Smile New year's eve

There will be a lottery next new year's eve here in Holland. This week i shall buy a lotteryticket and I will win the 20.000.000 euros. With this money i will be able to buy the commercial rights of LBA from mister Paul De Senneville. Then I will buy off all original LBA creators and hire them with some other talented people to finally start the production of LBA3. Not only will LBA3 make me as happy as never before, i will recieve more money from the sales than the lousy 20 million i will win in the lottery.

IS THIS A PLAN OR WHAT!!!!

get serious man .. I mean :
1. You'll never win
2. If you do , you won't spend your money on this
3. If you plan to , your folks will go nuts ... they will never allow you to spend 20 MILION euros on a what they call " a stupid game "
I mean , they barely let you buy a new game when It's out ... Anyway ... it's a nice thing to say ... sometimes it's good to dream a little , you know

Even if you win, the state will probably take 40% and then afterward, you'll have to give away another 40% if you wish to withdraw all those money immediately.

tax free

Well, i am talking about 20 million tax free, because it's a lottery given by the state (staatsloterij). Furthermore my parents won't mind if i'd buy some commercial rights for a computergame, as long as i buy them a nice summerhouse or something like that. (not that they would have any form of control over my hard earned money...)
Why will I win this lottery? Because no one else will!!!
Why would i spend it on a computergame??? Because the interest i receive in one month will be more than sufficient to buy these rights.

Well... what could possible go wrong??? It's a 100% waterproof construction!!!

If you HAD won with these numbers, you would probably get like 0.01% of the price
I bet hundreds of people use those numbers.

Excuse the idiot, but what are those numbers?

National lotteries are btw robberies performed by the state. Here, they only give out 40% of turnover in wins. The state should not do that kind of business.

It's Hurley's numbers, from Lost.
Spoiler:
He used them to win the lottery, and since then he brought bad luck to everyone around him.
