    Winning the lottery does not make one rich; being rich is as much a state of mind as it is actual circumstances.  Those who blew through their millions only were temporary beneficiaries of riches but possessed poverty mindsets. 

    To say one is happy being broke may reflect one's actual mindset.  Personally, I could never be happy being broke.

    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

      As crazy and insane as his story might sound he is still living at least some winners are already dead his chances were not on the living side of the equation. However he lived in the woods survived it so i have a question for him why doesn't he write a book or do a movie about his insane life he may make some money at least twice what he does on his current day job. And also this is the kind of a risk taker that can win the lottery again . You see to be a lottery winner you need the guts to play and don't look back if or not you win or loss that is not easy for everyone but for him it seems he is a fighter and a fighter is good.

      The title of his new book could be "Winning the lottery before living in the woods " or " Lottery and the insanity "

                          Skeptical time will spin a most curious yawn b4 much longer ......

                          hope for his Daughter's sake hes changed his ways for good

                          Yes, Michael Carroll, has probably changed his ways from before, when he won the lottery as a late teenager to now as a young adult.  Unfortunately, this interview reads as though Michael lost A LOT of the already low gray matter that was in his head -- impossible to build up into a full working brain. 

                          Anyhow, I hope that Michael will be okay with his new, mainly violent media entertainments/non-friendships/home solo lifestyle (it's probably the best to remain solo).  I also hope that Michael's daughter's sole-parenting mother is able to give her own daughter good advice from here-on-out.

                            Here's part one of three of the documentary done of him a couple years back.

                            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nN4WCAxCwPM

                             

                            He says if he won again he'd do things differently, but I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't stick to those words. It's likely he's straight now because he doesn't have the ability to do what he could before. He could maybe keep his life straight for a while, but eventually the temptation for him would be too great.

                              I wish I could say that I feel sorry for the poor bloke, but I don't. The money didn't make him self destruct. It was merley the fuel to in which that fed his desire to self destruct. He claims that he got his life back, really? From my take on it is that he no longer has the money to carry on his party like a drugged out rockerstar lifestyle so now back to the real world. Hitting a lotto gift is a gift beyond a gift, because it so hard to acheieve it. The saying that "a fool and his money are lucky to get together in the first place", but also the saying goes that "a fool and his money are soon departed" Sadly both saying applies to a lot of lotto jackpot winners it seems.

                              Following the trends and patterns means following the money!Banana
