I'm disappointed that they don't have the Powerball in California, because somebody had just won the Mega Millions $49 million jackpot. If I had won it, I would have my cousin (who's a financial planner) to help be invest it.

Maybe I need to start a business...
I'll call it, um, POWERBALL HELPER.

Any Californians who want Powerball tickets set up an account with me. I buy them the tickets and ship them by overnight mail.
However, if you win, you are contractually bound to split the cash with you-know-who!

Not to worry. I just heard on the news that the powers-that-be in Ca. voted to have Powerball in that state. Beginning in April if I heard correctly.

After I win, I'll be hiring an actor to play me on this message board. Maybe James Franco? smile

Oh well...my "POWERBALL HELPER" business idea was just shot down.
But I'll keep on buyin' my ticket twice a week, and when I win, Y'ALL ARE INVITED TO MY PLACE FOR THE PARTY OF YOUR LIFE!

big grin

By the way David...James Franco may not be as good looking as Guy Madison, but I happen to think he's really cool.

By God, can you imagine if any of those numbers had won???

It was indeed a nice gesture by Christopher. And had it been me and a ticket won, it likely would have gone like this: "Sorry David, your ticket didn't win, but mine did!" Then, upon getting home: "Pack your bags, honey, I just won the lottery!" "Really? For what kind of weather should I pack?" "Doesn't matter, long as you're outta here by midnight." Rimshot? Anyone?

I just played the Powerball when they initiated it in California. I played, and no results!! I want to win it so I can get my cousin, who's a financial planner, to help me invest it.

Personally, Christopher, if both of them were standing in front of me, grinning......

I'd be torn. smile

I bought a ticket.

Two bucks? For a measly $40 million in return?? I'm glad I don't do this sort of spending very often! smile

Oh well, at least you can buy it for a ticket for two more rows of numbers.

To the OP. These kinds of articles come up all the time. It is almost completely urban legend. It is a balm to the rest of us who are still slaving away to find out that those big lotto winners aren't really any happier after all.

What little actual fact gathering I have found on this topic is this - if you are generally a happy person before you strike it rich, you will generally be a happy person after you strike it rich. If you are a depressed, angry person before, you will be a rich depressed, angry person after the win.

This makes a great deal of sense to me.

And I'd rather be a rich depressed, angry person than a poor depressed, angry person. smile

Somebody in Florida is $600 million richer, the biggest winner yet.

I wonder if there will be drama around the ticket. Remains to be seen!

I saw clips of people standing in line and even facing heavy traffic to get a ticket. If anyone on this board won, please look up all the unreleased score request threads and re-recording candidates. big grin

I live in Union City and not one of the winning numbers on my ticket showed up!!! And somebody from Florida wins it? Why couldn't it have been somebody in (Northern) California? Only one person in San Jose won the $1,000,000 (which you win if you get five numbers)!!! Not bad, but more work needs to be done!!!
