So just to keep things clear...
If, by any chance, one of us wins the Powerball jackpot today, we'd share the wins, right?
I don't think that's even possible
How the fuck is it rigged if you have every possible combination ? It doesn't matter what numbers they extract, you literally have every possible outcome.
>Roughly $500,000,000 after taxes, cash option.
>conservative investments with principle reinvestment to offset inflation
>2million a month in perpetuity
What would you do with it? Would you use it to help people? Travel? I would use it to contain or cure diseases.
Of course. My Robot foundation idea is still waiting for the capital. The super cool campuses will include fiber nets, anime-themed schools of vocational training, and abundant, super easy bathing facilities so everyone smells nice.
Too bad I didn't go outside to gamble.
Fuck you're stupid. The winning tickets don't go into circulation. There are none. They hire people to act as though they won, make it all big and official, then give them a very, very small fraction of the what the winnings would be.
You uningelligent fuck.
Build small house in the woods
Set aside enough to live on until I die
Spend the rest on animal shelters and land for wildlife sanctuaries.
>Would you use it to help people?
I have a bit of extra money.
Buying 10 tickets
If I win, ill give half of it to r9k, and pay a well-kept escort $1000 a day to dress up like Sakura Matou, let me cook for her, and cuddle for the rest of the day twice a week for the rest of my life.
After seeing your posts, I wouldn't give you a two domes to rub together let alone a few hundred grad for your faggot ass dream.
Can you just an hero and do us all a favor all ready
If I win I'll be giving away 10 grand to 50 robots. Also my and an old friend made a deal if one of us won the lottery we have to got to Japan and spend a million dollars so that would be fun.
>tfw i if i win i'll give some money to my friends on the low
>tfw put the rest in stocks
>buy my dream car
>buy my own house
>quit work and continue going to school, and go to uni
what will you guys do if you win?
>Would you use it to help people?
I'd give everyone in my immediate family $1 million each to get them ass. Everyone else can go fuck themselves.
I probably drop out of school, use it for a downpayment of a house or upscale apartment, and buy a nice car. I wanna win just so I can tell gold diggers to go fuck themselves.
>open an account in a federal bank
>hire best finance lawyer I can find
>open up a trust fund, that way I can claim my winnings anonymously
>continue working my steady job while I look for property/land in Maine
>as soon as I get the property/land, quit my job and buy a nice truck and a trailer
>drive up to Maine, take my sweet ass time
>live on my land and oversee the construction of my estate
>enjoy life, maybe buy another plot of land and open up a dairy farm
basically an old passenger rail car, with most of the seats and stuff taken out and a bar/tables/a kitchen/etc put in. ideally situated near a rail station, actually found a great plot of land already
You could literally do this on one month's pay. Think bigger.
With this money you could literally buy an apartment / condo in every major city in the world every month until you die and never touch the principle. Think bigger, anon!
>You could literally do this on one month's pay.
You could set aside enough money to live on until you die on one month's pay? Exactly how much do you think normal people make a month, anon?
>would probably give about $50k to random people on /r9k/ because I love you guys
>buy a small house on a lake with a dock and a pontoon and speed boat
>live out the rest of my days chilling on the lake fishing and relaxing
>would eventually give a decent chunk of money to my brother but I think he's lazy so I would make him wait until he has had a steady job and won't let the money ruin his life
>buy my parents the nicest vacation they could ever ask for
I'm a simple man.
>hurr don't spend it all at once
That would all be covered in like the first few pay checks with the prize being this much
One month's pay if you win the powerball is two million dollars.
That's what this thread is about :)
>Set aside enough to live on until I die
No matter how young or old you are, there is no reason why anyone couldn't live off of half a billion dollars. You don't have to set any aside as long as you aren't a complete retard with money management.
This is the truth sadly. When it gets this big I don't trust it. The 70 million dollar one with the mcdonalds welfare nigger was real thiugh. Where she bailed her boyfriend out of jail for 10million.
