    You really don't get the 300 Mil - just part of it every year. Much better to have a bigger lump sum working for you now. If you are prudent, you will have much much more than the 300

    Bless ya Giz, but we are worn out, cranky and getting on each other's nerves over this hunt and it isn't worth years of friendship to haggle over this hunt. The younger Meaners are thoroughly discouraged by how the hunt has developed and if we want to keep the Simikkles going we have to have new younglings join and keep it alive, and this hunt just WASN'T doing it. We lost several veterans who were just plain fed up with first, Alchemist Dar, and the way this one didn't live up to our expectations . The whole hunt up to the key sequence was fun , then it got ugly. We have other hunts to ponder, and may do some geocaching as well. We'll pop in once in awhile.
    "We may not be first, but at least we are not last!" Meaner Simikkles RULE!

    Hate to see you go team Simikkles, but understandable. Many people have already gone from this hunt because of the way it has shaped up. Definitely check in from time to time and let us know how ur doing on any of the other hunts. Also let us know if find some really fun ones to work on.

    Believe me. I KNOW that. I posted that.... because if you take into account that 90% of mega-lottery winners have nothing left after 20 years (fact..not me) and 90% of them took the payout rather than the annuity.....and then you factor in that this "game" has 13 1/2 parts.....it seems rather "odd" to give up after less than 10%. I think you missed the point of my post. If you need me to spell it out PM me please.

    90&#37 = 90% (in the previous post)
