Dear MegaMillions Winners, Buy This Boeing

April 2, 2012 at 9:36 AM | by | ()

We didn’t call out sick this morning, and that basically confirms one thing—we didn’t win the MegaMillions lottery over the weekend. It might not have been our lucky day, but it was certainly a wonderful weekend for three lucky winners scattered across the country in spots like Maryland, Illinois, and Kansas. We haven’t looked through the family tree yet to determine if we’ve got any long lost aunts or uncles, but we do have a suggestion for those looking to cash in some of their winnings—a private plane.

Boeing has just released some new information and pictures that show off a new version of the Boeing Business Jet. Our suggestion is to immediately place a down payment on this variation of a Boeing 737-700, and then work out all the financing and other details later. Just imagine cruising around—it has a range of around 5,600 nautical miles—with your family and friends. We’re pretty sure you can customize the thing anyway you want, but after looking through some of the photos and renderings of one option—we’ll just have what they're having.

Where Would You Travel with $640 Million Dollars?

March 30, 2012 at 2:52 PM | by | ()

It's a record breaker! The MegaMillions lottery pot—already huge at $540 million—was raised at noon today to total $640 Million Dollars. These are the final few hours to line up at some skanky convenience mart and pick your numbers as the winning digits get announced TONIGHT.

Megamillions is played in twelve states: California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington, and hopefuls who purchase a ticket stand a 1-in-176 million chance of winning the big payoff.

Now imagine for a moment that the winner is you and you opt for the lump sum payout. After taxes, that leaves you with around $300 million burning a hole in your bank vault. Where would you take your first blow-out trip? Would you hop around to locations of James Bond villain tropical headquarters or opt for a year of private jet sharing? How about both? How about taking us along?

Let your imagination run wild and tell us your super-millionaire travel dreams in the comments!
