    The funny thing is that half the people I know saying that buying a lottery ticket is pointless are the same ones who thought they'd have a perfect March Madness bracket, not realizing that winning the lottery is 13 billion times easier.

    I'll quit work thats for sure. Probably buy a flip phone cause I wouldn't be using my phone for anything else if I had 300 million lol

    Buy a few nice cars. Ranging from Audi to Porsche. Nice mansion. And then invest the rest.

    What else is there to do with that much $$$

    Travel lots too!

    The winning ticket was sold in Michigan! To me!!

    I'd pay off my school debt and probably all my classmates school debt too. I'd quit my ****ty job and live off my winnings till I finished school and got my dream job.
    I'd also buy a house. Not a mansion but a nice sized home.
    Then I would build a facility for the local sexual assault center I volunteer at because as of now our local hospital is a bunch of asses and will not see sexual assault victims. They automatically send them to green bay, an hour and a half away, if they want any evidence taken.

    Bought my $20 tickets yesterday. FWIW its up to $640 million. Tickets are selling at a rate of 1.3 million per hour.

    What would i do? Buy a EXTREMELY nice home. EXTREMELY nice vehicles. Set up my entire immediate family for life. Make tons of investments. Hire a financial advisor and lawyer to handle everything. And of course have the best phones all the time and MAKE SURE I am in live in a 4G area:biggrin:!! Thats what i hope would happen.

    Realistically though, I would die quickly from to much liquor and women. (just kidding....i think....LOL)

    Haha u could say that yea. I just think they're all sleazy blood suckers, I mean they'll side with anybody who's willing to pay their absurd hourly rate, even if its a cold blooded killer who deserves to stand alone for the rest of his or her life, in front of a firing squad. I don't necessarily blame them, they're just playing the game how it goes, its more of a judicial problem with courts/probation/everything involved. They all deserve to burn in hell, and I'm sure they will. They know what truly is right and wrong, and it clearly doesn't bother any of them when they repeatedly choose wrong.

    This is the main reason I'm not a fan of our justice system. It's not about eliciting the truth. It's about who can argue the best.

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about a lawyer who deals with things like estate planning, etc., rather than a defense attorney or prosecutor. :)
