    Quoted from mcluvin:

    So a car payment each month towards lotto? It's your money, so spend it as you wish, but damn!

    $325 a month doesn't buy much of a new car. Plus insurance, fuel, maintenance....

    Besides, how much a year do some here spend on pinball machines? Basically I say "Don't tell me how to spend my money".

    Quoted from mcluvin:

    And I didn't tell him how to spend his money. Just in terms of satisfaction for money spent, I don't get it at all. I think most of us buy lottery tickets knowing we're probably going to lose. A couple bucks a week? So what. I'll pay that price for a chance to dream a bit. A few hundred per month every freaking month?
    As for pinball machines, mine are all worth more than I paid for them. Can't say that about most hobbies.
    You are right. You don't get much car for $325 per month unless you lease. If you are throwing it away anyway, why not? Hell, my daughter's payment on a new Turbo Civic is only ~$350 per month and she'll own it in 5 years. Those are surprisingly nice little cars.

    I guess it was the "but damn" statement that stuck out. Everyone has their way of having fun. Everyone has different levels of savings, income, income streams (some have defined benefit pensions for life) and choose to spend how they want. The retired teachers probably have a car or two and don't need a third one so they play the lottery with the excess fun money.

    Maybe they have funded pinball machines, vacations and don't have other hobbies that require what they play.

    Good for them and I hope they are happy. You too, by the way.
