When the jackpot was at a mere $500 million, one aspiring millionaire in Primm, Nevada, was asked what he would do with his winnings, his answer was honest, grounded, and realistic. And also thoroughly illegal.

"Bunch of hookers and cocaine," the man responded frankly.

The Fox 5 local news reporter laughed in shock at the man's admirable truthfulness and said, "Oh no, that's not good, that's not the answer we were looking for."

At first the honest samaritan looked as if he were going to apologize, but then thought better of it, and turned back to the task of filling out the bubbles on his lottery ticket.

For why must one apologize for truth?

If his dreams haven't changed since the pot hit the billions, the man could be rolling in his dreams on Wednesday.

Here's hoping all your dreams come true. And that the proper authorities do not recognize your face if they do. ✨

  1. What would you use the money for?

    Paying off my mortgage, buying my parents a house, and charity. 0:-)
    I would take it out in $100 bills and swim in it.
    Buying Greece.
    I'll have what he's having.
