    Of course, if I ever won the lottery; I already have a whole list of things I would like to do but one of my top choices would be to take a long vacation and fly out to visit my top 10 EP friends. That would be quite the trek but it would certainly be a lot of fun! I would get...

    Never

    Despite my pretense at total rationality, I have a primitive core that runs deep in my nature. For example: I had a terrible nightmare years ago.  The devil offered me a huge lottery winning in exchange for an unspeakable price.  In the light of day, my...

    What I'd Do

    Me too. I made promises to spend the winnings in helpful ways. I would take my time claiming the ticket, too. I'd choose my team of advisers and spend time coming up with a plan on how to grow the money in investments. I'm thinking, maybe real estate. That would be neat. I'd...

    Let's Say 5 Million...

    I wouldn't tell ANYONE! I'd first store it all safely in the bank. I would give 500 thousand to my family. 10 thousand to any CLOSE friend who politely asked. (only about 8, including friends on here) I'd take 100-300 thousand and have a house built somewhere northern (cooler...

    The Things I'd Do

    Most people I think would win the lotto and go out with a huge bang, spending countless dollars on absolutely nothing. I can't say that some of my money in the beginning (and end, lol) wouldn't be thrown to crazy endevors. Yet I would like to think my plans would set my family...

    One Big Win, That's All I Ask

    Even if it was just $50000, that woud be enough for surgery and to get started on college or something. A million would make me set, surgery, school, everything I need, and money left over to give away and to invest

    I'd Love To!

    I don't believe that money can buy you happiness but I do think it can help! I'm not a hugely materialistic person but to have enough so that I could buy a little house and be financially secure would be amazing. I'd love to never have to worry about another bill and how I'm...

    Who Doesn't?

         Yes, the odds against winning the Powerball jackpot are currently at 175,223,510 to 1.  However, that two dollar ticket buys a fantasy that all of a person's dreams can come true.  For me, it is to have the ability to buy (or build) a mansion to house an extensive...

    We all want to win the lottery at some point

    or another in our lives. I know money doesn't solve our problems, but I think because of money, we spend most of our lives doing what we don't want to do at all. Nobody wants to work a minimum wage job, take the bus forever, and try to budget your meager earnings down to penny...

    Lottery

    I would like to win the lottery, but probably never will because I don't purchase lottery tickets very often. If I don't have a ticket, I am not candidate to win. That is a simple conclusion. I will try to remember to purchase a ticket this week and the weeks to follow ...
