I get those lottery e-mails from time to time and like to leave them unopened for a wile just thinking "what if...." inevitably they equate to "Great news you have won £10 which has been paid into your account!"
However Mark, if you are sitting on £157m, I would like to take this opportunity to say what a fine upstanding generous gentleman you are and I have been delighted to make your acquaintance
Excuse the off topic bit but with regards to the don't smoke , drink or gamble I saw this yesterday.....
Woman: Do you drink beer?
Woman: How many beers a day?
Man: Usually about 3
Woman: How much do you pay per beer?
Man: £5.00 which includes a tip
Woman: And how long have you been drinking?
Man: About 20 years, I suppose
Woman: So a beer costs £5 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at £450. In one year, it would be approximately £5400 ....correct?
Woman: If in 1 year you spend £5400, not accounting for inflation, the past20 years puts your spending at £108,000, correct?
Woman: Do you know that if you didn't drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Man: Do you drink beer?
Man: Where's your Ferrari?
