    That is an incredible story. The lag time screwed him. The lesson is:
    Don't procrastinate.

    It was in Canadian dollars though, so only a few hundred in real dollars. Would hate to be that guy though!

    Winning $13.5 million would solve all my current problems.

    I'd have a whole bunch of brand-new problems to deal with.
