    I remember when members of this forum didnt think we'd ever cross the $400,000,000 mark.  Ill gladly pick up the winners Jackpot Wednesday.  My home will be this one in Maryland.

    13105 Isle Of Mann Way, Highland, MD 20777

    Good luck paying all of those Maryland taxes on that house! The extra taxes on the square footage of the roof and driveway will be too much LOL.

        So what does he say about the shark? Same kind of odds of getting attacked by a shark than winning the lottery? Shark attacks are probably less prevalent than lightning strikes. Lions and Tigers, and Bears Oh my!

          Not new to the site, but new to the forums. Just wanted to say hello to everyone and I wish you all the best this Wednesday.

          Now having said that, Pennsylvania hasn't had a winner of a jackpot of this size, so I reckon I'll be the first.

            I've actually started only playing the CA Super Lotto Plus. I'm confident enough in my business savvy and ideas that I could turn 5 million into hundreds of millions, the SLP is 20m right now, though. It just came to me the other week, the only reason to play the MM and PB over SLP is if you couldn't turn a few millions into a lot more. Billion dollar businesses have been started for a lot less.

            If I ever won just the 8 million SLP, I'd just set a few million off to the side in case things didn't go right and then start a business. I bet in 3-4 years time that business would be generating more revenue a year than you'd get for the annual annuity on this jackpot.

            The SLP also has that 2nd chance thing where they pick 5 winners every week to win 15k each, there is also a 600k drawing coming up. Even with the 15k, I could take that and be generating 5 times that a year just off the internet.

            If you can turn $5 million into hundreds of million why even wait to win the lottery?

            There are countless numbers of investment bankers and venture capitalist who would be dying to see your business proposal. If your ideas are that strong, I doubt you would even have to invest any of your own funds.

            You also mentioned turning 15k into a 5-fold gain within a year. With that kind of return, you most likely have plenty of people near you who would front the entire amount for a portion of the profits.

                          A cooked and seasoned rattlesnake is the only kind I like.

                          It seems only states out west like Colorado serve them.

                          Just like alligators, they taste like chicken.

                            Who said I'm waiting to win the lottery? It's all hard work right now, the lotto is just taking the proverbial shortcut. Doubt you could get millions in funding off an idea unless you're a proven commodity, you need something built first, and that's what I'm working on now. Not sitting around waiting to win the lotto lol. And whenever I do build something like that, it will be on my own dime. No one will be having their hands in my company's cookie jar but me and uncle sam.
