you could give every adult 1M and still have
354,000,000 for yourself.

If you narrowed that to every adult making less than 300K yearly the payout to them would be even less (why give the rich any more).

Wow, what a cool thing to do, give every non-rich adult in America a million dollars. What do you think would happen to work/jobs/economy? It could get really wild for a while. Can you imagine if only half the people in America quit working. Shocking

To be honest, I think it would be disastrous. If I won, I would probably give some to close family members, but everyone in my family (including me) is irresponsible, and the money would almost certainly be wasted. It would probably ruin their lives and mine. And I suspect this is true of the majority of people. Winning would be a curse rather than a blessing.

Ummmmm, no. Consider

You could give 250,000,000 only $1 each, or 250 people $1,000,000 each.

To be honest I'm not surprised, except at me. But I've been running on 2-3 hours sleep for the last 5 days so my stupid has a cause. lol

(that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it) Tongue

Oh man, I can relate. I'm having a good week (this week), but there are times where 2 - 3 hours is all I get for days and days on end. I hate running on steam like that.

Get some sleep! Hug

Reminds me of an interview I saw on TV a few years ago when the US govt was offering a reward of $10,000 in Iraq for info as to where Madman Hussein was. The man selling balloons said if he got that reward he'd buy enuff balloons so he could stay out selling the whole week without having to take out time to buy more balloons!
