I really never play any lottery, but with the pot being 550 million this time around I threw some money in with some friends at work to see what happens. All I know is that it has been fun to dream about what we all might do with the money. We all say that we would come into work but I am not so sure that everyone would. If we were to win, I think I would want to do a couple of things.
1. I would not want to let any one know that I was a winner. I would set up a trust and have the money go into the trust. I do not want everyone coming to me for hand outs.
2. I would gift some money to all my family, that I am close too, in order to help them all out.
3. I would start a consulting company and offer all of my good technical friends very good paying jobs and give them all the best opportunity that I could.
4. I would also want to start a sports bar or something. Might be fun to have some sort of geek theme, but I doubt I would get a lot of business with that.
But that is all a pipe dream. But still fun to think about and talk about. So if you played the Powerball tonight, Good luck and if you win, have a good time with the money.
