I played last week and won absolutely nothing.

This week I won! 3 dollars.... But I still won.

The crazy thing is this.... The numbers were 3,18,21,38,50 Mega Ball = 43.

Line 3 of my 5 dollar ticket was as follows... 5,18,22,34,51 Mega Ball = 15.

I almost won $250,000

I actually bought two tickets yesterday. Something about 177 mil makes the "stupid tax" a little more fun

Indeed it does.

Even after taxes, that would be a nice prize.

A co-worker won $1006.00 a coule months ago.

You're not playing the number 106?

...Just think how many EBRs and/or AKs one could buy....1000 @ 650 ea = $650,000.

Not enough to even put a dent in the grand prize winnings.

But what could one do with 1000 ARs? Why, simple....take over some island and declare yourself King!

What are other "fantasies" if you were to win a HUGE lottery, say 100 million up-front?

After getting every gun I ever wanted, And buying a professionally restored Scout for each day of the week. I'd probably get a nice young stripper wife.

Well first off Ar's and beer all around. Then I would buy a nice little island, make a huge underground bunker for the militia, import 3 swedish supermodels per member, and live like a king.

Beer, babes, guns, remote (and autonomous!) island....sounds like a new Discovery Channel TV show!

It sounds like our "live by example" government to me.

In before the "lighten up Mary" thread.



I'd not change my life so much, if I won. I'd expand the store, hire at least 5 employees, give them pay and bennies, as well for myself and family, sell everything at 4% over cost, (just so we wouldn't lose on credit card or debit transactions), then adjust the price 1% up per year until it paid for itself and stayed above water.

Yup, that's why it's called a "fantasy." If money were no object--nothing to worry about, or scramble to have--what would you do? Surely with 100 million you could do more for yourself, your family, maybe even the world at large? Not to knock your ideal (it is a good one imho) but it would only need ~10 million to pull off. Where's the other 90 mill go?

Feed the world's poor starving children? Feed Americas' children? Pay for a needed service (eg, spay and neutering some adults pets, etc)

Knowing my business as well as I do, I can easily spend twice as much as I gross per year, with employees and bennies and my own life, I would hope it lasted long enough to pay for itself and then float for my customers sake.

100 mil equals 50 years by my reckoning. That's including the employees retirement, so if it never sees the ability to hang on without "mama" the original employees don't waste their lives.

After the heart attack and hospital stay......

I would drastically change a few things about my life, my family's life and a few friends lives.

I would start with a larger house for the wife and I. I'd probably buy two new cars and pay off ALL my old bills.

I'd most definitely buy some new guns.

I'd build my own Taekwondo school and start teaching out on my own.

I'd definitely have to donate some to charity. Even though the taxman already got his share.

Then I'd put the remainder in a high yield savings account and live off the interest.

Isn't that the truth!!!

I'd pay bills, pay my Parents and sisters bills, loans, etc.
Force my parents into retirement.
Sponsor my parents traveling lifestyle they always wanted but can't afford. Basically give back to them for all they did for me...
Buy land to build my dream "compound" including guest houses, shooting range, an irish pub, and a single bowling lane.
Take a shit on my bosses desk and let him know that's my resignation.
Travel.
Enjoy Life!

You couldn't spend it all...take a $1000/day hooker x 10 = $10,000/day.....x 365 = $3,650,000/year......x 30 years

Well ok then. You *could* spend it all on hookers.

Or you could get struck by lightning or a meteor - both of which have higher probability of occurrence than winning the jackpot in a state lottery scam.

That's why it's called the "stupid tax." It's a tax on people who are too stupid to understand how "odds" work.

Still, you can't win if you don't play....I generally wait until the winnings is ~50 million+, then I *might* buy one ticket. (It doesn't significantly increase your chances if you buy more than one)

One dollar, the wife and I spend a couple hours having a beer and dreaming of mucho moola....hey it's cheaper than two tickets to the movies. (Which, btw, you might be able to afford if you won the 100 million lottery )
