Small change for me, $1 here and $5 there. Nothing worth smiling about.
Great second post. Actually a poster named SAR I hit huge on the lotto, and now he spends his time giving it away to strangers he meets on the internet. You should PM him. His game is that he likes to play hard-to-get for a month or so before handing over your windfall, so be really persistent and don't take "no" for an answer.
People who have 2 to 3 million dollars are fools to 'invest it' pure foools.
So where do you have your money....under your mattress? You realize that there are all different types of investments running the gamut of extremely safe (US Treasuries) to extremely risky (investing in your neighbor's can't miss start up) and everything in between.
I did tax returns when I lived in NY for 2 lotto winners. Much less BUT a few million.
BOTH were broke within a few years. Biught real estate at the wrong time etc...
People who can't accumulate money rarely can manage it. There is a reason 20 percent control most of the wealth. They accumulate and manage.
This is even more perplexing as he moved to Fla right after. He's a real smuck to me. He was great consultant. Felt terrible for him. He once has the gall about 8months ago asking me to invest 25k in something with him. My response was oh so you didn't loose my #? No thanks
