      Let's see, with lump sum payment and taxes, financial advisor fees, legal fees...maybe a net of about 120 million. Yup. I'll take it! What a happy fantasy.

      I was in the grocery store yesterday when the conversation about this win came up at the customer service counter. I was thinking, "Can't I have just some of it, through osmosis?"  You know, the power of positive thinking. smile

      For sure, lives are going to change and I do hope the changes are all for the best.

    It could buy me some happiness! Yeah, even 10% would make me happy, too.

    I used to daydream about winning silly money, but I never seemed to get any further than distributing it amongst friends and family. There was that much trouble trying to that fairly distributed that even in my dreams I never imagined trying to spend it!

    You can't win if you don't play.  Lol.  I don't play.  To me, it's a volunteer tax and I'd rather volunteer my money on something else other than extra taxes.  :p

      I don't play, and yet, based on just yesterday's e.mail alone, I have apparently won two Irish lotteries and one Swiss one - and that says nothing about my inheritances from kings, wealthy benefactors, and other people waiting for me to claim my zillions.
