    anyone for a rare Alfa?

    Nice.  Trying to decide what my stable of cars will be (always wanted one for each day of the week).  Likely a Mercedes S65, Dodge Charger SRT8, Bentley GTC, Infiniti M56 Sport, 911 Turbo S, BMW M6, and an Infiniti QX 56.  This is preliminary and subject to change on a whim, lol.  Now I just need to find an ocean front mansion with a 7 car air conditioned garage.  Yes Nod  Oh yea, lottery GODS, please help me out!!

        Ok I went crazy and bought 4 tickets in DC (with megaplay). No long lines there yet. I really hope since the jackpot is so big, that a lot of people share it....like 10 or more.

        as the nice young man said in the Batman movie:

        "and .... here ...... we ..........go ............"

        I want 1 ticket with 1 winner!  Dance

        allot of people will still get to share in the wealth, just not as winners .......

        my wife will find me shopping somewhere, for something .......

        Tommy Bahama anyone ?! and I won't have to wait until they are on clearance .......... although I did save $108 on the last one!

            Hey I thought you had me blocked Cletu$, if that's the case you shouldn't be seeing any of my posts. Did you decide to "unblock" me

            out of curiosity that my posts would be to good to miss???  Green laugh  LOL   Lovies

             

            Wouldn't hold it against you.  No Nod

            No.The cost was too much to block you here on the board.I do have you blocked from sending me personal messages,though.I read your posts but don't give them to much weight.You're such a prolific poster and have views on so many subjects,I suspect that you don't give them anymore weight than I do.I think you just like to run off at the mouth to make yourself look smart.It isn't working,though.You're still an insufferable moron in my book.

              Mine would be: Ferrari 360 Modena, Ferrari Scuderia, Corevetta ZR1 and my personal favorite, Ford GT.

              For the everyday driver, I'd get a Lexus and Audi.

                    The "big house" will be at the lake. That sea air is not good for the automobile collection.

                    I have an oceanside villa that I have my eye on in Indian River Shores. A relative bargain near the relatives in Florida!

                      Robert Dyrdek - of MTV spent $700 on Megamillions ticket yesterday. A lot of people with bigger bucks than him will be plunking down some hard cash to win 1/2 billion dollars.

                          I have purposely avoided commenting on this all day.  When I checked the results this morning and saw that it had rolled over again and what the new amount was.  I was stunned.  I could not imagine that someone didn't hit it.  I have tried all day to wrap my head around the enormity of the jackpot and yet, I can't.

                          It's at half a BILLION!  And still growing.  That's the kind of number that small countries and some states use to describe their GDP.

                          I don't want to sound greedy here, but I hope I win.  But good luck to all.  (not reallyYellow Eyes )

                          Yes, I was so stunned when I saw it was half a BILLION dollars (!) that I was almost freaking out with excitment! Then I talked to an anti-lottery person whose negativity brought me back down to earth. Unfortunately. They killed my fun.  :-(

                              I am about to do one of the smartest thing or the dumbest thing I ever done. Leaving for Georgia soon to buy tickets. This is a once in a lifetime jackpot which I don't think we will ever see again. So I am willing to take a leap of faith to be apart of the largest jackpot in history. Fingers crossed and good luck everyone.
