I don't buy their story.  I fill butane lighters regularly, even a grill torch set that takes almost a can and a half of gas.  To release enough butane vapor into the kitchen for a pilot light to ignite it  you'd have to empty at least 3 if not 4 cans of butane.  If they've done that they're not filling a couple lighters, they're making butane hash oil; which would be awesome if they'd done it outside.

Meth and marijuana?  That's for poor people.  If I won the lottery, it would be cocaine all the way.

tirob: If you're poor, and you win the lottery or otherwise come into a lot of money fast, the most difficult thing you have to deal with is all of your friends and relatives, most of whom are likely to be poor, too, and many of whom start coming around with their hands out.  I think that this is what undoes a lot of lottery winners.


In the UK lottery winners can choose to stay anonymous. Why any winner would give that up I have no idea. If I was a conjoined twin and I won I'd find a way to keep it a secret from my twin.

/It's also tax free here as well.
//Ten million to one odds though.

Well I guess that's one way to get my city on Fark. Can we just get back to the stories about our state government being sued for in sufficiently finding public schools?

It's simple. Keep half to live on/invest, play with the other half.

steamingpile: Proves stupid people will always be stupid so quit giving them money, they choose to suffer through life and no amount of money will fix that problem.

I remember watching the story of that guy from Tennessee or Kentucky winning the lottery and he spent something like $3 million his first weekend he claimed it in Vegas, then bought a large mansion in some exclusive Florida neighborhood taking up about half of his winnings, then bought exotic cars, boats, jet skis and a shiat load of drugs.

He was filing bankruptcy in a short time later and I think is back at his old job while living in his grandmothers trailer or he was dead, I forget which.

Stupid people gonna stupid, money does not change stupid.


Thousands of people have won various lotteries. Just because the only ones you read about are the stupid ones, that doesn't make all lottery winners stupid.

I would certainly invest a good chunk of it and give to family and friends as well.
I would, however, go on a marijuana binge as well.
