Do you get mad when others win the lottery?

YET.....My time for a large jackpot win is coming and I firmly believe that...just not sure what date that is going to be.  Yes Nod

        Holy cow, I had no idea it was that bad.  How disgusting.......can only imagine where that money goes.  The government and IRS is so out of control.  $224 million is still such a huge amount but good grief.  Didnt she win an original amount of over $600 million?  That net is SICKENING.

        You know that 570 million was the annuity and not what you actually get if you take the lump sum. 570  is the future value not the present value.

        I don't know how people play the lottery and still don't understand how the most basic thing like the prize works, no wonder most go broke.

          lol

          I meant what if she never passes?

          Then she is doomed to roam the earth with her trusty sword, fighting other immortals for the ultimate prize.  There can be only one!

            Why do they need to be down on their luck and really need it?  It doesn't matter to me if they are rich or poor.

              Yes I get PISSED LOL.

              Lottery is the only thing that's going to improve my life & I need it to be happy.

              After I win my record shattering jackpot then I don't care who wins.

               

              Oh & what makes me the angriest is how it's too easy for them to win.  I would go down in history as being the first winner who had a hard time winning.

                If you go into it expecting to win, you will be disappointed (or mad) every time.

                If you go into it hoping to win, it's not such a big deal when you don't win.

                It is only a GAME.

                CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                  Makes sense. Thanks, finally, a reasonable answer.

                    I'm a little jealous, but there's plenty more to go around.

                    Ditto. I just keep family birthdays in one set, and one QP set in play.  In fact, it terrifies me to think of winning several million, and get it publicized, and be targeted by all the criminals and folks that are desperate, and those that are just plain nuts!   It will be heart wrenching enough to deal with family and extended family and the point when I'd have to cut them off.  I just what to buy a house free and clear, have no debt and safely invest for the future. These idiots that get Maseratis and yachts and are broke in less than two years..now THAT gets me angry!

                    Seems so simple: three digits, 168 to one odds when boxed... all you have to do is pick the right ones!
