So that's how you win. And not obsessively checking all 20 tickets as soon as the drawing finishes. Check

Countdown to bankruptcy and wishing he'd never won in 120 million... 119,999,999... 119,999,998...

Well, now that his name is in the news, he'll never get a day of peace for the rest of his life.

Who goes to San Jose for a vacation?

Wow.  A vacation in San Jose?

With those winnings I guess he can now afford trips to exotic destinations like Riverside or Fresno.

Foundling: Who goes to San Jose for a vacation?


He didn't.  He recalled going to San Jose where he remembered he bought some lottery tickets which turned out to make him one carefree motherfarker.

What's wrong with Fresno?  Seems to be full of nice people.

I think he can afford to buy a good chunk of Oakland

Now he can finally afford Northern CA.

I still haven't checked the 2 tickets I bought for that. They're in a dish by my front door. I heard the next day the tickets were bought in not-Chicago, so I forgot about them. I should check those, maybe I won $10 or something.

His name appears to be the Vietnamese equivalent of Jose Smith. That'll be quite a haystack to dig through.

I'd like to think I'd show up at work for a few days to tie up loose ends and tell everyone on Fark about my good fortune.

I read an article about the other winner of this drawing where they mentioned the name of the winner, neighborhood she lives in, and a physical description of her house, complete with basketball hoop. The description isn't enough to find the house in and of itself, but it sure narrows things down, particularly when combined with the name.

And here I thought the winner was just taking his sweet time so he could hire a lawyer, set up accounts, etc, etc, and then get ready to GTFO.

/what I read on Fark every winner should do, anyway.
