The lottery = tax on stupidity

I said that to a guy I am around for work once a month. He laughed and said, "yea but I wouldn't have that $26 million if I didnt spend the $5 on a ticket."

100,000 suckers every minute, and they all think spending 3 bucks on each lottery ticket makes more sense than buying diapers or food for the kids they can't afford already.

Good thing Santa Clause got re-elected.

Jay Leno said that even he stood in line at the 7-11 to buy a ticket. He confessed that he was kinda embarrassed being in line until he turned around and saw Bill Gates standing in line behind him.

Odds are 1 in 175 million, doesn't make a difference if machine picks or you pick. I just watched a little segment on it on nightline. Odds increase if you buy a lot more tickets, but not by as much as would make that much of difference. Lump sum would be about 320 million (est).

This is not true. Buying more tickets only increase your chances of winning, it doesn't change the odds.

If I won would simply pay off my current house and give away the gargantuan rest to better humanity in every possible way I can think of, including supporting worthy alternative energy development research initiatives.

I would even keep my teaching job and work the remaining 15 yrs I have til I retire.

That's why I will never win.

Re: Powerball selling 100,000 tickets per minute!!!
So they are racking in about $75,600,000 in the course of a day......it would be more, but you can only buy powerball tickets between, 6am and 8pm....that also isn't set in stone, varies from state to state.

If that is the average ticket sales for each of the four days (sun,mon,tue,wed) we arrive at $302,400,000 approximately. That's only four days of ticket sales, and it doesn't take into account people using the powerplay option.

That's almost a half-billion in tickets sales in only four days. I wonder how much the total would be if we calculated the rest of the tickets sales since the last time somebody won?

Don't think for a second that these people actually use the excess money they make for our benifit.... They likely use it against us, either that or as toilet paper.

105,000 x 2bucks = $210,000 x 60min = $12,600,000
x 24hr = $302,300,000 x 7days = $2,11,68,00,000
