    Her state allows you to set up a trust that the winnings can go into. If she had first consulted a lawyer, set up the trust, and wrote the name of the trust on the ticket, she could remain anonymous. Her mistake was signing her name to the back of the winning ticket.

    I wonder how many people who play lotteries know this is even an option.

    Debate, maybe, but this was journalism (from the CBS flagship station) - real journalism focuses on reporting facts and stories, not just inventing one for ratings.

    And again, unless there's a report otherwise, it's one instance. Show me two and we'll talk.

    Not that I am in the business of defending media outlets (God forbid), but while there was one psychologist cited, the article referenced this being atrend at several schools in the U.S. and Europe. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but the use of the "s" on the end of schools was not a reference to a single school.

    Ooh. Good to know. I mean. I'd rather remain anonymous. But for $.5B before taxes, I'd let my name out there. But if I had that ticket in my possession, damn skippy I'd set up the trust.

    It's clickbaity, yes. But you raised a point of order, thus establishing the domain of discourse we're operating in. I was just following the rules you agreed to by invoking it. 'Cause I'm an ornery old cuss.

    Yes, they claim it's a trend; so they, or someone else show be able to prove it's a trend.

    Jack Shafer at The Slate used to run a series of articles debunking all these fake trends being reported with nary a shred of decent journalism.

    If the event were advertized in advance, given he current state of things, I can’t predict whether the stadium would be empty or full. If there’s any hope for humanity I would hope for empty. No offense intended.
