Powerball Mania

Everytime the Powerball jackpot gets in the $150,000,000 range, there is the obligatory story on every newscast locally (and surely nationally) about buying tickets, what people would do, etc.

What always bothers me is the story I hear at least five or six times a year.

"Long lines expected for Powerball".

I've never seen a line more than five deep at my local convenience store, and half of them are only buying gas.
