Powerball, what a trip, I got the power ball and one number.....$4......... So I guess I'll keep making boat payments. What would you buy and where would you live if you won a check for say, 114 million after taxes (which is the 1 lump sum payout on 314m).

I would buy about 200 acres and build my own lake. After that I would build a mderate sized house for me and then one for all of my family. I would then use the rest of it to build my new company and invest it and make more

Alough with taxes he will only recive about 92-95 million, which isnt to bad. But going form 300 to 92 just from taxes is kinda weak.

The $315M jackpot value is based on a payout over a period of time (20 years?). The winner chose a lump sum payout instead, which reduced the jackpot to it's "present value" of about $170M, gross. Taxes took this figure--$170M--down to about $92M.

As for a boat? I already have a great one for boarding that is nearly new. Now I need an air-conditioned "mother ship;" something like a Sea Ray 460 would be pretty cool. Plus, the wake would be HUGE.

You all live in the wrong country. All of our lottery winnings are completely tax free. I think the largest win in Canadian history is about 35 or 40 million but the best part is the gov cant touch it.

Wasn't the guy who won already a millionaire to begin with?

So, the choice is 40M tax-free Canadian dollars or 92M US dollars after taxes. Which pile looks bigger to you?

Plus, you're dreaming if you think your government doesn't get a huge share. They just take it out of the jackpot upfront rather than tax it afterward.

winning all that money would affect my vision..........I couldn't see myself doing much of anything, except wakeboarding, counting my riches, and partying with b!tch3$.

Katana at 244' cruise at 32 knotts would be nice, but would settle for a nice Trinity in the 150 + range (Themis), Oceanfast (Little Sis 172'), Palmer Johnson (Pegasus at 197'), Starship or a large custom Feadship.

Leslie Wexner's Limitless at 315' feet that will cruise 25 knots would be sweet, but you wouldn't have enough money left over to overhaul the engines ever year or so.

How's this for West Virginia lottery winning jokes. Reminder, If I won these jokes would all be good in South Carolina also. Please don't take offense by them.

When interviewed, the winning lottery ticket holder was quoted as saying, " Now I can buy my sister the biggest engagement ring ever!!!" He then had to take a phone call from the local Fleetwood Mobile home dealership where he was overheard saying "Send me the biggest triple wide you got.....money is no object". The when asked what else he was going to purchase, the richest man in West Virginia responded, "Ima gonna git me the fastest Skeeter boat and them revenuers will never catch me!!!"

Why not buy one of each of the WB boats on the market!!! We could finally get a subjective opinion on everything! :-)

so where are the best places to live for 8-10 months of riding, and having mountains in your backyard?

Lake Country (The Okanagan British Columbia Canada!!)

Housing on the lake is fairly priced and a ski hill is 25 minutes from the lake...mind you the wakeboard season is usually only about 7 months long. California type summers and cool enough in the winter for snow. November is the only month that sucks, it's dark to early and you can't wake or snowboard (Although you can think of it as the month to get caught up on some neglected work).

Whoa! That's about the sickest thing I've ever seen. I better pick up those "f***** up sticks", like Robin Williams said, and start practicing. OR I could get a factory sponsorship with the manufactor behind Normans sweet ride. It should put out a descent wake..
