Powerball

Lottery. Some numbers to consider.......


1.700 million annuity value

2. 443 million cash value

3. Odds of winning 1 in 292 million


Who's playing? I'll admit, I bought tickets. After all, somebody's gotta win. Why not me?

It’s funny until somebody gets hurt, then it’s hilarious

Can't win if you do not play... And I only have two words to say if it happens "off grid"... So far our they would need a plane to pull in my driveway.

I recall hearing that you are more likely to be hit by lightning 10 times than your odds of winning the lottery. So go for it

When I was still working in NJ a fellow co worker asked me if I wanted to get some Pa lottery tickets as the Pa lottery was around 50 M. I asked him if he bought a NJ lottery ticket which was around 5 M...He stated no, not enough $ in NJ lottery. I just shook my head. At the time he was making around $40.K.This was around 30 years ago and to this day I have never purchased a lottery ticket.


And if I were a betting man, I'd wager I never do.

I dont mind playing either when it gets this high. My wife said she would buy me a boat if I won. I am under no illusion that it would be my money if I win.

I'm playing. If I win, then the St. Judes children hospital fund, the Wounded Warriors and my hunting trip accounts are all going to get BIG donations. Good luck to everyone.


Hey, I drew an elk license earlier this week, why can't I win the powerball now???
