    Look at people like Chris Shaw ($258m on PB), Holly Lahti ($190m on MM) and Neal Wanless ($232m on PB). The three are doing great today and given their backgrounds, I think many assumed they would have problems.

     

    This is why I can't exactly feel too bad for Whittaker. The lottery isn't a curse and people from all financial backgrounds can and have made the most of their win. The difference with Jack is he wanted to flaunt his money around and throw it at everything out there. He thought money was the answer to everything.

    Perhaps he thought money was the answer to nothing, and that's why he threw it all away??

      He also killed people by giving them too much money.

      Just another reason a lottery jackpot winner shouldn't be too anxious to share his winnings, even with family members.  A lot of people can't handle spending more money than they've worked for.

        This!

        Though after all this time it still boggles my mind that he thought it a good idea to give his teenage grand daughter such a stupid amount of money.

        You can't predict random.

          I Agree! Most people think money will solve all their problems and it wont.

              The only tragedy was Brandi overdosing. Someone put her body there.  Who did? We may never know. There are many folks who made money the old fashion way and lost it. Yes, these people went to Ivy League schools. Most people who started a business was poor. In order for a family to be rich someone has to make the money first, so I never believed it had anything to do with what kinda of family your were born into or how much education you have.  Anyone can be a fool with money, but what's so odd about Whittaker is that he didn't go wild with the millions he made! Brandi wasn't given thousands of dollars a week back then. Maybe Jack thought, "Well, I'm rich and God just made be richer, so I'm King of the World!"

                Really? Who is boxing on the 26th?

                The day after Christmas outside of the USA, that is December 26 is considered to be Boxing day, that is when people presumably throw away the gift boxes they have accumulated leading to Christmas. Oftentimes, the day remains a public holiday like Christmas.

                    The way I remember the full story, Brandi WAS given a least $1000. per week for her and her "friends"
