The good thing is, with the jackpot as high as $212M, there were only five 5+0. Therefore there is likely gonna be one winner and I think we need another huge millionaire.

      Hey everybody. I know that the jackpot is going up and everyone wants to win. Last night as I was sleeping, I dreamed that I won the powerball jackpot, but the truth is I don't even live in a state where Powerball is played. I can still recalled the winning numbers. It was 03-07-12-26-35-51..here it is people

      Thanks for the numbers but can you give us the "powerball" number please?  Hyper

      You have to pick 5 numbers from 1 to 59 and you have to pick 1 number from 1 to 39.

      I always play the first 4 numbers......

        I hope that I am not the only one that has noticed that "huge millionaires" keep people employed.

        Every luxury item that is purchased or used, is either made by or provided by regular people earning a living !

        When one person wins, it can have a big impact on the economy.

        I know that if I won, it would have a big impact on the economy.

        I wouldn't spend it all, but I wouldn't purchase the cheapest car available and move into a double wide home !

        Luxury items can be considered hard assests, and hard assests will always have value.  Our money can be devalued by the government at their will.

        What may seem to be a stupid purchase to one person, could turn out to be a very wise investment.Dance

          Agreed.


          I would focus most of my philanthropy locally (within county), several state/regional causes, and a couple national-level ones.


          I noticed MegaMillions is up there too...I'm hoping it hits $300M...hasn't in a while.

                        it is usually based on the sale of how many tickets are sold.

                            The jackpot has been updated to $250 million.

                            The Jackpot is $250 million Annuity and $124.8 million Cash -

                            That is about $81,120,000 after Federal Taxes in Pennsylvania (No State or Local Tax).

                            That means your tax obligation without any extra deductions would be about $43,680,000 !!!

                            The political party of the GREED OF ENVY does not think that is enough taxes !!!!

                            Sure $81 million is more than most of us could conceive of having, but it belongs to the person or persons that win !!!!

                            I know of some places that I could help with sizeable donations. The money could be concentrated where it would have the maximum impact  !!!!!

                            I am disabled and live on about $17,000 a year plus what my wife makes. I could use alot more money, but the money that the wealthy people have belongs to them. I do not have the right to what is theirs.

                              Ok i know i'm gonna take a hit here...but taxes do have a purpose, they help the impoverished, fund schools and roads, and pay our military salaries.  If we didn't pay taxes at all we would be back to dirt roads.  I'm not sure I would like that so much.

                               

                              I'm with Chelsea Handler...i would just be happy to be in a higher tax bracket :)
