  1. There sure are a lot of people I’d tell to kiss my ass.
    Kind of like the end scene of Jay and Silent Bob.

  2. I’d build a series of big walls to protect prey from predators.
    And pay all the terrorists livable wages.
    And pay bodyguards for each and every person in the USA so they don’t have to have guns.
    And buy gangsta thugs new pants that fit.

  3. I’d buy 750 million Powerball tickets for the next drawing cause I’d be feeling lucky.

  7. One gubmint gives you $1.5B of other people’s money as a share of their stacked gambling monopoly’s profits, then the big-boss gubmint of the syndicate takes half of that.
    This is what’s known as the rackets.

    Oh, sorry. Y’mean, what would I do with the money?
    Uhm, buy an island, get a white cat, hire some henchmen, and fix a few of the World’s management issues?

  8. Here’s some cold water for you.

    A former friend of ours won a mere few hundred thousand in the California Lottery. They were not able to remain anonymous, and it ruined their lives.

    The first big payout was for the IRS. Then the IRS audited all of their past returns, found relatively minor stuff and slapped them with huge fines and fees. Of course, the lawyers and CPAs wanted their cut.
    People lined up at their door and called at all hours with sob stories and offers of sex and whatever.

    They no longer have any close friends, nor do they trust anyone. We never asked for anything, but they haven’t spoken to us for a couple of years now.

    As I understand it, they did the usual thing: blew all of the money and now have less than they had before they “won”.

  9. “— Buy the NBA and make them play in Uggs.”

    Drywall stilts would be more fun, but massively more expensive since you’d have to raise the ceilings of all the venues.

  14. Philosophical musings: But – somebody won. Not only somebody, but three somebodies.

    Studies show that 70% or so of major lottery winners go broke with in 6 or 7 years. Makes sense to me: most ticket buyers are economically illiterate, and that don’t do much good even when you’ve got trucks full of money. One of our brother bloggers posted a story about two hapless Brits who won $70k, and went broke in a year.

    Other stories are starting to come out about people who took out huge loans to buy boxes of tickets, people who sold their houses, &c &c.
