    Default Mega Millions Lotto Jackpot: $500 MILLION (Drawing on 3/30/2012) (2, 4, 23, 38, 46 MB:23)

    Random facts:

    Most winning tickets are sold at little mom and pop chains, not 7-11's or gas stations.

    Also, recently winners have been more in the range of buying "single dollar tickets" not "$100 worth of tickets"

    You gotta play to win

    I haven't bought a lottery ticket in 20 years at least. I mention that because I haven't lost in the lottery in 20 years...

    Don't ask about blackjack though...

    I have a year long subscription and get a play in every drawing.

    Not a huge investment, but it allows me to dream

    One of the first things I would do would be to buy all of the property that is for sale, from I-70 to US 40 along Mt Comfort road. I'd tear down all of the buildings and re-forest the area.

    You can get a subscription? Is that online, or how does that work? I'd never heard of doing that.

    I've bought one or two tickets in my time, but that's about it. I just felt dumb and desperate, so I haven't yet gone back for more.

    That's halfa billion dollars (before taxes and deadbeat relatives)

    I'd have to endow a chair for Conservative Constitutional Studies at IU Law. $50mil sounds about right for that.

    I cannot speak for Indiana, but if Virginia you pick your numbers, they send you card stating how long your game is good for (I think you can do 3 months, 6 months, or 1 year).

    I don't know of a reason to ever split jacks so either you're more advanced than me.... or you're not....

    It wouldn't be hard to be more advanced than me....

    I finally said screw it and went to buy a ticket through the website a few posts up (which actually takes you to some UK site) and I'm just finishing my registration and as I click to purchase my ticket, it bounces. Says the card declined. My card is just fine, and I'm pretty sure that I enter the information correctly the first time, but I decide to give it a second try. No sooner do I finish doing that, then I receive a website error when I try to go to the next page. I then returned to the front page of the site from which I was going to buy the ticket from, and now there's a message saying that due to the high-volume they're not accepting any more purchases today. Swell.

    Actually did an office pool just for this one time occurrence. Everyone went looking in their cars for whatever change they had on them. Haha. All in all, 6 peeps scraped together $8 in change.

    Nice.
