The Mega Millions lottery jackpot stands at a record $500 million, and some people on Twitter are declaring what they'd do with the money if they won Friday's drawing.
Using the hashtag #IfIWonTheMegaMillions, many—as you might expect—said they'd never work again; some said they'd buy lavish cars and houses, take their friends to concerts as VIPs, or pay their student loans; others would donate their winnings to charity.
Many, though, have some odd plans.
"I'd hire Morgan Freeman to read me bedtime stories every-night," Shaka Yeeloy wrote.
"I would wisely invest it," another tweeted promised. "I'd also buy a bunch of midgets and paint them orange."
Hey, you never know.
"My daughter will have a limo driving her to daycare," Angelus Mortis, sounding a bit like a Vogue columnist, wrote.
Kyle Lopez would buy an Apple Store "so I don't have to wait in line anymore." (With $476 million, Lopez could hire Morgan Freeman to wait in line for him.)
"INSTANTLY hire security!!!" Jon Castillo tweeted.
Thinking like a Motor City Donald Trump, Billy Ray Valentine "would buy the eastside of Detroit CASH and make it a resort!"
The chances of winning Friday's jackpot are one in 176 million, according to the Associated Press.
Echoing the sentiments of more than a few others, D.T. would "vanish."
Just don't say that to a future employer. According to MSNBC.com, "Would you quit your job if you won the lottery?" has become a popular question for hiring managers in interviews with applicants.
"Recruiters report that high numbers of job seekers blab negative information without realizing they're making a farewell address to a job opportunity," Joyce Lain Kennedy, author of "Job Interviews for Dummies," told the site.
Instead, Kennedy said, you should say this: "While [I'd] be thrilled to win the lottery, [I'd] still seek out fulfilling work."
