Would you consider someone who won a billion dollar advertised jackpot a billionaire? A billion dollar advertised jackpot would probably be about $654 million lump sum.

Personal definition is no, in my opinion.

You wouldn't say you had Ten bucks in your pocket, when in actuality you only had Five bucks right?

The jump from million to billion is a big one.

    what if they took the billion dollar annuity instead of the lump sum? Maybe they can make the case that they are an annuity billionaire.

    Someday you will die. Does that make you a corpse?

      no that would make someone a future corpse.  What are you saying? In order for someone to be considered a billionaire right now, they need to have a billion dollars right now?

        My opinion yes.... If u don't have a,billion dollars, you aren't a billionaire... Just coz I can work 20 years and make a million dollars doesn't make me a millionaire

        I wish I may, I wish I might...

          If your net worth isn't a billion, your not a billionaire.

          Can a fifteen year old minor legally have sex with an adult, because they are close to the age of eighteen. What?

          Close would apply in horseshoes however.  Wink

              You will never be "rich" enough to be "punished".  None of us will.  Stop whining.

              Also, provide proof of these "75% tax rate" plans.

              Wrong again, those of us who get up and go to work are being puinished, that BS, is going to end when enough of us decide to stop working, Do you think everyone here is as poor and unmotivated as you ? Most of the wealthiest American have already moved their money out of the country, many have given up their American citizenship, What exactly do you think is happening in France? 75% tax rate, thats what.

              Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

              For a lead role in a cage?

                Sounds like you answered your own question....654 million IS NOT a billion.....but you'd be hard pressed to find someone who won that would care what you called them....As long as you don't call them.......broke....

                    I don't whine, that's your M.O.

                    Want proof? Go look it up, numbnuts.

                    Then come back and give me a report.

                    Do it now.
