Do you how much you would pay on taxes? It's not worth it. Than you would have to take those phone calls from your moms cousin's brother's niece's uncle reminding you about that great time y'all had in 1984. You remember that? By the way can I borrow $300,000.00 to Christmas lights on my trailer?

1. Pay off all my debts
2. Help out the people that have helped me a lot by giving them a few million or more
3. Help out my parents and put some money into a savings account for my nephews
4. Buy a car and probably move to another state or country
5. Work on getting into the electrical field even if I don't have to work anymore.
6. Take a nice vacation all throughout europe & scandinavia for a few months then come back to the states and take a nice trip around the us and see the sites

Is it sad that I'm not at all sure what I'd change?

I know I'd give a few mil. to family so they could retire in style.

But I'm happy in my place. I've got what I want. It would be nice having something socked away so I know I won't have to be slinging 4" rigid when I'm 65, but other than that, I don't want for money.

Maybe I'd just start traveling.

It's good that it has gotten up this high.

Lotteries are a voluntary tax you know. Mostly a tax on the poor.

Now we'll have LOTS of poor folks paying over their "fair share" of taxes.

Lets do the math; 1-176,000,000. If you flipped a coin 28 times, and it landed on heads every time, you beat the odds. Hook up 28 keyless sockets with pull chains, let everyone pull the chains at random then turn on the breaker and none light, you have beat the odds.

You must be set for life if half a billion bucks is not worth it. That has to be the silliest comment I have heard in months.

I will be buying at least $20.00 worth of tickets first thing tomorrow.

I would use my money to covert our power grid to DC like it was meant to be. And put Telsa on the dollar bill.

I'd blow it all by paying to show Blazing Saddles (non edited) on network tv all major channels 3 nights in a row repeated. Right now this stupid country needs a review of how stupid both sides are acting after that kid got his ass shot off. Perfect movie to remind them...

It seems to me the stupidity is all one sided in this case.

Funny how they have said nothing about the bounty on his head.

Whats up with that?
