The Irish Times - Friday, August 17, 2012
A Ballymena manís failure to remember his wifeís correct age has netted him almost £2 million in the EuroMillions draw.
Paddy and Gail Millar yesterday received their cheque for £1.994 million (Ä2.539 million) in Ballymena, Co Antrim, after Mr Millar made the ďbest mistake of my lifeĒ. He used the ages of his two daughters, 11 and 17, his 21st wedding anniversary, his age of 50 and his wifeís age of 48 to fill out the lottery form. What he had forgotten was that Ms Millar is actually 49. Mr Millar, a nurse, said his wife had forgiven him.
He had five correct numbers and one lucky star in the draw. Had he drawn another lucky star he would have ended up sharing the £148 million rollover prize won in the same draw by a couple in Suffolk, England.
Mr Millar had previously joked to his wife about scooping a major lottery prize Ė so initially she did not believe him.
Ms Millar said the win would not change them dramatically. The money would be used for a holiday, possibly a new car, and to help care for their parents, she added.
1 - at least he thought his wife was younger than she actually is
2- at least the error won them money and not lost them money
imagine that conversation
man: dear, we were 1 number short of winning £2 million
woman: oh well
man: yes, i used our ages, our daughter's ages and the wedding anniversary number but 49 came up instead of 48 so we missed out on £2 million and instead only won £50K
woman: wait, you did our ages and 49 came up instead of 48?
man: yes, why.
woman: I'm 48. who is this other woman of yours that's 49?
man: oh siucra
e. e. cummings is my hero.
I keep trying to win the lottery. Maybe one day a mistake like that will happen to me and I'll win the million prize. If ever a mistake is made when purchasing the lottery ticket, I'll be sure and keep the incorrect one.

However, as a general rule coaxials tend to be of lesser build quality so they can be sold cheaper. Baskets are stamped and thinner, cones made of cheaper materials, and any crossover networks are rudimentary at best since they have to be affixed directly to the basket.
