        I Agree! If you don't have basic money skills now. You will be cursed by the people who are more financially savvy. The lottery player who was killed in Florida could not read and he did not know how many zeros were in a thousand. A con artist dream. Doomed before he ever won.

          Perhaps filling out a play slip should be required for valid play?

            Winning the big jackpot is a blessing that has the capacity to destroy the undisciplined.

              Yep, many who win, couldn't handle money properly to begin with.

              Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              For a lead role in a cage?

                  Life comes full circle doesn't it? My parents gave me an allowance to manage my minor affairs as a teenager. Now I am an older man, after winning the lottery a boardroom of advisers will put me back on an allowance? As a child I didn't have a choice, but it takes a man to heed to sound counsel when he has the power to do otherwise!

                      I would bet Todd would appreciate it if members wouldn't repeat the graphics for every comment.

                          Unfortunately I think that most of the people who win the lottery and piss it all away are typically just simple people and suffer less from "The Lottery Curse" and more from "The Curse of Stupidity"...

                            Yeah what really ticked me off about that is his mother knew he couldnt read and she still blamed him winning on his downfall....I know he was grown but that doesnt have to stop you from being a parent to your kids...never stopped my mom with my sibs and me LOL....I still remember telling her I was going into the Army and she was like oh heck your're not either...LOL I eventually won...luckily I set up my physical and everything B4 I told her LOL

                              I don't believe in a curse, I believe in a personal responsibility.
                              I don't believe in a blessing, I believe in individual determination, hard work and personal accomplishment.
