I don't know what it is, but I think I love this woman.  I know I've said this before, but this time it's different.  I swear.

She bought the winning ticket at a Publix supermarket in Zephyrhills

Wut?

neritz: I don't know what it is, but I think I love this woman.  I know I've said this before, but this time it's different.  I swear.


In all honesty, she don't look half bad for 84. We should all be so lucky.

She didn't attend the presser, and I bet the grandkids will call more often.

That wasn't the winner.  She didn't attend the press conference.

Awesome...I was trying to find that one.

Hopefully she has someone looking out for her best interest.  Because she's going to get swamped with requests for cash from every hard luck story.  And if she's alone, suddenly people will be willing to sit and visit with her, hoping to get in her will.

Uh, she does have a will, doesn't she?  Can you imagine if she died without one?

2013-06-05 04:59:03 PM
i bet she'll retire after winning.
 
2013-06-05 05:13:12 PM
I about drove off the road because I was laughing so hard when I heard it was a little old lady who bought ONE ticket who won the whole half billion.

/bonus unreality for the story - someone let her go in front of them in line as he had a few items & she was just getting one ticket
//yes I know, new #s get generated every millisecond so he probably wouldn't have gotten the winning ticket anyway - but still....
 
2013-06-05 05:16:35 PM
If she has family she intends to give the money to when she passes, I hope she didn't claim the ticket in her own name. At 84, I hope someone informed her of the estate tax implications down the road.
 
2013-06-05 05:26:44 PM
Why is it always old farts who win the lottery!!
 
2013-06-05 05:28:37 PM
Can you really call it luck when you win at an age you can't possibly enjoy it?
 
2013-06-05 05:29:59 PM
So if you are the lucky lawyer and financial advisor that helps the lottery winners, how much do you charge?
 
2013-06-05 05:31:29 PM
I wonder if she is single?   Just askin.
 
2013-06-05 05:31:35 PM
Her heirs must be doing backflips.
 
2013-06-05 05:33:21 PM
She's going to make a Nigerian Prince very happy.

I think she's hot and I've told her that for many, many years.
(call me, sweetheart!)
 
2013-06-05 05:34:41 PM
Her Bingo organizers just popped bottles of champagne.
 
2013-06-05 05:35:43 PM
I think I am related to this woman...

Well at least by the end of the week I'll have some nice new documents that will say I am.

Or finally afford to get her roof fixed by that nice guy with the camper on his truck.
 
2013-06-05 05:35:48 PM
That's either really cool or really sad ... 84 years old ...
 
2013-06-05 05:36:43 PM
She'll be broke by 90.
 
2013-06-05 05:37:18 PM
I hope she leaves it all to her cats.
 
2013-06-05 05:37:46 PM
Just remember Biatch, you can't take it with you.

Call me.

Oh man, I heard there's a strain of that now that's antibiotic resistant.
 
2013-06-05 05:40:56 PM
Did she find the ticket in a bag of groceries?
 
2013-06-05 05:42:41 PM
All this time, I thought the delay was brilliant strategic planning, waiting to come forward at the perfect time, to assure minimum attention.  Now, I think she just couldn't remember she had bought a ticket.
 
2013-06-05 05:43:18 PM
Now she can do two dudes at the same time.
 
2013-06-05 05:45:02 PM
84 and she'll finally get to meet the rest of her lineage. All 4,617 of them.
 
2013-06-05 05:47:13 PM
I'd munch her box for a share.
 
2013-06-05 05:49:04 PM
Is she going to lose her Medicare and Social Security now?
I bet she didn't think of that.
 
2013-06-05 05:52:45 PM
Considering she had two lawyers with her, all of the concern posts of "I hope she ______" can probably stop.
 
2013-06-05 05:55:34 PM

birchman: Considering she had two lawyers with her, all of the concern posts of "I hope she ______" can probably stop.


Not mine.  She will give the money to her cats.  And I'm not concerned.

That actually is kind of interesting that is the case. I mean at least say you were in a pool or something with whomever you plan on leaving it to and claim it jointly.

thisisyourbrainonFark: Now she can do two dudes at the same time.


Hmm, that may well be the equivalent of hookers and blow for an 84-year-old woman. I wish her gin and tonics and plenty of cabana boys to massage her weary shoulders. Heh.
 
2013-06-05 05:57:31 PM
That was dumb. She pays taxes on it now and then when she dies the people she leaves it to will have to pay taxes on it again and I believe at a higher rate.
 
2013-06-05 05:57:50 PM
tinfoil hat time. is there any possibility a friend/family member gave her the ticket because it benefits the real winner?
1] the old lady cashes the ticket
2] she gives the cash to the real ticket holder secretly
3] financially and just bullshiate wise the real winner won't get hassled by anyone
4] old lady dies and family and friends say lottery money? what money? inheritance taxes? gift tax? what money she must have buried it in the back yard and so on.
 
2013-06-05 06:04:29 PM
As a regular sort of guy, I think I'd be afraid to have that much money. I'd have to have bodyguards and stuff. Never show my face around in public. That would kind of suck. Sure I wouldn't live a deprived life or anything of the sort. I guess if I had to choose how much I would win in the lottery, it would probably be less than that. I don't know. Maybe not. I did buy a ticket after all.

I hope this works out really well for her and her family, but I sincerely doubt it will.

100% certain they looked at surveillance video of who bought the ticket already.

Doubt you'd have to worry about that on your own private beach/island.

I know.  I think the next time we hear about this woman it will be when they find her in a shallow grave.  Hope she hires someone trustworthy to watch her back.

I'd rather be broke and 45. Actually, I'd rather live under the bridge and be 25.

Does that really matter? I mean, is it against the law to buy a lottery ticket and then allow someone else to claim the winnings? Even if it is, how could it ever be proven that a particular person didn't buy the ticket?
 
2013-06-05 06:18:41 PM
hey me-maw! it's me one-in-the-chamber! sorry about the nursing home and what-not. I think I can arrange double pudding!
