The powerball jackpot has risen once again to insane heights.
Of course, being the dork who’s bad at math that I am, I picked up $20 worth of tickets.
With a grand prize of 365 million dollars, it’s a tempting prize. Of course, if I wanted to forgo the 30 annual annuity payments (which I would), that number gets reduced to a one time $177.3 million cash payout. Seriously, if you can’t double your money in 30 years… you’re an idiot.
How will you know if I win? You won’t. I wont tell anyone, lest everyone and their dog descend on me with their hands held out and horror stories of how their grandmother/wife/son/daughter needs some life saving/deformity removing/totally un-needed cosmetic surgery.
So… as a pre-emptive strike, let me just say this: the money is for my kids, so no…. you may not have any.
Of course, I have to win it first 🙂
