Is it too much for me to ask that I win the 70 million lottery?
I mean really.
Current Mood: enthralled

Too much to ask? Absolutely not. Just too much to expect that you'll win ;-)

Well if i won the "70" million and opted for the cash now which according to the websites calculator.
I'd end up with 30 million after taxes. If i took it in payments i'd end up with 32 million after taxes.
I wonder if you could sue for false advertising. heh
wow they make you pay taxes on it?

Yep. 27% of it goes straight to federal tax
and 3.5% straight to state tax.
Plus tack on probably another 2% for my city tax if i won.
we dont pay taxes here if we won, and yet people seem to go bankrupt after they win...:)
Actually I think it's 30 million after the cash option discount and before the taxes. I work the evil beast machine from doom, and /I/ have the winner in my pocket... I need to win or... the world will explode... or maybe the world'll explode if I do win.

You are correct.
Its like 21 mil after taxes. i'm still fine with that though heh.
I'd be fine with just one mil. 21 would be great, though.

Heck i'd be in heavan with 10 k.
i'd be out of debt and have a new laptop computer.
Yeah, 10 K would be nice. I'd be out of debt as well and have enough left over to escape.
hey, ol' buddy 'n pal of mine... ~_^
