Same... St Jude and HAVA would be getting big checks. Couldn't imagine ever needing that much money. Id by land in Texas, maybe Nevada and build one hell of a shed and load it up with tools and cars. A million would last me till the day i died. Im a very simple person but my medical debt is pretty bad but its the only debt i have

edit- a vault/gun room... id get my class III license and go full auto crazy shooting on my land... kind of like Ted Nugent up in Michigan. High Fence, 100 acres DROOL

Ummmm, no. "Mega" usually means a million. So a "mega million" would be a million millions, also known as a trillion. For the name "mega millions" to be truly accurate, the jackpot would have to be greater than 1 trillion dollars. A "mega billion" would be a quadrillion.

Interesting question. Years ago, my wife and I would often say things like "If we won a million dollars, would it really be life-changing?", and facing college tuitions and the like, the answer was normally "probably not". I mean, it would have made paying for the educations a done deal, but would we really be ready to "change our lives", like retire early, move to the warm climate in a nicer house than we live now etc.? No.

As time has gone on, the answer has changed to "yes". In fact, I was doodling some math for my wife a few days ago, and I believe that coming into an unexpected income of about $650,000 before tax would be "life changing" for us at this point. She agreed, so we are just fine with winning the "second prize" with our one $2 ticket.
