    We know you don't really mean that.

    We're all friends here.

    So let us know when you win, dude.

    Or just me, if you prefer.

    Have you seen the new Bentley?

    Awesome.

    I want 3 of those, dude.

    We should hang out!

    Now Ridge, Billionaire2bee promised to share his winnings with me and my 8 hungry children and to harvest my crops in the field...after he buys me a new combine.  I would be glad to sign any agreement with him to split the money.  We will have late night conversations and discuss Voltaire, Hugo and why the little flower was so vain in "Le Petit Prince."  What a life we will have!

    J'aime La France.

            In fairness onlymoney, the common phrase "I have no problem saying no", is hardly something you can have a trademark or patent on.

            There are hundreds of thousands of everyday phrases that people use daily, but no one is entitled to tell another that they cannot

            say or write that phrase without your permission.

             

            Now a whole body of writings such as a song, poem, book novel, movie script, etc would be a whole different animal. Now if someone

            is using your written and copyrighted work without your permission, particularly for profit, that would be plagiarism.

             

            I understand where your coming from however, and no malice is meant toward you.  Cheers

            Is that like the phrase "I won the lottery"?  I hear a lot of lottery players saying that even when they have only won a dollar.  Even though there's no trademark or patent on it, it should be limited to people who won a lottery jackpot or at least its second prize.

              Everyone?

              I can see you saying YES in those instances where your team evaulates their varying circumstances to meet urgent needs and not buying dozens of sports cars and luxury homes.

               

              Or saying YES and not backing it up the C notes.

               

              Im sure you have some sound logical thinking behind this or I am at the end of a clever joke - lol

                    What about people who ingest excess fat intake, sugar intake, and develop diabetes, heart disease, and a whole slew of other health problems?

                    How about people texting while driving causing accidents?

                    I believe those above reasons are among many others that should be added to the list. Wink

                      There's an old saying among recovering alcoholics, "fake it to you make it". If it makes a player feel good to shout out to the world that they

                      won the lottery, more power to them. Consider it a dress rehearsal for the real thing.

                          Why do we as lottery winners or soon to be winners need protection from the public and media when we win?? Please if and when I am finally a big jackpot winner...PLEASE publish my name...cause anyone I don't talk to on a regular basis need not start talking to me when I win....I don't care if they call me... heck I don't answer the phone now if i don't know the number anyways... So they're not gonna bother me and I don't need or want anonimity....If you don't know me then.. hey just cause I got money dosen't mean you need to get to know me.....I don't care if I hurt your feeling ...if you want money start with the foutune 500 richest list work your way down if everyone on that list says no to you then and only then can you come to me....and you know what I'll say then....NO!!!

                          It's not just the saying no, it's when they show up at your house because all of your personal info is not public.

                            The problem is old recovering lottery losers may never win a jackpot and often don't before going to their graves leaving their confused heirs looking for the money.

                              Really, confused heirs scrambling around like rats, looking for their entitlement money?

                              In my mind that would be an extra bonus, and frosting on the cake!!! Let em' look until they go to their graves.   Jester Laugh   Dead
