The site boast 171,781 members.  If we all put in $1,701.00 we could buy it out.  Just joking but it would

be easy with that many members to buy all the tickets.

they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

    What do you think this is the bridge of the Star Trek Enterprise?  What are we all going to do "teleport" our

    money to RL, the "lotto butler"?  Beam me up Scotty!!! 

    "I am sorry I can't captain, the dilitium crystals are overheating! The warp core is being

    shattered by the delusional wacky ideas and out of phase brain waves of LP member RL!"

    Besides if you divide 1.4 billion by the amount of members thats only roughly 8000 bucks.

    A lot of trouble for nothing.  I would rather have trouble with tribbles.

    Fascinating but quite impossible.

      Actually no it wouldn't as how would you ever find time to talk to each member and do you realize how long it would take to share 292 million numbers, fill out all the bet slips, and run them through at the store? Also then you would need to check 292 million tickets. Also the one who had the winner you would never hear from again, so what exactly would be the point? Also most on this site would not be able to afford to spend even close to that much and would be pretty stupid to do so. Many on this site are also inactive. So "easy" is definitely not the word. More like close to impossible. The average person spends at most $5-$10 tops, and usually $2-$4. No one is spending $1700 unless they are rich already and even if they are they probably are not spending that much.

            Guys

            I was being sarcastic.  I guess if we had a million members it would be even easier, another sarcasm.  The logistics

            alone would be impossible.  Some are going wild buying tickets, I thought this might ring their bell and bring them

            back down to earth.  Someone will eventually win and I hope it's with a $2.00 QP.

              In the past there have been people who took out another mortgage on their home to buy tickets.

                Funny thing is that no one bought up the cost error, PB tickets are $2.00 so it would cost $3,400.00 per member.

                1.5 billion, 930 million cash, ticket cost equals $584,402,676.00.  I forgot taxes, Hummmm, hope no one else hits. 

                We might not even win our money back.

                  I hope the food banks are prepping for those who are spending their food budgets on tickets.

                  This jackpot may come with a curse, while the winner is living it up, some peoples kids are looking

                  forward to school lunch.  Kids, dinner is ready, were having loosing ticket soup again.

                      I don't see a drop in sales for the regular games, p-3, p-4, cash 5 etc.. so the high ticket sales have to be

                      extra expense.  Those who are rich did not get that way by taking such chances so who are the ones buying

                      all the tickets.  According to reports I have read 40% of people in the US are unemployed or under employed.

                      I planned on buying 2 tickets but may not play at all.

                        I played the same 5 lines as Saturday's draw. My wife played 2 lines, QP. one of hers starts with 31. If it rolls, I will play the same lines again.

                          1-69 pick 5 and 1 bogus ball from another set. I don't like the chances, but my mind would be working to win that jp now, if I was in the USA.

                          With those chances and what I saw in my charts, this may take very long until one or more win. Maybe a big group of players makes a chance.

                            I am not against playing just want to caution people not to play more than they can afford to loose.

                            Based on the odds for the game it would take a very big bet to gain any real advantage and by big,
