BIG MONEY, NO WHAMMIES 

BIG MONEY, NO WHAMMIES

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.
