  3. I actually remember seeing this guy on TV (today tonight or ACA) four or five years back. All his neighbours were complianing about the mess in the yard and the gocarts/motorbikes he and his mates were riding around the the place along with the all night parties. iirc he said if anyone tried to stop him he'd stab them. nice guy.

  4. Plonker..for most of us that sort of money would set you up for a very cushy life..no doubt he'll blow what money he gets from the sale on chemicals to go up his nose.

  5. This is the fate of a good many Lotto winners. The lottery is simply a tax for those who are bad at math.

  8. Hilarious. Some people should just not have money.
    And on another note, there of plenty of people that have no money that deserve millions.

  11. There is a cynical view that goes something along the lines of "if you make a poor man rich, then he will soon be poor again".

    Whilst I like to think it is untrue, unfortunately I think it is somewhat true for many. Certainly if you are busted arse poor in Australia, chances are you are there because of decision you've made yourself.

    Sure some people are unavoidably poor. Some are born into circumstances that make it difficult to brake the cycle, but in Australia where the opportunities are given, then you would have to say most poor people are poor as a result of their own bad judgment.

  12. I guess it's down to personal choice on what you do with money if you have it!.

    He chose to splurge... and it's all gone. I'm sure he had a good time (if he can remember!!)...

    I wouldn't say it's depressing or funny... it just is! 8-[

  13. When you're born with no right hand and no right foot, it sure is tough to brake the (motor)cycle.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.
