ok.  I think Virginia or Washington, DC is way overdue for a PB win. I spent 6 dollars and bought two PB tickets and got the powerplay for the first time.  But I got a free megamillions ticket also.

I bought one QP since everyone was talking about Qps here (although they are always bad for me). Then I did something different and did not study the past numbers to see what was overdue and trending, and instead, let numbers pop into my head.

        I think I remember hearing that DC takes a huge confiscatory chunk out of lottery winnings in taxes.

        You might be a lot better off buying your tickets in Virginia.

          LOL, he's a great business man, ain't he?

          First he says he wishes all Christians would die and then he uses a fraudulent critique of Conservatives as being haters and racists as his signature. That oughta get people from a majority Conservative and Christian nation to send him money! Heh heh heh heh heh.

          What a dope.

          Everthing you post is a lie. Always.

               Well, you were definitely pointing a finger at conservatives. Rest of it, I am not sure at all. Still, honestly I want to stay away from Ridge's wrath. He has a God-given talent to find out what makes others angry and pushes the button. :(

               

               BTW, I live in 'the redneck capital of California'. But it's still cultrually and racially diverse and I respect other people's...stuff. And I work as a stagehand. I meet all kind of people. Even when I was in the military, I met a ton of non-religious servicemen, who proudly served this beautiful, patchwork-like country. Heck, one of my favorite NCO was a Black Buddhist. Most of people in my shop were not overtly religious either. It took me years to find out that most of Christians are just culturally so. As for me, my religion is the one that Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson allegedly believed in. And it's said that Abraham Lincoln has some leaning toward the religion I belong. And I share a similar view on God with Thomas Paine.

               

               I know that this nation was built on mostly theistic principles. But do major population really follow the principles? It's up to debate. Well, let's face it. America is a de facto Christian nation with huge regional religious discrepancies. Atheism has practically no place in America, although more people than they admit practice atheism. Maybe someone can argue that we can kick out all the atheists and make the country a better place. :D Yeah, I believe that America will be a whole lot more interesting country if we do away with atheists. ;)

                Too bad. I was hoping the rapture would have happened on May 21 and then all the stupid religious people would be gone off this earth. The remaining people would be a lot better off. I now hear we have Oct 21 to look forward to. I am keeping my fingers crossed. One can only hope.

                  2 dollars per line means fewer lines sold if people keep their budget at same level.

                  Fewer lines cuts the possibility of a winner being drawn.

                  This jackpot could continue up to the 500 million mark or higher.

                    How does $125,710,000 + after Federal Taxes sound?

                    Sounds like fun to me! Thumbs Up

                    Scary as hell, but I'm up for the challenge! And always up for some fun!  Hippy  I plugged $193,400,000 into the moneychimp tax calculator for 2012, single, and taxes come to $67,666,761 for a net payout $125,733,239. O_O

                    I hit the PB 33 3 times last night... twice on the freebie $3 QP with power play. Altogether, I won $28 on Wednesday's draw, plus I found another ticket I forgot to cash in for $4, so total to cash in is $32. I'm all in... let's win this thing!

                    Regarding the cash value of the jackpots, they are skewed a bit by the difference in the annuity years between MM and PB.

                            OK, so you are saying you did believe the world was going to end on May 21 and then again on Oct 21. To believe that makes you a Christian? So what is your next best guess?

                            I know a way you can make your prediction more accurate. Stick a gun in your mouth.

                            I think when they researched the study, they spent most of their time in your neck of the woods.

                              Ridge's wrath, that tickled me gogidolim, lol.

                              I'm not religious either gogidolim, I just get sick and tired of these idiots running around the country saying the sight of a cross "offends" them and they want it removed immediately. I say screw 'em, if it "offends" you, don't look at it. Let 'em go live where the majority of people aren't Christian if they're so "offended". We're Christians here and you're gonna see a lot of crosses. Get over it.

                              Good luck, gogidolim!
