    Freetofly Diving deep into the abyss

    Sometimes, people are just lucky. I have a relative that was totally poor all his life, bearly making it by, but good people and happy.
    They won the Mega millions a couple of years ago and just so happened to fall into a great bunch of financial advisors.
    This money did not change them. They still live in the same home but are investing accordingly. They give to the poor, help family members and so good to the retired population in their area with their utilities. Most lottery winners lose everything because they don't make good investments and spend on things they really don't need. This happens to the rich also, it the smart investors that keep the money.
    So many Americans live outside their means and then complain that they can't save anything. iiiiiii
    Okay now my mind is scrabbled eggs, shit.
