I would then make sure the winnings get direct deposited to a virtual bank, and continue living my secret "Leave it to Beaver" lifestyle in the suburbs.

Re: If You Win the Lottery

You mean I'm suppose to do something else besides two girls at the same time?

Got retiree health care through your company? What if the company goes bankrupt? Retire and go RVing full time? RVs are not structurally sound. You'll die in a fiery crash. Retire and live overseas? What if you die? Aren't you worried about your body? No, I don't think I will be able to seeing how I am dead.
