2. I trust you will be making a very generous contribution to Democratic Underground?
:wow:

I have read that when someone wins the lottery, a lot of friends and family suddenly start leaning on them. It might be best to try your best to minimize who knows - to the extent that it is possible.

6. No, the winnings were $2
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 12:56 AM by demwing
the net profits were $1. Why are you trying to cheat DU? Do you hate our troops, you commie pinko socialist fascist? You hate them. Oh Yes, you do.
