    I've seen my parents have bad experiences with 4 different lawyers in different matters. I'm not a fan of lawyers either.

    That's a good thing. Its rwd bias which makes the car fun and practical. My car does the same thing. When it needs to transfer power to the back wheels it does. Awd 50/50 is never a good thing.

    Well I succumbed and bought $5 in tickets. I wasn't planning on it but my mom called me and got mad at me when I told her I hadn't bought any haha.

    Didn't get nothing.

    I heard that there is a guaranteed winner tonight due to the amount of players, at least that's why my dad told me. I just told him I knew one thing for sure, I wasn't the winner:frown:

    I saved myself a dollar :)
    I never would have guessed those numbers.
    Computer geeks never win: they pick numbers like 2,4,8,16,32, and wonder why they can't pick 64 next.
    Lol.

    Well the real question is what wouldn't I do with the money? With a jackpot of, last I heard, up to $640 Million I could retire and live off an income of $6.4 Million for the next 100 years! Or $12.8 Million for the next 50 years. Yeah, I know that the final payout is more like $400 Million but hey, I'll never even see that much money anyway, so I'm going big :)

    But aside from eliminating all debts and giving some cash to family to help them, I would buy a house (a modest one, not a mansion). I would buy a Ford Boss Mustang, and a jeep or a truck for camping, plus a family vehicle for taking the kids everywhere. I would get a nice gaming computer as well. Some would go to help kids pay for college and weddings, and some would be invested here and there. And I might even start a company making or selling computer hardware.

    Heck, there's enough money to last into several generations of family. My two over-indulgences that I would certainly partake of would be 1) A vacation house in Tahiti (for the wife, not me), and 2) I would buy a ticket for the proposed Space X trip around the moon (something like $500,000 for that). Then I would die a very happy man :)

    But instead it's really going to end up going to some guy that is going to live it up like a multi-millionaire and blow it all on a solid gold Farrari and a house made of platinum that has diamond encrusted doorknobs. Then he'll mismanage all his finances and end up dirt broke in two years.
