              I thought red was for hot heads and blue was for cool customers? Anyway, my choice would be gunmetal or white. My first car was red and was a bit too colorful for me. My current truck is a nice white. Or brown, depending on what the weather is like.

                like upgrading to like an 1/8 fraction ownership share  of something like netjet fleet of aircrafts( 650+ aircraft in the north american fleet alone rofl)

                 

                Never ever having to spend hours at airport again and big plus like never dealing with NSA anymore, your car pulls right up to aircraft, pilots put your stuff in,plus they had whatever food you liked waiting inside they got deliver before picking you up.

                Within a min your in the air, plus you have a car with a driver waiting for you at the aircraft doorsteps the sec you get off.

                  That 25% Federal Tax is not the full tax rate.

                  You would owe about 14% more!

                    To be honest?  I cannot comprehend having this much money.  If I were to fly I would maybe charter a flight, still would not own one, seems like a waste of money to pay the maintenance etc.  I do very much like the idea of pulling up to the plane though......guess like you said .... Set your sights higher, lol.  For me, that is winning hahaha.

                          Thanks to you and other media outlets for highlighting the cash value being one of the largest. The casual player often focuses on the annuity value and wouldn't have responded like this if that wasn't clarified.

                              Good now it can be #5 world  cash record if won.

                              161,026,400 after 39.6% full tax rate, insane if only 1 winner/married couple wins it tonight.

                              I give it like coin toss chance of rolling, 50/50 with these sales.

                              Hell it could even beat cash value of #4 record if it rolls.

                              Mega Millions: $347.6 million cash, Dec. 17, 2013 ($648 million annuity) 

                              Yet it's annuity will be hell of lot less then 648m annuity  MM offered in late 2013.....  all thanks to 30 year us govt bond yields being in low 2% range.

                              This is me atm waiting on the jackpot results.

                              No bees, no honey.
