Do you play the (Powerball) lottery?

The Powerball Lotto is up to 90 million on Sat. I don't play for much because the odds of winning are so low, but... that much money! It's worth five or ten bucks just to daydream what you would do with that much money! Screw Vegas... no one wins there!

I went to college. I got a good job. I save and invest my money wisely. I have much to show for my effort. The bottomfeeders of society deserve what they get!

Seldom if ever. You are 15 times more likely to be struck by lightning, than winning the powerball. So, in the event I receive my 15th lightning strike, I'm going, straightway, to buy a powerball ticket, that is, if I survive.

How much did you spend on tickets?

I would offer Shane 3 Million for his car collection, change all the locks, then sell it back to him on ebay for 4 Million....

Sly, you are too funny. And, sorry Shane, he's probably not too far off on the truth for this one.

I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

NO. You harlot. I mourn those who play Powerball, that's all.

There are lots of indications of just how desperate and stupid the average American is, and Powerball jackpots are one of them.
