It's hard for people to have a concrete understanding of vast numbers. At
least that's the theory behind a recent article in Kentucky's Courier-
Journal. The CJ compiled a list of purchasable items to help
potential winners of a $280 millon Powerball jackpot understand just how much
money they might be coming into. Some of the suggested purchases were as
follows: "Buy a $236,000 Ferrara M-GTA Couple for 473 of your closest friends.
Take a ride into space with Russian Cosmonauts at least 5 times. Throw a party
with 2.2 million kegs of beer or 45 million pounds of hamburger meat.
Resurrect Louisvill'e hoop dreams by purchasing a majority stake in the
National Basketball Association's Grizzlies, whose owner decided this year to
move the team to Memhis instead of Louisville." Given our druthers (and $280
mil) we'd have to go with the kegger.
