Frank N Stein: With my powerball numbers, I would have won 250k with the regular Illinois lotto./pretty bitter.
Mercury: Speak for yourself. 7 of us pooled our money on tickets and we won $4.
Samwise Gamgee: Bah, you people don't think big enough.My evil plan:1. Start a private college.Note: Do not do this entirely with your own funds. Get together with investors but maintain control of the project. Do not put all your funds on the line; share the liability.2.

Offer kickass scholarships (funded with aid from the organizations mentioned above that you partner with) to what quickly becomes the most prestigious private college in the world. Every parent worth a damn wants their child to attend (YourNameHere) University. The name of your school start ...
