While the probability of hitting the jackpot in a lottery may be very slim, some still keep on trying their luck in the hopes of becoming instantly rich . Besides, no one ever knows when luck will come knocking at your door.
For a man who doesn’t even believe in lotteries, taking home millions of dollars as a prize totally comes unexpected. John Lewis is one of those who have never bought lottery tickets as he thinks they are just a waste of money. But one night he did and his first time to scratch a card gave him a fortune that could support him for the rest of his days.
John Lewis was once an unbeliever of lottery – until he won $5 million!
John ran to a local grocery store he said he doesn’t usually visit. He went there just to buy some mushrooms, a major ingredient for his pasta sauce. For some reason he could not explain, he decided to buy a lottery scratch ticket.
The 56-year-old man said there was a silent voice that spoke to him that night that urged him to buy the ticket. And when he did, he ended up leaving the grocery with $5 million worth of lottery winnings.
To describe his surprise on that lucky night, he said:
“I never put money in those things… What possessed me to be in that store, at that time, with just enough money in my hand for that onmachine, I will never know.”
The New Yorker only spent $10 on the Set for Life ticket. His winnings were enough to keep him out of work so he decided on the spot to quit his bartender job at Lake Placid. The Tops Friendly Market in Saranac Lake then held a press conference from the store’s potato chip aisle.
Lewis was all smiles as he said:
“I’m just glad it was me.”
Thrilled to win a fortune, John called his girlfriend to share the good news. According to AWM, the ticket he won comes with a lifetime payout. This means he will get $172,068 every year for the rest of his days.
He also added:
“We’re very low-keyed.”
“I was planning on working at something till the day I died. This may open a few more doors, but we’re happy with the life we have. It’s a good life.”
Little Girl Casually Finds ‘Excalibur’ at the Bottom of the Same Lake Where It Was Thrown
The seven-year-old girl looks kick-ass while holding the legendary sword.
Seven-year-old Matilda Jones from Norton, Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England was paddling in Dozmary Pool in Cornwall with her father, Paul, when she casually stumbled upon a four-foot long metal sword resembling the legendary Excalibur. It is suspected that the sword, found in the same lake where it was supposedly thrown according to the King Arthur myth, is about 20-30 years old and was probably an old film prop. Nevertheless, Matilda was pretty psyched with her discovery.
Matilda had just heard about the legend of King Arthur from her dad shortly before her discovery. She was fascinated with the story, and it was an amazing coincidence for her to find the "Excalibur" during a holiday with her family.
Matilda's curiosity led to a pretty awesome discovery.
Woman Confessed ‘Having A Lover Makes Me A Better Wife’
She said it’s a “win-win” for everyone.
It takes a super woman to be a good wife. Yes, being a wife is not easy. It means she needs to be a nanny to take care of the kids every hour, be a chef to cook for the kids and husband every day, be a housekeeper to clean the house the whole day, and be a nymph for her husband every night. Being a good wife could also mean there will never be enough time for herself to unwind, travel, have her moment of solitary, or even do simple things like running to the bathroom to pee.
All wives are not perfect. They can also feel weary, exhausted, emotionally and physically drained, and cranky. And taking care of another person's mess sometimes brings out the worst in typical good wives, to the point that their relationship with their husbands may suffer.
This is not the case with Savvanah Whitman, not her real name, whose husband, Austin, is quite supportive. Austin even allowed her to have a lover to recharge in case she starts feeling insane from her life as a mother, wife, and a PhD student....

You’d definitely want to look at them all day!
When talking about beauty, it’s hard not to include Plato’s famous quote in the conversation. Oh, for those who have no idea what the quote is, it’s this: “Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.” To simply put it, there’s no universal standard or requirement. Anyone can be beautiful, but not everyone is beautiful in the eyes of other people.
When it comes to red hair women, there’s something about them that makes them extraordinary. It’s obviously the color of their hair and the way it compliments their faces. This inspired an American photographer named Brian Dowling to capture 130 redheads from 20 different nations in a project that he calls “Redhead Beauty.”
