Let me explain here.
With that lottery money, I can do anything I want. I can pay back my student loans and go to grad school easily (and then get the job I WANT!) and pay for my sisters schooling too, etc, and help my family be secure, and invest for a comfortable life and give money away and do a lot more good with the extra money.
Besides, when I do a job well, I'd MUCH rather get paid in the heartfelt appreciation of those around me. I would be horribly dissatisfied if I got only money and no person recognition. Money's impersonal, the lottery's impersonal. My work is personal, let the payment be personal.
