One ticket hit the numbers. It was sold at a Speedway Gas Station in Des Plains, Illinois (just north of Chicago).

$1.28 billion or $742 million immediate cash.

And $400ish million after taxes. Somehow I don’t think the winner will complain.

We bought one. Wife said if we won she would round up 20 friends and family member and that each put in a dime and split it. Is that even legal?

We lost again.

We're done until one of them gets above $500 million again. Then we do it again.

According to our tax-attorney daughter it is. She lives in AL where the lottery is not legal so she asked me if I'd buy a ticket for her. I told her we'd buy 2 and then split the pot if one of them won. And that I didn't need the $2 from her if it was legal to split it if I paid for both tickets. She told me it was legal for one person to buy the ticket and then designate more than one owner of the ticket. She also said it was much smarter to do that than to take it all and gift half of it to somebody because the winner would first have to pay income taxes and then also pay gift taxes if they gave more that $11.7 million to somebody else. If the receiving person simply split the ticket they'd each have income taxes to pay but no gift taxes.

It's good to have a tax-attorney daughter. Now I just have to win a billion bucks!

If the winner is on this board, I'll happily accept a gift of just $11.6 million. I can make do.

Didn't we all make a verbal agreement somewhen?

What do you mean 'we'...?

LOL!






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
