Thread: would you

  1. #1

    would you

    http://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/world/...cid=spartandhp

    A hospital worker won the power ball in the U.S last week 758 million dollars and now the police are out side her house protecting her from people who are asking for money. I am really pleased for her that she won and i am sure she will help out local charities etc but for people to besiege her and beg for money is down right sad.
    If one of your friends won a fortune would you beg them for money? I dont know what it would be like not knowing when your next meal is coming from, but i dont think i would beg a lottery winner for money. I hope she moves out soon and hires a decent lawyer to look after her.

    What could you do with all that money anyway? I wouldn't beg anyone for money but that said if I have money to spare I would look after my friends and family without thinking twice. I really wouldn't want that amount of money though. It's just obscene.

    I would! I know exactly what I'd do with lots of it! I would make sure that all friends and family were sorted and had enough to live comfortably on. I'd buy a DWD holiday retreat somewhere lovely near the sea - probably an awesome castle in South Wales! Obviously commissioning the wonderful Jarre to do all the renovations and making it Suzi friendly - also with pool, gym, cinema, music studio etc....

    I wonder how much intrest she would get on that. I agree with stella that if i won i would look after my friends and family. In the report it says that people have been knocking on her neighbours doors trying to find out where she lived. Sometimes winning a lot of money is a curse rather than a blessing.

    No I wouldn't beg anyone for money but I wouldn't turn it down if offered
    I believe if you wear enough pretty lipstick, sparkly jewellery and great shoes, no one will notice the size of your ass

    I'd be happy to take part of that curse for her

    I wouldn't beg or ask for money. And if I won a large sum of money, I'd opt to remain anonymous.

    You seen the new lifts Germany has developed that goes sideways, that would be good in a castle, dial a room and zip.

    I would design and build a high tech house in japan for me, lol, build a retreat, sort my back out with surgery in japan (oh and other things, they are very good in the health fields there) Got to agree witht he music studio plus for me a vast array of vintage synthesizors and some modern ones with recording equipments etc.) , hydrotherapy pool is another and in japan tap into the hydrothermal water like they do at onsesns and have my very own hot spring bath house while also heating the house and using the hot spring water to make hot water, all green, with wind turbines and solar panels so i can be off grid if need be

    In the U.S. Magie you cant have that option. Part of the terms and conditions for entering is you must take part in a few news conferences.
