Quickly buy as much good farmland as you can afford.  Move there.  Rent your land to farmers for income.

Nobody will be bugging you for money because it's all "tied up" in real estate and you live in the middle of nowhere.   Big Grin

      Good stuff so far folks.

      What made me think about this was one of the winners on The Lottery Changed My Life, the ex-sherrif who stayed in the same town and said he had millionaires that had made bad real estated deals asking him to bail them out.

      That series has shown a lot of people asking winners formoney, but people who are already millionaires, yikes!

      I figure no matter where you go you're eventually going to run into nosy people, thus the thread.

      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.

            "If asked how you can afford a car like that, just smile"

            If people are asking a question like that you're probably not even trying to keep a low profile.

            As near as I recall, the vast majority of the losers  that turn up on TV have made themselves very obvious. If you don't want to be bothered, don't act like you've got a crapload of money. Buy cars that are good, but not overly expensive. The same goes for a house. I've got a lot of toys, but I still have no use for more than a couple of thousand SF and a good garage. Other than the very slim chance of bumping into somebody you know, people won't know that your 3 week absences include sitting in first class and staying at top notch resorts in Bora Bora.

              After a steady diet of scrap iron it's hard to resist that first Ferrari, the next car can be that dead dolphin gray Lexus.

                  Ever try to sit in a Maserati or Ferrari?  I've ridden in a deLorean Gull wing and peeps, it ain't pretty trying to get out if you're over 30 years of age and more than 15 pounds overweight--LOL 

                  My next door neighbor has a Cadillac Excalibur and he only owns a beverage shop so as long as you don't go entirely crazy, most people will only assume that you've come into a bit of luck or a relative died.  Brad Duke bought the farmland that some earlier poster suggested and built his own little kingdom--which depending on the amount most people win, is probably the best bet--then remember your friends and family and open your house once a month to play and share what you have--that way, it's not like Bud Post's brother who conspired to kill him--old Bud got the last laugh--he ended up broke and living on Social Security and his brother went to jail.

                  Just remember what Julia Childs said "Moderation in all things--even in moderation"--so kick up your heels occasinally but generally live where and in a manner in which you can keep a low profile.

                   

                  At least-that's what I would do.

                    I remember when I was a kid my uncle had cartoon picture in his basement. It was a fish looking at a hook with a worm on it. The caption was "Even a fish would not get in trouble if he kept his mouth shut".

                    THAT is how you keep a low profile.  Big Smile
