    I think everyone who seriously plays lottery  should go through financial mamagement classes, ahead of time, like now, so when they win big they have no problems dealing with large amounts of money. If they do not win, at least they have a long lasting skill that will help them manage whatever they have, successfully.

    I am saying this because I am tired and frustrated to hear about all those big winners screwing their lives instead of thriving. Such facts only spook people away from lottery. Of course, part of their problem is that evevryone around wants their money: people, services, banks, companies, lawers, causes, you name it. Having enormous money demands discipline, and if person was a gambler, then big money will only accentuate such behavior. If person did not know what his life is about, he or she or they is an easy target to fall into bad habits. All the people who keeps loosing in lottery, they end up giving money to unworthy people, unworthy deeds. Because of it lottrey has a bit evilish character to it. It makes sense to dress into "Lottery Ticket" costume for Hallowin.

      I stay away from any show about lottery players,lol. I don't care to see people (in my opinion) wasting money on extravagant things. As for a show about losing it all...well...let me just say....I stay away from any show about lottery players :)

        I'd much rather just read about it here on LP. Watching TV is a bit of a rarity for me these days, but when I do I prefer to watch Sci-fi, FOX News, HGTV and DIY programming.

          Yes, I would watch a show on lottery winners going broke... personally, I would be able to manage it.  I've made alot of money in the past and lost it all, still trying to recover.  I won't make the same mistake when I win.

              I wouldn't watch such a show, I don't find others' misfortune to be entertaining. I think all of this exploitive programming on TV has to end, it's all just sickening to me.

                Well P6..... you could also take it as a free education of what NOT to do with newly acquired wealth. The old idea of learning from histories(in this case other folks) mistakes should make a savy person take a moment to think and say " Hmmmmm, I ain't going down that road".............Just food for thought............

                    exactly why I would watch it, to learn from their mistakes.
