“Just wait until your father gets home!”

Caturday greetings from drear yet Happy Larryville, GN!

Holy carp…nobody won the MegaMillions last night; website says the jackpot value for Tuesday is $1.6 billion!!1! (I’ll be very surprised if it doesn’t exceed $2B by then…if it hasn’t already.)

What if no one ever wins it and it just keeps getting larger and larger?

It could be the backstory for a new sitcom. Starring Rosanne Barr.

…or Rosie O’Donnell.

G’day, Sven!

Sooner or later (and I suspect by Tuesday), MegaMillions’ own preposterous odds will catch up with it. 🙂

I’m actually quite surprised nobody hit the jackpot last night.

Given the media frenzy, I’m rather dissuaded from purchasing a ticket for Tuesday. Earlier this year, GA finally passed a law which allows lottery winners of more than $250K to remain anonymous, but still…

Even as a dopey teenager, I never had any interest in being a “celebrity” of any sort; becoming famous for winning an enormous amount of money is a bit O. Henry-ish / Rod Serling-ish for my tastes.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa-the-not-Famous, and Sven!

Man, I really hope it starts to cool down and the humidity starts to increase. Jerry Brown promised that if we voted for his bullet train (the only kind of bullet he likes), the warmening would stop.

Since the odds of winning the Mega Millions are 1 in 302,575,350 and there have been 800,000,000+ tickets sold, or probably 1 billion tickets by Tuesday, I’d say the odds are pretty good that somebody will win it.

I swear, Paddy, I sent the check to youknowho. In the proper amount. This wind and heat and dryness is not the way to begin autumn.

Sven --

I’ll check with Accounting.

(We recently had to let Moishe go due to some, er, very double-entry bookkeeping.)
