      What would $120.1M cash look like?

      “……
      And if $120.1 million is just too hard to imagine, here are some fun facts about what $120.1 million looks like.  Measured in one-hundred-dollar bills, $120.1 million:

       Weighs 2,648 pounds. It would take 1.3 one-ton trucks to carry all the cash.
       Would line up, end to end, for 113.7 miles, crossing the US almost .04 times.
       Would stack all the way down to the deepest ocean depth
      .01 times. The Challenger Deep is 7 miles deep; a stack of 120.1 million one-hundred-dollar bills is .09 miles high.
       Would fill up 16.7 boxes of copier paper
      …”


      (Bold numbers are recalculated proportionally (also, $1:$100) from Powerball Press Release dated May 25, 2005

      http://www.powerball.com/content/pressreleases/show_release.asp?release_id=2131)
       

      Good luck to all members!

      Doesn't matter:

      No one is going to see $120 Million in CASH.

      That would be the estimated cash option before taxes.....

      so, after Federal and state( if applicable) taxes , more like $80 million or so...

      I already know how to measure $80 Million :

      It would fit into my bank account(s) very nicely !!    Hurray!

       

      Good Luck,

       DD

      "DD".......you are always one of a few very select group on here, that keeps a smile on my face. Seriously....a BIG Lurkingw/popcorn of course....and right now that smile has turned to Hyper

      lololololol.....ok now....that said.....what did you say your Bank Account Number was ????loololololo

          Razz....and how are you "CPS"???????....I don't feel very inspired right now....even though I too believe that this evening someone will pull all '6 numbers'..

          (btw).....I viewed the complete number series for the last 3 weeks for the PB, and I must tell you I would never have chosen any of those 'series' lolololol...guess what, apparently I have a lot of company because nobody else did either, which is why the JACKPOT IS $$$$$250,000000000

            HAPPY SATURDAY LIBRA!

            I know what you mean being in one of the original 11 here in NC...I have to drive over the border to my favorite lottery stop before hitting my favorite watering hole back on my side where it is also raining, sleeting or whatever.

            I know a place where the lines are tiny and therefore my lotto club's 100 tickets will be easy to purchase. However, like you said, "SOMEONE" will hit tonight I am sure. I just hope it's me :)

            I thought that those series were terrible as well. So bad, in fact, that our club won nothing the past couple of draws, which is unusual.

            And........I am doing well, thank you :) Just testing a new Pick-4 that I've been developing. So far so good :)

              Hi Libra926, 

              My posts are so pitiful.  Typoes, you name it.I Agree!  I actually type 160wpm on a keyboard and I never took a typing or keyboarding class a day in my life.  Learned on my own.  Then the worst part of it all is I was 3 hours away from an English Major in college.  There is a modern thing called spell check which I should use, but don't.  Grammar is horrific and I shudder when I hit 'send'.  Oftentimes, I don't think about the correct word until I have typed it.  The only keys I know are home row---I think that is what typists call it.  When I read your posts, I just laughed and laughed.  You made my day! 

              I haven't been a part of this community very long and I agree, DoubleDown's posts are enlightening.  Of course, he is going to keep our joint account very, very, secret.  So, don't worry, only a select few will share in that win.  It is going to be a win this weekend, I think.  I have spent $24.00!  More than my usual $20 when the jackpot gets big.  That is a sure sign (has been in the past) that the winner(s) will be drawn.  I hope a Katrina survivor wins, too.  That was a mean 'lil cuss of a gal!  She cleaned houses and lives!  Most of my family and friends are starting over from scratch. I don't mind sharing the jackpot with a fellow survivor.

              Whew!  Yes NodWaited 'til the last minute to splurge my contribution this morning.  So, let's wait for the big P-A-R-T-Y Party

                Hyper100 TICKETS......?????......you neeeeeedddd to win....

                Do you prefer "qp".....(quick pick)...???....In MD...."qp" is a joke, and not very funny

                I prefer to make up my own series.....starting w/the #5, or 2 or 6, or 1, or 7, or 4...however I think I must be using very conservative numbers, and I try to invent series beginning w/10 or 20, 24,33, or 19, something unusual because this seems to be a trend sometimes.  Strange numbers....lolololololol

                In the District...."qp" is usually also a joke....most people create their own series....We are not like Indiana, Pennsylvania, Missouri....ect.....I tried "qp" in the past and was very disappointed.....

                  "MY".....no, no, your Postings are not 'pitiful'.......no, not at all, I always understand what you mean and look forward to communicating w/you...I wish I could afford to spend as much as you do on these tickets.....w/gas prices a $2.39-$2.47, and that's just for regular unleaded mind you...

                  I need at least half a Tank of gas...lolololol....you can only spend $10.00 one time....and mostly I end up spening $15.00 to buy gas...... yet I keep thinking that if I tried to play more often, maybe I'd "hit the 'BIG ONE' and then I wouldn't have to budget for gas, food, car insurance....I know we all do,  but the 'cost of living' is different in each State.....I couldn't afford to live in NY.......

                  Your generosity is wonderful....I too have been giving money and clothing donations for the Victims of Katrina, as well as the Homeless here in MD....I'm sorry about your Friends and Family, really I am.....starting over w/little to nothing is very hard, and I wish them the best of everything....from reading the postings on here, I can see, I am in great company because we all need to win 'BIG'.....even if it's only $100,000,...we each have a lifestyle to protect ......lolololol

                    We have a pre-determined set of numbers that we've been playing for years. Now, if the jackpots get higher, then we will add 50 to 100 tickets to the pool and those will all be qp, but the original 100 are numbers we've played regularly since we've began the pool in 1997.

                      Hey cps10,

                      Lost you the other day when we were talking about your "idea" to make millions marketing something to the Powerball people.  So, you are going to win tonight's Powerball drawing, huh?  That wouldn't be fair... you are going to make millions off the Powerball folks with your marketing idea! Dead

                      What part of Carolina do you live?  I used to live in the Fayetteville area back in the 80s.  My Dad was US Army at Ft. Bragg.

                        See Ya!I can appreciate your system..and the 'collective body' you belong to, there's only one thing I don't really understand.....w/the purchase of sooooo many tickets, and playing for the last 8 or 9 years, using your system, why has the 'collective body' never won the ULTIMATE PRIZE????

                        I mean, you guys have made quite an investment, if I may call it that, over a long stretch of time...I've never understood, how some people play once n'awhile, and win BIG....while others play consistently, and are still reaching for that 'gold ring'.......

                          Well, let's see....200 tickets a week x 52 weeks = 10400 tickets/yr

                          We've been playing almost 9 yrs = approx 93600 tickets total give or take a couple thousand.

                          Now, 93600/146 million = 1/15000 I think...LOL

                          Now, we have won $100 many times, and even as much as 1,000 in one draw, but thats about it.

                          Odds are still way ahead of us. But we keep fighting for another day! :)
