    I threw down $20. If I win we're getting all the top recruits in the country.

    well if I'd bought a ticket I'd be more excited, haha. If someone wins from somewhere I could have conceivably bought the ticket from though, I will be ******!

    I could do a lot with 600 million. Haha!

    I chose a lottery ticket over a glass bottle Pepsi last time the jackpot was massive. I still have buyer's remorse. Will not make the same mistake ever again.

    Re: The 600 MILLION Powerball Thread

    I figured why not. $10 for a little daydreaming about what I'd do with all that money seemed like a fair trade. That's actually less than what I spent on a small soda and popcorn when I went to the movies last week...

    Re: The 600 MILLION Powerball Thread

    I literally have never won any sort of gambling. Any time I am at any casino (which isn't often), I put a $20 in the slots and I am out the $20 in about 2 minutes. No lie. I never even get a number right on my lottery tickets (which I only play when over $100 million and I think about it....if I am going to win I am going to win big). Anyway, I bought on Wednesday and went in today to get my ticket for tonight and I won $4 on Wednesday's ticket. I guess that means I am not going to win today.

    Re: The 600 MILLION Powerball Thread

    Honestly, if I didn't have a heart attack upon realizing that I'd won, I'd never know what to do with all that money without just giving it away. I've done the math before. I could set my parents, my sister and myself for life (in addition to future kids), donate a ton to my high school, the Daily Iowan, and UIHC (specifically leukemia and dementia/Alzheimers research), and I'd still have a couple hundred million left over when all was said and done.

    Re: The 600 MILLION Powerball Thread

    I have a nice list of places I would put money:
    1. House
    2. Probably some adoptions along the way
    3. A school in Jamaica
    4. Teach for free.
    5. A whole bunch of good causes and places to donate.
    6. Obviously, income and retirement would be simple to put together.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Exactly. And I'd still like it.

    There probably would be seat upgrades. Possibly a CF suite.

    Or we'd hook you up. Our daughters would grow up together at the games. Dogs and cats would get along. It would be a strange time.
