"Maybe I hired too many Ninjas."

"I should have rented the Shaolin warriors at discount."

        When they claim their win less than 24 hours after winning a huge jackpot.

        When they say they're going to spend until they drop because they only live once.

        When they don't plan for the future.

        If they're an addict of any kind.

          When having won multi-millions a jackpot winner goes to Vegas to 'really' win some money.

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

          Lep

          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.

                Everything mentioned so far and let me add buying a lot of very expensive cars.

                Anybody ever get th idea that sometimes the Lottery Fairy lets some people win jackpots who she knows won't be able to handle it and does it to entertain herself?

                Scared

                Ain't that the darn truth.- Those words SHOULD apply to brains, specifically in here at time.

                Consider the following scenario..When they were handed out brains.

                Supreme One: " should we give this brain to subject A, or this " Other" Brain to subject A or B? You know only too well that l do not need your input on this, but lets have fun with this, shall we, what say you?

                .. " Let's swap those brains around and see how things turn out...should be a riot.

                Supreme One: Will do- if they screw it up from the onset, might as well leave them the way they are....( did one of you guys not say " you cant fix stupid?)

                  1.  Rushed to lottery HQs next day to claim winnings without any lawyer
                  2.  Did "nothing" to claim it anonymously.
                  3.  States to the media: "I'm gonna share my winnings with family and friends".  The vultures will finish him.

                  It won't last.
