I'm still waiting to hear back from MasterCard on my request to increase my credit limit to $176 Million but I got a pretty good feeling on this one.

$640 Million?
Two Words: Unlimited Possibilities.

If your smart you'll be able to expand upon that number. Right now I have 5 tickets for today, but if it keeps going up at the rate it has been and it reaches $1 Billion I'm spending $20 on tickets.

Quick question though, if someone wins that money are they considered a 1%'er?

This could cause issues as I just put $176 million in tickets on my AMEX Centurion Black card... Odds could be getting worse...

Just bought my lotto ticket from the gas station. It's too bad they can't make it high enough that we can divide it enough to lower the unemployment rate

The real story in this high jackpot amount is how much the state will make in taxes if they provide the winner(s). Plus the store owner gets a cut.

depends on how fast you burn through the money. if it were me, I'd buy so much bling and jewelry that I would leave a diamond encrusted slime trail where ever I went.
