If you had a pact with a close friend to split lotto winnings and you won, would you honor the pact?

Of course. If I had an agreement with anybody, close friend or not, to split lotto winnings I would honor the agreement. If I won I would be sharing with close friends even without an agreement.

RE: What a fucking dumbass...
I'd split it as per any prior agreement—as I'd hope someone else would with me if the situation arose.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

To just give away 7.5million dollars???? FUCK OFF! I would gladdly sell my friends into slavery for $7.5mill.

That's hypothetical, right? 'Cause it would require you to have friends. Drinking Beverage

RE: What a fucking dumbass...
Yeah. If I made a promise to one of my close friends I would. They've helped me out a lot over the years and I would like to repay their kindness for it. Plus I would be just as happy with 7 mill as 14. Take care of my debt. buy a house, a working car. pay back people that have loaned me money. maybe take those trips i always wanted.

RE: What a fucking dumbass...
When I was in China I spent a lot of time hanging around rich people intent on using my foreign-ness as a means to gain face, and willing to take me along for the ride in the process. It was enjoyable sometimes, and I did make a select few friends that just so happen to be rich as hell, but 90% of the things most of them did were pointless and boring as shit. Diamond studded iPhone, just to make it more expensive than it otherwise would have been... Like, who gives a fuck? I'm just not concerned enough with how others view me (at least not in that regards) to bother getting that kind of stuff even if I had so much money that it was nothing by comparison. The mind numbingness of having to continually pretend like there was actually something remotely interesting about these people is part of the reason I ultimately returned to the states to continue doing my own thing rather than making an attempt at getting into business with them.

I really don't think winning the lottery would change my habits that much. I wouldn't leave the Army, as I'd rather have my mountain time every month than a mansion and a bunch of random expensive stuff and boring rich friends. I'd stick with the property I just got, though having a bunch of money might cause me to advance my home building plans by a year or two. I'd still make it pretty basic, though. I want a place to live, sleep, have sex (if the opportunity were to ever present itself again), study languages, watch Walking Dead, and have a nice shower in after I return from romping around in the boonies. For all of the above, a shipping container home would work better than a multi million dollar house and be a lot less drama to deal with.

Even traveling wouldn't change much... yeah I like going new places, but I'm not much for tourist attractions. A summer teaching English to monks in Nepal would be more enjoyable than staying at fancy hotels and seeing random historical structures that other people have decided are interesting for some reason.

I'd probably have more guns, and more expensive ones Tongue

Our pact was to share "Any and all winnings." It came to $492.00 and I sent half to her even though we'd been divorced by then.

I would just jam it in the bank. Use it only for emergencies and house purchases. Then carry on with life like it never happened.

I thought this would be about lottery winner who had his balls painted gold and died because of it.

Oh well....
