$500 million Powerball jackpot: What would you buy with half a billion dollars?
A rush for tickets has sent the Powerball lottery drawing jackpot soaring to $500 million Tuesday afternoon.
So what could $500 million buy you (ignoring taxes)? Well, you could take 100,000 of your closest friends to every Michigan football homegame for the next decade, construct 10 new underground parking structures, or build a 2.5 mile long monorail around downtown Ann Arbor.
If luck is on your side at 10:59pm Wednesday night like it was for Erik Hennigan of Pinckney for the Mega Millions drawing in April, what would you do with the winnings?
