RE: Who wants a Billion $$$!
It almost seems silly to NOT submit a bracket, even with the terrible odds

I get the idea Buffet might be making money on Draft websites, magazines, tv-shows etc.

I guess this is the first lottery with a $1 billion dollar prize.

That'd it work out to be $340 million after the lump sum payment and taxes.

I can think of a few nice toys I can acquire with that bread....

Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: Who wants a Billion $$$!
Look at Buffet just throwin up a billion dollars like he's got nothing better to do, lol. I didn't do a bracket, but now I wish I had.

Can't say I'd go super lavish on anything. I mean, I'd put a Chipotle in my house and have it staffed 24/7. I'd also have jack daniels water fountains around the house. But that's it. Maybe build a nice cigar room and hire Morgan Freeman to read me books while I enjoy a stogie. But yea, I wouldn't blow the money on anything ridiculous. I'd put it to good use.

While the odds were not quite 2^64...

Suffice to say that no, actually paying out was not something he need ever have worried about.

... this is my signature!

I don't even watch basketball. My picks would have been as good as buying a lotto ticket with random numbers.
