Rhode Island lottery winner   Leave a comment

so powerball was $325 million dollars and I did my good deed and bought two tickets

I got up yesterday and heard that someone in Rhode Island bought the only winning ticket.

I just can’t fathom how anyone could spend that many millions
Granted after taxes chances are it would be more like 100 million, but still, can anyone spend that kind of money in one lifetime?

I said to my husband yesterday, “What do you suppose that person in Rhode Island is doing this morning?”

planning on how to spend it?
Sick with happiness?
vomiting with worry of how to keep it all to themselves?

planning a fantastic vacation?

I have said it before and I will say it again, I don’t think the lottery company should ever let it get that high.
I mean really
Who needs 100 million dollars?

Why not let it go to $5 million and then have a winner

that is still a bit over $2 million after taxes.

let there be more winners and fewer people getting this exceptionally high winnings.

Okay maybe I am a bit jealous of that person in Rhode Island, but seriously, wouldn’t every one benefit if they had 20 people winning $5 million instead of one person winning $100 million?
