Damn, I thought I was winning it tonight.
Oh well, if not me, then you can go ahead and take it.

Just help me pay off my house and student loans and I'll be good. Thanks.

Sh, I'm giving you and Jode at LEAST 100K. We can negotiate more. Sorry I've gotta take that 800+ million by myself, but I'm a giver. I'm gonna buy the apartment next to yours, Jodie. We'll party.

In all seriousness, I couldn't win all that and not feel the pull to donate. I wish I could get it to help my family most of all and then friends and then whatever. That's the kind of money you can wipe with if the bills are soft enough. I don't have a hookers and coke notion like the one guy who told a reporter what he would buy if he won. I'm pretty sure I would feel magnanimous from being so obscenely fortunate.

There's some bugger out there today who is living their last day as a normal person. It's weird to think. Lucky bastiges is all I gotta say. My fargain luck trends bad more often than not.

I say if you win get the VIP suite at the Lakers game. According to google, you can get up to 132 people in there. Just have everyone pm you and the first 132 gets in. LOL

That's what I plan to do if I win.

No winners. 1.9 B. Takehome is 929 million, haha. Imagine being the schmuck who win wins that (espec if one person wins it alone). That realization probably triggers some bodily function or two. The endorphins would be immense.

What are the taxes and upkeep for the statistical probability of 11 days?

Pop a rod is likely. That would happen even to old gents who need Viagra. It's actually not even a joke, tho it's a joke.

Winner has to go for the lump sum and then have solid financial advisers invest all that dough into safe bonds and such and the interest that's pocket change to you is more than a year's wage for 75 percent of the rest of us. Invest it right off the bat and you could have a lot more than you would've had w/ the annuity. There was one 24 yr old who won 300 mill and he's what I consider the ultimate lucky winner being that age. I'm sure he had a lot of fun. But even he must've been sayin "meh" to 30 yrs.

You can probably count on one hand the number of things you can't do if you win the powerball at $2 billion. Not owning a major sports team, buying a multinational company, etc. If you had that much money you would be investing for the wealth of your inheritors. Because something like $900 million after taxes is a lot of money for one person.

I got 5 quick picks but selected my own Powerball number (10).
That was my Dad's birthday. So I ended up winning 20 bucks on the Powerball # alone. Damn.

Altadena is a real place? Thought it was just the name of the label of the non-store branded milk for rich people. Makes sense now.
