Re: Powerball. What could you do with a 425 million dollar lottery win If I thought it would help, I would give a large portion of the money to my home city - provided they use it to build a decent rail transit system. (At the very least, build a rail connection from Omaha to Lincoln. It could pay for itself in a year just on Husker football traffic!) If they don't use it for that purpose alone, I get it back.
