$540,000,000

Posted by JayZeeBMT on Thu Mar 29 19:48:17 2012

Mega Millions jackpot in tomorrow's game is a mind-bending 540 million bucks, enough to put you in the 1%. That sum is more money than I could possibly spend in my remaining lifetime. If won by one person, the payout after Uncle Sam's cut would be around $280 million.

I would be terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought, if that lone winner was me. I'd nave to change my address and phone number, and f*cking HIDE from all the people who would suddenly come out of the woodwork.

I wonder if winning that kind of money would be more nightmare than dream...

And no matter how many people buy a ticket, the odds remain exactly the same. Over 173 MILLION to one. :-\

I started a thread about this days ago.

LOL @ 1% You even make Mega Million political.

I am pretty sure that the top 1% in annual salary starts at around $700,000 a year. I know it's under or near $1,000,000 based on stories I've seen on MLB and WWE tax refugees in Florida.

This could reach $600 Million by tomorrow night.

I'm looking at the Mega being 33, 31 or 15

Associated on Knickerbocker has a shot at selling the winner. So does the bodega by Chris R16's house.

No. I don't want to believe that.

I want to believe that certain places like 7-11 Brentwood, Exit 42 Bay Shore, or some dump along the Queens Brooklyn border is destined to win.

If it will make you feel better, I'll go out to the bodega on Elderts and Liberty--right smack on the Queens/BK border--and buy my ticket there. Then, if it wins, you can say you were right.

A dollar or two won't kill me. I might. The lottery IS a tax on those who can't do math, but this jackpot is historic. I might play just to say I did. Maybe I'll win lunch money.

you should pick your own Mega number and quick pick the top 5.

pick a runway number like 13, 22, or 31.

Last night PowerBall was 33 as in Islip runway 33.

I was going to go with 4 or 22, as in the Runway of Death at LGA. Overshoot on approach to 4, you're in Flushing Bay. Overshoot the landing on 22, you're on the Grand Central Parkway.

What Luch is referring to, is that magnetic north has been racing towards Russia at the rate of about 40 miles a year. Some airports have been forced to change their runway numbers as a result.

I'll pass. It is almost physically impossible to win. Since I know I'm not going to win I don't want to give the state any more money than I have to. I have NEVER played the Lotto since its inception. The only ticket I ever had was as a gift & I never even checked the numbers.
That being said I'll continue to play the horses as I've done for over 40 years. You have a much better chance of winning and coincidentally I hit a $943 dime Superfecta for 10 cents earlier today at Aqueduct.

That's true. I don't know about that multi-state whatever, but the other lotto jackpots reset pretty frequently. Lot of people seem to be winning. Along with those rip-off little raffles they do down south.
The lotto is disappointing though, Least the scratch offs have fun....

So many are playing and the jackpot keeps growing and growing due to volume.

By the time of tonight's drawing, people expect it to be $800 million. If no one wins it goes over a billion dollars.
