$8000 in 78 years? Is this with the price of the tickets staying $2 the entire time?

 I think so.

     I think so.

    I have a feeling Powerball tickets aren't going to stay $2 the entire 78 years. I'd actually bet the tickets will go up in price to $4 in 15 years. They already got people paying twice what it was last year, so the genie is out of the bottle.

      Holly cow, in those days with $4 there will be jackpots of around 2-3 billion dollars and US dept 623 gazillion of chinese yuan.

        Our grandchildren will be pushing daisies  by then.   Dead   With global nuclear wars on the brink, this world as we know it could well be vanquished.

        Perhaps by then aliens may have bought the rights to our lottery games, and those seeds of greed planted throughout the cosmos.

          I only buy one ticket because of the cost, I'd rather buy two MM tickets, rather than one PB.

            If I win the $305M, I can't help but think about asking out my celebrity crush. You feel me?

            Can you blame me?

                      Do you know anyone who wins 50% of the times they play?  Where did you learn to calculate percentages?

                        Following that superior logic and line of reasoning,   Conehead   it must therefore be possible to win 100% of the time, or lose 100% of the time.

                        I therefore choose to win 100% of the time. Thanks for the steering me in the right direction THRIFTY!
