40% of $360 million is $144 million.
I'll play $1 (1) if the pot is over $70 million, and (2) I happen to remember to buy a ticket while I'm already out.
What would I do if I won?
I'm not going to lie. It would be the most epic downward spiral of self-indulgent debauchery that the world has ever seen.
Wouldn't it be 40% of $259M if one took the cash option?
In other news, I didn't win sadly.
