If you win a very large jackpot....or any jackpot for that matter there will be a certain amount of press that is going to come with that....but I think for the most part it a dream for most people and they just like hearing about people like us who win....that's the half normal ones anyways....I mean how many time do people want to hear about when your kids were born, or you being first in line at the new restaurant, establishment,whatever that's come to town....Winning the lottery is a story most people would love to hear as many times as you wanted to tell it......

    After the press is done, the first thing I will do is pay off my car and then second thing I will do is go into hiding

        Every other day on LP there is one thread or the other that addresses the adjustment process of a newly minted millionaire.

         

        I won't have a lottery story. Even if people knew I won I would give a cryptic smile in response to whatever they could possibly ask in this regard.

         

        They would quickly get the message that I am not prepared to talk about it. These types of conversations often lead to unrealistic and outrageous requests. Beyond that, I won't be a "poppy show" at parties.

              There should be a fictional version of these I won the lottery shows.

              People wouldn't care if it was real or not, it's all a big fantasy for most people anyways.

              At least the actors could do a much better job than some of those toothless, brainless, bonehead characters, that actually won the lottery.  Troll

                  Art Bell, former host of late night radio's Coast to Coast A.M., had a theory that lottery winners were actually time travelers.

                  If I absolutley had to go to a press conference I think I'd go with that story, might even call myself John Titor.

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

                  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.

                          A friend of mine and her husband won 19.5 million in another state's lottery about 10 years ago...after taking a lumpson and deducting taxes, i think they ended up with between 7-9 mil. (can't remember exactly)..anyway, it was big news for our town, and despite the money, they've kept their lives the same, except the husband had to end up selling his business to his nephew because all his customers stopped doing business with him after he won...(it was aa auto glass repair business)....guess his customers figured he didn't need the money....Downside to this is...he really loved what he did and it hurt his pride when he felt he couldn't make continue to make it successful....They live in the same house; however, "she" became different in many ways...ways I won't go into on here, but our friendship ended up dissolving....The husband stopped by my house a few weeks ago...hadn't seen him in 2 years....I asked how his wife was doing and he said all she does is sit on the back porch and smoke cigarettes all day. =(

                              Using Jack Whitaker as an example to make your point here isn't exactly proof that you are living on planet Earth.
