Lottery, Nazis, and Urban Development: Feedback Friday

Show Me the Money

That New Hampshire lady who wants to remain anonymous after winning the lottery? Why’s she making it so difficult for herself?

My first thought is that she either agreed to split the money with someone (never thinking she’d actually win) or owes a bunch of cash to some shady peeps. She might also have an outstanding warrant.

Otherwise, the solution is easy. Move out of your place (get a hotel room and store your stuff), collect the money, then when everything’s public, change your contact info.

Any thugs that go to your house to rob you won’t find anyone there! Then you sell the house and move on with your life. It’s not that hard.

More Lotto Advice

That lottery lady’s really screwed herself now. If she would have just fessed up, sure her name would be on the news and what not, but everyone would have moved on by now. At this point, it’s going to be headline news when she finally comes forward.

The bigger lesson’s not to sign your ticket ‘til you know you’re a winner. Then you can put it in the name of a trust and no one will be the wiser.

How to Deal

I can’t help but laugh whenever I hear someone upset about building and development in town. I want to ask: “How much are you generating for the city?” And I don’t mean taxes, which you’d have to pay anywhere.

Unless you’re making money for the city or making donations, you have no say in how things improve. As a citizen, you can offer suggestions, but otherwise if you don’t like, it find another place to live. It’s simple as that.

Get Up, Get Out

rally-man

Every so often, that photo of a lone guy “refusing” to do the Nazi salute goes around. I’ve seen it a lot so far this month.

The thing is, why the hell was he at the rally in the first place?! He could have just as easily stayed home. And if he was trying to make some kind of statement, even if we’re talking about him now, no one else at the rally seemed to even give a care.

I’m just saying, if you really want to oppose something, don’t just go to a rally and fold your arms, or make a sign, or chant a slogan, or whatever. Don’t try to get your 15 minutes of fame. There are so many better ways to bring about change.
