Well Mercury is Retrograde for this next one I think :P

But there is a lot of talk on the net about the Powerball Scam Conspiracy

There is one meme going around the web that illustrates the level of stupidity these days



Seems no one on FB or Twitter can do math these days :P

That depends, to some people one billion is 109, to others is 1012

In Portugal, 1 billion (1 biliĆ£o) is 1012.

I would be happy with either amount. :)

Edited to add that, if I'm not mistaken, another difference between countries is that in the US the tax is taken from the announced prize, in most (or all, I'm not sure) European countries the tax is taken before the prize is announced, so people do get the amount advertised.

I might buy a few tickets.  If I remember.  Or maybe I'll settle for remembering to put pants on before I leave the house.

Okay still   in the US that would actually be $4.33  and in silly Portugal that would be $4,330.00  but since this is based on American $'s  splitting it up between 300 million would only be $4.33 each

In fact, in Portugal it would be $4.330,00, as we use the "," as decimal mark and the "." as thousands separator. :)

Perhaps Philipe can take his $4.33 and enrol in a math class.  He probably wants Trump in as president also.  ::) ::)

I bought my ticket.  One ticket is entertainment value.  Gets you into the game, your infinitesimally small chance.  God knows I've dropped more money on far more worthless things.

I spent $30.  If I win something, that's great.  If not, I blew $30.  I could afford to blow that much this year.  That's my gambling binge for the year.

Powerball jackpot of $1.6 bln to be split between three winning tickets




The Powerball draw on Jan. 14 2016 finally produced a winner. The winning numbers (pictured) matched three tickets, bought in Florida, Tennessee and California, which will share in the record-breaking jackpot. Let's take this chance to look back at the biggest lottery wins of all time.


(Pictured)

The winning Powerball numbers are shown after being drawn at the Florida Lottery studio in Tallahassee, Florida January 13, 2016. The winning numbers are 8-27-34-4-19 and the Powerball number is 10.

LOS ANGELES, Jan 14 (Reuters) - The winners of a record $1.6 billion U.S. Powerball jackpot had yet to come forward early on Thursday, with officials saying the prize will be split between holders of three tickets sold in Tennessee, California and Florida.

Each of the three winning tickets is worth $528.8 million, the California Lottery said. The winning numbers were 08 27 34 04 19 and Powerball 10.

The identities of the winners were not yet known. The winners in Florida and Tennessee have not come forward, lottery officials in those states said, and officials have not said whether anyone in California had sought to claim their share.

One ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven convenience store in Chino Hills, east of Los Angeles, California Lottery officials said. Two other winning tickets were sold at locations in Munford, Tennessee and at a Publix grocery store in Melbourne Beach, Florida, lottery officials in those states said.

It was the second time in a row that a Powerball jackpot winner came from Tennessee. Before Wednesday's drawing, the last winner was in November, when a Tennessee ticket holder claimed $144.1 million.

The drawing late Wednesday for the $1.586 billion jackpot was the largest ever lottery prize in North America. The odds of picking the correct combination were 1 in 292 million.

Crowds descended on the California store after word emerged it had sold a winning ticket, with excited customers snapping pictures and congratulating the sales associate. The store will receive a $1-million bonus, lottery officials said.
The prospect of becoming instantly rich sparked a ticket-buying frenzy that was expected to have reached a rate of $1.3 million per minute during Wednesday's evening rush hour, Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas lottery, told a news conference.

To receive the full jackpot amount, winners have to accept a multi-year annuity, whereas the lump sum cash payout for the jackpot was about $983.5 million, lottery officials said.

For every $1 worth of Powerball sales, half goes to prizes, 40 percent to causes such as education, and 10 percent to retailers who sell the tickets and other administrative costs, Grief said.

If no winning tickets had been sold on Wednesday the jackpot would have rolled over again, pushing the annuitized prize to an estimated $2 billion, with a cash value of $1.24 billion.

Powerball is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C. and two U.S. territories

I haven't checked my ticket yet.  I either won something, or I didn't.  I know I didn't hit the big one, so I guess I'll keep working.
