    Hmm id like to think that it wouldn't change me inside but I think it would. I would like to think that i would be altruistic but I fear that it would make me much less generous than I am now, after all its nothing to give someone a tenner, but when you are dealing in millions, man you gotta be careful. Anyway id probably buy a castle and live there with my mom and dad and brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews and anyone else that i was related to and who wanted to live there.

    A homeless guy died in the freeze in Brighton city, he was a well known man. Anyway, the paper put out a bit about him and mentioned how he emptied his pockets to donate support for the shorham disaster.
    I would never empty my pockets!
    To give away everything, every last penny- no way, I need to eat tomorrow, and get a drink at the bar.
    I think you're spot on there Robbie: the more we have- the tighter we hold on to it.
    Can not imiage giving everything away. And I know I will get paid on the 20th. Maybe he was getting JSA and maybe he had something in the bank but its likely he didn't. His heart was moved and he was free to follow it. Don't think I could even pretend to be.

    Yes clearly they need to unwind, spa, massage, meditation and whisky all do the same thing.

    I think I would be more stressed over 3 million than 30 as I would want to give a lot of it away but 3 million is not that much if you are giving significant sums of it away. I'd have no problem whatsoever with winning 33 million and would ensure that my life and the lives my nearest and dearest where transformed for good.

    I think £66,000,000 jackpots are a kind of publicity-on-PCP perversity. Differently set up, two hundred families could have had a £300,000 windfall ~ what fun that would be, and spread around too, hundreds of delightful stories in local newspapers ~ much more fun and positivity than this surreal, vicarious orgy of salivating credulousness and envious somnambulation.

    The Problem with People becoming rich by Lotto is that most end up poor, due to unwise decisions.

    But then the expected return per ticket is about 45% in Germany, so is it wise to Play in the first place?
