What questions do you think the media should ask during a jackpot fever?

We've all seen people replying to, "What will you do with the money", etc....

but maybe the media should ask questions like:

Do you know the odds?

Do you know what the second prize is?

Do you know what year it is?

Do you know what planet you are on?

etc.....

Your input?

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.

    Are you wearing your depends just in case you win and happen to be in a public place?

      Do you have a plan in place before you go collect or will you run down within the next 72 hrs and hold a press conference to let the entire planet know who you are ?

      How many fully automatic firearms with silencers do you plan to purchase ?

      Will you plan on moving to Colorado soon ?

      What are your thoughts on a transgender operation to hide your identity ?

        Are you aware of your hefty tax obligations if you win?

        Will you be okay with losing friends and possibly ending up enemies with some of your own family?

                Are you now, or have you ever been an addict of any kind? 

                Do you believe in get rich quick schemes?

                Has a relative ever tried to kill you?

                Are you currently broke because you've lived beyond your means and do you believe you'll never be broke again if you won a jackpot?

                Are you currently a member of a cult (scientology counts)

                Do you believe you can tell if a person is honest just by looking at them?

                Do you believe you can manage a jackpot-sized amount by yourself with no paid-for professional advice?

                Do you believe you 100 percent know the true character of your current friends and that your win will not affect your relationship? 

                Do you think replicas of samurai swords are good investments?

                If you've answered yes to any of these questions and you should happen to win, may we do a follow-up interview with you 3 years from the date of your win?

                  Do you realize that if you take the cash option for this drawing on the Powerball($142.5 million) that not only does the federal  government automatically take 25%($35,625,000.00) but they also take another 14.6 %($20,805,000.) because of the income tax bracket you are in for 2014 ???

                  Do you want to be on the newest edition of The Lottery Changed My Life and tell the world everything you bought , where you live and how much you have spent and/or given to family/friends ?

                  Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

                        Yea but you can appear on "the lottery changed my life" bragging and holding up your new "JP Morgan Chase Palladium Card" that is laser etched out of Palladium and 23 carat gold that has a replacement value of $1000 alone! Big Grin 

                        How did you get it?  "Well i had an extra 25 million laying around to let JP Morgan manage for me!  The card comes in quite handy these days with its no limit when it takes $100 grand just to refuel the jet or yacht!"Wink
