What would you do with $500 million?

November 27, 2012

The Powerball jackpot just increased from $425 million to $500 million.  

I couldn't even imagine having $500 million but I'm going to try.

We were just discussing what would we do if we won the jackpot.

I heard a number of different answers including giving some to charity, quitting a job, keeping it all and buying new things. 

If you won the lottery, what would you do with the money?

The fun part about buying a lottery ticket is daydreaming about what you would do with the money.

My dream would be to open my own bar.  I've always wanted to own my own business and I think having my own place to hang out, drink beer and watch sports would be perfect for me.

How much would my tax be on the winnings if I won it all?

What are my real odds of winning?

What would you if you won this jackpot?

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
