Try Me

Each of these eight lottery winners, having won the nation's largest lottery jackpot ever, is going to net over $15M when all is said and done. Statistically, each of them is going to end up miserable, as friends and family turn against them, and as they demonstrate that most people are incapable of coping with such an enormous windfall of cash.

Now, I don't play the lottery. It is a waste of money. But I am willing to participate in an experiment. Do I have what it takes to withstand the trials of becoming instantaneously and incredibly wealthy? Go ahead world, give me $15 million dollars, and let's see what I do with it. I dare you!
