Don't try to figure it out

by maecuff In reply to ~scratching head..puzzled ...

you'll hurt yourself.

It's kinda like those people who win a kajillion dollars in the lottery and say "I'm gonna keep my job pumping gas." They should have to give the money to me. I KNOW, if I had a kajillion dollars, I could spend my cold winter days better than standing outside pumping fuel for people.

that type of news over the parade of horrors we're hit with every day. I don't read newspapers anymore and I seldom watch the news. It hurts to hear most of what is said, and I've reached the point in my life where I've realized that I don't HAVE to be informed. At least not on every tragedy.

I agree,

by Jaqui In reply to I prefer

these both came from the oddspot section of the news, and are funny stories, the type that helps to get a chuckle for the day. :)

I set up a google account for the search page, and customised the content, tech news and funny news only.

I'm not puzzled at all

by JamesRL In reply to ~scratching head..puzzled ...

There have been so many lottery scams that go on, some people have become so sceptical that if they won it must not be real, therefore it is a scam.

The scam usually goes, you have to pay taxes or a fee, or provide your bank account number or whatever before you can collect. They specifically target the elderly, people who may forget they entered a draw, or can be easily pressured.

But the question is

by JamesRL In reply to If I won the lottery ...

If someone called you on the phone saying that they were the lottery corporation, and that you had won the lottery, would you think that a) some of your friends were playing a practical joke or b) someone was trying to get your bank account information.

C (But that would never happen anyway)

by Oz_Media In reply to But the question is

All of the above; until credentials were shown


But they don't call YOU when you win the lottery anyway, maybe Ed McMahon does his sweepstakes, btu lottery companies don't FIND ticket holders, ticket holders FIND the lottery company. I knew someone in the 90's that won 14 mil, he didn't cash his ticket or even utter a word for nearly 2 months after realizing he'd won. He then just 'disappeared'
"Lottery, what lottery? Who Me? Naaaaaah!" poof, gone! (as if I would be any different!)
