Ummmm, no, in this case it's two words Mega and Millions, so mega means vast or of the highest level of ranc, etc. In a combined form it can mean a million.

like what buy a TV station? lol.. I live OK at 30k/yr, I couldn't imagine even 100k/yr let alone a freaking BILLION dollars. I couldn't shoot that much ammo but I would buy a good parcel of land and high fence that place to hunt and shoot..

ya know, id open a 1/4mi dragstrip in SoCal... A lot of people with fast cars and nowhere to take them but id live in Texas again.

$1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Morris County, so unless you bought it there, then it goes down to $10K unless you played the Megaplier, then 2X

Buzz off with your bullshit definition. What is a "megawatt"? Oh yeah, that would be a million watts. What is a "megapixel"? Oh, right, that would be a million pixels. I could go on like this all day.

Duh, they are combined words, learn how to comprehend a dictionary definition that i copied and pasted for you, Keep going all day long and dig yourself in deeper. Here is another hint for your thick skull, It's Mega Millions not Megamillions.
