Everybody hates Hugo...

Only one number matched Hugo's numbers though - 15, 17, 43, 44, 48, with a Powerball of 29

Wow, one can only dream I guess...
LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) -- Someone, somewhere held the only winning ticket for the record $365 million Powerball jackpot, but likely wasn't in a rush to come forward, Nebraska lottery officials said Sunday.

It makes our $19 million superdraw on the weekend look pretty piss poor.
The ticket holder has the option of taking the money in one lump sum or installments over 30 years. The cash option is $177.8 million, or $124.46 million after taxes. On the installment plan, the first payment would be $6,507,986 after taxes.

I think the installment plan would be the best way to go. Go blow your money in the first 12 months, get another $6.5 million next year when the novelty drops off (if it ever does).
