Move to the sticks, build a compound, and live anonymously.

Marcia bought a couple tickets today. The news said last night that you have better odds of getting killed by a falling coconut than 1 person winning. Be careful where you walk, Gregg.


That's why I only bought 1, The guy at the 7-11 I bought it at said they had people buying $500 worth at times?! Told him I couldn't afford to waste that kind of money, I've got a car payment now :P

Well, I never even matched one number...so much for that. Some millionaire will probably win. Maybe they will start a model kit manufacturer. :P

No win here, either.

Based on the last reported amount ($580 million,) if nobody wins tonight, I'm guessing it'll hit $800 million.

Now THAT is worth a ticket or two!

If that's the case Charlie, I just may have to ante up for two tickets next time!

First off, I'd take care of any finances that myself or my family could ever need.
I'd give out close to 50 million to my family. A cool mil each.
Then I would buy, and or build all my toys.
Open a few hobby shops, and donate to a worthy cause.
Invest, and last but not least have fun, and enjoy life to the fullest.

About 10 years ago a young man that lives around here won 100 Grand on daily four. He quit his job , paid off his Dads house and bought a brand new Nissan pick up-In the last 10 years he has spent well over that 100 Grand trying to win again-but it's the same group of people that think that my model collection is a waste of time and money ? (suckers )

I'd finish my truck, but first I gotta have somewhere to finish it! Therefore, I'd build a HUGE shop full of all the tools one could ever need. B)

Which is why spending more than $5 or $10 is not worth it to me. It is a lot like trading stuff here on the forum, if you can't afford to live without it, then don't do it!

Your brother would have done a whole lot better spending that money helping someone in true need than to waste it on tickets.

It was my brother-in-law and I agree 100%!

When he still lived at home he would sometimes spend his whole paycheck on the LOTTO if the jackpot was high.
