    $476 mil.... that's an annuity of $12 million AFTER taxes (going by USA Mega's jackpot analysis page)... yeah, you know it's out of control when even ONE YEAR'S PAYMENT is more money than I could ever imagine spending in a lifetime... but it's the kind of "out of control" that each and every one of us dreams of...

    Now we just have to get through the rest of the week...

              A new thread will be needed very soon....what will heavy sales do to the current jackpot? Crazy. Just crazy.

              Is there anyone out there intending to buy just one ticket for the next draw?

              On my states lottery website, it has the 3 little words: Please Play Responsibly....right under the big, bold, blue numbers: $476,000,000

              That's a joke, kind of like McDonald's and Hot Coffee.

              People will definitely lose their minds in the next couple days.

                Yes, COw Pi3, probably!  I noticed 5 tickets in Illinois alone (two tickets purchased by same person)!!!

                          You should also get a Twitter account. That would be nice and convenient. 

                          This site is going to crash, lol, they all are.

                              THAT'S WHAT I'M TAKING ABOUT!!!!

                              When I hear people talking about investments my eyes kind of glaze over because I'm thinking aren't

                              investments to make money? But I just won (if you win the jackpot) hundreds of millions!!! What do I

                              need to invest for? Am I being naive? Shoot I'd take the annuity too!! This stuff about the government

                              and high taxes blah blah blah, I'm like SO WHAT!!! Even if the taxes are high that's still a BIG check of

                              money you didn't even work for/earn, a BIG check you would have never have gotten if you didn't win the

                              lotto, you know what I mean? Lottery jackpot winners and financial advisors?

                              I guess it's the thing to do because you see it all the time. I'm with you sirbrad, that first check would

                              have me set for life indluding money I'd give to others, after that as you put the rest "collecting dust" lol

                              Exactly. Even after taxes you will still have more money than most everyone else.
