The Mega Millions jackpot is juicy, but thanks to new, longer odds, it's entirely possible the payout could reach $1 billion by Christmas.
Nope, that wasn't a typo -- "b" as in "boy."
When no winner was selected in Friday's drawing, the jackpot rolled over to $550 million, and it jumped again Monday to $586 million, with a cash payout of $316.5 million, said Tandi Reddick, a spokeswoman for the Georgia Lottery.
We can afford to give billions away in the lottery, but can't afford to feed the hungry or give medicine to the sick. This is one screwed up country.edit on 17-12-2013 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)

With the money, I plan to pay off my cable bill, and with the rest? Buy a cheeseburger.
