Whats all this record stuff mean anyway. Lotsa money is lotsa money. Thirty Million, fifty million, sixty million, who cares! Every one on the LP would be better off forgetting this record business and cheering for the 20-30 million dollar win. More jackpots, more winners, more winners, the better the chance of one of them being us. Fewer winners, means fewer of us have a chance at the jackpot. Decisions, decisions. Record jackpot, or any jackpot. Decisions, decisions.

I want to win tonight, I don't care if it is a measly Mega Miolion $97M cash. No record, don't give a damn. If I don't win tonight, I want the puny $17M cash in Powerball tomorrow. Hit either, and this record business would a thought that would never enter my mind again!

I can drown a lot of sorrow in either of those little jackpots, or I can keep wanting to be the hero of the land with bragging rights to something that will be broken again. Decisions, decisions. Oh, mommie, what should I set my target at?

Cheers

I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

    cash only:  It would be AWESOME to see Steve West take the annuity, especially since it's the largest single prize in history, and he would get the whole thing.

      todd:

      People who choose annuity do not "get the whole thing" more than if they choose lump sum.
