A couple of days ago on WalletPop I did a post on a Canadian lottery winner who waited almost a year to cash in his ticket. I surmised that his C$3.6 million winnings could have netted him C$100k even in a simple savings account or certificate of deposit. With a little more aggressive investment, even more than that over the year.
And I can always count on our super intelligent readership to leave some mighty fine comments, like this one:
I believe Tracy doesn’t have a clue what she is talking about. She may be full of knowledge but possess little wisdom.This is what happens when you let women get an education. I will bet you that tracy makes over 100 K a year and has mortgages, credit card bills, student loans and is otherwise up to debt to her ears because she is too “refined” for the likes of eating at a steak country buffet for ten bucks and wants to boost her own ego by paying over 100 bucks at a “fancy smancy” restaurant for the same piece of meat. I am sorry I read her statements but if you let an idiot drive they will most likely crash.
But I am glad that someone let me get an education.
