    When the Lotto gets this high, doesn't that basically bring out the groups of people who go out and try to buy every combonation?

        Now that ya mention it, maybe I'll just have Sugarbritches throw another log on the fire and fetch my jug.

        It's cold out.

                its crazy to think that the next new inductee into the top 1% of Americans (well into the top 1%) is living life as usual right now and his/her ticket might be on a random shelf, kitchen counter, refrigerator door...and only a few hours or days away from drastically changing a family's life

                  Very crazy... 1 maybe 2 people are going to be very rich within in a week from today. No way this goes for 3 more draws.

                    Judging from the number of second place winners, it could be a while before anyone wins the jackpot.  Before the price increase, it was common for both MM and PB to have 10 or more second place winners for at least one drawing before the jackpots were won. 

                    When it's won, it going to be a big let down for those folks who think they deserve to win, especially if they think the winners are less deserving than themselves.

                      yes,or right here at the base of the computer moniter,but thats what keeps us playin,no ?

                      just one thing though,i suspect the inductee will pay way more taxes than the 1%ers .

                          Thanks but I'll wait until after the drawing so I will write down the correct numbers.

                            Seems like that would be risky.  What if someone else gets a quick pick with the same numbers and you have to share the JP and end up coming up millions of dollars in the hole?
