Well, I didn't get one matching number on my Powerball ticket, good news, neither did anyone else! Saturday's draw is 213 million an estimated 104 million cash payout.
Not for me. LOL. A friend.

Well not live off, still work obv, but ykwim.
Get a tax attorney. Set up a foundation. Give yourself a salary out of the foundation.

Most I've gotten w/ scratchoffs was $20.

Most I've gotten w/ Powerball is $100.

I still buy my $5 worth of lottery tickets, tho, when the jackpot starts looking stella, lol.

LOL-I was 4/5 and remember singing Summertime in the backseat of the car with my friend. We liked the "che che che", background noise, childhood memories.
