I usually take home left-overs for my dog too. The big difference is, I don't have $200 million in my bank account. Nothing wrong with shopping at Wal Mart or driving a used Ford Escort, but they just won largest cash jackpot in history. What's the point of playing if you have no intentions of spending the winnings?

I Agree! plus don't forget she's 84 Yes Nod

    Big mouth EX  exposed some of the skeletons in their closet. Talking about sonny boy being a bone-smoker, and granny being a cheap as* mom in-law. Amazingly she still expects them to give her some money, but claims its ok too if they don't[HOGWASH].  Newsflash-he left you for a bone-smoker. Hint, hint, you must be a lousy 4K. H*ll hath no fury than a woman scorned!.

      You'll not get any argument from me about that. As I said in another post, I would have to live it up for the first few weeks at least once the money hits, otherwise I would stay awake at night worrying I might die tomorrow and never done anything truly unbelievable with at least some of that money.

      I've never left a restaurant I like without a doggie bag. I'm a slow eater and I get full quickly. So it's inevitable. 

      But we don't even know if it was really a doggy bag or if they ordered an additional meal to take home. Either way, If I hadn't finished, and it's a meal I love, I'm taking it home. Especially knowing the media might be following me if I try to come back and order more at another time.

      Considering how the media loves to portray lottery winners in a certain light, I'd rather look frugal than gluttonous. 

      Sulk Off

      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

      The odds are about the same.

        this is why we have freedom, and not communism,.  sure the gov takes  nearly half, nd tells you how they're going to spend YOUR money.  but anyhow, it is their money,  let em enjoy it how they see fit.  after all they are still prob waiting on the cash. 

          personally a  budget of 5x my yearly income would prob do for me for the 1st year.  then double it ea year untill i notice im   spnding money on stupid stuff, then ease back.

            I Agree! I think spending the money is a great plan. With $200 million, where's the need to "save up" ?

              The Gov taking near half is a rip-off. This country was started with the idea that would never happen again.

                This country was never started on that. They came here first for religious freedom. 

                After, it was about no taxation without representation. It was never about no taxation period.

                I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                  So they came to form a Christian Nation on Christian principles? Sounds good to me.

                            Perhaps you would like to read about "the rise of the modern income tax"?

                              Churches always quote the "render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" passage when congregants complain about taxes. That and about Jesus how befriended Zacchaeus who as a taxman was reviled by all. Apart from telling Zacchaeus to be honest in his collections, he had no problem with Zacchaeus' job. 

                              I've never heard any minister, pastor or priest argue against paying taxes. Could be because they need our taxes to remain tax exempt, or if you argue against one, you'd have to argue against tithes as well. 

                              Not really sure what the reasoning is, only that it's never an issue for them.

                              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              The odds are about the same.
