I have never won a lottery before but so i might not understand the rationale behind driving a 100,000 Pounds Bentley Continental GT into flash floods (because floods don’t just occur within seconds) as lottery winner, Robert Johnson, 65 did recently.

Mirror.co.uk reported that the mega-rich Robert Johnson, 65, shrugged off the loss – and splashed out on a new Mercedes.
The management consultant, who scooped £5million in 2008, ploughed into 3ft of water as he drove to a business meeting.
He rang the AA but a patrol was unable to rescue the stranded vehicle and it was left to the mercy of floods on the outskirts of Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
From his modest cottage, Robert said: “I don’t know what all the fuss is about, it’s just a flooded Bentley. I’ve gone out and got a new car. Job done”.
Oh my! Poor Bentley. Don’t worry, you will find a better lover soon.
