Actually we are just contributing to it! I also read that you have a better chance of shooting two hole-in-ones on the same round of golf! If I win, I plan to play a lot of golf to prove the statisticians wrong!

For some reason I want to say the stat I heard on the news was chances are 1 in a 177,000,000. Pretty slim- thats why it's knicknamed a tax on the stupid. That said, I'm in.

So are you like Judge Reinhold in "Vice Versa", Matthew Perry in "17 Again", or Tom Hanks in "Big"?

one of my favorites lines of all time... and yes you cant win if you dont play and I agree the 15mins of adrenaline rush to think about all the possibilities is worth the buck...

I just went to buy my tickets and the clerk at the 7-11 informed me that if no one wins this jackpot, the government will take 1/2 of the next jackpot to get it back under $500 million. So once the jackpot does over $500 million, there is only one more crack at it and then the government takes 1/2. What type of BS is that!!!???

So that means I have a 5 in 177,000,000 chance!

What does the government care how high it gets? Your clerk was smoking to much pot this morning. Read an article that if no one wins this round then it goes up to 950'ish million.
