    One quick way to destroy your life over night, win the lottery!

    So picture it, you're driving down the road in your nice new Zonda/Lambo/Fezza/Porker/Mazza you pull up at the lights. people are eye balling your fancy car and of course you. But you know that you won it in a raffle, a raffle, the shame!!! every thing you ever do or buy is down to winning a raffle.

    So if you lost it all over night could you reproduce the wealth?

    Right rant over, the lottery really grinds my gears!:x

    Raffle or not, I'll take it! A couple of years living the high-life is better than none. Not sure I'd buy a tiny schlong car though.

    I'd bet you a pound that if you won the £117million you after say 5 years will be either:

    1. Hooked on crack
    2. Hooked on smack
    3. Hooked on coke
    4. Hooked on sherbert
    5. Hooked on cheese:biggrin

    I too dream of making it big, the tiny schlong car, the even smaller schlong power boat, and the even nano schlong sized home in the med but I'd rather earn then through the sweat of my brow and my meagre genetically inherited passed down through DNA Talents.

    I would not mind say winning £100k, it would change nothing substantial, pay off the mortgage etc, but £117mill is just an gross sum of money.

    The key thing to remember is this;

    "To turn £100 into £110 is work. To turn £100 Million into £110 Million is inevitable"

    You guys may as well not put it on because I'm going to win this one gents.

    I fully intend to be hooked on hot, loose women to be honest.

    I've always said that if you want to get ahead in life, you should have your vices all planned and sorted out beforehand. :biggrin

    I've withdrawn about 600 quid in £100 notes once. Was magic, but frighteningly nerve-wracking.

    The most I've had was about £6000 in cash after I did a bank job :blink or the real reason was I was transfering money from one account to another.

    I won a jackpot on one of the fruit machines at the casino, and that was 4k - i thought they'd write me a cheque or something, but gave me 4k in 50 notes, in a public counter with everyone watching me. to say i was about myself was an understatement, anyone within 2 feet of me was getting a punch

    ended up calling my mate at 2:30am asking him to drive into bristol town centre to pick me up :D
