You better pray that her work pool doesn't win. Just google the horror stories of people who won that were in a pool. Never a good idea.

The bigger horror story is declining to be in a work pool and then having that pool win. I would imagine the suicide rate of those folks is high.

Work bought like 100 tickets or so, I didn't buy any.

I bought 3 tickets. Wish me luck. Srsly, if I win, I shall find a way to prove it to you all.

And the answer to the question is "NO". Even if I win it won't keep me from posting on the VGF. I mean really, if I win, I won't be at work anymore and I'll be pretty damned bored and I will need to talk to someone outside of my new mansion. Heck, I might even have some kind of give away contest to the folks here at VGF. Makes me excited just thinking about it. ^_^

Even if I won a lottery and were absurdly rich I would have to keep working at least part time. I'd probably go insane otherwise.

Edit: Unless I was busy repopulating the earth from my zombie-proof sanctuary. That's a full time job.

If I won I would start my own company. I'd still want to work but would only be able to do so if I was running the show.

Just have a sign that says "I'm Kung Fu bitches!" when they put you on TV and hand you the big check.

Wow building the spencer estate has always been my lotto dream as well.

If I won, there is no way on god's green earth that I would work again. That's what hobbies are for. I don't work for any sense of self-worth, but only to earn a paycheck. Take that incentive away, and you take away the only reason that I ever leave my cave in the mornings. If you were the sole winner of the jackpot, your weekly paycheck would be a pittance. So ask yourself how much your time is worth when you're doing something that you don't really enjoy.

I do play bad games for achievements, so not much worth for my time.

I wouldn't keep my current job but I would probably take a ton of college courses until I found a field that would be a pleasure to work in. Even then it would probably be only part time.

I'd still post here of course and perhaps even give out games to people for free. Of course I will only send Donnie, M, and Mel PS3 games.

You've got to provide equal trolling for the sonymites by sending them 360 copies.

Eh, that's too much work. I'll stick with really bad Wii games for all.

Yeah, I cook and I enjoying cooking, but, I win the big bucks I'm not going to do it for a living.

pyroguy says:
look at the bright side dude, if you did manage to win this lottery, i'd go out with a bang at the jobplace by doing something outrageous like getting on the P.A. system and tell all of the bosses to "go to hell" (Amazon wouldn't let me use the F-word on here, so i'm just improvising a little) with other co-workers laughing and cheering

Then they realize they made a grave error, and you actually only won ten dollars - then you make the walk of shame back to work only to be told to get the "hell" out.

Lol, I would definitely be tempted to do the same thing as well. Too bad my work doesn't have an intercom.
