        I say it's going to be at ~$500 million come Wednesday, which pushes up the lump sum to ~$330 million. 

        I downloaded the Intuit tax calculator app and plugged the numbers in (Got much different numbers from what I had gotten using the straight 39.6 & state deductions).

        Based on the app, after the lottery takes it's 25% and the state takes it's 6%, I'd only have to pay an additional $45m in federal taxes next year (which will be much less after charity deductions)  which would leave me with a minimum of $184,000,000...net. 

        That is an extremely beautiful number.Dance Happy dance!!

          Looks like I might buy a ticket for the next drawing. LOL

          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                I don't think that counts as a simple pleasure.

                            I can see the coffers from Alabama, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah leaving to border states to play the lottery.  Didn't include the other two holdouts for obvious reasons...where could Hawaiian or Alaskan residents drive to?  lol

                            It took us two days to drive from Anchorage( Ft. Richardson) to Seattle we left Friday night and arrived Sunday night on our way to Ft. Stewart Ga.

                              We are all already know whats going to happen. As usual we are going to see and old lady or an old man or some rich folk who already have million of dollar came forward to claim the prize. Whoever dont know this before must be slow or something. I still believing the lottery was design to make the rich get richer and the poor people living at the bottom to get poorer.
