If I won and I hate to say it but Dave Edwards had the right idea by moving to a neighborhood where his money wouldnt stand out....Now I also like the idea of the great wide open but if someone wanted to plan an attack against you...unless you have a 24/7 private army your screwed... The wealthy who will be snobbish to you may be better they think they are above you and hopefully will leave you alone....but that's just my take how about you?? Which scenario works better for you?

    I have no desire to live in a snobby neighborhood... depending on the amount of the win, I'll stay in the same state with a better house, travel and a few toys.

          I Agree!  I think if one is always worried about how someone will treat them or fitting in, the problem may be with the "worrier."  I am sure the vast majority of the LP people would fit in whereever and I cannot say I ever worried once about "fitting in" in my life. There are "snobby" or rude people at all economic levels and it really comes down to personal choice. If someone dislikes someone, it may have little to nothing to do with money or status.

            With this weeks jackpot my answer would be both. I like the entertainment and nightlife and energy of a big city but I also need quiet time. As for labelling a neighborhood as rich snob - how would you know if you haven't lived there. Also if you had serious FU money then what do you care about what your neighbors think. And thirdly, in affluent neighborhoods with large homes I doubt the neighbors spend much time interacting with each other, snobbishness would be a non issue.

              with MM and PB as high as they are right now, why only have one house? I could see myself living in a gated community with all my expensive toys and then have another house on a large acreage off the grid as a bug-out location.

                    Like others said, if you are concerned about what your neighbors think, you are not going to be comfortable anywhere.

                    One of ZZ Top members lives in the manned gated neighborhood near me, & yes, he sports that beard. While I have not seen him, my coworkers who live here have seen him tooling around in his Maserati. Me? I'm too busy looking at the car to pay attention to the driver. LOL. My point is, do you think this guy cares what his neighbors think of his beard and long hair? I'd say he looks probably a lot like rdg's avatar. 

                    Short story - my ex and I used to drive down to Nuevo Laredo (back in the days when it was safe) to go to the horse races. We would drive past the public parking around back to the owners' parking. We'd drive right by the guard like we belonged there, and head up to the owners' club. Free dinner, free drinks, bets taken at the table. Act like you belong there, and everyone accepts it.

                          I'd rather my kids grew up around snobs in the neighborhood than the people I grew up around. And yes, those type of neighborhoods have great security so I would definitely be moving in that type of environment if I won big.

                              There are plenty of wealthy people who made their fortunes other than via the lottery and they live in various places and do fine.

                              If you win and are really after safety, a town near where I grew up in Northern Jersey had the safest street in town - three houses in a row that beloinged to the mayor, the local Capo de Capo, and the Chief of Police.

                              Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                              Lep

                              There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
