Winning 100m is not a likely proposition in FL until they go multi-state.



when do you see that happening?

      You suppose the 3 people that said RNGS are good are also the ones who would work after they hit the big one?

          i can't see why someone would want a job after winning that much money.

            Maybe I mistook the meaning of the question, Mike.  I don't see working as necessarily having a job.  A lot of the pleasures in life involve work a person doesn't 'have to' do.  The alternative is to fall into a sloth position and not come out until it thunders.  The idea of that doesn't appeal to me much.

              Hi Jack!!  I was thinking along the same lines as you.  Work does not equal a "job" for me.  When I win the lottery, I'll funnel my 'work' into lots of volunteering which I'd love to do if I wasn't out chasing the almight dollar all the time!!  If LottoMike meant would I keep my "job", well, NO!

                  Maybe I'd work one day a week.

                          Yeah, such as all those greedy CEO's.  Of course, they probably develop a lifestyle where they can't live off $50 million for the rest of their lives.

                          I would still work in my career (dentistry) but offer my services for free.  There are a lot of underserved areas where people cannot afford to have their teeth cared for.  Of course, I would need to win a pretty big jackpot to run a practice totally for free given the enormous overhead (employees, supplies, etc.).

                            would you still work after finding out you won a 100 million dollar jackpot?

                              Steve Jobs insisted his salary be a dollar a year. But a million dollar salary wouldn't matter to Steve Jobs anyway since Apple has appreciated in value by over 100% and Pixar by 50%.
