You can always invest annuity! And make even more than you would otherwise! I dont think Id spend near what Id make each year! Heck after 1st year i wouldnt spend near the amount given!

I Agree!

Me too, I'd still have money left over from the first year!

      Nodding head vigorously in agreement.  We were having this conversation earlier over dinner with some friends.  And the dh of my friend looked over and seriously said that they would have to take the annuity because that way they would be guaranteed to have income.  I just smiled and nodded.  No sense arguing with someone who has made up their mind.  Ok... they will take the annuity. Personally I would take the cash value (cv).  De gustibus non est disputandum.

      not to good at latin,does that mean argue a sense of taste ?

          "De gustibus non est disputandum" I believe it means no disputing about taste.

            That is correct!

              When I win on Tuesday, I am taking the cash man!  And after I do win, I don't want to hear this OWS crap about paying my fair share!

              On another note, the folks over at Powerball can be none too happy that MM has trumped Powerball in excitement and a record cash value jackpot!  MM I love you man....now show me some love and let me go from ZERO bucks won in this run up to record jackpot multi-millionaire!  I have all of my teeth and I was born and raised in the good land of USA. 

              Show me the money!!!

              Hey OldSchool!

              I got most of my teeth (left a couple or three in saloons) and I was born and breaded in East Tennessee and we ain't never won nothin' up in here leastways as I can tell. C'mon now!

                              Well i got $1QP my husband needed the other two dollars for the car wash. It only takes one line to win right!

                              I would take the cv and use a certain amount to go "crazy" with and then set up a conservative budget to live off of and invest a portion.
