The Powerball Jackpot is up to $245 million dollars tonight. I have my tickets. Am I going to win?

If you do, can I have a dollar?

Blindside,

Well, lets see. After taking a lump sum, that would cut my winnings to approximately $125 million. Then, subtract the inevitable taxes leaving me with, say, $87,500,000.00. If I give you a dollar then that leaves me with just $87,499,999.00. I think I could take the hit. Give me your address.

The double post was a mistake. Blindside, that doesn't mean you get double. Smile

Hey, what's with all theses double posts? Is it perhaps a good luck omen??? I swear I'm not doing this on purpose.

Are you going to win... Hmmm...

[Donning gypsy scarf and lighting candle...]

I see a dark cloud over your ticket ... there is an evil influence ... wrap the ticket in this handkerchief, and do not open it for 7 days, or it will turn into worthless shredded newspaper ... and give me $700 to perform the ritual of the seven candles ... wait, make that $1400 ... and after a week you can open the handkerchief with the curse lifted. But not until then!

There, satisfied?

Thanks guys, but no luck (for me or anybody else it turns out). Oh well, now to get my tickets for the next ($300 million) drawing.
