Just call in and tell them you have a case of anal glaucoma.
When they ask just what the hell is anal glaucoma?
You tell them you just can't see your ass coming into work today.

I only did five picks and I got two right on one, and one number right on two of them. I didn't get any correct on the fifth.

A few years ago when the powerball went over 200 million, I bought a ticket and got the first four numbers right! Damn near had a heart attack reading that one.

Does four numbers win anything?

Yea, I only won like $125.00 or something. I think I would have won more, but like four different people had the same winning numbers.

That seems shitty. Still, I guess it's better than not winning $125.

You only split the jackpot, any lesser prize gets the full amount.

Yep...But, this was before Powerball. I don't play the lottery enough to remember correctly, but I believe a few years ago you didn't have a Powerball number- you only had to match 6 numbers. Peeps were winning all the time- mostly corporations. They then added the Powerball number to make it more difficult to win.

Now, if you get four numbers right, I bet it's be tens of thousands- depending upon the amount of winners and the amount of the winnings.

Is that right? I thought I heard the other day you could be a millionaire with getting only five numbers right. It was based on the amount of winnings and the number of winners. Therefore, I would assume the same applies to getting four or three numbers correct.

One winner from Oregon. Imagine that...some lucky person (after the lump-sum payout and taxes) is going to be pocketing around $140-150 million.

Not a bad return on the investment...

Getting 5 numbers right but not the Powerball will only net you a cool $200,000 that is before they take out Fed, State, City(if applicable) and SSI. :thumb:

No doubt a nice return on 1 dollar.

Umm, I think you may be overestimating by about 40-50 million though. 340 million may be the number lottery officials want you to believe that you are getting from them, but what they don't want you to know is that it is 164.4M to them either way, lump sum or annuity. Lump sum payout is 164.4 before taxes, expect atleast 60M to go to the feds and state. With the annuity they just buy the cash value(164.4M) in Govt. bonds and the annuity pays you annually based on a percentage. 2.3% IIRC on the first year up to 3.6-3.8% for the last year.

The downside to both the annuity or the lump sum is, with that type of money is that you will be paying taxes out the behind for the rest of your life. Capital Gains taxes on the profits from the lump sum, and I shouldn't have to tell you how much 100M will bring you in capital gains taxes if you work it right, or maxing out on the earning tax with the annuity.

Either way, over the course of 30yrs you are still going to pay about the same amount in taxes with both the lump sum or the annuity. With the annuity though you are basically defering your tax payments for 30yrs rather than paying it all up front like with the lump sum. Which IMO defering the tax payments for 30yrs is better than paying it all up front in my case.

Of course, it all depends on situation and state laws too. But, if I get into that it might be days before I stop talking about it.

Nope, 4 numbers or 3 numbers + powerball gets you $100.

Now, 4 numbers + the powerball gets you 10K.

I'd be scared as hell to check the 5th number.

Knowing my luck though, I'll never get 4 numbers.

...and a lifetime of thinking "If I had only gotten one more number..."


Some liberal tree-hugger in Oregon is walking off with my $340 million this morning. Dang it. I had plans for that money. Good plans.

There's some deal now where, when the jackpot gets obscenely high, extra money starts flowing into the next prize tier down. For example, anyone who matched five this time gets $853,492 instead of the standard $200,000. (It's mentioned on the home page at www.powerball.com.)

I played the Missouri lottery one time and hit 5 out of 6 #'s and the powerball. What do you think I won?

$616.00 . :shake: I was so pissed. Couldn't even enjoy the money.
