You might want to check your Powerball numbers. Maybe you didn't play but know someone that did? Tell them to check these numbers and see if they won. If they check their numbers and discovered they won $50,000 they owe you a nice steak. In fact, two people in Illinois won 50 grand which is a decent prize. The big $435 million winning ticket was sold just over the border in Indiana, according to USA Today.

You can check see if you matched these winning number - 10, 13, 28, 52, 61, Powerball: 2.

It probably wasn't you because the odds aren't in your favor... or mine. Thanks to USA Today for pooing on our hopes and dreams.

The odds of winning any Powerball prize are 1 in 24.9, but the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 292.2 million.

I heard somewhere that most big lottery winners go bankrupt, so maybe we're better off not winning.
