Yea, I have thought about that a lot. But isn't it only a risk if you act in a way that makes it a risk. Or are you going with the idea that so much money would make you make bad decisions...even with the best intentions.
On one hand I like the idea of getting it over time to create a ceiling on the craziness but on the other hand with that lump sum there are so many ways to just let that money sit and make more money from it.
