If I lived within 50 miles of the US border, I’d hop down to buy a powerball ticket everytime it hit $300 million.

Yeah that paltry 325 mil last week wasn't worth the effort.

My retirement plans are finally starting to see fruition. Just when I was losing hope.

Look for 2 days of news covering the long lines to purchase ticket.

[I got 2 at a local convenience store early this morning. No lines at all. $4 at a chance for $425 million. Sure, why not.]

Not for Nothing but after the Supreme Ct. Decision on Obamacare you apparently DON’T have a choice on feeding the beast. But at least the lottery money goes to the individual states and you have a choice....you get to decide to buy or not buy lottery tickets. So if it’s your choice not to induldge in buying lottery tickets I respect you decision.

The ticket’s the cost of a beer. I’ll skip my afternoon beer for a couple of days and have fun dreaming. No harm, no foul!

I do not respect that decision. It is asinine to put your money into this scam. Anyone who does is a fool and I lose a tiny but finite amount of respect for anyone who does.

It’s not much of a retirement plan, but it is what it is.

"Buying lottery tickets is a complete waste of time and money."

"Complete" implies they are 100% a waste. I would argue that they're probably only a 99% waste of time and money. Certainly, somebody sooner or later will win it. For those who don't win it, it's the opportunity to dream about winning for a few days, and to think about how one would use the money. For some people that can be a healthy endeavor carefully examining and evaluating one's priorities, wants and desires and the actions they would take given virtually unbridled economic freedom.

I haven't played in years precisely for having done the above :-)
