Re: Idiots

Typical actually. The exception I know of was a lady in FL that hit it a big one. She did not really need the $$$ already being successful. From what I heard she gave an amount equivalent to the winnings away over the rest of her life and passed away with the principal still intact.

Re: Idiots

I don't have to worry about losing money I can't win; you're not a lotto winner unless you're a minority or among the elderly.

I'm not the former and, thankfully, not the latter yet.

Re: Idiot Lottery Winners

When I almost took a job with American Express they were telling us a story about a guy who blew it. Managed the $ poorly and then just had to start at zero again. It was a newly wed couple...sad story.


I would like to win the lotto though! I buy a ticket sometimes, but not all the time. In college we discussed how the lottery can be summed up as a voluntary poor tax.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: Idiot Lottery Winners

I sold a $10,000 winning scratch ticket once, but I was on the wrong side of the counter. Luckily my dad knew the guy who won though

Re: Idiot Lottery Winners

The stories of them losing it all are so pathetic. I hate to say it, but there's usually a reason people are in the financial situation they are in before winning, and those tendencies don't change when they suddenly have several million dollar$. And though it sounds like a lot, a few million bucks really isn't that much, and wouldn't take long to blow.

I buy a quick pick ticket probably twice a month. It's the ultimate fantasy. For my $1 ticket I can't tell you how many times I've had the dreams I hit it. Then I wake up.

Totally worth the buck!

I totally agree. If you can't manage the small amount of money you have, how can you manage a large amount?

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.
