I'd like to win @ least a million dollars to see if God could trust me; maybe He can't, but I'd like to find out. I'm pretty sure that I would be better off w/ a mil. than w/o it.  I wouldn't waste any of the money on frivolous things, like a $100,000 chandelier, which I saw a winner had done on a tv show that I watched. Those kinds of things are bought by winners just to impress people (as some poster mentioned above).

    Wonder why that is?

    What? 

    Yes NodIt's also the same destructive behavior that

    lends itself to celebrities who do not know how to handle fame.

    That's the reason so many celebrities have drug and relationship problems.

    We are not designed to have way too much more than what is needed without

    sharing and blessing others and having the "glory" spotlight shined on us.

      It's a spiritual law.

      I worked in Vegas casinos- we had a woman come in, set  up a line of credit, hung around the dice tables and the sports book.

       She was betting $1,000 on basketball games, booked herself into the hotel for two weeks.

       when she asked for a marker (in her case, credit on the table for money deposited at the cage), the computer said:

      Miss _ _ _ _ _ _ _  _ _ _ _ _ _

      $ _ _ _ _ _ _ on deposit. 

      Occupation: California Lottery Winner

       So one of the supervisors got talking to her and she said she had won "a very nice amount", set a small, small portion of it to come out to Vegas and roll the dice (she was a $5 and $10 bettor), and bet some hoops - for a couple of weeks - and get it out of her system.

        I have a plan for when I win the jackpot...after I get back from Disneyworld I intend to go to Vegas and spend most of my fortune, drinking booze, throwing dice and chasing women.  I'll probably waste the rest of it on something frivolous.
