        Exactly. Those who blow all their money on cars are usually talentless and lack any creativity, so they fill their garages up with 30 cars to collect dust with. I can tell one of those types as soon as I see them on the lottery changed my life shows. All I need is one great car which I already have, or maybe 2 so I have an extra one. I also won't be needing all those other stupid things like $200 statues and overpriced stuff that just sits around the house. The rest will fund my house and all my hobbies and talents that provide me with even more money. Anything more than two cars is a waste to me. They all do the same thing. But some also crave attention, and this attention is what leads to their bankruptcy sooner than later.

          Jay Leno is a long-time celebrity who built his collection not an instant jackpot winner. But he could meet that criteria though. He is good at one thing, comedy but many would even disagree with that. Nonetheless all his cars are still nothing more than over-spending for the sake of spending. Try looking a little deeper than just the surface next time if you are able to.

            Do not take the annual payments!!!!!! If the Lotto declares bankruptsy you will no longer recieve payments. We do not know where the economy is going and the lottery could be gone in 5 years!!!!!!

            The lottery declaring bankruptcy? LOL Umm I do not see that EVER happening. Do you have any idea how much revenue the lottery generates overall and for the IRS? The lottery is not going anywhere. It is a HUGE mney making vehicle for too many. As long as jobs sucks and the economy is bad the lottery will always be around. It will be regardless.

              "as long as jobs sucks and the economy is bad...."

              hopefully the economy will improve soon,

              but jobs will always suck.

                Sirbrad,

                It's all about greed.  Philanthropic intentions or not. Every thing on this site. Everyone who's here.

                We ourselves (you, me, everyone who's played) have devalued the grand prize because of severe greed, making it so big with all these tickets in play. I'm guessing there'll be more than one 1st prizer (20 first prizers minimum).

                The odds have been over-lapped several times (176 million to 1).

                Just 6 hours to go now.  $640 million.
                That's a hum-dinger of a prize. 

                I'm wanting to go out and get even more tickets.  But I'm going to go just to see the lines.

                  I already said before I am not greedy by any means, in fact I have said many times that I would love to win the $12 million jackpot after this one so I am completely invisible. I want to do great things with this money, not for just myself. I just think it is really fun and exciting to be part of. But I would be happy with $3 million or more. But I will take $700 milllion just as quick. But I don't want the fame and attention because nothing good can come out of it in the end.
