I'd pay off debts for myself and all of my immediate family. Get a new car (mine's 10 years old). Buy all of the camera gear I could ever want. Then either move back to Iowa City or to the PNW. My dream house in Iowa City sold a couple years ago, but I'd still probably move back and then shoot as an independent contractor for the athletic department.

Just had another idea. How much would it cost to buy out and close the U of I?


Probably be able to donate 100 million to the childrens hospital and have them rename it the “Go Cyclones” children hospital and change the front glass where everyone waves to Cyclones with two way mirrors so the kids can still see them waving.

For reference the California Lottery runs the Powerball.

Probably some table of tickets merged improperly and ****** everything up and now every state has to re-upload sales.

Also wonder if they hit some limit no one knew about and it caused the whole table to hang.

Isn't the association that runs powerball based in Iowa, with the drawings held in Florida?

I could be mixing the Mega Millions and Powerball up. I know the drawings used to be in Iowa but I didn’t think the association was there.

Sooo....conspiracy theory time
I mean there probably is an issue like they are saying, but it’s not going to matter. Biggest drawing in history with a lump sum of almost $1 Billion and this just happens to occur? Yeah the way this country works you are going to have people calling it rigged a la McDonalds Monopoly game style.

If there is a sole winner they are going to be looked at to make sure they don’t have any connection to a lottery employee in any way. Same with a group of winners.

Not exactly sure.

My luck I will have a fourth cousin or something that I never knew and I will finally win and they will claim it was rigged.

I just want to go on the record now to say I don't know anybody who does or has worked for the Powerball lottery administrators, you know, just in case I win. Nor do I have any relevant computer skills, huge gambling debts, or have any sort of criminal history that would cast aspersions on my totally legitimate win that is absolutely coming when they finally release the numbers.
