And why not mention that the Powerball jackpot to be drawn for today is up to $325 million, good for a lump sum payment of almost $200 million, which after taxes will leave you with $120 million or so. Probably enough.
I'm going to buy a ticket, though I think I once read you have about as much chance as finding a pre-marked blade of grass on a football field, or something like that. Lotteries don't make money without millions of chumps, after all.
First expenditure of my expected winnings: A $12 million tithe to a Super PAC for local political issues. Full disclosure, see?
How would you spend it? It's $2 worth of daydreaming anyway.
