I often wondered, as did contributor Banazir, if the big lottery winners were hoaxes. This fresh article on a big winner has a few of our favorite tell-tale numbers:
Then there was the story I can’t seem to forget, where the biggest jackpot ever winner was filled with controversy, and of course, occult numbers.
Since we all agree our “government” lies to us, why would they lie about big paydays? Who would go along with it? Are the winners all actors?
Well, in just this small sample of stories, the winners all disappear. This is logical to us, but does it make sense for the long term? Sure it’s good to clear one’s head, but how many of us are willing to cut all ties and start a new life? Could there be other reasons for disappearing, as in, since these are “sims”, they don’t really exist and therefore have no past and certainly no future?
The why is easy. Lotteries are taxes on the stupid, which is most of us. When the payday goes up, it garners big publicity, and subsequently raises staggering amounts more than a normal draw. I must admit, once in a very blue moon, I will stop and indulge if I see big numbers.
It is puzzling why they wouldn’t pay out, I must admit. The whole reason, we are told, that government and only government can run lotteries is that private persons or corps are not trustworthy. Besides money, what would they have to gain? Since private banks (like the Bank of Canada) create fiat currency, why withhold a payout?
Perhaps the anomalies are simply coincidental. Too bad abirato.info doesn’t believe in coincidences.
