why wouldn't you invest? especially as cheap as it is to buy in right now. the stocks will come back, it's just a matter of time... just gotta be patient. If the guy won like 100 million i can see buying something that expensive. does the guy have a decent job?

It's very common for lottery winners to go broke. In the audio book "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" By T. Harv Eker he covers a lot of the reasons this happens. Athletes, Entertainers etc also fall into the same category. A lot of it is your upbringing about money, how you view opportunity vs risk, fear of failure, fear of success, your comfort levels and management abilities. It's talks a lot of how (sustained) rich and successful people think vs your avg person and why things happen the way they do. It's dead on accurate! I highly recommend it.

On the other hand, if you're like me, I'll sit on the bulk of it. Yeah, I'll earn some low guaranteed interest rate and I'll die w/ a huge lump of wampum, but I will have something for my children at the end of the day. People in my category aren't generally good for the economy. What good is all that cash just sitting in some vault? No, I'll never win the lottery.
Don''t get bogged down w/details shooting holes in my theory. It's really my own little joke and justification as to why I'll never pick the right numbers. But, I'll keep trying just the same...
