It’s that time of year again. You know, the time of year when everyone , even the rich and famous, is purchasing lottery tickets at nearby retailers in hopes of winning the grand prize – a jackpot worth $400 million. Now, let’s not be silly, you’re not winning all of the money. It’s pretty much split in half after taxes and all of the other hands in the cookie jar are out, but you’re still walking away with a nice chunk of cash.
We’ve seen tragedies occur after someone wins big. From major drug addictions to frivolous spending, there are plenty of things that highlight what you shouldn’t do with your money. But that leaves us wondering: what SHOULD you do with it?

There’s nothing Tony Hawk can do to make us hate him at this point. Despite duping all of us with HUVr, the world’s first hoverboard earlier this week, he took the time to apologize to all of the (idiots) who actually though it was real. No, it’s not real, and no there’s not going to [...]
