Why aren't more LP winners and near winners sharing their stories?

With over 50,000 members, LP'ers probably have had a few jackpot winners and hundreds or near winners.  Could it be that they just don't want to engage in the kinds of conversations they fear their stories might generate?

Since I joined I have missed being a multi-millionaire twice by matching  5of6 in Ohio's 6/49 games.  There much be hundreds of such stories among us LP members.

    Maybe they just leave and go enjoy their winnings, instead of staying and talking about winning?

        I often wonder why more people who win don't end up here looking for other people who have won?

                With you making four posts within seven minutes to say what could have been said in one, you should reach elite status in no time. Wink

                      Believe me, if I hit a major jackpot, the last thing I'd do is post my story online.

                      The lottery is NOT a tax on the poor.  By calling it a tax, you are calling it mandatory, which is what taxes are.  But the lottery is NOT mandatory, therefore calling it a tax highly inaccurate.

                          I wish I had a story to tell, now DH he got 5/6 on the Texas Lotto December 18, 2010. the numbers were

                          16-17-23-31-38-46 he had 16-17-23-31-38-54 it was on the last line. I told him not to stop and buy any more tickets he told me he was thirsty when we were in Gainesville so he made one more last stop and grabbed some tickets. I was fussing at him all the way home to Oklahoma(LOL).

                          Of course I will never fuss at him againWink

                              If ... when I win big, I will stay under the radar!  I would never mention my big win(s).

                              I would quietly fade into the background!

                                                            I would still keep my LP membership and post every now and then.
