Let's say you won $30,000 off one of those scratchers, what would you spend it on? Would you save it, or spend it on gear? What kind of gear would you buy? Would you have a different view on buying the gear if the $30,000 was saved over a long period of time compared to coming across it by luck? It's just a random thought I had, I didn't win anything. All of my gear $$ has been earned/saved.
