Mega Millions: What Do I Really Win?
To all my loyal podcast listeners, last week I attempted to get myself back on track with BI 016: Stick To Your Schedule. Sadly you will need to wait again for my melodious ramblings. However, with Baby Inspire entering the world next week, I hope you understand. In fact, I attended a car seat safety class and learned that 90% of all car seats are installed incorrectly! If you have a little one, make sure you are in the other 10%.
With the Mega Millions jackpot ballooning to 540 million dollars, I decided to pay my stupid tax. It would be great to win, but what do I really get?
My current team decided to start a lottery pool. Although we are from all different ethnicities, ages, and backgrounds, We all gathered together for a common goal. We just couldn’t agree on our team nickname when we take down the big prize.
You don’t have a pulse if you can’t get a little excited about possibly winning the massive jackpot. Everyone I speak to about it, even my very pregnant wife, immediately grins ear to ear.
For a brief moment, you have to suspend reality and think about your dream life. Where would you buy your dream home? Where would you go on your dream vacation? Would you leave your day job?
Can You Buy The Jackpot?
CNBC’s talking heads are usually clueless, but they had an interesting take on the Mega Millions jackpot. If you covered every possible winning combination, you would need 176 million dollars. With a 389 million dollar cash payout, that would be a very wise investment! It kind of takes away from the spirit of the lottery. But once again, it takes money to make money.
