So, let’s just suppose that YOU are the Powerball winner last Wednesday of $337 million. What would you do with it?
>How much money is $337 million?
Well, if the winner wants a share a snack with friends, the money can buy 93,093,922 bags of Better Made Potato Chips. Or maybe the winner has a sweet tooth: the prize money will buy 78,554,778 jars of Sanders Dessert Topping.
Need some new wheels? How about 8,704 Lansing-made 2012 Cadillac CTS Coupes
The excitement of the win could make the winner want to take a vacation. The prize will buy 603,045 nights including full American plan (meals and art museum admission) at Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel! Or, the winner can visit all of Michigan’s Upper and Lower Peninsula sights, tastes and sounds because he or she will be able to cross the Mackinac Bridge 84,250,000 times!
A sports fan can buy 1,094,155 season tickets for Michigan State Spartan football for 2013.
Maybe the winner would like to further their knowledge base: he or she and 26,034 college bound contemporaries can enroll at the University of Michigan
Ah, the fantasy.
But if you’re reading this and YOU are the winner, maybe I’ve given you some ideas.
