Luck DOESN'T exist. In fact, as of this moment we're already fortunate to be part of this beautiful journey - that is to Live. Our odds were EXTREME. Think about the many times ur daddy jerked off prior to shooting YOU as a sperm?lol. And one day, you still Happened, I mean if you're reading this.


I picture GOD, the higher being as indeed having a lot to do with who should win and who shouldn't.


Let's think about the slowest possible value in Time. That is, nanoseconds. It takes 1 nanosecond or 1/1,000,000,000 seconds for light to travel 3 Feet of distance (speed of light reduced to its lowest terms as you can see). Therefore, assuming that GOD has this almighty power in his hands and can SLOW down time enough so that he or someone can choose the numbers being drawn and he is able to see the balls moving in slow motion while on the air chamber, not taking in consideration that this might be already planned thousands of years ahead of our capacities. Likewise, humanly think about setting video frames in slow motion - say you're are going to be shot by a bullet, and if you were to slow down time to its minimal capacity, then guess what, you will be able to avoid being shot. So, if this can be well simulated by a digital device, the fact that us humans don't have the ability for so, doesn't mean GOD cannot prevent such event from happening.


Evidently, from GOD's eyes, a lottery air machine blowing air and mixing up balls is surely similar to a scintilla sperm trying to reach its goal.

    I thought Plancks time was the smallest interval of time? Isn't 1 Planck time equal to 5.39056e-35 nanoseconds?  Of course, I can be completely wrong considering Quantum Mechanics physicist I am not.

      Concerning my daddy, I now know why they say I'm a chip off the ole block!

      I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

      Just to make things better. Thanks for this amazing information. I knew there had to be another value lower than an actual nano second, I just didn't know which it was.

        JONATHAN VARGAS – SOUTH CAROLINA – 17/05/2008

        Jonathan Vargas, a graduate from Airport High School, Gaston, South Carolina, was only nineteen years old when he won the Powerball prize of $35.3 million on the 17th May 2008.

        Vargas said it was God who gave him the winning numbers and he was not going to let him down.


        VARGAS SAYS HE OWES HIS POWERBALL PRIZE TO GOD

        Jonathan said that on Saturday 17th May, he was working on the construction site where he is employed as a construction worker when “this weird feeling came over me.  He said someone told him the Powerball results  for that night - in his head.  The only piece of paper he had, was a paper napkin, so he quickly wrote down the numbers and then rang his mother so she could write them down somewhere safe, and he would go and buy a lottery ticket later.  Vargas bought his Powerball ticket from Cayce Raceway Station, together with petrol and an iced tea.

        The numbers which Vargas heard were 12, 14, 15, 21, 43, and the Powerball of 30. The first five numbers are the ages which his siblings and his mother will turn this year.  The Powerball was an expiry date on a juice carton.

        Vargas only listened to the first three numbers of the Powerball results and he knew he had won.   “When I got to the third number, I knew I had it, I was jumping up and down. I was outside the door on my grass thanking God.  I didn’t even hear the rest but I knew I had it.”

         

        PRESS CONFERENCE

        At the press conference, Jonathan Vargas appeared a mature young man and said that “Investing money was very important. I have my family to protect and help secure their futures.”  He says, “Right now, there’s no real plan in the works.”  He intends to employ a lawyer and financial adviser and use his aunt as his accountant.  He has opted to take the cash payout of $17.3 million.

        Vargas wants to set up trust funds for his siblings – three brothers and a sister.  He says he also wants to honour his mother, by buying her a new house.  At the moment they live in a house with four bedrooms and two bathrooms in Gaston.  Vargas says he will definitely be donating money to his local church and is looking at going to college to further his education, something he would never have been able to do before winning his South Carolina Powerball  prize.

        Both Vargas’ parents are unemployed and he has now said that he will not be going back to work.  He said, “You never ask the Lord why you are blessed.  I’m confident in him just as much as he’s confident in me, just believe.” Vargas added, “I have a mixture of feelings. Scary.  Exciting. Still shaking.  I’m still telling my mother to pinch me.”


        THREATS

        Jonathan Vargas said that he will be employing a bodyguard as he has been getting a lot of threats.  He is worried that receiving a Powerball prize as big as this one, will bring unsavoury people out of the woodwork. “I’ve been getting a lot of warnings from friends I trust that the word is going around. ‘People are plotting on you,’” said Varga.


        DR. PHIL

        Jonathan Vargas has been invited onto the Dr. Phil show. Producers have approached him and would like him to talk to people about what it is like to win the big Powerball prize.  He is not sure whether he will accept the offer, “I don’t want too much exposure in my neighbourhood,” he said.


