Insanity----

The Ohio annuity after-tax payment is $14,330,769 (26 payments)

I'm taking the annuity. Yes Nod

Oh, please! I'm taking the lump sum, which most winners do anyway. Cut the check and let me be on my merry way. I wonder where we're going to go for dinner?

      CollegeLad again....Not too surprised to see the JP increase but nevertheless it's shocking to see a prize amount of 540,000,000 on my QP's I just bought. Im glad I kept all my MM tickets frm web the JP was at 170 million. We've kinda got A part of history to see the first half a billion+ JP. I highly doubt this will roll do to the staggering number of tickets sold. And I also highly doubt it will b just one winner. But Doubts are wrong.

          Even with all the tickets being sold I think its possible for just one ticket to win it

                    Perhaps a new "app" should be invented to understand and translate these "cheezburger Internet memes"?      Crazy

                      Who ever wins this one , if 1 or 2 tickets, is gonna have a fun time remaining anonymous. That IS a problem I woudl be willing to deal with.

                      Like yourself, most of us here would love to have that problem Thumbs Up

                          Or you could buy that $10 million home that Yahoo did a story on a day or two ago.

                          Saw that! I believe the home cost over $46 million to construct and they are having an auction on March 30th and bidding starts at "only" $10.3 millionEek

                            Yep I think if you wait a couple months and have everything in place should be no problem at all
