Same.

Cloth interior swap. HIR1 high beam upgrade. Yellow Lamin-X fog light film.

I want to know how much money was spent to get the jackpot to $1.6 billion. Anyone have the answer? I am guessing around $5-6 billion - give or take a billion. Wow.

If it was heads/tails, I'd still lose. Lotteries are just taxes on those bad at math.

2015 Outback 2.5i Limited FDF/PP4 - no nav, no moonroof, no keyless, no Eyesight
Parts left out cost nothing and create no service problems - Bunkie Knudsen
It's love that makes a Subaru, not necessarily a logical user experience.

Rub will never give up on subarus,....if you win you will just buy more.

maybe a H6 in every variety / year made

XT6 to 2019

and change oil in every one of them.....maybe buy out blackstone labs, so you can DIY your tests, as CEO / Chairman.

? Want people to stop needing to ask what exact car you have? year -model -engine -trans, scroll down to "your car":

They changed the formula a while back so that the chances are smaller but it would result in bigger jackpots. So they could advertise bigger jackpots. So more people would play.

I had a thought on whether state funded lottery is morally questionable knowing that there are such a large number of families ruined by addiction. Weighing that against the good things the lotteries fund is a tough one.

Don't know if we're there yet.

I blame me for Rub not winning.

The lottery being state-run, this information is publicly available. Approximately 60% of Mega Millions sales is returned to players as prizes - much of the rest goes to schools, roads, etc. Doing some math, a $900M lump sum jackpot (the $1.4B nominal annuity is just the same $900M invested over 30 years) would be funded by about $1.5B in lottery sales. I'm not accounting for some money disbursed in smaller prizes, but it's relatively small.
