As I watch some reruns of the Lottery changed my life series...The one woman who won 112 million, she split it and ended up with 22 million...but she was looking at buying a plane...they showed her an 8 million dollar one and a 4 million dollar one...I'm like yeah maybe you can afford it BUT....where you gonna keep it? Who's gonna work on it when it needs mechanic work...you gotta put oil and gas in it, taxes etc. etc. etc....Then she wanted a Rolls Royce Ghost....who's gonna work on it? You can't take that kinda car to your shade tree mechanic LOL........People want 22,000 sq. ft. mansions....again how much will the light bill be each month? Who's gonna cut the grass, clean the pool, clean the house...etc.etc.etc....Remember the upkeep on stuff BEFORE you buy it.....

    Thats how dumb people think and the lotteries promote that kind of dream state thinking. In AZ they have spent millions to tell people they can live the life of their dreams when they win $1000, a week for a year.

                  Point is most of the people live so far below even normal level, that they do not understand that even after winning big they'll simply reach normal level and save some, they are not going to be successful rich people only because of the money in their account. Successfully rich means being so in a long run, with constant big income coming, and money being spent very carefully, wisely. Big chank of money does not make one suddenly wise about money, or they would be already rich without lottery.
