 Every time the episode that features you re-airs you can expect more mail, calls, email. Family, friends, and strangers will bother you again.

 Even if you do not go on "LCML" you will be a target. Your favorite two-letter word will be "NO".Cheers

    Well said, Best to lay low.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      I agree. It makes as much sense as those people who've won and have then publicly claimed that winning was a curse, but who then still buy tickets. 

      On the one hand, I can't stand those who say they've had to move or hire security because they are in fear for their lives, but then do everything they can to keep themselves in the limelight. On the other hand, I'm glad they love the attention that much because it allows us to learn from their mistakes.

      When I win, I'd probably do a blog under an assumed name. I won't disclose where I reside or anything that would be identifiable, but I would like to put information out there re each step I took and advice I received. Tell candidly about the good and the bad and answer questions for others.

      I always thought that is what I would do, too, Teddi. I'd do a blog for LP outlining all experience from finding out I won to what I do in the first year or so with the winnings.. the good, the bad, and the ugly - not to mention the beautiful.

      BUT, I think I'd send the blog post to Todd to create an account and post so the techies here could not trace me through IP or some such techie thingie. Then I'd continue to post as me, piaceri, and ooo and awww over the blog posts.

        You've got that right, Sully. Far better to 'go to the mattresses' than to go on TLCML.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        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.

          LOL. That's actually a good idea. Think Todd would go for it?

          I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

          The odds are about the same.

            I would love to do a phone interview with Todd, but that is about it.
