Shane Missler. 20 years old. $450 million of which he'll probably get $200 million

I predict dead or broke within 10 years.

At that age, I would be.

Falsifiable prediction here. Make your notes.

He sez he wan't to do 'good' with it.

Maybe he will buy the Browns and move them to Pyongyang.

There's really no predicting how this will turn out except that his life will be ruined.

Well he already made his first mistake by allowing his identity to be revealed. Can't blame him though, he's only 20. At 20, I probably wouldn't have known any better either. If I won today, I'd try to keep as few people as possible in the loop about it, and definitely not the press.

In California it's a law that all winners of lotteries are made public. Could be the same in Florida.

Port Richey is right by me. I wonder if I could get invited to the party.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Based on his not being surprised at winning because of the power of positive thinking... He may try to do good but probably more the annoying kind of good that isn't really good. He also says he wants to build a financial legacy, and when you add those and his age and apparent lack of any higher education together it is bad decisions waiting to happen.
