You've won a jackpot, paid off the house or bought a new one, new wheels, paid off your bills, given to charity, and want to splurge a little, here you go.

Effectively, with the percentage of muscles engaged with each exercise, the Ultra CrossTrainerdoes in 4 minutes what traditional exercise struggles to do in 30minutes. This is certainly one machine that has to be tested to bebelieved.

A mere $14,615 from QuickGym.com

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    I think I'd be afraid of riding that thing and winding up with the Eloi and the Morlocks.

        LOL I'll have to win a jackpot b4 I can give one to all of em, that's for sure.

        I'm not sure the Morlocks would even be able to handle it though. It'd be like a nagging convention.

            I'd splurge on traveling and clothes.

            I'd hire a chef and have a wonderful wine cellar.

                Liposuction.  It does in 2 hours what traditional exercise and diet struggles to do in a year.  No need to test it to believe it, just look around you.  Someone near you who looks really good has already proven it.

                A mere $20,000 from your local cosmetic surgeon.

                    I'd get a BMW 335is Coupe or an Infiniti G37 Coupe as my first big splurge (paying off student loans would probably be one of the first actions but that's not really a splurge). At least that's my thought as of now, if I win I plan on taking a trip to New York where I can just relax (getting a hotel up in the sky and viewing the city is my idea of relaxation) and decide what to do with the winnings (since I would have a much different mind set AFTER winning than the current 'what if' mind set).

                     

                    Nothing too huge like a $200,000 car or $500,000 house. Just something to help me feel like a jackpot winner and still hang on to the money.

                        I would get an apartment in Tornado Alley and spend my summers (and some spring weekends) there so I can see awesome thunderstorms. I would not want to live there in the winter because it would be too cold. I'm not sure what else I would do with the money. Maybe become a stormchaser / cartoonist?

                        Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                        In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
