I've got zero interest in the lottery. I'd rather not become a member of the colorful 1% who're dragging us (the 99%) all down the shitter. Besides all that money should be put to much better use like feeding those who're starving and destitute in other nations.

320 million isn't even remotely close to reaching the hated 1% club. Why are most people completely ignorant when it comes to this whole 1% topic??

Yea.... cept if powerball is like megamillions, part of the money goes to schooling. Atleast that's the claim.

In my country, gambling is illegal except through a gambling government-monopoly who gives most of their profits to support healthcare and education. Makes sense to me. Don't see why private people should make money from other people's stupidity.

Hell, $213 million. That's a shitload of money. Wouldn't know what to do with even 5 mil. Probably buy good real estate, but the the rest of the money... IDK...
