Here in Australia if you win over a certain amount of money in the lottery (and maybe scratchies?) you are required to take a (admittedly short) financial planning course. I think the hope is that you will make some sensible financial decisions with your money instead of blowing it all on hookers and coke.

That’s actually pretty smart. I’m one of those people but if I ever win I’m not going to be one of “those” people who blew their lottery in a year. I’ve thought about it enough to know exactly what I would do with it to ensure money is never an issue again for me.
