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.
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.
