    If I only put the word "Too" after the last word "Question"

    The word "Too" is exactly like the number "TWO" in sound.

      A fool? You don't understand. I WANT to be the owner of a multi-billion dollar company. You can't call me a fool. I'm a very ambitious person, an entrepreneur. I am in the middle of building a prototype of a product that I want to put on the market. I think it will be a hit product too. As popular as telephones, TVs, and computers. As far as the trip to Las Vegas goes and the Corvette, I haven't had ability to enjoy such things. I'm not going to Vegas to gamble away a bunch of money. I'm going to have fun. Also, calling me obsessive for wanting to be a billionaire after winning the lottery is totally non-valid because owning my own business and becoming a billionaire is one of my goals right NOW. Winning the lottery would just speed up the process. I'm a 21 year old who is very creative, has many skills, and has a long road ahead, not some 50 year old fart who's saved up a $50,000 401K. Know the facts before calling someone a fool.

      You go Guru.

        lol yeah people will answer this one where it is flacid and lacking of details

         

        That's not a polite thing to say about people's threads, we could say the same about yours. Just as pac and DD stated, this topic has been done to death.

         

        People can't seem to give a detailed summery of what they would do with a huge lottery win. 

         

        Of course not, how can you? People's lives change all the time and by the time you or anyone else wins a jackpot, who knows where you will be in your life and what's going on that will dictate how you spend it?

            lottolaughs I Agree! I think manzy got a bit of the scrapies.

            I've never claimed to be polite lol

             

            But I can give a detailed summery of how I would spend 10 million detailed and down to the dime if you like. Because my dreams are not dependent on winning the lottery, what the lottery would do is make things go alot quicker.

            If people are into the whole visualization thing or even the whole secret thing then making a detailed dream plan is a valid exercise for them.  So therefore the idea I proposed hasn't been done to death and is valid.

              Guru101

              To each his own but I have to ask, why go to Vegas? What are you going to stand to win in Vegas that would even come close to a lottery jackpot? If you're going there just for the sake of 'flash' you might attract some very bad characters. 

              Also, start a company so you become a billionaire. Sounds a wee bit obsessive. What then? Exapnd the compnay to become a trillionaire?

              Personally the first thing I'd do is 'go to the mattesses' for a little while and take it from there. The lower the profile, if at all possible, the better.  

              In some ways going to Vegas and Blowing money first off would be a good thing. As long as you don't blow too much.  Best to get the craziness out of one's system first off.    Most places advise that people spend 10% of what they win first off on stupid things to get sick of spending money. Sort of the Brewster's Millions Theory.

              Of course you could go through 10% of any size jackpot fairly quickly in Vegas.

              I would pry go the West Edmonton Mall and try to blow the 10% there. It would be harder there than Vegas and I am sure I would be sick of shopping when I was done.

                  One thing I have always wanted to do and this would take a huge lottery jackpot or something else to do is kind of strange and wacky......

                   

                  here goes.

                   

                  I would like to form a dummy company that a few times a year in a few places would hire people from a Day Labour agency like Labor Ready... (Labor Ready does have alot of people who are there because they need to do the day labor thing for other reasons, but many are there cus they are messed up and can't get other work because of addiction or whatever)

                  So here is what I would do I would hire people for the day from Labor Ready and then do really strange things like take them to the zoo.

                  Get a group or their worst employees (they do know that at the agency) and a couple of their better employees.

                  I would have one of my people pick them up and take them to the zoo. They wouldnt know why they were going to the zoo. They would think they were there to work... but they never would work. They would just walk around looking at the animals, be bought souvenirs, bought candy and have their photos taken.  Then returned back to labor ready without an explaination.

                  Take a group to an amusement park and do the same as at the zoo.

                  Take a group to the art museum and have them have a guided tour.

                  Or I would take them and get them dressed up in evening clothes, take them to a fine resturant and then to a play or the opera..... all without an explaination of what was going on.

                  Or I would have a group come for a week to a workplace but they would just play croquette for the entire week.

                  Or Have days when they were taken to a building and they would have a butler and a cook and just watch Art Films or Independent Films and be served horsdourves and such all day....

                  All without an explaination.  Except if someone picked up a broom and started to sweep or a rag and started to dust.... then they would be told "You're not being paid to work"

                  Reason for doing this is because those who work hard in that type of day labor job need a break from time to time and those who don't or have drug or alcahol problems of which such places attract alot would be so confused after that experience they might go straight.. lol

                  That is my wildest dream of something to do with lottery winnings.

                  I would follow around in secret watching the mayhem lol
                   

                  You live a life of abundance! You have won the lottery! Belief creates reality! Believe!

                    lol yeah people will answer this one where it is flacid and lacking of details but not one has taken the challenge of my "How much would your dreams cost?" thread.  People can't seem to give a detailed summery of what they would do with a huge lottery win. If they itemize everything and how much it cost.... they just might not have enough cash with the lottery win to do everything they plan to do.

                    I will not engage in any discussion with you about anything. In your other post pertaining to the justification of winning the lottery by giving to charities is the reason I won't reply.

                    You present a post in a lottery discussion forum, and when someone like me gives their opinion, you tell me not to read your post, if I don't like or share your idealisms. So basically, if someone doesen't support your "ideal" reasoning process, then just go somewhere else. And then, when I do go somewhere else, you follow me around provoking an answer to some other post (like the one in the above quote) you have about itemizing the cost of my dreams. Who died and made you in charge of the accountability department. You have no clue as to how and why I would spend millions of dollars.

                    Let's say, for argument's sake, that I did itemize my costs. I'm pretty sure you'd have something negative to say about that too. So I'll just steer away from people like you, who are never satisfied with other people's opinion, whether it makes sense in your mind or not.

                    It's your way or the highway. I'll take the highway.

                    I'm also sure, you'll have a reply to this post stating something that I said was wrong or skewed, or whatever.

                    BTW, I like the color blue, a light blue. Let's hear your argument about this one. I can't wait....LOL

                            i would wait a couple days soak it in, then make a list of the most important bills to pay and family members to bless, then i would claim it, and spoil myself, kids and husband with a three day vacation, then probably get back and look into opening our business which has been a dream for a while.  oh and cant forget to remodel my kitchen. and that's it. no fancy cars, no mink coats, no over the top crap.  thats not me.  so that is what I "think" i would do 1st.

                              i think what is wrong with you is that you "BELIVE" you will win that is why you reply:)
