A resident of Michigan, USA, heeded the unexpected advice of a stranger and won four million dollars in the lottery. This is reported by the news agency UPI.
A 54-year-old American woman said that she and her husband stopped at a gas station and went to the store. When the couple stood in line at the cashier, a stranger advised them to buy a lottery ticket for $30 and assured them that they would definitely win four million dollars.
After pondering his words for a bit, the couple followed his advice. Already at the car, the couple removed the protective layer from the ticket and saw the amount of winnings promised by the stranger.
“At first we doubted that we understood everything correctly, and decided to properly consider the ticket at home,” the woman says.
To dispel any doubts, she went to the office of the organizer of the lottery, where she was confirmed winning.
The money could be received either in the form of 30 monthly payments of 133 thousand dollars, or immediately, by donating part of the amount. The woman opted for a lump sum payment and received $2.5 million.
Earlier it was reported that a robber from the Argentine city of Puerto Madryn won the lottery, promised the police that he would no longer steal, and decided to distribute the winnings to his former victims.
CNN Anchor Claims Dangerous Filthy Slums in America Are ‘Vibrant Expressions of Democracy’
CNN host Fareed Zakaria aired an astonishing rant this past
weekend arguing that major US cities are filthy and dangerous because of
“democracy,” and that makes them more “vibrant.”
Zakaria was attempting to provide a counter argument to Tucker
Carlson’s recent report that Russia’s subways are nicer than America’s.
Modernity.news reports: “American cities are expressions of democracy,” Zakaria asserted, claiming they are “places where people have to negotiate differences and find ways to live together, that makes them messier and dirtier and sometimes chaotic.”
He then argued “perhaps that is what has made these cities so vibrant and innovative, and why they have been at the forefront in making America the country that leads the world in economics, technology, culture and power.”
Is rampant crime, homelessness, and drug use part of said vibrancy?
Fact check. American cities were not shit holes when the country emerged as the envy of the world.
Zakaria continued, “Carlson speaks enviously of cities like Tokyo, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and they are indeed wonderful in their own distinctive ways. But what’s striking about all of them is that they are somewhat tame and subdued. The product of authoritarian governments or conformist culture, or both. American cities are different.”
He appears to be seriously claiming that you cannot have a clean and safe city without some kind of evil dictatorship overseeing it.
Zakaria continued “Carlson put forward a bizarre hodgepodge of assertions he thought the architecture, food and service in Moscow was better than in any American city. Really? Moscow?”
“Outside of a small historic center, it is filled with drab Soviet era concrete buildings. And while the food in Moscow can be quite good…Better than New York or San Francisco? You need to get out more” Zakaria concluded.
Has he been to San Francisco lately?
