Can someone ask him what they do with unclaimed funds.

How about you post that question on Monday?

    Robots should be picking the numbers!  Or put the 1-69 for powerball on a sheet of paper with chicken feed and let a chicken decide the newest millionaire.  The biggest holes in the paper are the winnings numbers.  Anything else is verbage.

    How about them cowboys!

        well..yes to a certain point...we have computers that can quick pick our numbers...but I would caution against the use of Farm animals ...they do not have

        the Respect for numbers written on paper that is needed....chickens...dogs...cats...pigs...cows...have a poor record choosing winning numbers...I know this

        from experience....trust me....

        Now I use the most ....the best....a sure winner each time...method   ....The Force....

        see you in the winners circle......Cheers

          I think you already asked it.

          Maybe Todd can forward it or someone else can ask.

            This is a true story, I purchased several scratch-offs for the wife a few years back.  She scattered them

            on the floor and then set her cat in the middle of them and asked the cat which one was a winner.  The

            cat sniffed around on several of the tickets then settled on one and started to do the cat nudge and roll.

            That ticket was a winner.  The wife then asked the cat again and BAM the next one was a winner.  None

            of the remaining tickets won anything.  True story, it seems that the winning tickets had a smell to them

            that was not on any of the other tickets.

              What?  How much more random could it be?  Respect has nothing to do with how a chicken would poke a hole.  Really!  The subject of humans rigging the lotto only shows why this would work.  Whatever the result would be final no cheating involved.

                      I agree w/ CARBOB,

                          These are the countries that do not tax lottery winnings. Why can't we be on that list?

                          ...But there are some countries where you don't pay any tax on the win at all. These countries pay out a lump sum immediately, tax-free, to all lottery winners:

                          Australia
                          Canada
                          Finland
                          Germany
                          Ireland
                          Italy
                          Liechtenstein
                          New Zealand
                          United Kingdom.

                          The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                          Don't just think outside the box, crush it.
