tomerson: Lsherm: I pay the stupid tax of 10 dollars every week.  I fully expect to be at the same level of disappointment after the next drawing.

But I gotta try....


It's like believing in heaven.  The 10 bucks isn't that much, and I don't want to say I didn't try.  A hedged bet, as it were.  Very, very small chance of winning, but worth it because the reward is so great.

K.B.O. Winston: I think you missed the part about changing it back afterwards. The point is they announce in their press release that the big winner is Farkle McTitswiggle and not K.B.O. Winston. This might slow the deluge of people who hear the name and say say "Didn't you go to school with someone by that name?"

Legally changing your name is on the public record.  If someone was passingly motivated, they could look up the name changes without too much trouble.
