ideas.......  A combination of bad investments...overspending...and fame can be destructive....  I read an article about NFL players who go broke...and it sounded exactly the same as a lottery winnner...  I think I read more than 1/2 of players go broke after leaving the NFL.....Nobody is saying there is a curse of the NFL...

                  rdgrnr,

                  If you're interested in such things, I have a couple of ideas:

                  Prescription windshields.......for drivers who don't want to wear glasses or contacts. This would also help reduce the number of stolen cars. Think about it.

                  The Seattle Lawn Sprinkler Co........explains itself.

                  Reverso....a type of shaving lotion that eliminates the need to shave when you're out in the woods. When you bed doen for the night you put it on your face and it makes a guy's whiskers grow in, not out. Then when you wake up in the morning instead of shaving, you just kind of gnaw your start of a beard off from the inside.

                  Scared

                  And, drum roll............

                  Lotto Insurance! You're covered when you didn't play your numbers and someone else did, and won on them.

                  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.

                            After watching that show you have to think that people can be born without a conscience.

                            How else could those people live with themselves after doing what they did to other human beings? Even the Nepalese guy who didn't kill anybody but just took the money and ran. How does he live his wealthy life now knowing he's living off money he stole from some old man in another country? That would torment anybody with a conscience or even any semblance of character. I just don't get it.

                              I agree.  No matter how much money you have...You still have to be able to look yourself in the mirror in the morning.   I  don't see how some people could live with themselves doing something like this...However their are sociopaths or people who can rationalize the worst criminal acts in their own minds.    One of the worst things about being a lottery winner besides losing your privacy would be losing your ability to trust in other people.... To me being able to count on and trust family and friends is just basic.   I couldn't imagine feeling like you couldn't even trust family and no one wants to talk to you except for money.  I think I would have to just give them a ONE TIME amount of money and disapear...
