roughly 675 million after taxes. if you take the annuity, you get all $1.5 billion in annual payments of roughly $22 million a year before taxes. and unlike most annuities, the payments do not stop if you die before all the money has been paid. the payments would go into your estate should you die before all of that. you know, if the powerball lottery is about 10 or $15 million. it doesn't matter. whether you take the up front, much. think about it, at 1.5 billion, if you take the up front at 930 million, you're missing out on more than half a billion dollars if money that is due you. so, take the annuity, and run. and as rob schmitt's already proven, you can live on $22 million a year anyway. >> i was just going to say though, you can't, you know, 22 million, yeah, get it all, you get it in more money in the end, difference that big?
what if you die? you still get, but you didn't get to enjoy it. you know. >> that's all right. >> is that all right? >> your loved ones will, rob. come on. well, fair enough, bill. >> see you tomorrow. >> thanks, bill. all right. dave price, a lot of people standing on long lines and kiosks all over the city. >> no one gets frostbite standing out in the elements. when it's this cold, you can, watch it, 15 mirns and these temperatures with this wheelchair can be dangerous. so, let's walk on over to the hopefully your take the tickets are bought, if not, find a place indoors maybe and just to hang out there if nothing else for a little while. numbers look like this, it is 26 degrees, we have sunshine, clouds out there as well. let's go to the headlines right now. very, very cold, through tomorrow morning, that's simply the way it's going to be. a workweek warm-up, what little we have left of the workweek is going to be much warmer than it has been during the last 24 hours or so. so that's great news.
