    please don't open up that can of worms again. LOL

    If the next winner is from the Virgin Islands and a keen fisherman as well..using " worms" is almost the Holy Grail of fishing lures.

      Two tickets...Does that mean they each bought one?  Or did one of them buy two?  First time players normally buy one ticket,  I am pointing this out because someone else did on another topic covering this. 

      Congrats to Washington state for a first win.

      $2 investment turned into $90 Million dollars.

        if the lottery was an investment then the IRS should tax it like an investment as in capital gains tax.

          The Subaru Forester seems just a little ostentatious to me

            The lottery is a very risky investment with a very high return. I will never say that it is better than traditional investment products. Why buy lottery tickets, if you do not dream of turning a little bit of money into a large sum?

              It is wise not to spend large sums of money whenever someone wins a lottery jackpot. I bet you that they already bought another Powerball ticket for tomorrow drawing.LOL

                See, this is absolute proof that it is way too easy for some to win.

                I bet if she bought tickets for the next three Powerball drawings she'd win three consecutive jackpots.

                Sucks for us players who have played HARD for years, we are due for a win!

                  Lottery gambling fallacy #1 is thinking that playing the lottery everyday increases your chances of winning a lottery jackpot.

                      She's very smart to just buy a Subaru.

                      Idiots that buy Ferraris like David Lee Edwards end up broke.

                        I wonder what the deductible for the unaffordable care act/obamacare is...I also wonder if one goes without I wonder how high the penalty is for people that don't bother with insurance with that kind of money.

                              You mean from the dying middle class to everyone else rich and poor?
