    This post is to pretty much for everyone here, except for some; a $10 billion dollars Jackpot...I don't  think so.  Someone would probably won the Jackpot before it even reach that high.  Yeah... sure we all want financial security, but don't you think "You're Getting a Little Greedy Here" a $10 billion Jackpot.

        I would also set/create an association, sort of like the Manhattan Project, but we are not going to create the ATomic Bomb but we are going to simulate, experiment and theorize stuff that could change the world, something that will impact billions of people and it would be made of pure scientists and experts in different fields/industries such as economist, federal reserve personal, mathematicians and a super computer, currency experts and we will attempt to come up with ways to improve the world or make the world better and closer with theories, and everything, thinkers, creative people, and people thinking, stuff up...I get the inspiration from a show called "Overhaulin"on T.V about cars, and how they make them better and put innovative stuff in the cars...But instead of experts talking about cars and making cars more powerfull, we would attempt to make the world better, improve it and attempt to erraticate proverty or extreme poverty and the shackles that have this world  prisoner....

          I would also (perhaps the second thing i would do) create a group or association of the most experts people in lottery (sort of like the manhattan Project), all lotto experts and lottery scientist, statisticians, mathematicians and we will experiment with different combination and permutation game configuration and i will buy a supercomputer to make simulations of each game configuration....We will explore each game weakness, how it will work if we set a particular payout, we will explore each game configuration's number of casualties (the amount of people that must lose in order to create 1 winner), we will explore each game configuration and if is able to withstand strategic combinations attacks, we will also explore the maximun carrying capacity of players of each game configuration...Whether is a pick3, 0-6 or a Pick5, 1-24 + Pick1, 1-6.....And every member of the association/project will be very well paid....All this we will simulate on a supercomputer.....

              I would also pour money into certain games research....I would attemp to do the following: I would also just the same way people can make money off the lottery if they are lucky i am going to make the game "memory card" game pay off money for those who either finish it on time, or finish the game, etc But of course this game would be easier...And it would be for  "Everyone"....I will have game of different card matrices, depending on the level of the game...But this "memory card" would not pay too much, i might make it pay less than 100 dollars or less than 200 dollars....For those that don't know what a memory card game is: "you lay the deck of 52 cards with the numbers facing down, so this way you can't see them...Then you begin to lift 2 cards at a time to see if they match, and if they match you collect them until you have match all 52 cards, of course 2 at a time....Some of you may have played this game before when you were young....I would set it up so that whoever wants to play it has to spend 1 dollar or 50 cents...I would also set up the website where people would be able to play it on the internet, sort of like poker...The ironic  thing is that if this game is offered just like poker, i think it will surpass/overshadow poker, i mean everyone would want to play it....The different versions of the game will have different options, for example, some game versions you would be allow to flip 4  cards instead of 2, and maybe some may need you to flip 6 cards, i don't know...I would first poor money into researching it, studying it, learning its weakness, its payout, etc....And maybe 2 players would be able to play the game, and perhaps just the same way people can play "online poker" on the internet, people would be able to play the "Memory card" game....The good thing about it is that "memory cards" games can be played in groups...I would also poor money into researching to see if we can invent or come up with games similar to memory card, and that will incite mass playing, and that may have mass impact...I would sponsor research to see how a "memory card" game will work.....For this i would have a "Manhattan Project" team/group doing experiments, researching, conducting polls & experiments, etc....

              The problem with lottery games no matter how easy a person may set it is that they are more male-based game while memory card game is more of a unisex game, and is more of a "easy on women" kind of game...What i mean is that the game is equitable for both sexes...

              I thought about this a long time ago, but i don't know how i didn't post it, I am talking like a year ago....

              I was told long ago that that was the name of the game, "memory card" games...But i don't know if is actually called that....If the "memory card" game has mass appeal i think, it could end up replacing the lottery, specially pick3 & pick4 games.... 

              Another game i would sponsor to see if it will work if offered to the public the same way pick3 & pick4 are offered and in the same fashion (1 dollar or 50 cents to participate) would be the "Sudoku", "Spelling-bee (in spanish & English), & CrossWord Puzzles....For this i would have a team "sor of like the manhattan Project" for this....

              "And who knows if successfull I may set up the version of "free lotto" but for this games (memory card games, Soduko, Crossword Puzzles, Spelling bee, and games that can become the Stock Market version of poor/common people), People would be able to play this games for free and if they win they win money thanks to a advertiser who puts ads and a free chance to play the game....

                Pumpi, how would pumping 'billions' into figuring out how to crack games improve society ?

                It would kill society because after you won it and word got out - which it no doubt would - all lotteries would FOLD.

                Why would you not put your money into something worthwhile to help mankind ?

                You want to devise a way to make poor people poorer, why not devise a way to help poor people get healthier ?   (I speak directly of the poor tribes in the third world nations as an example).

                  You said it Guesser.

                  One person with billions of dollars can't change the world.  They might be able to change their town, or even their society.  Sure, you can help out in other countries, but you can't help everyone on the planet. 

                  As of today, the US National Debt is: $8,841,841,992,482.89

                  http://brillig.com/debt_clock/

                  Ten billion is a little drop in the bucket.

                    "One person with billions of dollars can't change the world."

                    It's not the amount of money, it's what you do with it.  If Louis Pasteur, Linus Pauling, or Jonas Salk were around today and couldn't afford college you could send them each to any school you chose for no more than 50 grand per year. The same is true for Marie Curie, and Robert Oppenheimer. Bill Gates changed the world with DOS and Windows, and that's why he has  $10 billion (plus another $40 billion or so). The rifle used to assassinate JFK was bought for $19.95.

