    Do you REALLY want to miss the PB for a difference of about 1.5 Billion? Do you REALLY want to get that CLOSE on a historic jackpot for such a drastic difference in the pay out?  Do you REALLY want to be a hundred thousandaire instead of a billionaire? Ok...If you win I will take it all and send you a million tax free. LOL


    Honestly, yes, I really would rather have prize #2.
    I'd still be faced with unknown tax dealings and such, just not as much.


    But, when I write a seemingly whacky post like that, try to examine what I wrote in quotations, in small font, at the end of the post (if any) It's sort of like a conversation between my emotions and logic.  I try to be zany. I'd like people to think/howl about that stuff.

      Oh great.   Now I have to text 100 plus people in the next few days in order to provide a Happy Ending for the IRS.

      Make sure you get an agreeable response from those 100 people!  LOL

        I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

          I got the following as "lottery advice" emailed me today from a friend:

          If Wednesday night you find you are holding the winning ticket - (before anyone finds out) - immediately call everyone you know.  Tell them you have an emergency and need to borrow $500.  They will likely all ignore you.  This will come in handy in a few weeks when they find out you won and will do 2 things for you.

          1.  it will make it much harder for them to ask to borrow money from you &
          2.  it will tell you who your real friends are so you can share with those in the 2nd column.

          Hey maximumfun, I got another interesting scenario, You call all your friends and then one of your friends says, "Yeah sure heck if you like I'll give you the $500 since I hit the Powerball tonight!"......(silence as you're in complete disbelief)

            Havent ready any comments about Ellen giving audience free tickets, doubt she will do that again.  Very nice gesture of her however.

                Okay, this sucker is in the game, again, for a second chance.   No need to sweat it anymore--just wait until Wednesday.  Hopefully, I'll remember where I kept the ticket when the results are drawn.

                    Hehe...Honestly, I didn't think of that hiding place.   I just usually leave them somewhere in the family room or in the car.  That is funny.

                        Man, 1.3 billion would pay for a lot of visits with the local Dominatrix's in NH.  Just have to check with the wife on that one first.

                          You've nailed it and got it right on the ball...that is me!  Happens frequently with those p3 and p4 tickets that I purchase in advance, and then forget what I played or where they are residing.

                            To each their own!  That is too kinky a thought, but whatever floats your boat.  Just remember two words, Lamar Odom!  LOL

                              If you think that's kinky I'd probably show up to pick up my check at lotto HQ in full Drag.  Like Hollywood level quality.  I'm sure With that kinda of money I could fly in RuPaul's team to make me over so I'd be in a decent disguise and unrecognisable.

                              at least you'd have something to laugh at when the photo makes the news.
