Considering how niggers murdered that one guy for his lottery money, I can't blame her one bit.

You'd have to move immediately or be swarmed by blue lipped pavement apes oooking and eeeking for some gibs or just trying to rob, rape and kill you.

Good. This is the right way to win the lottery. You don't want your community and family to know you are loaded. Money brings out the beggar in everyone and ruins your relationships.

This woman won half a billion dollars. She's going to be known to people at some point. Being secretly rich is like playing Clark Kent everywhere you go. Eventually the facade cracks. By then she'll know who are her true friends. One hopes.

I don't think someone with half a bil CAN have true friendships. Probably not even a true relationship with a spouse. Not unless their friends/spouse also extremely wealthy, but a filthy lottery winning peasant would never be accepted by people in that class. It's actually kind of sad.

You better believe I'd still take the fucking money though.

Take the money and run.

Buy anyone you care about a house somewhere undisclosed under your new or a false name. Buy all the precious metals you can get your hands on. Lock them away someplace only you know about. Multiple locations. Invest in smart things.

Use remaining "fuck it" money to disappear and have a good time.

Is there a reason why we need to know who wins the powerball at all?

[–] Womb_Raider 0 points 7 points (+7|-0) ago 

Yes, to know it isn't a scam.

I upvoted both of you because you're both right. Making winners public has a good change of ruining their lives but not doing so leads to scamming all that money. -.-

It's already been proven to be rigged. Too much temptation, ya know.

Because hiring an actor to take a picture and giving him a random name is total proof it isn't a scam

This is a fake story to stir up interest for the flagging lottery and to get more dumb people's money.

From 1984:

“The Lottery, with its weekly pay-out of enormous prizes, was the one public event to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned, even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory. There was a whole tribe of men who made their living simply by selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had nothing to do with the Lottery, which was managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out, the winners of the big prizes being nonexistent persons.”

There are view screens in everyone's living room and they teach 2+2=5 to kids all day long. It's at least worth a consideration as to what else this book has in it.

The standard normie thing is "Wow, look how well Orwell predicted the future DURRDURHURR..." Orwell was an insider privy to a plan, just like Huxley. They didn't predict shit, they knew the plan. Then they told us the plan.

If any read here of lottery winners gone bad it is an evil story. Many go very bad or evil comes to them. There is no State in the USA who should require public disclosure. None. It is offering the devil himself into your home.
