You know what....he shouldn't burn his bridges......he's going to need his old reputation for the new job he's going to need later. The contacts alone in the building are priceless he could have doubled his money in no time. Now this is going to turn out really...really...really bad. Although I could be wrong......

.....yeah right

    " Yay another "moron" wins the lottery. You can tell he is not very competent at all, and will be bankrupt and begging for his job back in a few years or less." Sir Brad

     

    There is so much bitterness on this board.  "I didn't win so this guy must be an idiot."  Why is everyone judging this man as if he was unemployed or homeless and suddenly won some money?  He had a very good job before he won the lottery.   He's single and owns a house in Brooklyn, so he could have invested his money wisely for years.  I don't understand all the comments, since I've gambled in Vegas, Paradise Island, Freeport, Aruba, St Martin, Puerto Rico and other places, and I wasn't frivolous with my money.  I was on vacation.  Maybe he's just having fun!

    I am not bitter, I just calls it as I sees it.

          How can he ever be broke?  He's getting $5,000 a week for life!  He's not stinking, filthy rich, but definitely very comfortable!  I suppose he could make a lot of stupid investments, get into a lot of debt, and then he'd have to sell his annuity, but nothing I'm reading indicates he's going to do any of these things!  A lot of men marry younger women and end up settling down & having families.  The modeling business is very tough and competitive.  Maybe she found her Prince Charming.  You never know.

            Not exactly hard to find, just wasn't posted here so as to not advertise it and give her more attention than she deserves. At least that's why I didn't put it here.

             

            I see the guy taking out loans agianst his annuity and getting into trouble... We'll find out in a couple years...

              Well, ya know JP.  I viewed one of her websites on which a bunch of her friends were pictured, and it seemed the general talk was about heavy metal, and purple haze and partying. And that particular website left me with a bad IMPRESS.  I couldn't help but seeing a middle aged man walking into this kind of environment trying to Impress a younger crowd, and even dressing and acting the part! So, now he even goes out and buys a Candie apple Red Cadillac. Neck of the woods I'm from, you might as well dial 911. Then in one of the photo's he even throws up a kind of gangsta/playa Shrug! Street life is nowadays extremely dangerous! Of course, he's having a little fun, but the world is a different place now! it altogether caused me to question his judgment. I said the things in my posts based on my environment and work experience! Of course I could be totally wrong. I actually wish them the best, but something about the whole thing doesn't feel right. The young lady even looks a little STREET! I must admit I've never been to new York, so I don't know who controls what! I like the way you take an opposing view and then build an argument for it. Makes the board interesting. I better stop, cause I'm supposed to talk  lottery, and I've digressed way too much. They may very well get hitched tho'.

                Impressive how fast money can change people.

                I hope he has his fun, but gets smart before he burns up all his money.

                Yeah!

                  Colthmn, I agree that the lady looks a little "street" but that means she's smart too.  She's using what she's got while she's got it. I don't see any inappropriate pictures on her site.  After all, she's a model.  What I don't get about men is that most of them get up everyday and go to their boring jobs and come home to their boring lives & flop in front of the TV before hitting the pillow.  Then they dream of living on the wild side, gambling all night and sitting in a hot tub with a sexy model.  Next they knock someone who actually decides to act out that fantasy.

                    You are so right! He has every right to do what's he's doing. We (at LP) just think that having won so much money, he needs to be careful to not blow a chance of a lifetime and wind up like so many other winners that in just a few years, all their money is gone and they wind up homeless.

                     

                     

                    P.S. There is also a little bit of healthy jealously and envy.

                      I saw in NY Daily News this model girl was accused of being involved in a brothel. Of course I don't believe that for a minute!

                      Man wins jackpot, keeps working, goes to strip club, people at strip club get in trouble, guy acts like big shot w/ women and gambles in A.C... sounds familiar... keep it coming!!!

                        OK!, sooo you think that every woman is smart like you are, tasteful as you are, tactful as you! Well, it ain't so! She started w/out much and will end likewise! Didn't see the pictures? She put up a bunch  of websites so as to cover all possible bases. Somebody see something. She's a model no doubt.  Problem is, Who?, When?, How much?, Where?  That's the puzzle she's trying to answer.  No! you do get men. that's why things are the way they are for you!  Cause you refuse to play the dumb game! They want you, but they want her too, and maybe a thousand more! The way their made, and you know that! So they slip off, lookin for her, cause its comfortable, safe, then look for you, but you fightin'.  So, they hit the lotto, now they got it all. And guess who's good to go? Then, they get all bored with her and want to go home to mommy dearest. So who's the smartest tween' the two? Ava Available, or Holdback Helen? Could I answer that, I'd make millions. Gotta trick um', make um' think you got it all! Every woman knows all this, except, how do I close the deal? When I see the "street lady," part of me yearns, but I know better, so reigns are easily pulled in. OK! so I said all this trivial stuff, but what does it have to do w/ p3 or p4? See what I'm saying?  All of this, and I couldn't give a sensible answer. Now you see why I'm broke?

                         

                        P.S. They're knockin' them cause their jealous! Includes Me! What a mess!!!

                            Every 10 years he lives he gets 260,000 x 10 years = $2,600,000

                             

                            He is 44.

                            If he lives to:

                            54 = $2,600,000

                            64 = $5,200,000

                            74 = $7,800,000 - Average male life span in United States.

                            84 = $10,400,000

                            94 = $13,000,000

                            104 = $15,600,000

                            114 = $18,200,000 - Nears max life span of Human beings.

                            Not a bad deal.  The longer he lives, the more money he receives.
