    Your question has been answered well by rcbbuckeye. Financial Management 101 is a class that expains all that and more. IMHO it should be taught in high schools given its importance in todays complex financial environment.

        helpmewin, I know what is the reason to complain. Lottery impoverishes the population of players, a lot,  considering that the level of impoverishment is higher than yearly inflation percentage, in most lotteries immensely higher.  Even after someone wins, money comes, of course, from the population of players that gets poorer and poorer, yet even those money have to be taxed. This seems outrageous. To hope that tax money will do good for the country, who knows, do we have ways of checking where the tax money goes? Lottery , supposedly, also gives money to the causes, social programs, sports, colleges, etc. Let's just hope that this is the case. This would be the only excuse to ever play lottery without feeling ashamed, because the game is unethical.

        if you don't want to play the lottery because you think things are so unfair then don't play..

         

        like cigarettes if you want to smoke then don't complain if you get lung cancer...

            i don't understand why would anyone complain, after all if a person should happen to WIN BIG it's Still FREE money right?Yes Nod

            i on the other hand would never take the cash option.Smiley

            Personally I think that a winner should not be taxed. Your money for the gambling was already taxed and net.

            The payouts are already low as the lottery keeps money for itself. Pattel gets his share too.

              I Agree!

               

              Let's think in figures.

              You earned a two thousand USD, and after taxes, insurance and other, you still have a bit more than half left?

              You play with money that you could save for later or just new cloths and fresh food. (...)

              You win 4 millions and let's say the taxes take 1 million, you have 3 millions left.

              Of the 3 millions for anything you buy, there are maybe 30% taxes in the price.

              So 4*0.75*0.70 would be the net.

              Every year there is inflation, so in twenty years this money is worth around half while the interests cannot cover the inflation.

              Eventually you speculate and loose big, as you are the small fish in the pond, while bankers are the crocs around.

                They forgot to forbid the pipes.

                  Those pipes are for tabacco and whippet parties.

                      Good ?s all.

                      When 7-11 got started it was open from 7am til 11pm back in the slow old days,

                      if you were to start that endeavor today you would call it 24/365.

                      same as motel 6, rooms were $6 a night, want something a little nicer ? then your choice is super 8,

                      of course now that would be motel 68 and super 82.

                        Actually fish can get cramps and bloating after eating. If you have pond fish, you are not supposed to feed them late in the day since the food remains in their stomach when they slow down and it promotes baterial growth.  More than you ever wanted to know about fish I am sure.Coffee
