Actually, most people who win the lottery say after a few years that it ruined their life.

Yeah, it would just suck...new boat, new car, new house, and a huge savings. :D

I might even buy a gas station :headbang:

True, but I'd be willing to take my chances

Hadn't checked my numbers yet, but since I didn't buy my tkts there I won't rush to do it.

I would be willing to take my chances as well.

The guy who won the first lottery in GA one a million, bought a trailer and moved to Alabama. He was back in less than 10 years running the auto repair shop he closed when he won.

You live with however much money you have.

Most of the time people with the most money are the most unhappy.

I would rather say I spent it all, than never to have had it at all..:D
I would have alot of dreams fulfilled, but I am sure I would have a whole new list.
I would like to make a few of my family members dreams come true too.

Ya know, I saw some thing on TV about that, that lottery winners often end up massivley in debt or in the gutter financially after they win the lottery. Alot of them also end up being unhappier than they were before. I will say another funny thing, people that I personally know that have money or are "well to do", are generally noticeably unhappier than people I know that live a modest lifestyle. Its quite strange.... I dont get it. Is there is a relation between stress/unhappiness and money?? This is interesting...... :confused:

Solomon, the richest man in history writes in Ecclesiastes, "He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance with its income. This to is vanity."

Hate to say it but it seems like the ones who win are the ones who have no money to begin with, and don't know how to manage what they have. Whether its the $100 in their pocket that will be misspent on cigs, beer, etc......, or $100 million in the bank that will be misspent on material things, bad investments, Moombas, etc, etc.......the money will be pi$$ed away due to lack of knowledge about how to manage it.

As for the "well to do" who are miserable.........one of two options as I see it. #1 Sr Level manager / owner of an organization that is under a lot of stress due to sales, budgets, quotas, payroll you name it. High position is high pay but also high stress. #2The other "well to do" are the ones with all the material things.....nice house, boat, car, but can barely afford groceries. We all have friends / relatives that are there. Everything they own is new / expensive. But they are making monthly payments out the a$$ and have stretched their expenses beyond their income, just to look "well to do"

The modest.......I would say they #1 live within their means or #2 They make good money but choose to spend it wisely, or #3 they exist at the low level of maslows hierarchy of needs. Food, clothing, shelter, is all they need to make them happy.

I guess it goes back to the old phrase "money cant buy happiness"

But if you have a decent amount of money, you can get some Fine HO's with it! ;)
