I wonder if anyone read those numbers, thought they hadn't won, and threw away a winning ticket?

This is what they get for making me wait 10 minutes to buy my Coke Zero at the 7/11.

Oh the heartbreak. I'd have to take a week off.

They're still bothering with a physical newspaper, do they know about the lottery website?

And he isn't trying to sue anyone over it? Really? Huh. Well I hope he does win one day then.

I think it would sting much worse knowing that your numbers came up the day before you played them.

This is why I can't understand people that play the same numbers. You pretty much guarantee that you have to play them every time because I don't know about you, but the one time I didn't they would get picked and I'd have to kill everyone and then myself.

Oh, so sad, someone doesn't get a windfall of millions they don't really deserve.

No cancer, death, or rape in this story, so let's save that img1.fark.net tag for really sad things, K?

Oh god, I don't even want to think about that.

And really, how sad is it that I was happy to read that this couple isn't suing the newspaper? We're such a ridiculously litigious society that I'm almost shocked when someone has some sense and keeps the lawyers at bay.

"[It was] a case of going from rags to riches and back to rags again," Jim Sprague told KOAA-TV.

No. It was a case of thinking you were suddenly wealthy then realizing you were mistaken. You never went from rags to anything. You stayed rags the whole time.

Thinking you won $4M because of a misprint, and a punch in the neck.

I dont have too much going for me, so I'd probably just off myself if that happened to me.

It would be like if you were in prison and you were told you got a pardon, only to touch the door handle when they tell you they made a mistake and that Julievanhammer is getting released.

FML.

Thanks. But I'm confused.
If I'm you from another life. Who is the me in this life? And who were you in that other life because that other life is now me in this one? Was the me in this life really the you in the other? If so, where did I put the car keys?

I'd, like, sue the newspaper for 5 million because it's the American way.

How much are shattered dreams really worth?

Sorry, should have said "That would be almost as big a let-down as AFTERMATH of the 2008 election."

Is that better?

Something tells me, StanTheMan, that your cynicism and "realistic" attitude wouldn't be so benevolently applied to the same situation if that were you.

The same thing everyone else does: "Pain and suffering"... don't worry, if that wouldn't hold up, I'm sure there would be a lawyer somewhere that could make something stick.

Witty Comment: Something tells me, StanTheMan, that your cynicism and "realistic" attitude wouldn't be so benevolently applied to the same situation if that were you.


So, the cynicism standard on Fark is that you must feel "sad" for people who didn't win the lottery.

Sorry, there are real tragedies in the world. Maybe we need a "bummer" tag. What tag do we use when a child of a Farker dies of cancer?
