Winning the lottery, would it really change your life?

    I would donate everything to the Watchtower Society to buy my way into the annointed class so I can go to heaven... NOT! I'd rather rock out in Hell, listening to Heavy Metal with Uncle Luci, than being stuck for eternity with winged robots...

    Yes it would change my life a great deal. I am rather poor and live on about $20 a month for groceries (which is enough because I have a huge garden in summer and freeze a lot of stuff). I make great money at work, but my "busy" time lasts only 2 months out of the year, and for the rest of the year, I only have 1 shift a week, so the money I make in 2 months has to last the rest of the year.

    This means that on average, I live on about $400 a month. Rent is $200, electricity and phone each around $50 and internet service is $10. Unless I have other expenses (like repairs, or someone's birthday coming up) I keep $20 for groceries and use the remaining money to pay off hospital bills. I still have about $4,000 to pay in hospital bills.

    If I had a million dollars, I would definitely give half of it away to friends, charity organizations and people who really need it. With the other half I would pay off my hospital bills, buy a pound of smoked salmon, 10 pounds of Belgian endive and 10 boxes of Belgian truffles (all of those are too expensive for my budget and I have been craving them for years), and I would put the rest aside and not waste it.

    JH, come on now? Do you really have to ask? I have my own family, I have 12 brothers and sisters, my mom is still alive, and I can't tell you how many nieces and nephews (and that's just on my side of the family) that I have. I'd, probably, be broke the next day. So, I guess you could say that I would still be the same person. I'd still have to work to make ends meet.

    it would probably open some doors
    (and maybe close some too...i like my privacy/obscurity)
    i agree with the "more of me" theory
    and i think that managed right, it could contribute to, or perhaps expedite some cool changes i'm alredy workin' on :)

    Well, once more, I didn't win....

    I've never bought a lottery ticket. Always felt like throwing money away. Might try it sometime just for fun.
