That's the ticket.

Someone around here is very lucky.

I had to chuckle at this:

At a five-per-cent rate of return on interest and investments, when you factor in tax, the winner could make $625,000 a year off $25 million in winnings, she said. That’s a lot of money, but not enough to live a truly lavish lifestyle forever.

Six hundred twenty-five thousand dollars a year would more than buy all the lavish I've ever wanted. I'm dreaming of it now...a bedroom big enough to have two nightstands in it.... a dining room where you can walk around the table and chairs without hitting your elbows on the wall...a trip to Saskatchewan every month...a brand new set of rabbit ears with its own stand.....

I guess it all depends on what your definition of lavish is, although I will concede that, were you to actually live for an extraordinarily long time, you and your winnings would eventually be swallowed up when the sun went supernova and consumed the entire earth, including your $500 bottles of wine. But that's probably not your first concern when you've just won $25 million.
