At least it is someone young enough to do something with it instead of a 80+ year old in the Miami area whose family will suddenly care a whole lot more about the winner's health than before.

Holy shiat. 160 million at 23. And his name is public. This wont end well.

Didnt they do some kind of study that people who won the lottery ended up murdered, overdosed or homeless like several thousands times the normal rate?

Is he single?

If I ever won the lottery, keep a strict vow of silence for as long as I can, get investors on the phone and put a majority of it in investments and live off the interest.

Unfortunately in Pennsylvania your name has to be public so I probably would go off and hide afterwards and change my name.

Wouldnt you be able to change your name... BEFORE claiming the money... then change it back to what it was? Would that be legal?

Nah, that's Pasco County.  More like oxys and fentanyl.

Yeah, he's fooked.

Alligators and Meth? Is that Florida's version of Hookers and Blow?

Yes, but with more alligators.

In Florida, you can set up a trust and have it claim the winning ticket. It's a decent way to stay off people's radar & also get a few extra tax advantages. It seems Mr. Yi didn't do this. Luckily, if does go to college, he can learn how to manage that wealth. That & don't fark anyone while there, because as soon as anyone knows you're loaded, they will be out for a payday.

I knew that I should have played.

My state lets me play online.  I live for the joy and terror of receiving emails like this:

It is totally worth $2 to be a Schroedinger's Multimillionaire until I collapse the waveform by finding out how much I won.

it would still be a matter of public record.

He'll end up marrying an "ex"-stripper named Tawney, Raven, Randi, Candi or Bambi.
And that'll last until the money runs out.

The headline offers two possibilities:
1.   He's Florida; and,
2.  Subby can't be bothered or doesn't know any better.

How many lose the money but don't file for bankruptcy? We probably don't hear about those.

Yeup. Before you claim, already have lined up where you are moving to.

Very true.

But you also don't hear about the people who have little or no problems.
Not newsworthy.

Is that like adding powdered milk to your milk so you can get more milk per milk?

Only 23 years old and took the lump sum, thus blowing $75,000,000 before he even saw his first dime.

Yeah... he'll be broke in two years, tops.
