What's better than getting rich through hard work, talent, and sacrifice? Winning the lottery, of course. The Mega Millions jackpot is up to a whopping $290 million. Anticipation is running high ahead of Friday's drawing.
Too bad that so much of it will go to the Govt. in taxes tho. Always wondered why that is. Just can't seem to leave any pocket alone can they?
Great thing about Canada is if you win the lotto, you get it...in full. No tax because why should there be?

The strange thing here is that in california it is called the state lottery but the winners are from other states in the US
as for the taxes on that amount it really does not matter if you pay 30 or 45 % taxes you still end up with a nice amount to play with.
As for what i would do with it if i would win........
randomly spent a bunch
start a foundation that will fund investigation into topics like we talk about here
