      What's your wish list with 20 million Joker ?

      The first thing I do is retire , the second, I go get a new cars for me and Hubby, Third I quietly help friends and family in need, fourth I get a blue ray disc player with complete Harry Potter DVD'S, Then we plan a nice vacation.

      Do I have a grand plan if I win a nice chunk, not really, What makes me Happy, My Husband and Son, my garden, walking my dogs, having lunch with my sisters and laughing our a**es off.

      Never will I believe that true happiness can be bought, it's something you feel in your heart , mind and soul.

      Money can bring financial security, only if you know how to handle it.

      Would I accept the money ? sure thats why I gamble, I will continue to gamble, I will play 3 digit as long as it's there to play. The money would free up our time to do the things we enjoy.

      I think 200 million would do the trick.

      First I'd buy a mansion on Malibu beach, a couple of penthouses in N.Y.C., and a 30 million dollar yacht with a helicopter-pad on the yacht parked at the marina in Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles. Then I'd buy a 3 million dollar recording studio with an experienced guitar mentor on call, a stage with huge speakers on my beach at the Malibu house, and buy propert on both sides of the house a quarter mile on each side so I can play my music as loud as I want. Play with a band at my house all the time. Have a harem by my side at all times. Travel all around the world.

      I'd give money to my family and some friends. The rest of the money would go into savings and investments.

      After the first two weeks of heavy partying, I'd take a two week break in a peacful location to dry out. Then start the whole process all over again...lol

          I voted yes.  It wouldn't make me happier but it would get me out of slavery debt.  Thinking of...

            Of course money will not buy one happiness, but it sure can afford you things and experiences that can make one happy.  I can tell you I have a long list of things and experiences that will make me VERY happy indeed. 

            Another interesting thing is that I find it amusing that a lot of people say they will RETIRE when they come into a large sum of money.  IMHO, when I come into such a large sum of money, I will actually BEGIN to work to ENJOY life instead of doing my best with what I have to make my life enjoyable.  Some people may not get that...just re-read it and it should start to make sense.  Even though I am not independently wealthy NOW, I still never find any boring moments in my life.  So when I win that nice big jackpot, I will CONTINUE to LIVE, only will just elevate my level of life enjoyment (cannot divulge that plan but believe me, it will be a blast!).

            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              Once I have financial security(nothing too extravagent), then giving it to charity will not make me guilty and won't mess me up despite of winning souch a large dough without having to work for it.

                Ok, here's the question, and be honest. This  question is ONLY for people who don't think money will make them happy. All others please don't choose.

                If you believe that there's a possibility that a lot money won't make you happy, would you deny the money given to you?

                Of course If you're playing the lottery, you're gonna accept the money, but let's say someone wants to hand you 20 million dollars free and clear, would you tell them that you don't want to take it because it may make you unhappy?

                It's a yes or no answer.

                Hi Joker17. More money won't bring me more happiness. I am happy!Wink

                But yes, I'd surely accept the jackpot money. It would help me to continue my charity work and to help more people and animals.Big Smile

                  Ok, but you'd be happier than you are now. Wouldn't  your ability to help your charity and help people and animals on a greater scale  make you happier?

                  Just imagine the increased satisfaction that enables you to do everything you're doing now, but a hundred fold. What folks seem to forget is the amplified effect. The world is practically at your command.
