Glad he still has all his moneyThumbs Up

Why does he have ALL his money, from what l heard him say, his bought a couple of upscale bicycles and that's it.  Winning over $200 mil and buying just that strikes me as strange.

    Enough said there.  Cyclists are a disease,  well most of them anyways.  Maybe he can  get a cyclist fund started so he can help fund all of those cyclist paths and trails,  instead of motorists paying for the cyclist projects. 

    Requiring bicycles to have a license plate with yearly licensing fees would definitely help cover there unsustainable projects.

      I Agree! If that's all you're going to do to enjoy the money, why bother playing?

          I Agree! Cyclist who drive on the road are just a nuisance. We built them paths on the roadway and instead of riding in the path, they ride on the line which disrupts the flow of traffic.

                thriftyness is for poor people. not this guy. why bother playing if you have an aversion to flaunting wealth. i hope you tithe so the vatican can flaunt their wealth by including your money in their porfolios

                 I am a Unitarian and I don't belong to Catholic church anymore. And as a member of Unitarian Universalism I have studied a lot of religions out there. Now I am studying Buddhism. 

                 One reason why I don't want to live a life of luxury even if I win a big one is...I really hate those towelheads who collect supercars and supermodels like toys. I have no intention to lower myself like those parasites.

                           Those <snip>s living off the devil's piss, which is petroleum.

                           Trust me, some of the nicest people I have met were Arab Muslims. One Muslim baker often sent tasty cakes to my Veteran's Club at my school. You know, if someone's a kind of person who lives off the natural resources and makes an obscene amount of fortune, chances are he will be inclined to live a life of luxury.

                           My father was an engineer working in Saudi Arabia back in the 70s. He spent years in there, working hard. And he has nothing positive to say about the ruling class of that country.
