    A tax placed on people who are bad at math and probability theory.

    I was forced to buy into a pool at work.  I, by God, am not going to be the only one left in the office.

    I agree with the Travis analysis - therefore rarely buy lotto tickets.

    But this on - I am in.   I mean - half a billion dollars.   Thinking of how big the Boat would be......

    If I win, I plan on buying the Oakland A's; the other $400 million I don't know about.

    The work pool talked me in to it, I'm in for $5.

    They simplified the odds on the local news the other night. It would be like having every man woman and child in Russia write their name on a piece of paper and putting it in a giant tub then reaching in and pulling out Vladimir Putin's name on the first try.

    Surely the A's are worth more than that-what with the Dodgers going for $2B.....

    The one thing all lottery winners have in common...they bought a ticket!

    I'm coming, too.

    I did buy one last night. I don't normally, but like the Beastie Boys said "You gotta be in it to win it"

    Taxes 
    Exactly.  Cash payout estimated to be $389 million.  Take away 40% in taxes right off the top and it leaves you with somewhere around $234 million.  I'd still take it though.

    Gee....that gives you 1 million a year for the next 234 years to play with. Yeah, I'd take that.
