Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is expected to be a record setting $1.5 billion. Money like that is immediately going to turn someone into an empire maker. Yesterday, I blogged Mark Cuban’s ‘6 Pieces Of Advice For Whoever Wins‘ and for the most part he’s spot on. The overall gist of his advice is ‘don’t be stupid with your money, play it safe and you’ll be more than comfortable for the rest of your life’. That’s what this article’s about, this one right here’s about all the crazy shit you can buy if you win the record $1.5 billion Powerball jackpot.

First up let’s take a look at all the countries who’s GDP is less than tonight’s Powerball jackpot. I’m not suggesting that you can actually buy these countries when you win the Powerball tonight but if they were for sale then you could afford to buy them…maybe:
