There are so many strange bits to this story. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2010/01/06/us/AP-US-Missing-Lottery-Winner.html "LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- In 2006, Abraham Shakespeare -- a truck driver's assistant who lived with his mother -- won $30 million in the Florida lottery. His good fortune may have cost him his life." Truck driver's assistant? That's a job that I did not know existed. I know you can drive in a team, so one driver sleeps to keep rolling. But, wouldn't that make you co-drivers? So what's an assistant? But, the article goes on to say that Shakespeare bought a Nissan, a pawn-shop Rolex and a $1 Million house. Not even a Mercedes and a new Rolex? Focus: You win the lottery of $30 million. (He took the payout of around $17 Million) What's the first thing you do with your new money? What do you buy? How do you invest? Do you give any to charity, church, institutions?
