well if I would have hit the powerball I would have put that down

no inheritance here, self made...the $$$ just gradually accumulated so it wasn't really an "event"

Things like getting married, the birth of my child and landing a super job all rank around the most impactful of my life changing events, however, getting a very high draft lottery number (well over 300) is without a doubt #1 in my mind. I can recall watching the lottery on TV. At that time, a low number (<200) would have most likely sent me to Vietnam and to who knows what.

I'm with you on that. Only I was sitting in an Air Force barracks at tech school when I listened to the draft lottery. As I recall, mine was over 200, but it really didn't impact my life.
