Default $1.5 Billion Powerball Lottery - Who's playing?

For kicks and giggles, I bought a ticket this morning. I heard someone say that "the lottery is the tax on the stupid." Well, color me stupid.

I know that a bunch of people have office pools for this sort of thing. Anyone playing?

The time I spend dreaming about what I'd do with that much money is totally worth the money I tossed into the ring.

I would make a FANTASTIC rich person.

I've never bought a lottery ticket. I'd have to ask to make sure I was getting the right thing since it always seemed to me like there's hundreds of lotteries.

My parents might have bought a ticket. I heard them say something about it the other day.

It's a pretty awesome and somewhat overwhelming feeling of knowing that in my pocket is potentially $1.5 billion.

I just bought three tickets. I buy six or eight tickets a year, and honestly I don't check them. I only buy them once in a while for the fun of fantasizing about what I'd do with the money while I drive to work. Two bucks is worth the daydreaming it buys me.

I check them about once a year all at once at the gas station. I figure if I had won, it would be all over the news that they are waiting for the winner in my town to reveal themselves.

I'm broke but I'm gonna buy a couple before the drawing tonight. The one thing I'd do with that kinda money is pay for a private WWE show for my wife's uncle with down syndrome. Guy gets too overwhelmed in big places with larger crowds and the one time he went to an event they wouldn't let him skip line cause he wasn't in a wheelchair and he had to leave before the show even started. I wouldn't care if it cost half the money to make it happen, but no matter he'd get to meet the Rock and John Cena.

With whatever's left I'd produce a DC film or animated series, as well as an original animated series on Cartoon Network. Some of the shit on that station still surprises me that it even got made...

I think like this too; things I would produce if rich. Top of the list is to get the decades-overdue promised sequel to Buckaroo Banzai even if I had to pay Peter Weller a Brad Pit-like salary.

I think Batman Incorporated would make for an interesting animated series, and if we're talking about older stuff I've always wondered why nothing else was ever done with Silverhawks and would probably throw ridiculous amounts of money into that. I'd toss a hundred million towards WB/DC to let me in on making a Batman and the Outsiders film, same goes for a live action Batman Beyond [classic version] either for tv or film.

I wanted to win the lottery so I could post in the "last thing purchased" thread the Oakland Raiders and Oakland A's.
