How to Lose $3 Million in Six Years - Yahoo! Buzz

The Buzz Log - How to Lose $3 Million in Six Years - Yahoo! Buzz:
"Callie Rogers was just 16 when she won a whopping $3 million in the lottery. Six years later, she reports that she blew untold sums on drugs, partying, exotic cars, and breast implants. A staggering $730,000 went to designer clothes alone, Ms. Rogers explains in an article from AOL. Says Rogers: 'I honestly wish I'd never won the lottery money — and knowing what I know now I should have just given it all back to them.' She's currently left with around $32,000.

In these trying economic times, Ms. Rogers will likely find little sympathy. Still, it's worth noting that she's hardly the first big winner who wished she'd never bought a ticket."

Not exactly what Jensen was talking about when he coined free cash flow problem, but an extreme case of it.

I think there's your answer on what the government should be spending the "stimulus" money on... Just give it to her.
