Would you be invisibly upset or angry if the next 5 PB winners were in their 80's?

no, it doesn't matter what the age is.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    No, I hope they are all older than 84.  It gives me hope.  But I hope I don't have to wait another 40 years before I win. ;)

      noise-gate,

      What would upset you or make you more angry, if the next 5 winners were in their 80s, or the next 5 winners were 19 yr olds who had never played before? (Or anyone who had never played before- I said 19 because that's exactly what happened to a girl in Georgia a few years back).

      And why does anyone winning upset you?

      Coin Toss- your response to my original question has strayed somewhat And why does anyone winning upset you?

      my response is " Huh?"

      How did you draw that conclusion based on my question? Need more coffee?

      Yawn

        Really?- l have seen a question asked here about whether its a " blessing or a Curse for someone of that age" to have won the lottery etc etc.. If that is not " disbelief- what is?

        l wonder if people think that the lottery ought to be won by persons in their 20- 60's as if winning at the ripe old age of 80 plus is an impediment? My take on the matter is that it does not matter what age you are in order to be a winner.

        noise-gate,

        I would take the 'blessing or curse' question to be just a question, it doesn't imply disbelief regarding the age of the winner.

        Like many posts here on LP after a big win, reading between the lines what they are really saying is:

        "@^&*( @!#$% #$&^** why wasn't it me!"

        Won't it be real interesting when the aliens land and one of them hits a jackpot? Imagine the reaction!

        As for this,

        "Coin Toss- your response to my original question has strayed somewhat And why does anyone winning upset you?

        my response is " Huh?"

        How did you draw that conclusion based on my question? Need more coffee?"

        Who here gave this thread the title:

        That implies that it upset you, nicht var?

        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.

            This would suggest that your understanding of the English language is different from mine. I get irritated when unfairness is in play.For iinstance when Miles was robbed of his $5 mil ticket by the Ashkar bros, some suggested that it was his stupidity that got him into the mess etc. I posted pics in response to another elderly person winning the PB- l am all for fairness. Perhaps on some occasions the connecting of the Dots are a stretch.

              Because of the odds against winning the jackpot are so huge, I'm neither visibly or invisibly upset when I don't win the jackpot. The age, race, or station in life of the jackpot winner won't change the fact I didn't win it so there is no reason for me to be upset when I find out who won.

              Are you invisibly upset when you learn you didn't win a 175 million to 1 jackpot?

                noise-gate,

                Nice attempted jab but my understanding of the English language is simply that when someone starts a thread titled:

                Would you be invisibly upset or angry if the next 5 PB winners were in their 80's?

                they themselves are upset with it.

                Hope if you hit a jackpot in your 80s it doesn't upset people!

                          I Agree!

                          Ditto

                           

                          I hardly even close to being upset when someone else wins. When it is my time, it is my time. However if there are several 80+ yr olds winning in a row, I'd think about handing my $5 over to someone 80+ to buy my tickets.

                            Would it make you feel BETTER if I said the old bag had no business being out of the house, much less cutting in line and getting a $590 million winner as a reward for her rude behavior?
