2. Might not be a bad idea

Goofier things have happened one supposes.

If I won, figuring 50% goes to taxes right away. I would split it 50-50 with my daughter, set myself up a good savings amount, retire from my job, travel a bit, take up photography more seriously, buy a few toys and family members would no longer have to worry about house payments or education expenses.

I would also like to set up an educational foundation of some sort, but first a nice vacation would be in order.

4. Even lotteries are rediculous today wouldn't 180 people getting

a millon each make more people happy. I don't even waste my money on the big lottery, I buy the ones for $100,000 or so that's
plenty for me. You ever see who spends all their money in casinos and lottery, mostly people that are dirt poor. It's mostly a tax on SS
income, just look who wastes their money on it.
