Todd---totally understandable in the excitement---but in your story you have Tuesday March 30, 2012. Obviously it's Friday. Just a heads-up.

This is incredible.

The story is corrected for one Tuesday/Friday mix-up.

Hey, I got the story out at 1:12 am Eastern Time, before even the AP reported it.  Maybe forgive a tiny error like Tuesday instead of Friday?

All that $$ and i only got 7$ of it. LOL Cheap @$#%^&%$. I think thats all i'll spend fri.


Over at the Powerball HQ they must be hating the crap out of the MegaMillions right now. So far their plans must not be going well for the last few months. This week is going to suck for them really bad.

The Press Conference shouldn't last too long, BBLL. It probably depends on your personality and presence. Personally, I intend to flip up me kilt and give the mainstream media the old Scottish Salute.

You'll probably get your money in about 2 weeks.

Good Luck!

I Agree!            You always crack me up "rdgrnr"

In response to rdgrnr

Just out of curiosity can you tell me who the is in the mainstream media and who is not and can you define their differences? What makes one particular news source mainstream and the other not?

I appreciated learning from your knowledgeable response, Halle99!  This past 14 months, I had been wondering the same thing as GambleToRamble was above.

I also wish that there was a website that began showing a chart of MM and PB first and second place winning tickets and if the ticket was:  multi/advance draws, random #s, chosen #s, powerplay or megaplier option added, purchased city, purchased state, and total $ cost of ticket.

The msm is all the major news networks outside of FOX. They include but are not limited to, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and others. They control well more than 90% of the market.

They used to report the news somewhat fairly decades and decades ago but now seem to be merely a political arm of the Left if not an outright, in-your-face cheerleading squad.

FOX NEWS, as well as Conservative Talk Radio was born out of the frustration of patriotic Americans at the lack of fairness and balance in reporting the news. They give both sides of the story, not just the side that makes the Left look good like the msm does.

man this thing markets it self, ever news outlet got a side note about it if not full story.

lottery ceo's could not be more happy then they are now, this is their dream in sells


i like one part"

Lottery directors from participating states will confer every day this week to determine if sales merit pushing the winnings projection higher, she said by phone Wednesday."

also, i love seeing all new players,  am buying about 20-25 tickets my self for this draw, about same going out to movies/snack combo prices for me, so i don't feel its to much.

Yes, joshuacloak, it's a good way to run your 'budget math,' -- trade one form of Entertainment for a different one this draw.

This is my lucky 500th posted thought here!  I'm additionally motivated to win the PB $500M jackpot now!

     CDanaT..........Good Advice



             I just read  advice about being famous and what best to do when you've money . It doesn't surprise me

        what money can do to people . Then , You wonder why , they say , take 30 days before turning in your

        ticket , to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life .

             I know one thing , I ready to win the lottery , but I'm not wanting to become famous , I rather live

        off the interest . I feel when you go out and buy a mansion , luxury cars , that's when you overspend.

           I used to watch those Tv shows where people would go out and buy nonsense stuff , "statues "

         and other crazy things . I feel it's a waste of money.  I'm a practical person , I like the basic items .

            I feel making sure your family taken care of as far as education , mental needs , shelter ( 2,200 sq ft home )

          or smaller , food , clothing ( not over the top ) , and NOT spoil them . You get the idea .

            I understand everyone is different , when it comes to there needs or wants..........
