Making lottery winners secret

like this

I’m still quite sure big lottery winners are fake since the numbers just don’t come up frequently enough to keep people interested. This story gives a plausible deniability explanation as to why the media can keep the fake names secret and not make up a sim.

Once more, the best advice to future suckers is don’t play the lottery. You’d be better off playing one in an office for a few hundred bucks where you know the people who will pay you out.

The winning numbers triple-checked and the lottery ticket signed, the New Hampshire woman knew her life was about to change in a very positive way — except for one petrifying thing. As the winner of last month’s $560 million Powerball, she would soon be the world’s newest owner of a nine-digit bank account. But because of lottery rules, everyone in the world would know about it — neighbours, old high school friends, con artists, criminals. Now the woman is asking a judge to let her keep the cash —

to which the proles paid serious attention. It was probable
that there were some millions of proles for whom the Lottery was the principal if not the only reason for remaining
alive. It was their delight, their folly, their anodyne, their
intellectual stimulant. Where the Lottery was concerned,
even people who could barely read and write seemed capable of intricate calculations and staggering feats of memory.
There was a whole tribe of men who made a living simply by
selling systems, forecasts, and lucky amulets. Winston had
nothing to do with the running of the Lottery, which was
managed by the Ministry of Plenty, but he was aware (indeed everyone in the party was aware) that the prizes were
largely imaginary. Only small sums were actually paid out,
the winners of the big prizes being non-existent persons. In
the absence of any real intercommunication between one

Donald Trump, master bluffer of our time

Be the 1st to vote.

Perhaps the best bluffer/promoter/snake oil salesman of our time, this Netflix doc does quite a job explaining who Donald Trump is, where he came from, and clues as to where he’s going to help lead America. Well worth the watch if you have Netflix, if you don’t click below.

Donald really puts the theater into the phrase political theater.

How fake news affects people

Be the 1st to vote.

Our psyOp writers/culture creators wield great power with their fake stories. Real people are affected and do things marketers could only dream of making happen.
