There is almost no such thing. Via

I bought tickets to the Powerball a couple of months ago when it tipped the 1 billion mark (did anybody else do this?!), spoiler alert: I didn't win -
I took a picture to text it to my parents, you know, so we could share in the spoils  :)
but thinking about what I might have done if I'd won inadvertently made the whole exercise worth my $6. My instructor at the gym was going around in a circle asking us all how we'd quit our jobs if we ended up winning the Powerball, and the responses from people got pretty grandiose ("I'd hire a skywriter to write 'F*ck you' in the sky and then tell my boss to look out the window"). Eep.

When it came to me I realised that I wouldn't quit what I'm doing, the money would just help things happen a lot faster, but my job would remain the same (and I'd probably move out of my sharehouse). I don't take it for granted that this might be the first time in my life that I can honestly say that; I've been lucky to have had some pretty wonderful jobs in my life, but this is the first one that even a billion dollars couldn't take me away from, and I know that's no small thing.
