i'll take it
If I win, I'll spring for RM tee shirts for everyone!
One's chances of winning the lottery are not appreciably
improved by actually buying a ticket.
i can do math so will not be playing, thx
Lottery winnings are tax-free in Quebec.....
The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at figuring odds.
Wat the hell would you do with that much money? I can't even fathom that much money
Yeah - they just take their scrape when you buy it, not when it's won.
Quit my job. Ski alot. Travel alot. Ride alot. Travel and ski. Travel and ride. Maybe become an ex-pat and move to Europe for awhile. See the world.
I'm pretty sure I still couldn't put a dent in it, though.
If you are the winner, the odds are 100% good for you....
If i win this lotto, I am buying everybody on RM with 1000 or more posts a new bicycle of their choice. Mark my words or something ...
Ohh... now that's classy!
I'd build a hollowed out volcano where I would build a giant WMD in an attempt to take over the world.
So you are gonna eat chile and beans then..???
I'd buy a normal house, a couple sportscars, bank about 10 million to live off of the interest, and then pay Russia the rest to take me to the moon so I could be the first to ride my bike there.
id buy a nice chunk of land, build one hellava bike park, and invite all the s over to help me break it in
that 'new bike for a 1000 posts' sounds like a good idea too
You've obvioulsy not put enough thought into this. Tire would explode. Shock seals would let go. Where is your head??
im sure the boys at nasa could make the appropriate adjustments to his sled...just make sure you tell them which units to perform the calculations in though :nuts:
Crap, I better get a' postin'
With that much money, you could afford to burn some bridges. I would tell EVERYONE at work exactly what I think of them. Once I was escorted off the property, I would do whatever I wanted! I would probably start racing a complete race season. One thing is for sure, I would ride one of my bikes every day of my life...
Or, it would be the day I was hit by a bus...
Queue Alanis Morisette music :barf:
Ahhhhhahhahahhaha. I was thinking the same thing, just didn't have the heart to say it out loud. :nuts:
TEAM AMERICA *&%$ YEAY!!!
wow I better start post Ho'ing
You got a ways to go young grasshopper
I promise, If I win this one, I will buy EVERYONE on RM, TWO bikes of their choice
I'd buy a new butt.
Mine has a crack in it. ink:
my office is doing a pool of 35 people, 5 tickets each. also, on the side, im getting a few for myself
Tonite is the nite!!!!
Be sure and let us know how it works out for ya.
where does the money come from anyway? who funds it?
That is where the tax on people with poor math skills comes in.
Yes, yes...! But imagine the thrill of winning $350,000,000 with a $1 investment.
better i suppose than the thrill of throwing a $1 bill into the sewer grate (or equivalent)
I can't believe there are people who don't already know this, but:
The "lotto jackpot" is a number that reflects how many tickets were sold.
For instance, if 100 million lottery tickets were sold at $1.00 each, the jackpot is, for example, $10 million (I'm sure the numbers are different, but you get the idea). So the government pockets $90 million, right? Wrong. They pocket the whole $100 million, and invest it in a "virtual trust fund" which earns interest. Over the course of 20 years, the winner gets the interest, minus taxes, which works out to the $10 million jackpot.
So for the jackpot to get up to $400 million or so, there have literally been BILLIONS of tickets sold. When you buy that "dollar and a dream" crap, your odds are 1 in several billion of winning.
That beings said, SOMEONE has to win. Same reason people go to Vegas. Please know, I don't buy lotto tickets very often, but if I'm at the quick-e-mart buying a six pack, toss a buck in the pot for the hell of it.
I spend on average about $20 a year, most of it on the local mega bucks, not the multi state powerball. Besides, $20 in lotto has gotten me farther than $20 worth of my company stock.
So if I win, I will buy each monkey 3 bikes of MY choice Pacific beach cruisers for EVERYONE!!!
someone better win 2nite (hopefully me) cause im running out of money with the lottery pools at work
OK, how exactly does a lottery pool work?
