Powerball at $580 Million

Just wondering, did anyone other than me buy a ticket for tonight's drawing?

Re: Powerball at $580 Million

I would have, but I couldn't get out and didn't want to pay an ATM fee to buy lottery tickets anyway. I usually buy a ticket when it gets this high though, so hopefully no one wins.

I went to the corner convenience store and asked the clerk for the winning ticket in tonight's lotto. He swore he sold it to me, the lying bastard.

Re: Powerball at $580 Million

However if no one wins then the cash value of Saturday's drawing should be around half a billion, and I'm definitely winning if that's the case.

Re: Powerball at $580 Million

There is a more than 70% chance that the winning ticket was sold. I hope it was mine.... I'd live it Gangnam style.

Re: Powerball at $580 Million

My Mom said she was getting a ticket and I told her to get me the winning one, but if she did she must have kept the information to herself. I'd have to give away at least half of it. No way I'd trust myself with all of it. The consequences would be dire.

Statistically, if you drive a mile to a store to buy it there's a better chance you due in a car wreck in the mile drive.

What's it called? Stupid tax?

If I didn't know any better, I'd suppose Cam*Ron bought it.
