I Have 500,000,000 Reasons Why Winning Powerball Wouldn’t Make You Happy
You have probably heard that the Powerball jackpot is now up to 500,000,000 dollars. I don't buy lottery tickets, but I have to laugh at some of the people that do. What I mean by that is some people won't buy tickets until the payout is stratospheric. So Powerball is ONLY at $100,000,000 and that's not enough for you?
To my point though...I want to ease your fears. I am not planning to really list 500,000,000 reasons why winning Powerball wouldn't make you happy. My 2nd grade abilities can barely count to 100. But, there is ample evidence that winning a mammoth prize like this can actually lead to misery. Check out this guy's story.
By the way, have you ever seen "Brewster's Millions" with Richard Pryor? Great movie.
Have I mentioned that I'm easily distracted?
Truth is if you have healthy children and/or a spouse that loves you for who you really are, you are richer than any lottery winner could dream of being.
