So everyone is constantly going on about how they would buy/gift their family money, cars, houses, etc...

Personally I would give them a few gifts and a bit of money here and there but what about the friends?

 

Could you see yourself buying your friends houses and cars or other extravagant gifts? I know I couldn't lol Sleepy

Also on a side note... Once you win the lottery are you going to keep your current friends? I know you probably wouldn't be able to make any new 'true' friends, but what if your current friends keep coming for handouts and expecting you to give them a free ride. What then?

    With this latest 550 miilon jackpot...I'd probaly give cash so they can buy what they want and they can worry about the taxes on what they buy and the money I give...cause think about it if your friends are broke and barely making it, you buy them a oh lets say a 350,000 dollar house could they afford the property taxes on that each year?

            I would probably give good friends like 13K each per year as to not trigger any taxes for them.  And if they were married with kids maybe 13K each person per year.... Also, I am contemplating starting several new businesses (In the field I am already in and know very well) and I could also employ them at a higher than normal salary.  Truthfully I am not 100% sure, I will need to iron out the details with my advisors. 

            I also feel like, you (friends/family) could have bought a ticket just like me and won so I don't owe you anything just because I won but if I want to help then I will.  My personal written rule is that if you come to me and ask for money the answer will automatically be no, period. End of story.  I will not be treated like a human ATM machine.
