There’s always plenty of chatter about the jackpot and what people might do with it if they win, and it’s pretty rampant on Twitter. Here’s a sampling of what people are saying:

“ima buy me a powerball tomorrow and Lord let it be the one to get me outta here” – My momma! Lol. Lord forgive her!
If I win $181M in Powerball I’m taking a space flight so I can get some sleep.
