In case you were wondering, I was not the one. Off to work tomorrow. It is fun to imagine how your life would change, At least in New Hampshire you can still claim it anonymously.

Lucky person. Or people.

If they can keep it they won't have to worry about what's ahead. Well, not like we dirt people.

I actually feel bad for people who win big lotteries like that. Their lives are probably the worse for it if you extend the view out to how it impacts their families.

On the other hand, winning a paltry few million dollars a week later when the vultures are flying off to circle elsewhere would be OK.

I have cooked up an elaborate plan for how to collect a lottery check and still keep a semblance of normality. I suppose step one would be to buy a ticket but as that does not measurably change my chances of becoming Scrooge McDuck rich I never get around to doing this.

With money like that they can buy Hunter and still have money left over for Congress too!

Were I to win the Lottery (it will never happen as I never play), my goal would be to disappear as quickly as possible, live quietly, and be quietly forgotten - and live the rather inexpensive, simple life I would like.

Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist. When your eyes light on it, it is gone, for suddenly it sprouts wings, flying like an eagle toward heaven. (Proverbs 23:4-5)

It seems that it doesn't end well for most of those big winners.

We always talk about what we'll do; but never get around to buying the ticket either.

I recall one of my teachers in high school circa 1968 making the comment that when a society or state starts supporting a lottery that indicates that that entity has admitted that the average person has given up hope of making it big on their own merits.
