Do you think any of your family would kill you if you won the lottery?

Nope but I agree with the person who said you never know what people are capable of. I can honestly say (and believe) that no one in the family I interact with everyday which is only my Mom, 3 sisters, brother and grandma would off me because they'd get a generous portion. I'd probably think of some silly excuse to give cash gifts to my extended family and probably never tell them I won the lottery. My extended family would probably never know because I don't see them often at all and have no idea who they interact with. My cousin actually stopped by a few days ago and talked about how all of his "homies" are getting arrested and locked up. If he were to know and offhandedly mention his cousin winning the lottery to his friends... something might occur. You never know.

I completely agree with your post and have a similar situation.  Of the family members I interact with on a day-to-day basis (mom, dad, one of my sisters) I'm confident they wouldn't kill me for the money, because they will be getting generous portions.  I have a huge family (some of them I've never met and others I don't even know their names) so I can't really speak to what they would and wouldn't do.  I do know for a fact that some of them are incredibly greedy.  My brother has been in and out of jail since he was 16 and while I don't think HE would do anything to me, as you said, he may offhandedly mention something to his pals and that might cause problems.  Its too the point that when I win, I do not even want certain people knowing where I live.

    I'm totally blown away by the responses here with so many thinking their own family members might kill them for jackpot money.

    That situation is so totally unthinkable and bizarre to me, I can't even imagine a thought like that ever entering my mind.

    Wow.

      No, it wasn't that I didn't like any comment, pepper.

      It's that I was totally blown away by the responses that affirmed so many people here would worry about their own family killing them for money.

      That surprised the hell out of me.

        This is a very deep topic to me... and I believe I have a simple project which will give each and everyone of you an idea of what could possibly happen in the event of such a windfall. Just very casually, when you're around any friends or family, ask them what they'd say or think if you told them you'd won the lottery. Anybody here got the guts to do it? Also, it's not the initial response that I'd be focusin on but, rather what CONTINUES to happen thereafter for some time behind the thought of your winnings.

        I've already been through it and I'm not sharing what happened. But, if you really, really want to know how much lots of money really affects those close to you, then conduct this project for your own personal satisfaction. There's nothing cruel about it because you'd only be asking what they'd think or feel "IF" you told them you won. There's a difference.

        Yeah, somebody's afraid already. Pepper1 did really well and got deep with this topic...  Lucky's gonna one up her and take it even deeper...

        Let the project begin...

         

        L.L.

        I've done this. My sister think that I should buy them a house  and car they should be able to quite work. My sister-in-law think I should take care of my family and my husband  family with 3 million a piece.

        My two grown kids think they should'nt have to work again. My granddaughter want an expense car, college paid for, and all the most expense clothers that money can buy, money in the bank and credit card. I would help alot of people

        It's just I'm going to make my own choice. I not telling anyone but my husband. I want peace just my choice.

          Hey, good for you pepper1. At least now you have an idea of how those close to you feel about you and a windfall. See, the problem here is that most people think they really know those whom they're around most of the time...when they actually don't. Most people let you see what they want you to see because the conditions are usually never "right" for them to show true colors. 

          Here's a prime example. I'm sure you've heard about these fake lottery and scratch-off tickets right? Well,

          I've sat in on a jokes like this first hand...several times over, and I saw what the thought of certain types of individuals having lots of money does to those around him. For the record, it was a guy we gave the ticket to and he was in on this deal as well. The project was to see what all the "other" guys around him would think as well as all the women who never game him a second glance.

          Oh, yeah...this was a real good one!!!! Long story short, the guy that actually threw the party, and invited the "jokee", felt that the winner should pay for all the drinks and food at the party..."since he has it like that now". And, the women that never gave him the time of day basically walked up to him with their underwear in their hands. Money does, in fact, change people's train of thought.

          What's so strange is that even after we told everyone what really happened, they still didn't believe us...to this day. The reason why is because this same guy actually came into some money through inheritance not too long thereafter...and he knew he would which is why we did the project. The best part is that he now knows how all those people think...and he keeps them at a very safe distance. Especially those women...no disrespect at all to you.

          pepper1, lots of people are afraid of the truth...and they suffer because of it. Well, Lucky knows exactly what to do when his ship comes in...and how. As the old cliche goes, "If you don't know, you'd better ask somebody!"

                None taken. We see people marry some ugly old people for money. I like Larry King the other day I was watching

                TV, and I was thinking why would a young wife that he has stay with him, and it hit me "Money, Money. The man got

                all kind of hump in his back. We see and hear of all kind of stories everyday. I'm not telling so that we all can

                get along.

                      No, I don't believe that anyone in my family would actually kill me to get my lottery winnings.  Depending on the amount won, I have a plan in place to give money to my family members.  I already know I have some people in my life that would expect me to pay for everything socially after I win. 

                      I know there are some dark people out there and I feel sorry for some of you that have them in your life.  I can only suggest that you plan for that day when you win.

                              I'm old school too, pepper. Maybe my whole family is. I just know there's not one person that I would have to worry about doing that in my family. Even the young ones undergoing the brainwashing in the schools (which we rectify).

                              Maybe that's the difference. Values, morals and good character aren't stressed, taught or placed in high regard anymore in school like they used to be. What generations of kids are being taught now is "If it feels good, do it."

                              And it's tearing the fabric of our society and destroying our whole culture.
