    I think it will be much harder on the mail carrier than myself.  I will sort through it, recycle the majority of it and save some of the most outrageous ones.  I would not answer any of the letters.

        HI Saylorgirl,  Thank You for your tip and advice.    The mail carrier might give you a note that you have undeliverable mail at a certain Post Office.  The larger the jackpot the more mail you will get.

          I believe you can have the P.O. hold your mail for up to a month and for longer than that you can use their premium forwarding service for a weekly fee. (if you're going to get out of Dodge until the heat dies down) I also think you can do a return service (return to sender) on each piece of mail, but I expect that wouldn't make you very popular down at your local post office. (Personally, I wouldn't want to make them mad, the whole "going postal" thing, you know)  Check the USPS website for more information.

                        noise-gate,

                        There's a real life news reporter that looks very much like that guy at the post office I MIB2! I thank the same robot or prop used in MIB2 was also a cab driver in total Recall or one of those movies.

                        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.

                          Simple,

                           

                          If I am bored I would take any mail/offer from one person or company and mail them the junk mail from another 

                          providing it comes in a prepaid envelope.

                           

                          Sort of like I do now with credit card offers. I send them coupons from my local mailer that I do not need.

                          Now their offer just cost them money.

                           

                          Otherwise toss that Sh*t

                            Luckily for me my state allows lottery winners to claim their prizes anonymously. So if the universe decides that it would like me to be rich I'll be able to enjoy my winnings in peace.

                              Coin Toss, 

                                The cab driver in Total Recall was the "Doctor" in Star Trek Voyager. At least that was his voice. I just saw Arnold Schwarznagger in Rise of the Machines. The end of that movie was total nuclear war.  Weapons we use to protect ourselves were used to destroy the world.
