    i'm sure you won't have to worry about it happening. but it would if you did. you don't have a clue about what you would do when beseiged by throngs of people trying to get it away from you. and whoever wants to buy rental property. for what possible reason would you want to make more money off rental property. more than likely no one would pay the rent when they found out you owned it so you would be spending your time in court trying to evict them all. whoever wants to give to charities would be spending their entire life fending off the millions of charities that would be requesting help. and where do you cut off the relatives seeking the gravy. they would never stop coming at you for more and more. point is that it's just too much for 1 winner to handle. yes, it would ruin your life forever.

      travel to every state,  since I don't drink or smoke or do drugs, I would work on hobbies,try new activities, visit family and friends,workout a couple of hrs each day....do some volunteer work at a VET or seniors center, go to concerts,.....You need no organized plan to enjoy life...you can choose whatever,whenever...after all, whatever the winner does, isn't up to anyone's scrutiny except themselves.....The winner is financially free already...

        It would change my life certainly, but ruin?  I don't think so.

        I would buy some property for myself, but not rental property.  Stocks are a better and easier investment in my opinion.  I'd quit my job and work as an investor of my own money.

        I'd probably also legally change my name some time after claiming to try to avoid some of the inevitable harassment.  Sure, that's public record but it would make you a little harder to find.  Hired security for myself and my home could also be afforded if necessary.

        The biggest issue you brought up is, what do you give to relatives?  I would certainly give some to my parents and sister, but beyond that, I don't know.

              New member to LP even tho I've been reading u guy's comments and post for the last yr. haha. But anywhoo, 363 milli......O_O I'm a broke college student in my last yr of college struggling to make ends meet even to pay rent wich is only 470 dollars a month. I jus recently turned 21 which finally made me legal to play in my state.  My first lottery ticket was the 241 million PB draw a couple months ago. I've been playing atleast 10 bucks a week between PB and MM tickets. Winning a JP would b oh so lovely, but I merely play with hopes of matching 4 or matching 5 numbers. I just want enough to ensure I have a good strt after graduation. So yes, im a young lotto player, on a weekly path to play until it becomes my day.  But throught my first few months of playing Ive only raked in maybe 7$ in winnings and I've put over 150 into it. Not discouraged at all, bcuz I knw that's how the lottery plays out. I only play QP's bcuz I dnt want to b tht player that plays a certain number every week then the week I forget to play, those numbers get drawn.......I guess, in a gyst, I'm asking for any advice u guys would have for a new lotto player. Thanks in advance. F

                    Hi CollegeLad08!  I played my first lottery in college - and won! Okay, it was only $120-ish, but that's still the most I have ever won after playing for decades since.

                    My advice? Play less than $10 a week. All you need is one ticket in order to win. Save the rest for books - or for when the jackpot gets bigger and you want more than 1 ticket.

                        Hi DK....appreciate the reply. Thanks for the advice also. I think I am gonna cut my weekly lotto budget down....hopefully 5 bucks a week will suffice for a nice lump sum.

                          Great plan CDanaT. I like that one. While the younger generation keeps the businesses running, I could be managing the investments (managing the investment advisors more like), taking classes at the local university, traveling, perfecting my shooting skills, horse showing (the outside of a horse is good for the inside of (wo)men - W Churchill), working with animal rescues, etc. There is plenty to do that does not involve drugs and partying. I'd like to take dance lessons, maybe even piano lessons. The options are limitless if you think about it.

                              I don't see one ticket winning this one, too many people playing. I could be one of ten, still $18 million plenty for me.

                              What is my plan? Travel, learn new things. Have fun nothing but time on my hands now. Might do volunteer work for a cause I care about.
