Default Re: Ford Ranger owner wins millions

aside from taking a dump on my boss's desk, buying the company and stuff, i would pay off my parents house and my dads business as well as pay off my house and id give it to a deserving friend or something. i then would purchase a few hundred acres of land and build a modest house right in the middle of it. lol

i have heard somewhere that if you win the lottery your expected to give a certain % to a charity, is that true?
if that was me i would give a few mill to a deserving charity, and for the hell of it i would give a bag full of money to a homeless guy just to see his reaction, probably a few homeless guys, that would be a fun day

I find that hard to believe. You win the money it is yours of course you have to immediately pay taxes.

Im sure that most of the winners donate some to a charity though. I think you would fill kinda guilty if you didnt

Expected to give a certain % to charity? It's possibly true that society, your local community, family, etc. may expect you to donate a percentage to charity... but as far as I know there is nothing mandated.

Yes, I am reviving this thread for this backwards as$ comment you made. Tell me something, if you loose your teeth as an adult because you parents did not A) enforce brushing teeth growing up as a child and B) NEVER took you to a dentist, how is that the adults fault? Don't judge before you know the facts. And before you say ya right to my comment, that is exactly what I had happen to me growing up, and I now have to wear dentures the rest of my life!

the dude had $28 in his bank account, 3 kids, and worked at a convenience store yet you want to talk shit about his teeth?

why not make fun of him for not being raised by his real parents, or that he had to struggle to pay his bills every month??

douche.

If i were him i would do something smart with my money, maybe go back to school for something i like to do and get a better paying job so that when all that money is gone i'm not stuck with a total of $20 to live off of.

The sad truth is people are financial idiots. If your not ready for money, then you cant handle the immense responsibility involved that comes with money. If I ever won the lotto, or got money inherited to me, or willed, or something, I already know I won't spend any of it outside of a place to live (think 3-4 bedroom, about 2k of space on an acre or 2). The rest I would spread to various investments for the investments would grow my money! I also wouldn't stop earning money in the various things I dabble in.
