I'm in. I've got the winning ticket this time I think!
What would I do with the money? Well, 1st, I think I'd give 1/2 to the gub'ment out of the goodness of my heart.
Then, maybe buy a new jacket and some comfy socks!
(and 3 story house on 10 acres with an elevator? Why an elevator? Why not - I'm stinkin' rich)

then, you'd send 25% of it to whitak24, just because he's a cool dude ;)

An elevator would be cool, but how about an escalator?
I'd move quick and leave no forwarding address so no 'new' long lost family members would show up with their hands out.

I don't play the lottery (I just can't past the math). But I don't understand why people won't play when it's 10 million, but will play when it's 280 million. I have a coworker who actually thinks it's not "worth his time" to play when it's below 100 million... I tried to explain that the odds were the same... but I don't think he gets it...
Oh well, good luck!
BTW, the Minnesota "Daily 3" numbers the other day were 6-6-6. I'd like to see what kind of people claimed the winnings on that day!

Yah...I spent $30 bucks on Saturday. I only got 2 numbers. Sigh.

Yeah, the lottery is a tax on people that can't do math.
I do play like maybe 5-10x per year. Throw a buck in here and there.
That said I DID hit a 5 outta six once, won $1500, I figger that pays for my tickets going forward. ;)

hehe... if anyone is willing, i'm in for 1 dollah...unless you all got a minimum. :)
and....yeah....you'd send 80k to me just cuz u got too much money, and 80 is just a drop in the bucket to you (but it would free me of my mortgage) :).
