Does anyone actually know someone who's won millions, thousands, etc.?


Just remembered this now. A family from my home town won $213 million ($110 million after taxes, lump sum option). One of their daughters was my age.

As far as I know they never fell into any of the 'lottery trappings' that happens when people win this sum of money. Probably because they had a good amount of money to begin with, and actually had ambition/goals in life.

A friend of mine's mother is schizophrenic and obsessed with the lottery. She walks around town all day picking up receipts and assorted garbage and believes God is sending her lottery numbers through trash. She writes random numbers all over the walls of her house, mumbles them all day, etc. Oh, and goes to like 6 movies every weekend thinking that weird ciphers in films tell her how to win the jackpot. Fucking creeped me out. Once my friend and I needed a ride from her and gave her cash for gas. She started to fill up the car but then just ran into the store and bought lottery tickets. We were like 14 and had to take the bus instead.

Ah, good times...

Why? Winning the lottery once makes no difference to the chances of winning it again. Some people could keep playing and never win, some people could win 10 million every week. They're completely unrelated events
