I live in Ga and yesterday  I went to house that was own by a lottery winner who won the Fla lottery

15 years ago. She borrow 750,000 from the bank and left the house which later sold as a short sale

for 225,000 the house was filth, because she had 95 birds according to the neighbor living in the house. Correct me if I'm

wrong I would never want to be poor again , so I would be a little caution with the way I spend my money. She went

and got herself a farm which she will most likely lose, because her money going to ran out if the bank doesnt come after

her. I just believe that if you get that chance you should be caution, it doesn't happen to everybody.

      She didn't take all the birds she move to another part of Ga in the country. Her husband divorce her, because

      she was alway taking vaction and leaving him at home with the birds. I hadn't seen any good post lately so that

      you, Tiggs and I could go at it. Just kidding. Trying to make some money on cash3 and four. If it wasn't for lucky I wouldn't have any at all

        This is what upsets me about the lottery. I get that nice people who can handle the money win, but the types of winners that blow the money just irk me. And I understand that if you win millions you want a huge house and everything a typical millionaire has. The problem is that these people don't understand they're NOT typical millionaires. While there are huge winners that can afford to live like a typical millionaire a good portion win only a couple million and think that they can spend, spend, spend and that it will never run out. They don't get that they only have a set amount while those other millionaires are making millions yearly so they can afford to do what they do.

        I'd definitely play it safe, buy a sub-$500,000 house I could live in for years and an $80,000-$115,000 (have my heart set out on an X6M). The rest would go to small/medium purchases, bills and small vacations. Nothing really THAT lavish. I would probably spend $1 million the first year but then after that it would be a pretty low-key life. I would definitely enjoy my life living with that even if I had a couple million and knew I could go buy some Ferrari's, a mansion worth $5 million or so many other things. I'd have the ability to never have to work again and I'd be fine with that. Our city is pretty nice and with the average cost of living being under $25,000 it would be easy to spend out the days here and keeping the wealth. Let's hope I get a shot one day.

         

        On topic with the lady though, I'd hate to see that house. I've seen a bit of 'Animal Hoarding' and what they showed was just terrible. Couldn't imagine anyone wanting to live like that, there has to be some sort of psychological reason with it.

          I have watched "Hoarders" and have seen lots of stories about folks with animals.  Seems like to me they have a sort of complex where they need to take care of "things". They chose animals because they can't talk back or tell the owner what they really need and want. She went way overboard by having so many birds and when she created her mess, she left her husband there to take care of it for her thereby regulating his position from husband to caretaker.  She'll be broke soon enough.

          If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

          You never know when you will get another hit.

            Winning the Jackpot is generally a chance of a lifetime with some expections. To waste it in elaborate expenditure is a sure way to go broke fast. I'm not saying that you shouldn't buy some luxury items but be mindful of how quickly your cash can go. I think that people that are wasteful with money before the Jackpot hit will be even worst when they do hit it.

            Play to win!

              im pretty wasteful with my cash before ive won lotto. look at how much i blow on lotto tickets. yeah if they had any sense they would donate some money to an animal shelter, but its not about the animals, its about their broken brain.

              but it does give us hope, if someone with their sort of problems can pick a lotto woin why cant we?

                I like the term 'broken brain'.

                And yea, there has definitely been a wide range of lottery winners. From a reverend to a level 3 sex offender it's definitely something everyone can win.

                  When it comes to hoarding it has everything to do with psychology. On that show there was a lady with a bunch of parrots/ birds and she has breathing problems from all the dust that they produce.

                    I know that it's there money and they should spending the way they want to. They just look like fools to me

                    when they come on TV. I think the lady is almost broke why would you borrow 750,000 from the bank. If i

                    was the bank I would go after my money in full force, because she had the money. I would freeze whatever

                    she had left This to me is a diffrence from someone who just doesn't have money to pay there bill, because of

                    job lose, sickness etc
