16. I bought twice as many as I usually do, and didn't win anything last night...

 

I'm just hoping that we get a good DUer win sometime this year a big jackpot, and that this person can see the value to putting a big chunk in to progressive media outlets like FSTV or the like. We all have limits as to how much we can put in political campaigns, but if we invested in good progressive media sources that are so underfunded now, perhaps we could help have a good informed electorate before November when it counts to have an electorate make a good decision on this critical election!

20. I won

$4.00 for matching the Powerball on 1 of 10 tickets I bought. Hadn't bought a lottery ticket
in 20 years, so I figured I'd put in $20. Net ($16.) Doubt I'll buy another ticket for
another 20 years!

I did have about 4 other tickets that matched 1 number. If only I could have combined them!

21. Better hire an accountant, a lawyer and a financial advisor

Might want to change your phone number, because you're going to have friends coming out of the woodwork now!

30. Exact Same Thing, MM

I got $7 on a $4 ticket, too.

Well, with gas prices as they are, that's at least 1.7 gallons of free gas.
