The Powerball lottery is up to $650 million. But, according to a story from, winning the lottery can be great for you -  but not your neighbors. Unless you live next to Bill Gates. Apparently, research shows that when people win a lot of money, they start buying up toys and spending money on their house. The neighbors then want to try to keep up and, in the process of doing that, frequently go bankrupt. So, if you win the Powerball lottery, please leave so that you don't make us feel inferior. We'll already have enough issues without you and your alligator skin toilet bowl seats.

Because that's what I totally would buy if I won the lotto.
