Hey silvio I am in TOTAL agreement with you. I'm hesitant to admit I lean far more libertarian than most people though.

By the way, it's still an idiot tax, but the "essentially" part of essentially nothing is why I don't mind throwing a couple bucks at it.

Why do people insist on calling it a tax? You are NOT mandated to pay it or play it.

I guess I am an idiot. Be advised! When I win I do not know at this time what the lump sum payment will be. I do plan on only keeping 50,000,000 for myself and after dealing with family expect to only have 10,000,000 left over to keep. The rest will go to bankrolling this site for forever (as long as Hockeyfan, Silvio, Riggs and myself are the only moderators) and to charity.

I leave it up to my wife to buy them. If she can't do it, I'll go pick one up. It is fun to fantasize about winning.

You have the same odds as the guy who wins. I buy tickets when there is a record high, not because 100 million wouldn't get by, but because I never think about the lottery until it's on the news. But, now I have a ticket and I have the same odds as the guy who will win.

Yeah, same here.

I'm a simpleton...I don't think about taxes, where the money goes, irony of it all, etc. I hear about it on the news and buy some tickets.

I like pie. That, and banana pancakes.


Edited to add: BTW, that is totally not a slant on anyone who IS concerned about the above mentioned things....Silvio brings up some good points...I just don't concern myself with them.

I think statistically I'd also have a better chance of being eaten alive by pigs.
I'll just hold onto my money but good luck to those of you who buy tickets.