All the proof you need is the literal jew who was the Florida lottery 7 times. Bragging about his friend winning 9 million dollars also. Shit is all rigged I'm to lazy to type all this shit out on my phone
The reality is that it's not a complete fucking scam like some anons are saying. But it is true that you receive less than half of the stated jackpot because so much is taken out in so-called "prize taxes".
We have a pool at work we all chipped in on, $5 minimum came out to about $300 worth of tickets. If the pool hits we take the lump sum and each get roughly 20mil.
Also me and a bro play "we hit, we split" all the time. Deal is If either of us hits the jackpot, we take the 30 year payout and give the other 1mil every year. If I win, I'm filthy rich and he lives comfortably. If he wins, vice versa.
If I hit I'd probably give some away on here for some kind of game. First to go out and get my name tattooed on their butt cheeks in comic sans font gets 500k or something like that
Won $2 from a stocking stuffer scratch off, turned that into a ticket.
It at that point would be totally free money. Yeah, I would.
That's why you start an "intentional community", just get the robots to make cheese or beer like trappist monks and forbid sex on campus
dindus don't go for cults, it would be camouflage
>go to the gas station to get cigs
>today literally a line to get powerball tickets
Considering the odds it's a really, really shitty investment. Why are people even bothering to do this shit?
Doesn't apply if you're not retarded enough to take all the money at once. How hard is to just live nicely for a month or two AND THEN start spending ridiculous amounts of money?
But no, people gotta be demanding it all up front, like they really need hundreds of millions of dollars RIGHT NOW.
This is from CNBCs tips after you win the lottery.... Guys... Buy your tickets NOW! THIS IS A SIGN!
You can't trust annuity. I'd much rather take all the money upfront (which is far more than enough to make all my dreams come true and them some) and plan it out so that if I die early or the lottery suddenly doesn't exist anymore, my family will have it for the future.
To correct myself, given the current jackpot it actually isn't a really shitty investment, but it is a kind of shitty investment
If nobody wins today it will probably be a good investment during the next drawing
Dude I would buy a house and give the rest to family
Comfy NEET life + familial pressure off my back
Reality would still fucking suck, but it would at least suck a little less
The funny thing is it wouldn't suddenly become awesome, though.
I'd buy 4chan and make it a US only website. I would make posting "professional wrestling" content a bannable offense. CP would be the only thing off limits. Welcome to Tony's 4chan, the chan for real Americans
>what if any of us will win
I will win
>we'd share right?
I don't share my success secrets with betas and autists
>Reading stories of lottery winners who blew all their money
>The majority of them aren't people who blew it on cars and parties and shit as you'd think, but people who got sued by their friends for not splitting the money, people who tried to claim the money through divorce, hand outs to family and friends and such and just general leeches attaching to them because they're rich now.
That's cool, any link to the math?
Aren't most jackpots like that though? Maybe not that high but I'm pretty sure if I olayed my cards right on say $10 million I'd never work.
I would automatically take the annuity, allow inflation to help me, and invest in municipalities in good cities for federal tax breaks and keep all le money
The Griffiths bought their dream home then life fell apart
Before they won a $2.76 million lottery jackpot, Lara and Robert Griffith hardly ever argued.
They bought a million-dollar house and a Porsche.
But 18 months ago, six years after their win, Robert drove away in the Porsche after Lara confronted him over emails suggesting he was interested in another woman.
Their 14-year marriage was over, a freak fire gutted their house, and every penny of their fortune was gone.
In 2004, Sharon Tirabassi, a single mother who had been on welfare, cashed a check from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. for $10,569,00.10 (Canadian).
She subsequently spent her winnings on a "big house, fancy cars, designer clothes, lavish parties, exotic trips, handouts to family, loans to friends" and in less than a decade she's back riding the bus, working part-time, and living in a rented house.
Luckily Tirabassi put some of her windfall in trusts for her six children, who can claim the money when they turn 26.
Construction worker Americo Lopes won the New Jersey lottery, quit his job and then lied about it, claiming he needed foot surgery.
After coming clean to an ex-colleague, he and a few others ganged up on Lopes for not splitting the winnings as promised.
Sadly, the court ordered Lopes to split the prize.
