What would you do with a $1,500,000,000 Powerball jackpot?
Yes, you are counting the correct amount of zeroes. The current Powerball Lottery jackpot is over 1.5 billion dollars, which is enough to pretty much feed the entire world several times over. Of course, if you take the lump sum payout vs. the 42 annual payments, you’d only receive a paltry $930 million, which would barely fill the deep end of Scrooge McDuck’s golden coin swimming pool.
That being said, what do the lay-folk have to say about what they would do if they were suddenly endowed with $1.5 billion? (Warning: responses range from entirely too responsible to PG-13):
“my freedom back from debt”
“Haha! I’m really swamped this week so we’ll see”
“An island…. Probably in Greece because they need cash”
“a coachella house with a pool”
“an apartment in NYC”
“Probably a yacht and hella bL*w and take everyone partying”
“lots of puppies …Ideally I’d like to put them in a giant ball pit and see what happens. nothing makes me happier than puppies…thus all my money goes to puppies”
