I have never purchased a lottery ticket for myself and don't intend to start now.
you could buy a couple hundred for me..............
If any of you guys win just remember your GB brothers.
Your chances are about 1 in 743,000,000,000. buy a couple of tickets and they go down. Lotteries are a tax on the mathmaticaly challenged. but best of luck...
^^^^^^That's better odds than walking through downtown Chicago on a Saturday night and not getting mugged! 😛
I just read that
Will donate another 10 or 20.00 to The state/ government lol
and If I win than it will be many millions to the big brother POS collection team it all should be tax free . but that will never happen
I have lived 65 yrs on the bottom of the totem pole , 😥 it would be nice to go out on the top section with a hundred million 😁
to win would be great It would be a true burden to win , we all know that ,
however it would be interesting to discover all my lost family I have never heard of 😲 but I would suffer thru it
It would probably cost me ALL of my winnings to pay for all the medical care I would need after the sudden heart attack I would have after reading the numbers on my lottery ticket!😲
I would buy GunBroker💪
My wife said I couldn't spend it all, ever but I could, with gunbrokers help, put a heck of a dent in it!
I know hedog is a smart fellow but he has the odds all wrong, the odds are 50-50, you either win or you lose..........
497 MILLION AFTER TAXES, geez, the government could blow a half a billion in a minute.
They'll just come back for more at the end of the year.....guaranteed 😠

I have always been told that money cannot buy happiness . Maybe so but it sure can rent some !
It can make misery a lot more tolerable.
It still chaps my behind that the STUPID people wanted more numbers to lessen your chance of winning but make the pot bigger. It would be better to get 20-50 winners of the billion buck pot splitting it up so more benefit. If you can't live on the after tax net winnings you might want to shut off Nexflix to save a few bucks.
Spend most of it on guns and ammo, then blow the rest of it.
Most likely would start out with a car dealership and let folks run it.
Talking about taxes. You pay a bit more than half when you win. You give some away to your loved ones and they have to pay tax on what they receive. The government sure is a racket!!

I'm in for a $2 quick pick.

My father was vault administrator for Kansas lottery for several years after he retired from KHP. They do a five or ten year follow up on big pot winners and you would not Believe the percentage of people who don't have the sence God gave a box of rocks. They learn the hard way pissin' money away won't pay the taxes on that fancy house, bass boat and Ferrari they just had to have.
Yep, my wife's BIL sold cars for a while. He said lottery winners were the worst credit risks there was.
It sounds like he was late to the selling game, he should've caught them when they had big money in their pockets and didn't need any credit.
No winner last night.
Lots and lots of losers though!
You cannot win if you don't play. You don't have to get all the numbers to win a smaller amount. Co worker and I played the lottery in the machine shop. We pooled money and hit 5 numbers . Now the kicker we took some of our winnings and played the next week. We hit five numbers again !!! Did not play the third week. I will be in again for another 100 this week. On a side note was up a ton playing blackjack... was playing 100 hands. Wife thought I was nuts. Walked away from the table a big winner. Luck is luck.. gambling is fun just know when to quit.
Read that odds are 1 in 292 million to be a winner, so I have a chance.
I just tossed another three bucks into the pot for a ticket, what the heck, with inflation three bucks is actually worth about two bits.
And not much better if you buy a ticket.
Think I'll buy a ticket with my first SSI raise
well 8 dollars back out of 20.00 spent may take a few years and using creepy joe's government math to break even 😲
oh well add a few more hundred million and I will still be one glad old fellow even if spilt with 10 other winners
1.2b as of tonight.
Plenty of Winners just not the big pot... Will be up to around 1.5 billion Sat.
Wow! If I played (I don't) and won, I would buy Colt, Remington and Winchester and make 'em like they used to. But I wouldn't sell any guns; they would all be for ME!
I might actually buy a ticket now.
Getting tickets tonight
Bought of $'s worth for myself.
Our Maint dept pooled $3 each in for some tickets.
I want it all to myself but, it would be sort of neat if our Dept wins and we all walk. 😀
I was doing some deep cleaning down in the basement this morning and came upon a pretty good handful of quarters from under the couch and chair cushions. Seeing that I had to make a postal run, I hit the party store across the road and bought 3 power ball tickets with all of those quarters! I was 3 quarters short and had to dig them from the cars built in coin bin with dog hair attached! 😁
I figure a better chance of winning must come from very humble beginnings!
