Yep. Bought it at the TrexMart in Dearborn, MO. (not really)

No, but if you should win it's one heck of a return on investment.

Another poll without a response I would select.

What is wrong with just no. I put no, but I do not think buying a 2 dollar ticket for remote chance to win over 500 million is a waste of money. Yeah, I get it gilzillion to one, but 500 flipping million dollars, yeah no issue with 2 dollar chance even remote at that one.....

But, it was hardly a priority and I did not buy one so the most accurate response for me would have been no or no I did not get around to it.

I have not bought a lottery ticket for myself since the first year it came out or became legal but I have no issue with those that play as long as they keep it for fun and do not have stupid expectations about it...

(that was long and probably just read blah, blah, blah but whatever)

Too much money; and, I'd have to leave Lawrence and most of my friends. I don't think many people buying those tickets understand just how their lives would change with that kind of moola. It could be a very lonely existence. So no, I'm not buying a power ball ticket.

Money can't buy you love.

It's cheap entertainment.

Buying a "ticket" is about buying a ridiculous dream. You will never win, but you can always dream.

We can buy cheap and marvelous dreams!

Our dreams sustain us in this ridiculous world. All is certainly lost, but vision brings a wealth of hope...for a few bucks...unlike much else in this world. OH, if only our losses brought us redemption from our failed electoral system. Super PACs? REALLY? It's about the worst thing that's been allowed to come our way. Thank you, politics. You suck.

Both the poor and the rich probably feel this way. Yes? No?

I told my wife we'd get about as much out of the money by flushing it down the toilet. She bought two.
