The lottery fantasy: How much money do you need to say 'buzz off, world'?

"All this is pure speculation, of course. As I sit here writing, I'm eating a ham sandwich. That wouldn't be relevant to this story except for the fact that when I was making the sandwich a few minutes ago, I noticed that the ham from the supermarket deli had kind of a funny, "off" smell to it. I was going to throw the whole package away when I realized that a) the little printout on the label said we still had two days to go before the sell-by date, and b) this pound of ham cost us six bucks. When I asked my wife if she thought it was still good, she didn't even smell it or check the sell-by date. She just looked at the price tag on the baggie, and then at me, and said, "Eat it!"


LOL..... sounds like me.....Green laughGreen laugh

I need a $100 million dollars after taxes to tell the world where it can get off.I'll settle for much less,though and just keep my thoughts to myself.

656 Million or just over 300m cash Atfer all taxes

their only been 1 jackpot for that amount,and i wanted it................................



but i think i can get away telling world where to put with just 100m cash atfer taxes, so about a 200m jackpot or higher  i say

will get me to the  screw off world ! level.

that's when i can have my own pirate jet   ,and go anywhere i want,  any time i want, without having to get treated like the mass sheep at public air ports. etc

naked body scans, pat downs, Etcetera , no thx, i fly and travel  how very rich do it, ,  and just be like screw the dumb massives, their idiots for allowing oppressive authority over their lifes.


I guess for some, they need money before telling someone off. Doesn't really occur to me, if someone is annoying, I will make my feelings known.   Cussing Face

You are annoying and I don't need a lot of money to tell you that you are annoying.

The 40M$ j/p from wednesday's game would go along way to getting me to 'buzz off' status... 

26.5M$ lumpsum... net after taxes and fees and tithe and x,y,z ... about 50%... 13.25M$... 

i believe i could make do with 13.25M$ after all was said and done...

10 mils. would do it for me also.

No point in thinking about getting my job back,

they would'nt take me back even if I left quietly and politely.

$3,000,000 after taxes and I'm retired.

I could live a very comfortable and luxurious lifestyle just on $6,000,000 after taxes. 

But to buy all the fancy toys, vacations, and the Mega Mansion and a second home overseas, and to help out immediate family, give to charity and dabble in a business, I would need at least a minimum of $40 million for it to not even phase me.


My dream number would be $50,000,000 to $150,000,000 after taxes.

The current MM jackpot would be just fine for me but i wouldn't complain if it was more lol Big Smile


If you want to live well, $3,000,000 to $5,000,000 after taxes, if you want to live spectactularly, $10,000,000 after taxes.

That's why I would take any win in PB or MM. I could do fine with $3m.
