Yesterday I wrote a list about the most expensive homes in the world. The day before that I wrote about a $750 cigar that’s soaked in 50-year-old Louis XIII de Rémy Martin cognac. So that’s it. I’ve decided that I’d like to be filthy rich. And since the easiest way of achieving that is to win the lottery, I’ve put together this rundown of the biggest lottery jackpots in history—you know, so I can look for clues or patterns in the supposedly randomness. The good news is that there does seem to be a pattern where, mathematically speaking, there shouldn’t be. The bad news is that this pattern shows that you pretty much have to be at least 55 to win the big ones. So I guess I won’t be making an immediate ascent to a higher tax bracket.
Oh well. At least you have this list to read, and I won’t waste any money on lottery tickets for the next 25 years.