        SLIPPERY SLOPE

        Perhaps Jonathan Vargas was not as mature as he appeared at the lottery press conference.  When later interviewed by the Tampa Tribune, he told them that he liked to party hard. He said he was extremely ambitious which was why the partying didn’t stop him from succeeding.

        Vargas said his real loves in life were hot women and professional wrestling.

        Vargas decided to buy a TV production company which would be used to combine his two loves and produce a TV show.  He called it Wrestlicious.  The TV show featured attractive women wrestling in staged fights.  The show first aired in 2010.  Vargas was asked whether he thought this venture was a good way to spend his Powerball prize, “I think it was.  Time will tell of course.  It certainly has been an awesome learning experience.  Best case, we have a huge hit.  Worst case, I have a tax write-off.”  The show flopped and rumour has it that Jonathan Vargas is now broke.

        ----

        Cynthia Stafford is an avid reader who believes in the power of the mind.  In 2007, she decided that she wanted to win $112 million.  Following the advise of author Joseph Murphy, Stafford wrote the figure “$112 million” over and over again.  She meditated on the figure and visualized what her life would be like after winning.  She also wrote down everything  in detail, from the house and car she would buy to the charities she would donate to.  Stafford frequently reviewed and focused on her list.

        After four months of visualizing a lottery win and what she would do with the winnings, Stafford won the California Mega Millions jackpot in May 2007.  The amount she won was $112 million – exactly what she had envisioned.  Stafford believes the key to her big win was that she created a written plan and visualized what her world would be like if she had already won.

        Stafford followed the advise of author Joseph Murphy, who said, “Live in the emboidiment of your desire, and your thought and feeling will soon be manifest.”  That is a fundamental principal of the Law of Attraction: feel the feeling of your desire already attained.   Neville said it best:

        “You must assume the feeling of the wish fulfilled until your assumption has all the sensory vividness of reality. You must imagine that you are already experiencing what you desire. That is, you must assume the feeling of the fulfillment of your desire until you are possessed by it and this feeling crowds all other ideas out of your consciousness.” – Neville Goddard

        After winning the $112 million, Stafford began giving a lot of it away. After donating $1 million to the Geffen Playhouse to fund an art program for children, she is becoming known as one of the biggest philanthropists in Los Angeles.

          One could ask the question " Why would a deity answer some prayers and not others?" Could Mr Whittaker or David Lee Edwards have said a prayer before buying their ticket, cause I did read where Jack said he was going to present a check to his church, obviously believing to some extent that God had answered his prayer. As someone who had posted earlier stated " what of pedophiles winning the lottery,  what does that say about their deity? "

          I am not familiar with God stopping a missile- when was this?

          David Lee Edwards did say a little prayer pleading to God for help with his lottery win.  He talked about it in his interview on the show about how the lottery changed their lives.

          Atheist converts after mock prayer to win 1 Million dollars, is an article covered on LP from 2011.

          Another member mentions Jason Vargas, his story changed a little bit over time.  I remember him saying he heard a voice, or in a dream the phrase "Your family will bring you great wealth" was said.  Hence why the numbers were the ages of his family members.  It doesn't matter to me how it happened, just an interesting bit of details to me.

            Cynthia Stafford better be careful. The jackpot was 112 mil - not her take home. She took the lump sum and after taxes she probably netted around 42 mil.  She said she split it with her brother and father, too. She purchases the most butt ugly and expensive cars -  Bentley convertibles - baby blue and orange.  She won in 2007 so if she hasnt gone bankrupt by now, she must be doing something right.

              I sounded too critical of Ms. Stafford.  She's enjoying her money so more power to her.

                For Cynthia Stafford. I did the calculations. CA has no state tax on the lotto, so she would have gotten about $44.5 million after all the federal income tax is paid from the lump sum of $ 66 million. If she split it between her brother and father then it would have been around $15 million each. And there was probably some tax on that also. gift tax ? ........A far cry from $112 million.

                  Cynthia Stafford-  she's the gal that sat next to Dick lustig on some morning show where he went on about " buying QP's are a bad idea "... and Cyn responded - well " l won with a QP." l had heard that she put some of her money into a movie that went nowhere.

                    Interestingly, Ms Stafford says she meditated on the amount she wanted to win as oppose to her numbers wining.  She, her father, and her brother bought $2 quick pick for Mega Millions.

                      I Agree!Tell you what Redd, pull the interview from youtube with Richard Lustig/ Cynthia Stafford-  Robin Roberts was the Host for that particular segment.

                        That's her. I'm guessing the money is drying up since she just dropped off the map. No more bragging or TV interviews that she normally  does.

                          I think God has a helping hand, if we win money;, I know some day's; I feel luckier than other's. I haven't won , lately though.

                           

                          But patience is needed, on day's when you want to win!
