      I tried to translate this and gave up. I got the vibe that this was someone trying to purposely write in ghetto slang..I hope. If not, that is just sad.

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

              All i got from it is that "nobody said they were gonna take care of family or charities"... so not only can this person not write... but they can't read either!!!! #poorsoul

                This is one of the times I'm glad I live in the sticks, we don't even have lines here.

                From what someone posted about the frenzy on the Nevada - California border Nevada should really rethink their no lottery policy.

                I'm trying to make sure more than opne person wins, played a ticket today and played the same numbers for the clerk (which will probably go over like a lead balloon here but what the heck). That insuires you have someone rooting for the same numbers.

                Wink

                Lep

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  I bought my 10 QPs today here in the backwoods of Sweetwater, TN. I could definitely use the money. Still unsure of whether to take the cash or annuity if i win? $292,500,000 cash after taxes sounds nice. That means I would have to open up 1,170 different accounts of 250K each, since FDIC only insures up to that amount.  Im afraid if I took the cash and put it in the bank, someone might steal my identity and take every dime.Im leaning more towards annuity. But with possible tax rates rising in the future, annuity doesnt sound good either. I just dont know.

                      The MegaMillions jackpot will be $624 million, and there will be 2 winning tickets.  I will have one of the two, taking $312 million as my share ($155 million after cash option and taxes).  It is so.

                        I spent $2 just now at a different store. I was getting gas for the lawnmower. I am figuring when I win this by myself, I will get at least $300,000,000 in a wire transfer from Middletown, PA!

                        Woo Hoo!

                          I used to teach in the inner city. Let me try and translate this. LOL

                           

                          All of you are crazy for talking about trust funds and saving your money. I don't know what a trust fund is and I have never had any money to save. All of you, including myself, will probably never earn that kind of money in our life time. Well, I might because I plan on becoming the next Frank White. With the jackpot at a half a billion dollars, I can't believe none of you said you would take care of your family or help support a charity. If I win my whole family will have enough money to do whatever they want. After we share the money, I am going to have sex with my mother like it was our honeymoon and then I will marry my sister like a good southern boy should.

                            CDARS is what you will need for the bank thing. It insures your money up to 50 million. Though, I have no idea if you can have more than 1.
