3. If I hit that, I'd want to stay annonymous

And get the reward in a single payment (even though it's lower).

5. Yes.

I would have had two of the numbers. I never have more than two of the numbers. Which is why I didn't buy a ticket.

I also hope the winner makes a huge donation to Planned Parenthood. For kicks.

11. Do you have a problem with math?

I would say winning $640 million would make you a 1%er. No?

13. Do you have a problem with semantics?

The understanding of '1%er' has changed recently...

14. Your understanding may have changed. Mine is that sudden riches make someone a member of the 1%.

And that does not necessarily imply evil.
There are many 1% ers who see the inequality and support the movement to correct it.

....."This book is doing so well I'm now for the flat tax!"

16. I know a guy who won the lottery, $40-some million, took the cast option of $14M and changed his

phone number and moved immediately.
