The close circle of friends should include his cat.

Leave it all to your cat in the will!

Yes, he will have lots of new "friends", many of whom may turn out to be vultures!

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    I like this guy. Conway kitty...lol.  He will do a lot of good with that money but buying fancy cars for friends is not a good idea.

    I agree. 

    To Think: If someone had some dodgy kinfolk, I think the best thing to do would be to tell them his/her cat was going to inherit the estate and after the cat passed, the rest would go to a charity.

    Conway Twitty: That was his stage name, his real one being Harold Jenkins.  He supposedly came up with Conway Twitty after looking at a map and seeing Conway, Arkansas and Twitty, Texas.   A lot of people around here think he got "Conway" from a little tourist trap and truck stop on I-40 just east of Amarillo, because Twitty is not far away from there (or where I live)  Twitty is literally just a spot in the road on Hwy 83. (which is one of the longest north/south hwys. in the U.S.)  There never have been many people live there in my lifetime, but there used to be a gas pipeline booster station there when I played ball at nearby small towns and when I worked on drilling rigs in the area, there was a gas station/country store, a feed store and mill and a cotton gin.  Looking at it on Google Earth street view, the stores are closed, the mill looks to be almost falling down and only a few houses remain.

    My aunt and uncle invested in a song (paying the studio costs) that Twitty recorded, but never released. That was back in the 60's and my uncle is still annoyed over that.

        Not to change the subject, but saw on the California website the person who got 5 numbers in Powerball only gets $293,000.00 (and some change).  That is why I don't like para-mutuel payouts.  they were short changed some $700,000!!

              I wish this was the " vision Year". In one of my posts last week l mentioned " it's my part and l will cry if l want to"  ( way before my time) .. Only to read that the Singer died yesterday., Sad, but a vision nonetheless..

                Once you feed all the starving children around the world with your 50 million dollars, you'll be lucky if you have 50 cents left. Da! The man has good intentions, but it's a bad idea.

                  I think the idea is to help the charities with the interest that is earned, preserving the principal millions.

                      In 2002 Jack Whittitger won 115 million after taxes and gave most of it away and soon became broke. Da! Maybe you should wait six months , you know, look before you leap, so you don't end up like poor old Jack Whittitger. Da! Once you get into woulda, coulda, shoulda territory it's too late. Da!

                        If I ever win, that's what I plan to do, create a non-operating private charitable foundation. There are tax advantages, but also some obligations and limitations to a foundation; the IRS levies an annual 2% excise tax on all investment income generated by the foundation and the foundation is required to distribute at least 5% of its investment assets in any given year. There can be fines if those two and other stipulations aren't met, but shouldn't be any problem as long as the trustees/board members are above-board with the foundation's money.

                          Bad idea. It will just put the cat in harm's way. There is a story of a deceased man who left most of his fortune to his pet after he died, and then the pet died under mysterious circumstances shortly after. Probably poisoned by the jealous relatives.

                            When someone, like Movie Star Tom Hanks for example, who used to be a poor starving actor when he was young accumulated 400million dollars over the last thirty years, he doesn't feel guilty about having all those millions of dollars. He's not going to spend most of his fortune feeding all the starving children of the world. It's a psychological thing. I know that if I won I'd be giving all my brothers a million dollars each, and my children a million each, etc. Do you get my point? I worked with a guy, Victor who's sister married Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond). Ray is worth 125 million dollars. Do you think Ray would offer to give Victor a million or two? Nope! So stop feeling guilty when you win the lottery and suddenly have a ton of money.

                              Well, sanman$, if you are a U.S.A. citizen, our "Gifting" to each person is $14K/year limit.  Anything over that gets taxed at the biggest percentage rate!  Consequently, perhaps you could generously give each of these people that $14K/year, PLUS purchase a 4-unit apartment building (ownership always 100% in your own name/LLC/your trust's name) for each one to manage while living in one of the units, instead. 

                              Thinking of...

                              Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!
