I think there's an important lesson here. At $84,000,000.00 you can miscalculate and it really doesn't matter. LOL. Cheers,

Yes. On the other hand, that 5.214 % is probably too high to be extrapolated for 365 calendar days given the current interest rates available. If he's in REITs and real estate funds, he's collecting a good dividend but he may be ignoring the capital loss in his shares. The homebuilder sector is down 20% since June.

      That remains to be seen.  Give him a year or two to see if the money affects him adversely.  Hopefully, he will not change (for the worse) and will not allow his possessions to possess him!

        Money changes everyone. Don't lie to yourself people, that's the first step to failure. I know that much money would change me somehow, thankfully I have a great God so hopefully that impact would not destroy me but I'm telling I won't lie to myself it will change me. Maybe I become more appreciative, maybe I start joining clubs or things I never joined before, maybe I treat people different subconsciously. I don't know but I don't think anyone no matter their background would go unaffected with such sudden wealth. IMHO. Cheers,

          Maybe he should travel to Oklahoma when its new lottery starts. After that he should go to NC when theirs begins, and so on.

            acronymn007.. i believe he wanted to remain anonymous, but the lottery commissioner told him that he could not. i guess his name had to be revealed.  im thinkin from there he figured since his name was already out there, he may as well go on tv and talk about it.  he was on the tv show The View. He donated $5000 to some babies that were on the show.


            but he seems really laid back.. kinda cool.  wish i had that kind of loot

            Big difference between the initial press conference, required by most states, and going out of your way to make yourself known to millions of people. One is a requirement to get the money, the other is the first step in loosing the money. Once the publicity addiction hits, it is harder to drop than smoking.

            THINK JACK WHITIKER -- live longer and happier by not being a clone of him.
