The $640 Million Dollar Mega Millions Lottery. Did you get a ticket?

I rarely pick up a lottery ticket. When the jackpot gets pretty big, I get maybe 5 dollars worth of tickets. But the reports I've been hearing are insane. People spending thousands on tickets, the guy in front of me today bought $50 bucks worth. Its nuts, but this is the biggest jackpot in the history of the world. And they say that if there is no winner tonight, that the next jackpot could reach close to 1 billion dollars. Wow. So what could you do with $640 Million?

Feed 238,000 American families for a year.

Buy a 73 percent share of the Los Angeles Dodgers, based on the $2 billion that Magic Johnson and other investors agreed to pay this week for the baseball franchise.

Buy 1,265 seats/trips to outer space aboard Virgin Galactic.

Start a company and pay 10 employees $100,000 for 253 years.

Buy Michael Jackson's estate [$23.9 Million], Britney Spears' mansion [$2.9 million], Madonna's Beverly Hills mansion [$28 million], Jerry Seinfeld's Colorado estate [$18 million] and Michael Jordan's Chicago-area estate [$29 million] AND STILL have $150 million remaining.

To burn through it in a year, you'd need to spend $693,150 per day.

So yeah after tonight if you never see another post on this site again, you know what happened. BOOM!
