Very simple 


1) Pay off all personal debt. ( Credit cards, and loans )

2) Buy more Life, Health and auto insurance.

3) Put most of money into low risk Money markets, savings, cds and Government bonds and live off interest.  Would avoid stock market, and new business ventures.    

4) Buy a nice 2 or 3 bedroom condo with a doorman.  Nothing too fancy. 

5) Relax on a nice sandy beach. Being a Millionaire is stressful.  Smile 

 

 

After all of the above is completed.

 

1)  Help family and friends

2) donate to church and charitable groups

3) Do lots of traveling. 

Party

Why would somebody who just won a large jackpot need life insurance?

    Why not? You could afford the premiums for a higher return. After all, a jackpot won't last forever and you want your loved ones and their loved ones to be taken care of, right? Smart thinking in my opinion.

      Insurance companies make money selling life insurance, they're gambling you'll pay more in premiums while you are living then they will have to payout when you die.

       * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

        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

        you got me all wrong. I am not looking for people to agree with me. I am looking for dialogs and thoses involve disagreements.

        Unfortunately you believe that a forum should consist of a question and an answer. That is not real world. Real World is Question Answer Rebuttle and so on and so on.

        What your real fear is... is not having the last word.

        Well I can't just give you The Last Word anymore than I can give you one of my Corona's you asked for.

        I don't care if you agree with me or anyone does for that matter. The dialog is the important thing on forums and ya know what everyone really likes the disagreements in forums with others despite what they say about them... because just agreeing is boring....  really really really boring.

        You obviously like it as well to invest so many words devouted to one.

        now about this colour blue thing could you be a bit more extact.... maybe post of a jpg of the blue you are talking about and we can go from there.

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

          For how long? Till the 12th of never? Disagreements? Is it over opinions, or what you hold to be the written word?

          Unfortunately you believe that a forum should consist of a question and an answer. That is not real world. Real World is Question Answer Rebuttle and so on and so on.

          Funny thing....I don't ever remember even slightly mentioning Q&A...Hmmmmm....(Where are my 2 coronas?)

          What I did say, which you twisted was, that by answering with an opinion was not good enough for you, and you're compelled to convert opinions.

           

          What your real fear is... is not having the last word.

          You seem to know more about me than I do. Now that's true talent. Why are you still raising rare sheep? You could make a ton of money as a mind reader.

          I don't care if you agree with me or anyone does for that matter. The dialog is the important thing on forums and ya know what everyone really likes the disagreements in forums with others despite what they say about them... because just agreeing is boring....  really really really boring.

          Agreeing is boring?

          Tell that to the grieving parents, who's son or daughter died in a war where the two countries were in disagreement with each other....Yeah...Lot's of fun.

          So you basically admitted that you like to stir things up.

          Here is a typical situation:

          Marzipan: Do you like chocolate?

          Victim: No.

          Marzipan: How can you say that? According to the chocolate industry, 89 percent of humanity likes it.

          Victim: Well....I must be the 11 percent who don't.

          Marzipan: There must be something wrong with you. Who doesen't like chocolate? C'mon man...you know deep down in your heart that you really like it.

          Victim: Why would I conceal it? I gain nothing by doing so. That's just me.

          Marzipan: I know what your problem is. You have no clue on how to have a debate. You just like to have the last word.

           

          now about this colour blue thing could you be a bit more extact.... maybe post of a jpg of the blue you are talking about and we can go from there.

            Hey pac definitely a mind reader:

            folks like you are insulted when people don't agree with your belief system and don't want your belief system shoved onto every website in the world. It's a lottery website. *rolls eyes* but you folks keep bringing up your christianity here. You don't want that belief slammed or questioned then stop bringing it up in inappropriate places.  Like here.

            Manzplan you are truly brilliant thanks for straightening everything out. 

            Where did you read that I was Christian?  Where did you learn to read minds across nations?

            Millionswanted posted:

            ___________________________________________________________________________________

            My dad and I were fishing in the Middle Cheaspeake when one of the suitcases was found by another fisherman, what a shock to open that suitcase!  Dismemberment, what fun! How is it possible to do this?

            Easy, not believing there are any consequences for your actions. 

            Not believing in God. 

            Now, that's a stupid assertion to make. So you believe non religious people don't  believe there's any consequences for their action because they don't believe in a god? That's very typical ignorant assumption from self righteous christians.

            It doesn't have anything with beliefs to do, but peoples Conscience, Scruples and if they're potential  psychopaths or sociopaths."

            __________________________________________________________________________________

            Manzplan in the first sentence MW says: "Now, that's a stupid asertion to make" then  "That's very typical ignorant assumption from self righteous christians."

            In the United States, we believe in free speech, but we also respect each other.  But when someone whom I don't know from Adam comes on here and attacks me or anybody for a simple statement trying to understand why someone would kill and cut up their own husband, has issues of their own.

