    So some cat from RI takes home $330,000,000. What's the biggest/best thing you've ever won? Know anybody (Awesome Angelo doesn't count) who has hit it big?

    Well I should rephrase that because it was really his mom who won the lottery.

    Once at a minor league baseball game, my ex-husband, two sons and I were picked out of the crowd to win some kind of Home-Run Package. We were moved to seats directly behind the plate, they gave us four team t-shirts, four tickets to a future game, and four tickets to a buffet at a casino. LOL!

    There's was a gal at SFN whose brother hit the lottery. Can't surface her name at the moment. :facepalm:

    I won the pack and then the troop-wide Pinewood Derby car race in Cub Scouts one year! And the next year I won best design! My dad and I were like Pops and Speed Racer! :c

    And then one time I won a "name that tv theme song" game. This is teh Vyb's hidden talent, btw. But all I won was Mardi Gras beads and tickets to Downtown Disney. :facepalm:

    But that's about it. :facepalm:

    That's alotta fuckin money either way. Also depends on if he did the cash up front or the annuity payments but $180M is still an INCREDIBLE take home.
