I live on the boarder between poverty and 'richville'. Literally, within a block you go from shoeless, bike riding, sign holding folk to BMWs and 2 million dollar homes.. And honestly, I think the poor are happier and nicer people.. And it got me thinking. If I won the lottery, I might become as stuck up as them..
What is your opinion- is winning the lottery a good thing?

I think the fact that you're making assumptions about rich people shows you're no better then those you've seen that may have very well been stuck up. I've seen bad behavior in poor people, but I do not assume that it's their poorness making them bad. It's them period. You see a few rich people and assume are are stuck up? There are people in all income brackets that hold prejudices against people who are not just like them. This is nothing new. S no poor people are not nicer in general because niceness has NOTHING to do with income level.
