    well 403 is the 25 annual payments amount
    it's 243 million in one lump sum
    about 150 million after taxes if you get decent financial help
    oh and don't live in a state with it's own income tax

    1 in 914K to win 50K . Probably will continue my non participation , How many tickets will the sell , 500k ? It seems they sell more when it gets higher . If I was going to buy a ticket , I would buy a Hoosier Lotto when the powerball is high . It would make me feel better that nobody is buying those

    What is the jackpot prize for that game? I hate to say it but I will be buying the lottery tomorrow even though I know in my hearts of hearts that I wont win. But if I win, 100k each to all my RPF buddies and 10k to the ones that annoy me

    You mean apart from sharing my new found wealth with my RPF brothers? I am going to buy a big farm land and become a big time farmer. But then again, before someone tells me that I have next to zero chance of winning, believe me I know that. In fact I rarely check my ticket after buying it, that is how little hope I have in winning the big one.

    But yet, I keep paying this voluntary tax and keep dreaming

    Someone once told me that the Lottery is just a voluntary tax for people who don't understand math.

    I would like an orchard of some kind that would be sorta my pet project where I would experiment with growing out of climate fruits and then regular stuff like corn and soy beans. I would also raise cattle if its not too tasking. There is something about working the soil that appeals to me.

    0+1 pays the same as 1+1 - $4 despite 1+1 being 3 times harder to get. Same for 3+1 and 4+0. Is our children learning?

    It's true but "Hope springs eternal" and "You never know when lightening will strike." And .......

    Meh, I bought one. It's a pretty good haul. I'd buy a crap load of acreage. I'd do it in a county in which a rather large influx of people could take over the county government. On the property I would set up a tiny home manufacturing company. I'd offer employees a half-acre and a tiny home and offer those that want to found a liberty community the same. I'd like community gardens and a centralized kitchen/eating facility/canning facility where everyone could break bread if they felt like it. I'd set up some forges and a lumber-mill. A pottery building. A machine shop. A small hospital (I'd entice Kotin to come be all of our personal M.D. by paying any school costs. ) I'd build a store on the side of the road leading into the property so that goods from the artisans and the garden could be sold. Boy, I could go on and on if I had $403 million.

    I buy 2 tickets whenever the jackpot is over 300 million.
    I hit the 0 + powerball on saturday, $4!! YAY, free tickets for Tuesday!
    If I win, I would take the lump sum and put the money into buying land and other physical assets.
