Powerball is $600 Million. If you win, do you still post on Chiefsplanet?

Wondering is you had more money than you spend, would you still post, visit the Planet?

The guy who started Dropbox may be worth $100 million+ and he still visits once a year or so.

Would you?

6. Look at the doughnuts. Break down and get one.
7. Go to the counter.
8. Wait behind the pregnant woman buying cigarettes, the UPS guy buying the day-old hot dog, the housewife in curlers cashing in her $2 scratch lottery winner, and the kid buying a pack of Nerds in pennies.
9. Tell the Kashmiri counter guy that you would like one powerball ticket with no powerplay. (Powerplay is for suckers.) You may be more than one ticket, and you may pick your own numbers using one of the handy forms, but most people just ask for a ticket. The Kashmiri guy understands the implication that you are purchasing "Quick Picks", which are computer-generated random numbers.
10. Pay the Kashmiri man two dollars per ticket purchased.
11. Return to your car, dream about how your life would change if you won.
QT hot dogs are never "day-old" you sonuvabitch.

This person I'm talking about is one of those that is way way way above doing menial labor. He's an arrogant bastard that thinks EVERYTHING is his way or not at all. No discussion. No reasoning. Nose stuck straight up in the air. **** him.

I'll buy two tickets when it gets over 300 million. So I'd say my money wasted on lottery tickets is less than $10 a year. If it was meant to be, its meant to be. No reason to buy $50 worth of tickets because the pot is up to $600 million. I'm sure it improves your odds but not worth it.

It's the poor that buy the majority of the tickets. But a middle class guy or gal buying $20 worth of lottery tickets every 3-4 months aint no big deal. Your on food stamps, welfare....WTF are you thinking?

Yeah, I think of the things I waste money on... Red Bull, Beer, eating out, etc. None them come with a chance of winning a million dollars. It's a small use of my disposable income.

I don't blame people for doing it. Whatever makes you happy. My post is really just a reaction to the "you'd be pretty dumb to not at least try" comment earlier.

Your a stat guy. Whats the worse sounding stat that you have heard that shows how high the odds are that you will actually win the $600 million?

For the stats guys, the expected value of a $2 ticket is up to $1.68 after taxes, and $2.51 before taxes. That means it's almost free to play. If no one wins it this time, we need to group together and buy $175 million worth of tickets and we'll guarantee a profit.

Unless there are multiple winners, which is ... probable? Improbable but still possible? I don't know how to phrase that it's possible that two or more people will get a 1:175,000,000 sequence of numbers, just due to the sheer number of tickets sold..
