34 Powerball Memes & Tweets That Hilariously Sum Up How Distraught You Are Over Losing
The Powerball lottery drawing on Wednesday night seems to have been a bust, leaving millions across the country distraught at having to return to work tomorrow. Looking to share their anguish with others, Powerball losers flooded social media with some hysterical posts about their emotional journeys throughout Wednesday night's lotto draw. These memes and tweets about losing the Powerball are exactly how you feel right now, so at least you can take comfort in some schadenfreude.
The only silver lining is that you get another chance to try again, but this time the prize will be worth much less. On Saturday, the jackpot will fall to $40 million, which is arguably still a lot, but certainly not $700 million. However, that doesn't mean that you'll get $40 million put straight into your bank account. Depending on where you live, state and federal taxes can take a huge chuck out of that amount, as much as 50 percent of your winnings. The amount you receive also goes way down if you choose the lump sum instead of the recurring annual payments. If you do win, though, the cash upfront is the way better option in the long-term — that money will accumulate much faster if you invest it in large chunks instead of getting small payments over 30 years. But since you didn't win tonight, commiserate with these hilarious memes.
