In between jobs, got a temporary gig which was only supposed to last two weeks. It consisted of making followup calls to people who signed up for this online promotion service (think Groupon, but a different company), and entering their info into a spreadsheet. Freaking elementary for a seasoned IT support guy like me.

There was me, and another temp doing the same thing. We were both let go after four hours, no reason given. Pretty much laughable now, but I was so aggravated at the time considering I really needed a job, even a temporary one. Good news: Company is no longer in business. That's what you get for treating temps like crap.

Valid concern I suppose. also.... I was thinking after I posted my comment, I can see why people in their later years of life, would take the annuity.

I think we all should watch the 30 for 30 episode titled "Broke". It's on netflix.

as for me:

Get some financial advisors to assist with taxes/planning.

Setup a trust and do whatever I can to claim anonymously.

TAKE THE ANNUITY!!!! Seriously, I have no idea why 95+% of lotto winners are so fucking stupid and take the cash option. You get far less taxes taken out by taking the annuity, and it also prevents you from blowing your wad in two years.

Payoff car, and other debts.

Travel. See the World.

ride more rollercoasters.

Donate some.

Invest plenty. 

Live life, but not too much. Keep the wealth as long as I can by not splurging all of it. Seriously, the annuity helps with this, and so does putting money away.

Watch the ESPN 30 for 30 episode titled "Broke".

"My point - if the goal is being set for life (with solid decisions factored in) - you don't need to be stupid rich. You just need a nice lump of  $300,000 - $500,000"

This is true, but more young adults just simply aren't that smart with their money, especially if you go from being dirt poor to having all that money.
