Man misses winning numbers, sues his children for having the wrong birthdates

Of course, this makes so much sense!

A cab driver in Athens, Georgia, is really upset right now.  Stephen Jones played last week’s Mega Millions, where you have to pick 6 numbers to win the big jackpot.  Here is how he picked his numbers:

– his age (46)
– his age plus one (47)
– his wife’s age (39)
– birthday of first child (5)
– birthday of second child (8)
– birthday of third child (21)

Here are how the winning inumbers came up:  6, 11, 26, 39, 46, 47

As you can see, he matched 3 numbers out of the 6.

Lottery losers sue the lottery!

In Indianapolis, there’s a strange lawsuit being filed.  It claims that the Hoosier Lottery misrepresented the odds of winning a particular scratch-off game.  The suit has been granted class-action status by a Marion county judge.

So, anyone who bought a ticket to the game can join the lawsuit.  This sounds like a free-for-all just waiting to happen.

The suit states that the lottery misstated the number and amount of prizes available in the “Cash Blast” game during some months of 2005 and 2006.
