Wow.  Terrible technique.  I expected more, given that he's asian.

Y'all just don't know about the secret techniques

If I had to pick a home base I sincerely doubt it would be in the US. French countryside, Cayman islands, maybe even Ghana. Only upsides to the US are the opportunities to make money and the quality of healthcare. Winning the lotto makes those advantages irrelevant.

He's the Ichiro Suzuki of ping pong. His form is all wrong, but his results can't be denied.

You can become famous by being the first legitimate person to want to wire transfer a large sum of money from Africa elsewhere

Late to the thread, but I chose Turbo S.

That being said, even if I was a billionaire I think I'd probably just get a Porsche 911 Carrera 4s (assuming it still comes it a manual). Nice all weather capability in a fun package.  :ohyeah:

One, those are both huge.  YUGE even :lol:

And two, there's a lot more to the US than just that.

What's insane about it is that I said it. Why would anyone possibly want to live anywhere but Ohio? Insanity indeed.

Again, if one won the lotto, one wouldn't need to make money, or live in the US to make their nest egg grow.

2, if one won the lotto, they could just come back to the US for any emergency shit, and with that money could live a healthy stress-free lifestyle that would diminish the need of constant medical care in the first place, at least until very old age.

Very radical concepts for you, I know. I will go slower next time.

Some (although not a lot) of time in Other Countries has convinced me that the US has a lot more to offer than that, and I don't even know where to start, but the phrase "human rights"'comes to mind very quickly.

It depends a lot on the country in question. Winning the lottery enables the luxury of choice that would make such distinctions irrelevant. Nobody here would take their multi millions and move to Syria.

And I have spent multiple months at a time out of the country. I'm wondering if Mr. H has spent more than a week at a time out of Ohio

It does give you the luxury of choosing which country your money would support.

I'd probably buy residences in London and Paris, depending on the size of the lottery. If it's one of those pathetic $40m lotteries, I might just have to be satisfied with paying off my student loans, credit cards, and maybe buying a soda.

I grew up in California.  Lived in Detroit for 3-4 months.  Traveled a ton for work and pleasure.  Been through a good portion of Europe, been to Germany 5 or 6 times, and lived there for a summer.  I've seen plenty to know that I have it pretty good in Ohio.

London, yes. Paris probably not. Nice maybe, but more likely something a little less crowded. Honfleur maybe.

Yea, I would not want to set up shop in any big city again. If I did England or France it would be in the countryside, and even then only for a couple weeks out of the year as their weather is so shitty.

Cities are cool in limited doses. I'd keep an apartment in London perhaps. Go see the cool shows there whenever. Fly in for bangers and mash. Have a tailor I know by first name only.

But I couldn't live there forever.

But the best roads are in the countryside. Plus people are generally shitty, and I thought you were a fellow misanthrope.

I feel the same about areas that aren't cities.  Nice to visit, but I couldn't live there.
