Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
Its rigged they never assign anyone that will actually invest the money wisely. They have an entire cadre of accountants, investors, etc like vultures that descend on the winner, so it has to be a patsy that does not know what to do with the $$.

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
In the UK, a couple won £26 million on the Euro-millions Lottery.

That's in a tax-free lump-sum, BTW!

In the USA, a lotto winner will get about 1/3 of the advertised amount, by declining an annuity (rip-off), and paying the IRS their blood-money.

Interesting, I was also thinking about that. Guys from my office are buying tickets, but I never ever met someone who won something serius.

I know someone who won 3M. He is a friend of the family. Some people have more luck than others I guess. I have never won more than $7 and do not play much either.

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
When I see that the lottery is up to some ungodly amount like; $225 million and One person "Seemingly" wins it, I can't help but wonder what happens to that winner?

You don't see them writing a book or going on TeeVee to become the next star of the new reality show "How I Became A Millionaire"

And of course, my Skeptic brain says "Nobody won-- it's a scam.

I'm more prone to ask myself where that $225 Million went to and why can't they give some of that to me.

The winner is just some Joe Blow from Cuntlick County, Ark., who is wheeled out before the cameras to accept his check, then is quietly 911-ized, shortly after.

The monet goes to some sinister Jewbank, in Israel!

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
There have been a few winners that were smart with their winnings, they have had TV shows on them before...most end up blowing their money and running out...that fucking idiot from West Virginia won over $200 million after taxes and ended up losing it all because of family, friends, and whatnot...

I'd disappear off the radar if I won the lottery, no one, not even family would know what the fuck happened to me for a long, long time.

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
Well, now that I think of it, I remember a couple I once knew who won the lottery. This was in MI in the 80s when there was a bad recession. They worked as cooks at Denny's (I worked there too at the time), and they won $1 million. It was strange because they wouldn't say one word about it except that they had no intention of quitting their jobs as Denny's cooks. They were still working there when I quit.

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
If I won the lottery I would blow it so fast on drugs and OD within 6 months. Then the goverment could take the rest of my money and use it however they wanted, because I would be too fucked up to make a will. And have no dependents.

So looks like im winning the jackpot tonight!

* if they aim for people that blow the cash.. but honestly i would have fun before 2012.

Re: Does Anybody Really Win The Lottery?
Yes, my step-son's in-laws won $27 million dollars. Screwed up family IMHO. Some of them already near bankruptcy. Others fighting for "their" money NOW instead of over twenty years. Glad I never got involved in it all. Nothing like lots of money to bring out the paranoia.

Friend of mine won 100k in 1999. Put it all into a company and became a half partner. A few years later bought out the other partner and has been running the company ever since. He's done very well financially and has made back his original 100k investment a few times over.
