    Who's in and for how much? I think I overheard on the radio coming home that ticket sales were something on the order of $169,000/minute...can you imagine how much higher that would be if the economy wasn't in the tank? :rolleyes:

    I say if anyone on WFF wins, they take the entire forum out for burgers and beers. Since you will instantly become one of the 2 percenters (recently changed from 1 percenters), it's the least the winner should do.

    I have expensive tastes... I don't know if winning the money would cover everything I want. I'd probably blow the whole works on waders with a zipper and a high-zoot rod... maybe I'd have enough remaining to buy a new hat... but I doubt it.

    I bought six bucks worth... that's all I had on me.

    Your chances of winning are greatly reduced.

    My college statistics teacher said gambling (lottery) is a "tax on people that do not understand statistics".

    Someone wins. Someone is hit by lightening... more than once. Someone catches winter steelhead with fly gear. Besides, winning the lottery is the only retirement plan I can afford.

    About 2 yrs ago a local man in our tiny community of Ephrata hit the big one. THE BIG ONE. Holy crap, I've never seen such a media frenzy in my life. It was insane. Pretty cool, too.

    Somebody is going to win. I'm in for $10.

    I'm not in, but my wife bought $5. If she wins I guess we'll find out if she really loves me :)