Ontario resident Ibi Roncailoli walked away with $5 million in a 1991 Lotto 649 drawing, but she didn't tell her husband how she decided to spend it.
When Joseph Roncailoli, a gynecologist, found out Ibi gave $2 million of her fortune to a secret child she'd had with another man, he poisoned her with painkillers, the Toronto Star reports.
He was found guilty of manslaughter and reportedly asked Ibi's family to help foot the bill for her funeral.
Against all odds, in the mid-1980s Adams won the lottery twice, once in 1985 and again in 1986.
The New Jersey native won a cool $5.4 million, but AskMen.com reports she gambled it away at Atlantic City.
Today she resides in a trailer park.
In 2002, West Virginia building contractor Andrew Jackson Whittaker Jr. walked away with $114 million after taxes on a $315 Million multi-state Powerball draw.
That was just about his last stroke of good fortune.
In two separate instances, thieves ran off with $745,000 Whittaker stashed in his car. Later on, he was sued by Caesar's Atlantic City for allegedly bouncing $1.5 million in checks.
Within four years, his fortune was gone.
A Pentecostal preacher working as a stockboy at Home Depot got his prayers answered when he hit the $31 million jackpot in 1997, Business Pundit reports.
At first, life was good with Billy Bob buying a ranch, six other homes and some new cars.
But like many others who win the lottery, he just couldn't say "NO!" when people asked for a handout.
Later in life he divorced and eventually committed suicide.
In 1989, Willie won a $3.1 million jackpot in the Michigan Lottery.
Fast-forward to two years later and Hurt got divorced, lost custody of his children, was charged with attempted murder, and picked up one helluva crack-cocaine addiction.
The habit was so bad, it sucked away his entire fortune.
When Denise Rossi won $1.3 million in the California lotto, she left her husband without a word, reports People's Pam Lambert.
Thomas knew something was up, but agreed to divorce her anyway.
Two years later, he intercepted a letter at his new L.A. pad revealing the truth.
He sued Denise for not disclosing her winnings in the divorce, and the judge awarded Thomas every cent.
After winning an $18 million lottery jackpot in 1993, Janite Lee's earnings were gone within a decade.
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports Lee, a wigmaker from South Korea, blew her winnings on, of all things, charity.
A reading room was named after her at Washington University's law school, and she was a major donor for the Democratic Party.
But her giving hand, coupled with a little gambling and a lot of credit card debt, allegedly did her in. She filed for bankruptcy in 2001.
In 1998, Gerald Muswagon won the $10 million Super 7 jackpot in Canada, reports BigLotteryWinners.com.
But he blew it all on drinking and partying in only seven years.
Filled with remorse, Muswagon hanged himself in his parents' garage in 2005.
Alex and Rhoda Toth hit the $13 million jackpot in Florida in 1990. Within 15 years they were destitute.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, the couple declared bankruptcy and were eventually accused of tax evasion by the IRS.
Alex passed away before his case went to trial and Rhoda eventually served two years in prison.
This is obvious. If you consider how much people can spend in a year and add to it how much a person who thinks he has unlimited money can spend in a year then considering anyone at any given point has 8 to 20 of these people around then its obvious they will bankrupt you.
That's why if I get the money I will live in a 5 star hotel and maybe invite my family to visit me 1 month of the year
Id share it among my immediate family, which leaves me at 180M before taxes. I'd use it to get a car, a home in a quaint neighborhood and donate about half to those in need (and my fellow robots) and use the rest to invest in the stock market.
can you choose to not be know if you win? or pretty much everyoned will know who ones the 900 mill.
No you can keep yourself anonymous. Many people have to avoid harassment, and if you somehow did win anon, lawyer up ASAP. People are going to try to get that money one way or another.
You're required to come forward publicly in all but 6 states.
And even if you were in one of those 6 states, good luck keeping the fact that you just became an instant billionaire underwraps.
Only a few states allow you to remain anonymous. Most require you to report your name. But prior to that most lottery offices allow you to form a trust or LLC before taking possession of your winnings. Then the trust is named instead of you.
>My trust would be Goldsteinenburgs Shekels LLC.
