Canadian 18 year old lottery winner

Canadian girl won the lottery and chose $1,000 a week for life instead of a $1,000,000 lump sum.

What would you do?

Take the lump sum for me Clive. Buy a house and have a holiday, live the rest of my life as normal not worrying about rent or mortgages. (In b4 Tory). No guarantee I won’t fall dead tomorrow.

grand a week, please

Weekly income, no questions. Could still buy a swish home, wouldn’t have to worry about working, holiday every so often, brilliant.

  • $1,000,000

Grand a week for sure.

A million at once would be a bit overwhelming

Go do a masters and then work in an area I’m interested in or start my own business or social enterprise

Grand a week pls

Grand a week for life seems perfect. Enough money to enable you to have a comfortable life but without any of the stresses and mental health issues that come with winning a big prize.

$1,000 a week is only worth $250 a week by the time you’re 80

who gives a fuck though, you’ll only be needing to buy tea and biscuits at eighty

Would still need to find a job paying at least 3k a year if you wanted a decent life

The prize isn’t linked to inflation? Hmm…

nope… BUT apparently the $1,000 p/w is tax free and the $1,000,000 is not

for some reason. fuck knows why.

Yeah, but the lottery company now have an incentive to kill her, and they’ve got the resources as well.

Wait, how much? If I won megabucks then obvs, but If was just a million or so then nah - I’d piss a million up the wall pretty quickly

The younger you are, the more sense it makes to take the weekly income rather than the lump sum. I’m an old fucker, so I’d go lump sum.

I’d have to take the grand a week. I’d do a million in in five years.

Fucking imagine not having to get out of bed knowing some daft bell was going to stick a bag of sand in your account every week.

I’d take the grand a week. And then lock myself away In a single room in my house, having doctors give me health checks every day and inevitably drinking my very own elixir of life
