I dont know much about the curse of the lottery, (or show) not to say it doesnt exist or isnt real but wouldnt it be prompted by stupid decision making by the winners? Can we say David Lee Edwards or Abraham Shakespeare were cursed? I am very sorry for what happened to Abraham, Dee Dee Moore was just plain evil. Another is that young mother in South Carolina with the drug dealing boyfriend that she posted bail for. We all know how that story is going to end if someone doesnt step in to wake her up. She really fooled me, I thought she knew she was given a blessed gift and would do good but that doesnt seem to be the case.
The only lottery winner who has ever had cursed winnings was Hurley from the show Lost. Jack Whitakker wasn't cursed, neither was Bud Post, nor Edwards nor even Shakespeare.
The only difference between Shakespeare and the others was that he didn't intentionally/knowingly make godawful decisions. They were still bad, but he didn't know they were bad, so it's hard to blame him for his own mistakes. I think the rest of us know there's a lot we don't know about the tax laws and managing 8 figures and so we know enough to get ourselves educated in money management and find good advisors. Shakespeare didn't have the mental capacity to know he needed to do that.
You can watch Curse of the Lottery on Dailymotion. They have a two parts. Not one of those people were cursed. Every single one of those people made more stupid decisions than you could possibly imagine.
I might wake up early and go running. I might also wake up and win the lottery.
The odds are about the same.
