For a lead role in a cage?

    Just because someone has come into a lot of money does not entitle people to just ask that person for money.  If I were to win and someone asked me for a loan or grant, I would ask that person if they have asked Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Jay-Z, or President Obama for said loan or grant.  Regardless of the answer, I would say "NO."

    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

        Just wondering if you personally would ask for money if someone you know wins a jackpot. It's up to you to consider how much money you would consider a jackpot.

        Asking a Jackpot Winner for Money=Asking for Charity! Thud

          The Army doesn't have that provision anymore.

          Obama changed it to "anything goes/if it feels good do it" now.

          I'm told that truecricket and Nancy were seen sashaying into the Recruiting Office the very next day.

          That's just a rumor so far until we get confirmation though.

                    The only people I would even CONSIDER asking (and probably wouldn't in the end) would be my immediate family—parents and siblings. Otherwise, hell no. No one owes me anything, just like I don't owe them.

                      No I wouldn't ask. Like a lot of you I have that little list of people that I would help out if ever lucky enough to win. Doesn't mean I expect the same attitude back.

                        Please don't even hint about doing that in Tennessee, pumpi.

                        Somebody up north would be doing a high-speed sashay to Tennessee as we speak.
