I never bought a lottery ticket. But friends have told me that it's worth $1 or $2 just to fantasize about what you'd do with the money if you won.
Let's see, $50 million over 20 years, that's $1.5 million a year. I could write a $10,000 check to every friend I have and still buy that Ferrari! I could charter a business jet to go to Europe! I could pay off my house and buy my parents a new one--no that might take a couple years. I could get a helicopter license! I could send little Billy and Mary to whatever college they could qualify for! Hell, they wouldn't HAVE to go to college! I could buy a house by the lake, and then sell this one because I wouldn't have to work any more! Wow, I could tell my a**hole boss to just suck it! Wouldn't that be great? 8^)
