Popcorn Johnny: So after taxes he has about 1.2 million and has probably spent that much on the lottery over the course of his life.
Gecko Gingrich: Popcorn Johnny: So after taxes he has about 1.2 million and has probably spent that much on the lottery over the course of his life.$65 a day, every day, for 50 years? Unlikely.
Captain Dan: Unlikely things happen every day. At any given moment, something with a trillion-to-one odds against is probably happening, since more than a trillion things are happening.Unfortunately, because most people are statistically illiterate, they won't brush this off as an incredible fluke, and instead they'll probably ask this guy what his secret is.
eldie: Gecko Gingrich: Popcorn Johnny: So after taxes he has about 1.2 million and has probably spent that much on the lottery over the course of his life.$65 a day, every day, for 50 years? Unlikely.I think it's quite likely that this gentleman could have thrown a lot of his winnings back into buying more lottery and scratch off tickets. There are so many lottery drawings and scratch off tickets in $10 or $20 denominations that one can easily spend $65 or more a day. It's still very fluky that even if he spent mega dollars daily on the lottery that he won 4 big prizes. Hope it doesn't inspire more people to play more every day than they already are in the hopes of winning the big prize because they'll just be throwing their money away.

Popcorn Johnny: Gecko Gingrich: $65 a day, every day, for 50 years? Unlikely.So you think he took his winnings and tossed them into an IRA? How precious.
Gecko Gingrich: All I'm saying is that it's less likely he drops thousands a week on the lottery.
Trance354: speaking of which, the powerball is over 360 million, gotta go buy a ticket. House, debt collectors paid off(and I will then own the place their "business" office is, and jack up the rent), car for the first time in 5 years, and travel the world over the summer, then back to classes.
scotchcrotch: If anyone knows how to earn a living without working, it's a postal worker.
lack of warmth: scotchcrotch: If anyone knows how to earn a living without working, it's a postal worker.Right. So if you count his profession, that makes five times winning the lottery.
