Carry on my wayward winner

Checking in on our errant lottery winner, we see that the winnings are still untapped. We're not biting our fingernails with worry. Yet. The person still has a little more than six months before the money goes back to the State of Illinois.

Instead, we take comfort in the hope that our Jumping Jimmy's lottery purchaser is just laying low while he does his research. That's what Brad Duke, a 34 year old health club instructor did before pocketing $85 million in Powerball winnings. Although, Brad only spent a month keeping his secret to himself. When he finally did "come out," he bought an older car because it fit his bike rack really well. Awesome!
