    then cut that cash in half or so for taxes.

    Have a great disdain for the lottery, truly believe it is one of the biggest rackets in this country and that it goes against everything we are supposed to be about here in America. With that said, hell yeah I bought a ticket.

    That is after taxes from what I read.

    I think I misinterpreted it.

    I bought six tickets on my own. They want to do an office pool here, I hate my co-workers, but I would hate them even more if they won without me.

    Still don't understand the thinking of only buying a ticket when the jackpot goes huge. Like a $10 million win isn't worth entering for.

    Utah is one of four states that don't have the lottery (five if you count Nevada, which of course has good-old-fashioned legalized gaming). The local news last night had coverage of all the Utahans queued up in long lines out the front door of the first convenience store over the Idaho border. That type of psychology is funny to me: I will drive an hour or more to buy lotto tickets for a jackpot that is half a billion dollars, but for approximately the same odds, I wouldn't make the same trip in order to purchase lotto tickets for a "mere" $20 million jackpot.

    I don't normally buy tickets but I was in Circle K and the old lady working there was completely frazzled, I asked her what was wrong and she told me she was completely over this lotto shit. OHHHH that reminds me, can I get 4 tickets? I think she wanted to murder me at that point. When I win I will find that old lady and give her a fat tip!

    I heard Tom would buy Goldenvoice if he wins and throw Tom Waits-curated festivals year round.

    Looking for a strategy?

    Of course, another strategy would simply be to buy up every single ticket combination. That would cost $176 million. But you’d be guaranteed to win about $293 million after taxes. Good deal, right? But there’s one big hitch: “First, if it takes five seconds to fill out each card, you’d need almost 28 years just to mark the bubbles on the game tickets. You’d also use up the national supply of special lottery paper and lottery-machine printing ink well before all your tickets could be printed out.” (Also, if just one other person picked the winning number, you’d end up losing $30 million all told.)

    Poppycock. Too much of a good thing. I would have a rotating board of curators.

    I wonder really, how many people under the age of 35 really win the lotto. I see nothing but elderly winning this shit, or is it because they buy them by the 20's?

    anywayz, i may just buy a single ticket. Lady luck be with me!

    Oh, I got my ticket, all right. Since you can play in advance, I buy one play a week for a month. I figure someone is going to win that money, and if I don't have a ticket then it definitely won't be me. Shoot, I don't even need all of the money. I'd be cool with a million.
