Anybody see last week's episode? Why do they keep profiling the same kind of nitwit? One guy blew through 3.5 mill in less than a year and a half. Another one spent $600,000 on cars alone, and another guy won 4.2 mill BEFORE taxes yet he's looking at mansions of more than 3 mill.

It's basically the same m.o. over and over. Just once I'd like to see somebody with some imagination and initiative who'll make a difference somewhere. Feed hungry children, start a scholarship fund, sponsor a school in disrepair, something!

Any moron can go out and buy a fleet of cars. I don't need a whole hour of that!

"...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

      Is that not where the taxes are supposed to go?

        I mean even in the most recent "dream car thread" I mean its Aston Martin this Ferrari that and have virtually no bloomin onion idea about the many offerings nore the proud racing heritage nore all the offerings

            Although no government agency is willing to call the lottery a tax, it is none-the-less a source of implicit tax revenue.

                They profile whatever type brings in the better ratings.

                If they stuck to "decent and socially responsible" types, they'd have to interrupt every 20 minutes to tell you that if you like the programs they bring you to please consider a donation to support them. $10 donation for a pen, $50 for a totebag... Wink

                    75.6 million , and he said around 25m atfer taxes

                    yes he can buy 600k worth of vechs

                    spent 14.4k on some 4 wheelers on show to boot

                     

                    and he owns 4 house's and was shoppinh for  a 5th. 

                    hes not dumb, hes super rich, and if you have that kind of money, yes you can spend a ton and not be "dumb"

                     

                    as for others, yes 1 idiot did buy all hes friends a car, and has nonething really left but hes girl and shop/stuff he has on him.

                     

                    and lottoguy has a point, people who appear on lottery changed my life, are not trying to hide who they are. so right their not deep planners

                    any genius with lottery money would hide behind a lawyer via trust etc, and you never know they won the money. and sense their telling no one

                    ofc we never find out how they invested

                    the best lottery winners are ones you never find

                    just like best murders are the Ones never ever found out.

                    and i also remb a really smart young couple on them shows once, really smart. so their not all stupid.

                      They also said that the $14,400 he spent on the 4 wheelers is less then a week of interest on the money he invested.

                              it's their money, plus they are helping the economy if they are spending that much.
