$85M vs $92M. You've gotta be joking. MM is worth way more than PB.

About 5 million more when you look at the cash value.

When you consider the odds it's even worse.    At the risk of having to listen to someone complain about paying taxes - I note that the pretax expectation (cash) value of MM is 0.49 while that of PB is 0.43.

The "$92M" figure is just poor marketing - Republican MBA type book cooking - inflated by pretending that investments will be worth the paper they're printed on in 25 years.

    LOL- great post prob. Powerball statrts at $20M now, but rolls differently than mega? Whatever, I like mega (being as I live in a mega state) but I wouldn't mind a starting jackpot of $20M Cheers
