Ever wonder the adrenaline of winning the lotto? How it would feels like? I always wonder. I was looking through CA lottery for lucky retailer and I have notice there are a lot of store that sells the jackpot winning ticket for 2 and 3 times. Now that's either luck or God wills.

                          ok, maybe your just joking, but even winning the $220million jackpot wont get you those things... obviously you have no concept or thorough understanding of the value of money, thus it might be better for you to ever win.

                           

                          100-room mansion (although depending on a location) will cost you upwards of $30+million.i live in south florida and 10,000 sq ft house with 7 bedroom on average go for $5million. If you want to build that kind of house in middle of nowhere in kansas, be my guest. you might be able to do that for significantly less.

                          after that, you need to think about how the heck you are going to pay about $200,000 in property tax every year. (yes, get your calculator out and compound that)

                           

                          hmm so you want 100 cars? lets say that you wont even get the lambos or the ferraris ($200k+). lets just put the price of of avg car of your 100-car fleet @ $60k a piece. = $6million

                          planes? did you say that with a "s" at the end? wow you really want to go broke dont you? a boeing 787 (the models that were built in the 1970s) will still run you about $60million to $100million. have you thought about maintenence and the salary you have to pay for the attendants and the two pilots? or lets say you scale down to gulfstreams... you are still talking about $20million to $30million a piece buddy.

                           

                          after winning the powerball, you will recieve about $75million after taxes (guesstimate off the top of my head).

                           

                          do the math. you are already broke. and your planes, cars, and everything else will be reposessed within a year.

                          great thinking man!

                            You really need to work on your reading comprehension. He's simply making  a point about still having  an enormous amount of money, but bitching because you also had to pay a lot in taxes. Most people would be begging for the chance to pay 100k in taxes if they had a lick of sense.

                              Thank you Floyd.  Yeah I would collect and pay the taxes no problemo.   Most other countries that have lotteries don't tax winnings,  I think?  I know Spain doesn't I think Canada does.
