    What is wrong with your organs that you think people involuntarily excrete when they receive good news?

    If true, he is actually doing what most lawyers and financial planners tell you to do...MIA, all the way for at least a few weeks.

    Kinda. More like take the numbers off your house, rip the mailbox out of the ground and move immediately without telling anyone where you went...

    Isn't it throwing your money in the trash, though, 99 percent of the time?

    Oh not me. I would do what 300 million dollar powerball winner Jack Whittaker did. I would buy an Escalade and go to a shitty strip bar and leave a briefcase with $550K in it laying on the passenger seat while I hung out there hours after it closed.

    A man yells at his wife "pack your bags, honey, I just won the lottery." "Oh wonderful!" she says, "should I pack for the beach or the mountains?" The husband replies, "I don't care. Just get out!"

    is it possible for no one to know, or they have to make it public?
    i don't even know if id want to win, i have enough people bumming money off me already.
    then if you don't give enough(and it's never enough), you are the bad guy

    Depends on the state and which jackpot you win. The big multistate jackpots have a clause that they must reveal your name but the winner can decide if they would like to have more information revealed to the media.
