Six numbers could change your life forever. Two people in the Northwest chose 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42 and can now collect their $190 million jackpot — before taxes.
A retired man who has come forward from Ephrata, Wash., will speak at 4 p.m. Thursday. The other winner, with a ticket bought in Post Falls, Idaho, has yet to step forward.
Imagine your life if you had picked those six winning numbers. Do you have mortgages, bills or loans to pay off? A child to put through college? You could buy Jackson Pollock's "No. 5, 1948," the most expensive piece of art sold in history, and still have half of the jackpot left over. Or maybe you'll take a more recreational route and buy a nice airplane. You could even go to space if you wanted.
They say money can't buy happiness, but a new airplane and a trip to space would make me smile — at least for a bit.
If you were holding a winning ticket, what would you do with the winning Mega Millions jackpot?
