Perhaps Pi should be redefined to 3.19 for the day.

I've always proposed allowing the use of food stamps and welfare checks to buy lottery tickets.

It hands half the payments back to the government, saving half the entitlement costs right off the top.

That's not even counting the income tax contribution of another 39% of the remainder.

Please gamble responsibly.

I recommend out of the money calls and futures, where at least you get a fair shot for the odds, if you want the excitement.

Won't take that many to lose it all....

Perhaps it only applies to Intel processors.

Think of all those dollar bills that got wasted. That built this jackpot.

Or, as my mom used to say, every time they announced lottery winners, she was one, too. Because she didn't bet her dollar. And, she showed me it was still in her pocketbook.

UW could turn that jackpot into more than $6 billion in economic activity.

My favorite minor award offered in the Ohio lottery is two free lottery tickets.

That's a shitload of cash, even after taxes. I would simply walk out of my office and never return.
