What all this money means to ME is....

Money means different things to different people.

This is more than just a poll...it's your chance to examine and express your True NATURE !!!

Please COMMENT about your choice..... (except for the bubble-heads who choose "rolling paper"... enough said.)

I'm already retired.  At this point in life, money means primarily security.

It means infinite financial freedom, security, exuberance, and freedom of expression that was not possible prior to a jackpot win. I am now able to buy all the physical tools necessary in order to live life to the fullest and express myself through my talents without such strictly imposed financial barriers that only hinder progress.

I Agree!

To me money is a means by which to pay for goods and services. Seems like you can never have to much of it the more you have the more you end up spending. I try and spend within my means. Prices for everything keep going up and up, every generation will have to deal with rising costs. Before long at the rate were going either the bottom will fall out or they will have to re structure the whole economic way of life. Not an easy task I hate to see what people will have to deal with 20/30 years down the road.

On a brighter note at least some will win large jackpots and possibly not have to worry about the cost of things.

In simpler terms, the BS is over.

I'm not sure if I'm considered young or old at 34.  Money to me means opportunity. The chance to get out of the storyboard and live the dreams. Visiting places, buying things I desired and and shoo away the need to take loans.

It means you will be getting real used to seeing 3 letters quite often. IRS.

Very cute! But that's not necessarily true. They do watch the transactions of the wealthy, but if you don't cheat and find all the legal loopholes, you'll be paying your taxes once a year like everyone else...just a much larger amount...or not!  I know very successful people who write off just about everything they make.  You can form a corporation and lease a company car, pay your spouse a nice salary for being your secretary, your sister for being your cleaning woman, and get a corporate apartment where your brother can live rent free. If you take a lump sum and pay your taxes for 2006, then you only need to pay the taxes on taxable earning in future years. The IRS only taxes you on the money you "touch" so just keep what you need liquid and invest most of it in deferred accounts such as annuities, bonds and some real estate.

Regarding the IRS, they bug even poor people. I was living in a trailer park in the mid 80s and earned about $2,000 "on the side" which I didn't think I had to report. (that's my story & I'm stickin to it!)  In a few years the IRS slammed me with penalties and interest.

I agree with Uff Da. I chose "happiness" because I didn't see security as an option.  All I would ever care about, besides helping other people, is having a comfortable home, a car that runs well and enough to pay my bills, a retirement plan, and a little extra for fun...and good medical care too.

I choose oppertunity. It will allow me to send my neices and nephew to the best schools in my area. The travel oppertunities will be phenominal. And most of all I would never worry about another math or biology test again.

 

Good luck to all that play tonight.

In addition to making me much more attractive to the opposite sex the one word that comes to my mind is:

Freedom!

I choose Opportunity as the closest match to what a jackpot win would mean to me... It's all about the freedom.

-freedom to live your life for you and not in the pursuit of building someone else's fortune.

-freedom to spend the time formerly spent at work in any way you choose... see much more of the family.

-freedom to learn. right now, even if I had a bit of money, the TIME isn't there to take any courses in advanced math or whatever may hold my interest.

Don't worry, plenty of gold diggers will come out of the wood-work on their own.

There must be something wrong with me, Jim. Every time I meet a millionaire, I just can't seem to find an attraction. Darn!
