Twitter Emotions Over the $1.5 Billion Powerball are Low Key Running Too High
Nobody won the Powerball last week, so that $800 million prize has now jumped to $1.5 billion. The odds of winning are slim but that doesn’t mean we aren’t all freaking out over the chance to be millionaires.
Some people are offering some pretty solid and level-headed advice on what to do with your winnings.
Por eso digo que el que se gane el POWERBALL tiene la vida hecha. Sólo es saber administrar la plata y ella se multiplica sola. Algún día

But, just like your probability of actually winning, the number of level-headed people talking about the lottery are very slim.
Most people are already blowing the money they
don’t have a chance of winning.

Why wait? If you are soo confident, just buy the stuff now and pay when you win. #simplelogic
While a few are planning some good community service with their winnings.

No te preocupes, El Chapo. Keith is on a mission to get you a new tank top.
There is some serious dough being thrown at the Powerball right now.

“Look. I know I don’t have a chance to win this, but just take all my money before I change my mind.” – Every Latino ever.
Some folks are finally coming to terms with the reality that they will never win.

Others have lost touch with reality completely.

You know, because dealing with famines and disasters is just too mainstream for God to handle nowadays.
It wouldn’t be a Powerball story without a Puerto Rico buzzkill.

Your statehood talk has no business here, buddy!
There’s speculation about where the jackpot money is really coming from.

Seriously, though. I don’t think El Chapo cares about the money.

You’d be the king, for sure.
But mostly, people just want the chance to prove that money is not going to change them.
