Did he do the right thing, Veeky Forums?
I can't wait to google this guy in a year or two. Nine figure lotto winners always ruin their lives in interesting and novel ways.
Yeah, he'd probably do something retarded like buy XLM
not wanting to turn 9 figures into 9,000,000 figures
lottery winners have 120x chance of getting murdered by a family member
What shitcoin would you guys go all in with this kind of money?
parents will the local lottery
850k after taxes
continue to be slobs that sit around doing nothing spending very little money.
Any interesting examples?
That's why you either
B) Give your entire family -some- money
C) disappear and give money
If I had that much money, my family is small. I'd pay them off equally and disappear for 5-10 years.
What if immediately after winning you write a will saying all your money goes to charity. Let them know and maybe they won't bother.
Nice, just bought 100k.
He wrote me out if the will
Lets kill him
Literally how it will go. If I won this amount i tell absolutely no one until ive set up small trust for each of my important family members. I call at least 5 estate attorneys for advice.
Buy all available LINK
if youre not a beta bitch you would buy into bitcoin or ethereum, not some shitcoin. he can of course afford to if he wanted
ALL OF THEM
US lotteries are ridiculously huge, it's crazy that you get solo winners.
Everytime we get a big one here in Australia (like 50+ million) there's usually several winners.
not converting your entire will into Ethereum and depositing it into a smart contract trust fund that scans social media and public record for degeneracy like racemixing, drug use, or not having at least 3 children before 30 and cutting them off for violating the parameters.
It's like you don't want to die saving the white race
421M at 20 yo
Wew, id be scared if I were in his shoes, the jealousy and rage people will have against you, I would flee the country
I would put like 1/4 of the money in ETH. Use that to buy shitcoins at my pleasure but still hold majority ETH
I just wouldn't really tell anyone. I'd pay off all my student loans, my parents debt, give 1-2million to my best friend, then be done.
Lotto winners are publicly displayed lel. GOod luck trying to keep it low.
Nah he should have bought $UFR
You can hire people to do it for you.
you can collect anonymously, you know
Well if is smart he'd hire some protection if he was afraid of something happening. Personally if I were him I would put that money to work into some form of safe scale-able business, let other people really run the shit and grow it slow, then you have millions and a company to keep everything going well after you're gone.
is it bad that my first thought was about how much crypto i could buy if i had all that money?
jesus...I really hope he finds a good financial planner.
But he's only fucking 20 so I doubt it.
But I'm not white.
Jack Whittaker. Already earned himself a comfy retirement with $15 million and won a 315 million jackpot. Shouldn't be a problem for him to manage that, right?
Family and friends milked him, neighbors and strangers constantly harassed him, people sent him sob stories that he fell for, sued many times over for millions for petty offenses. Drugs, strippers, affairs, and a divorce to top it off and he's now broke.
There are quite a few interesting lottery stories. This one just stands out because he was already crazy wealthy and managed to fall victim to the lottery curse.
no because i thought the same and you'd be a multi billionaire if you know what you're doing
This is what pisses me off about modern society.
420 million is more actual 'wealth value' than any single individual human being could actually produce on their own - even the most ingenious person on earth or the most enterprising can only create something or exploit opportunities within the context of society.
Yet here's society, the same society that bags me out for being a NEET, handing over this amount to one single person randomly - when this money could easily have been invested in MANY people with a much better result - if you'd split it up into $2 million amounts, you could liberate 210 people into a state of leisure and freedom to pursue their own interests and activities - and even if 95% of those people ended up doing nothing with it - there'd be more people actually doing something of value with that 5%.
Instead society plays this game of encouraging everyone to want to be SUPER rich, which creates resentment, anxiety, discord, jealousy - and ultimately lots of waste.
I personally know of several projects I could get started on if I was just given enough to get by without working - which would require less than the $2 million easily, and all of these projects would benefit people and animals and the world.
No one actually wins, the lottery commission just pays a randomly-selected bum $10-50,000 dollars to be a "winner". It's really just a scam run by the government to funnel money from dumb people back to them.
What a beta mentality.
Found the jelly ass commie
just one i could be a whale in. i wanna be a whale.
also how do you be a whale? like is it a real thing or a real person? WHO IS THE WHALE WHY ARE THEY IN EVERY COIN
well said, comrad
the way you wealth is distributed and used should be up to me, not you.
And retard that’s a mere fraction of the revenue that the lottery generates anyways. Those 400 million dollars are an incentive to get people to pay a tax and you’re not seeing the other billions of revenue that the lottery generates in tax revenue for your welfare state. I’m not even mentioning the amount of taxes that is then taken out of the winners jackpot by the taxman after the fact
if I was just given enough to get by without working
you have no motivation. you blame the world for your situation. that's not the attitude of someone who would start, let alone complete. any successful project. let alone SEVERAL projects.
you need to take responsibility for yourself and your situation.
In no way am I suggesting socialism\communism or state redistribution. The lottery itself in most countries is run by the state - in the UK if you buy a lottery ticket you're contributing money towards films which will pile on against "white males", etc. I'm saying this type of distribution is ridiculous. Keep fighting those straw-men, though.
You're wrong, I'm making the best of my situation as I can. I'm building my wealth at this stage, but I still resent the ridiculousness of redistribution as it exists today. If I didn't have to spend my time on crypto and other endeavours, I could be doing much more productive things that would produce wealth and social value for far more people.
You're right and wrong. You're right that there's no real lottery winner but the reason the lottery exists is to catch time travelers. If somebody actually does win the lottery(which is impossible, they select numbers that nobody has taken), they're taken into captivity by the US government and interrogated.
if crypto was not valuable to humanity then it would not be profitable
this is the most idiotic thing I've read all day
Amazon and Youtube were all started from garages with investor money, you don't need a 2 million dollar gift to make something big, but you do need to be less of a pussy
Some states differ, but also you can have every set up before you go to collect. Call an estate attorney and have various trusts set up for when you collect. One for you, one for your mom, ex girlfriend, her new black boyfriend, whatever.
420 million is more actual 'wealth value' than any single individual human being could actually produce on their own
Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Elon Musk say hi.
Also its just a tax. Splitting the jackpot produces less revenue.
the extent of your argument
did you ask for your parents permission before accessing the internet?