            It seems you have your own God complex. You have an answer for everything, in the few posts you've written, you speak as if you are some kind of authority on everything.  You also insult people by some of your statements here is one:

            Manzplan says:

            "I have seen quite a few posts by some on this forum that difinately are not ready mentally for a huge lottery win. Some that would difinately be in the same boat as Jack or David very quickly."

            So if one of us hits we'll call you for advice, because you are so smart, definitely. 

            If the word or concept of God upsets you,  I apologize.  And as far as this being a lottery site, you are correct, but we are also a community that enjoys sharing experiences as regular people do in life.  All lottery and nothing else would make this a very boring place.  I feel kindred to all of the members here, and have learned much, not only with respect to the lottery but with many other aspects of life.

            And Pac this was his response, the final word:

            Manzplan's response: Brilliant I may add.

            "I see" said the mop to the broom "could you hand me another toaster strudle?"

              KYFloyd

              Rich people take out $1,000,000 and higher policies.

              Really rich people "take out" those policies by putting the million dollars up themselves, it's like a reverse mortgage but insurance and the insured is the insurer, kind of.

              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

              Lep

              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                People People People! This is the kind of thread that sticks in my craw! What's up with all the arguments and "last words" and blah blah blah!!

                If we don't like something that was posted can we just leave it be and not respond? I've been seeing this more and more on here and it's a big turn off to me and I'm sure to quite a few other folks.

                And I couldn't disagree more with this statement!

                The dialog is the important thing on forums and ya know what everyone really likes the disagreements in forums with others despite what they say about them... because just agreeing is boring....  really really really boring.

                I do not enjoy reading the "disagreements" such as this bickering back and forth.

                That isn't why I come to the Lottery Post.

                Agreeing is FAR from boring. It is the glue that holds us together. Like attracts like and some of us here ENJOY getting along and sharing our common interest--the lottery.

                Let's please be respectful of this forum that Todd has invested so much of his time and effort to!

                And I dare anyone to "argue" that point!

                        here is what I mean by agreeing is boring......

                         

                        Person 1: Cotton Candy is great!

                        Person 2: Yep

                        Person 3 Good post!

                        Person 4 Kudos!

                        Person 5 yep

                        Person 6 yep

                        Person 7 Yep

                         

                        discussions and dialogs are made up of points and counter points.... 

                        it's the people who can't handle this fact of discussions that start wars and perform violent acts....  not people who can handle having a dialog with someone they disagree with frankly should not go to any place where they interact with others.

                        Defending our postions to others and to ourselves helps us define who we are and what we believe to ourselves even more everytime we do it.

                        Everyone is a part of that even those who like the rosey coloured glasses and think they live in a perfect world where everyone agrees. 

                        Have enough respect for any forum you are on by actually having meaningful discussions and meaningful discussions usually will have some sort of disagreements. 

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

                          and pactracks btw I drank one of the Corona's yesterday. still a few more sitting in my food storage room.... but again I can't really send them to Florida.  If I could I would send you one. Even paint it that shade of light blue you like if you would bother to post a jpg of it to go by. :)

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

                            here is what I mean by agreeing is boring......

                             

                            Person 1: Cotton Candy is great!

                            Person 2: Yep

                            Person 3 Good post!

                            Person 4 Kudos!

                            Person 5 yep

                            Person 6 yep

                            Person 7 Yep

                             

                            discussions and dialogs are made up of points and counter points.... 

                            it's the people who can't handle this fact of discussions that start wars and perform violent acts....  not people who can handle having a dialog with someone they disagree with frankly should not go to any place where they interact with others.

                            Defending our postions to others and to ourselves helps us define who we are and what we believe to ourselves even more everytime we do it.

                            Everyone is a part of that even those who like the rosey coloured glasses and think they live in a perfect world where everyone agrees. 

                            Have enough respect for any forum you are on by actually having meaningful discussions and meaningful discussions usually will have some sort of disagreements. 

                            Define yourself in pm's or blogs - please!!!

                              People People People! This is the kind of thread that sticks in my craw! What's up with all the arguments and "last words" and blah blah blah!!

                              If we don't like something that was posted can we just leave it be and not respond? I've been seeing this more and more on here and it's a big turn off to me and I'm sure to quite a few other folks.

                              And I couldn't disagree more with this statement!

                              The dialog is the important thing on forums and ya know what everyone really likes the disagreements in forums with others despite what they say about them... because just agreeing is boring....  really really really boring.

                              I do not enjoy reading the "disagreements" such as this bickering back and forth.

                              That isn't why I come to the Lottery Post.

                              Agreeing is FAR from boring. It is the glue that holds us together. Like attracts like and some of us here ENJOY getting along and sharing our common interest--the lottery.

                              Let's please be respectful of this forum that Todd has invested so much of his time and effort to!

                              And I dare anyone to "argue" that point!

                              Bravo - you said exactly what I feel.
