Open Thread: How Would You Spend Your Powerball Winnings?
The new jackpot has reached $550 million.
To paraphrase comedian Chris Rock: $500 million! Good lord, that’s a lot of money.
UPDATE: The jackpot has increased again. How about $550 million?
But the best part—excluding the person or people who actually win—is dreaming about what you would do with all that money.
Some people would do something eminently practical like paying off the mortgage, some would want to be philanthropic and others would train an army of monkeys to run their hyperlocal news website so they can sleep all day.
Hopefully when the drawing happens at 10:59 p.m., your dreams will become reality.
So what would you do if you won the Powerball drawing? Tell us in the comments.
