moothemagiccow: Also whenever I read a tragic lottery story, it always begins with them accepting the lump sum. I'm not saying there's a curse, but who the hell takes the lump sum?


The way I understand it, the lump sum amount is determined by a present-value calculation based on the amount won, the number of payments, the length of time, and an interest rate of zero. So someone who takes the lump sum and invests it should end up with more money than they actually won, assuming even a nominal investment return.

But, really, who am I kidding? Most people take the lump sum so they can blow the money that much faster. People who have the financial discipline to invest a big lottery win are not likely to buy lottery tickets in the first place.

Someone who would like to see the bulk of their winnings before age 60.

poor bastard. The sad part is someone had to prod the coroner to find the damned poison. Came back clean the first time. If you dont properly autopsy a recent lottery winner, who warrants a thorough examination?

Generation_D: Ask anyone who's been on a

conference call with South Asian engineers or project managers. Oh yes this was performed exactly as expected, our engineering team encountered no difficulty whatsoever and is on time completely.

Right, because I've never heard that sort of BS from American contractors.

Bear in mind that when U.S. firms outsource, they outsource primarily to reduce cost.  They're not interested in India's best, or the best anywhere for that matter.  They're interested in exploiting the cheapest design sweatshop the world has to offer.  With that sort of agenda I really don't think it matters in which country the work is done.  India isn't the problem here.

It's almost like top talent demands a premium and cheap labor is incompetent wherever you go.  Zounds, don't tell management; they may get the vapors!

/ don't call me Zounds

They were both poisoned. She spent the last few years building up an immunity to cyanide powder.But unfortunately she fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous of which is "never get involved in a land war in Asia" and "Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line", but only slightly less well-known is that "you don't kill your husband BEFORE he collects his lottery winnings."

Psycat: In case anybody wants to know...

viricide = husband killing
uxoricide = wife killing

Unless you live on the South Mountain in Nova Scotia, where technically fratricide, parricide or sororicide are equally applicable.
Not that those folks speak much latin.
They're even unsure about English. Think about the nastiest, most inbred group in W. Virginia. Now put it a thousand miles north and a lot colder, and double the amount of inbreeding and you have the Golers.

I would. I don't trust the state to keep my money safe. I'll take care of that myself. Arrrrggggg....

Wait. I agree that she probably did it, but what does her being Indian have to do with anything?
