Your signature is so appropriate for this website.   Winning the lottery would be like Syd Barrett.  Total separation from reality, or at least the reality that one was once accustomed to.

Sad what happened to that guy, drugs and mental illness, real bad combo.

    In my best Mr. Mackey voice, DRUGS ARE BAD.   Yeah, he fell off the deep end.   Although I like the early Floyd stuff with him, the band definitely went on to bigger and better stuff without him.

      I agree, one of my favorites is Momentary lapse of reason, the album without Roger Waters.

      I love that song "On the turning away"

        Great song (and album).   Still prefer them with Roger Waters, but this was a very good album.   Memories....

          maybe they lost their tickets or something?

          Maybe they got good lawyers and claimed their prizes through trusts!

          We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                Hopefully they do claim through a trust.  But they haven't yet, because the trust has not come forward to claim the prize.

                    Probably relaxing on a beach letting the trust attorney handle the rest.

                      Go watch the movie "Waking Ned Devine" for your answer ;)

                      Haven't seen the movie, but just read about it on Wikipedia.   Will definitely watch it!

                        Maybe they live in states that allow winners to remain anonymous?

                         

                        Maryland is among six states in which winners' identities may be kept private. Its rules allows wary winners to hide their faces behind oversized checks and to use creative monikers instead of names in promotional photos posted on the lottery agency's website.

                        A Frederick couple, "Kathryn and Ricardo," opted to keep their last names hidden when they won $1 million in the Jan. 13 Powerball drawing featuring a record $1.58 billion jackpot. A Baltimore man who won $1 million in a recent instant ticket game publicly called himself only "Nittany Lions Fan," apparently reflecting his devotion to Penn State athletics.

                        Even if the winner lives in a state that allows winners to remain anonymous, the lottery would still show that the ticket was claimed.
