My husband gets drunk because he's poor and miserable. If he was rich he'd get drunk because he was happy and wanted to celebrate and party all the time. Either way if you're a drunk you're gonna drink

The money hasn't caused this guy's problems, he has...it just becomes newsworthy cause he hit sucha big jackpot.

I don't know this for sure, but I think I remember which jackpot this refers to. If I remember right, this guy was *already* a millionaire before winning. Maybe he only had one or two million from being a business owner or something, but I think that the moral is that money didn't cause his problems here.

That's something else my husband would do, set everybody in the bar up to be loved. He did it on trips for his job when he had an expense account. They loved the booze and joked on him behind his back. If you go around flashing the big rolls of cash somebody might just kill you for it.

I would be interest to see how many lottery winners would say their quality of life *truly* improved.

yeah, didn't he mention the first thing he'd do was give 10% to his church? i remember this because they kept going on and on about how west virginia was the poorest state in the nation.

if so, he was already rich from business. like you said, the lottery ticket had nothing to do with it. if they hadn't bought the ticket, he'd be a drunk millionaire instead of the drunk multi-millionaire he is today.