                    Changing the world can be easy and it can be cheap. The only question is how much it will change and whether its a good change or a bad change.

                      I would not pour "Billions" into the stuff i said i would do...I don't think they will cost that much, they will cost merely hundreds of millions...I think that all the stuff i said i would do would cost 800 million or 1 billion, i don't think it will cost more than that...The project about currency experts, and debt analyst, and economy analyst, and stock market analyst, would be from the U.S, but the rest of projects might be done in foreign countries to save cost...The supercomputers wouldn't be expensive supercomputers, I may end up buying a replica of the supercomputer the army build (the Mach5) for i think it was 6 millions, except for the supercomputer use for the project mentioned above...And the good thing about the i would set up the easy lotteries so that if a person bets 5 dollars he at least gets 1 dollar back or so it  should be theoretically...Figuring out how to crack lotto games would merely cost i say, 70 million dollars...

                      What really kills society is Las Vegas, and you don't see no one telling them nothing...You don't see the "Billion dollar" BUILDINGS, they erected (the Wynn and the other one they planning to do, that i think it will cost 3 Billion dollars)...This means that 10 million people lost 1K to erect one of those buildings...What the casinos do, i think is worst than the lottery, because at least in the lottery, you see people winning 500K(FL MegaMoney), etc, with the potential to win it every drawing, while in the casino the house claims to take less money than the lottery yet there aren't too many winners like the lottery winning 500K...I say people don't spend the same amount on casinos as they do in the lottery...If there were the same amount of lotteries as there are casinos in las Vegas, i say people would spend less, and there will be more winners winning 500K....

                      And that's my entire wish; to help mankind....I want to create something (a lottery, a game, something) that will work like the Stock Market, that will impact the amount of people that the stock markets impact but for common/poor people, i feel the stock maket is for sophisticated often well off people...

                      thanks for the reminder guesser.... 

                      There was 2 things that i didn't mention because i would forget (i am getting to forgetfull, i am certain is the medication)...One would be that i would set up free ads games (just like free ads lotteries), also games that are not too hard, and that the jackpot would be "college scholarships" but i would consult with the colleges to see which colleges/universities they will attend (i was thinking of 6K a semester) for 5 years).....

                      The next thing i will do if i have 40% of my money left, i would set up set up Gymnasiums that will be exclusively for very overweighted kids/people (don't know how i would do that)....But the Gym would be gigantic, the size of Wall-Mart...I would build 1 in every province in my country, but i don't think i will have enough for the U.S.A...I wouldn't charge much....And the gym will be cluttered with threadmills, ThreadClimbers (for i heard you burn more calories than the threadmills), bycicles, and a room for aerobics, no saunas, place to take showers and locker rooms and there would be no "weights"; in this gym we will be trying to loose weight, not builg muscle (despite that i read that if you lift weights, your body metabolism is in high gear, all day & night)...But i think i will consult with a fitness expert first and a good one too, to see what are the equipments that make your burn calories faster....The membership of the gym would be like 25 dollars a month, to help cover gymn charges....

                      Want i want to do is create sort of speak a "Walt-Disney" with games, and free lottos and not so hard lotteries, with different configurations, but easier than "Walt-Disney".....I will plan to profit 500K a year....I don't want any of the money because i already got money, but those 500K would go for other things, perhaps more research, pay for the gymns maintenace, or to save to build another gymn, a worthy cause, something....If "Walt-Disney" exists why can my corporatiton/association/dream exist too.....I know i will be critized for this but my version of "Walt-Disney", i would not give no money to no thelethon, i want my "Walt-Disney" version to be like the "Stock Market" , you don't see the "Stock Market" donating to telethon, their job is money, how to make people richer, my job will be the same how to impact more people and make them winners (despite that i am in favor of creating a Trillion dollar telethon/lottery and use the interest of that money to be the poorest country in the world GDP...

                      My team will deeply ponder the following question...Do you want out of 1K, 1 winner or you want out of 500, 1 winner, how do you want it set up...

                      I deeply believe that human nature is to be self-fish...

                          If I won the 10 BILL I would do the same thing if I won the Jersey Cash 5 for 50K, payoff the old jalopy, pay other bills, and help those who were there for me when I was poor (within reasonable limits).

                            You need to realize - cigarettes don't kill people, people smoking cigarettes kill SOME people:  IE:

                            Las Vegas - if nobody went there, it would fold. Also, there are lots of things to do in Vegas that do NOT involve gambling... it is becoming quite the family destination, almost like Disneyworld or Hollywood.

                            I also find it ironic you have a thing against Las Vegas, (maybe the gambling ???), yet you want to invent an 'easy' lottery ????????  Is that not the same thing ? You make it easy so you are encouraging it ? (gambling) ??  You encourage someone to win a little money playing an 'easy' lottery, what do they do next ?  They get a big head, they think they are GOOD, and off to a Casino they go, to win some REAL money. 97% come home BROKE.  That's a FACT.

                            You also need to realize there are TONS of other cities and states that have legalized gambling, it's not just Vegas, don't pin it all on them.

                            You also need to realize that, just like smoking - MANY people have never been to Vegas, and quite a few have never been in a casino whatsoever. I've never been to Vegas, and I have no real desire to go there, I can waste just as much money picking 6 numbers out of the blue as I can in Vegas.  Vegas is not the root of all evil.   Sorry.

                            The lottery IS gambling - it is ALL ABOUT making money just like the stock market, and if you don't realize that, then I have to see what planet you are from.  How many tickets do they sell with the pot is 15 mill ?   How many do they sell when it's 390 mill ?   That should clarify it for you.
