    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.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
