Pay off my bills

Buy a house

Furnish my new house

Buy a car

Pay off my Mom's debts

Give some to charity

put the rest on the floor,and roll around in it naked,then put it in the bank,and live off the interest!!

Buy out the liquidated remains of Interstate Bakeries (Hostess/Wonder Bread) and bring all the workers back. And if I had any more money left over, I'd go back to the former Sensata workers and start a brand new company to compete with the Chinese Sensata plant that Mitt Romney and his buddies at Bain Capital sent the jobs to.

When I win I'm going shopping! I'm going to shop til I can't shop no mo!

And then when I'm tired of that, I'll start designing my new home. I'll fix up my current home and give it to a friend or family, or perhaps donate it to an organization.

Then I'll travel, take cooking classes, go to school for business, open up my own roller skating rink complete with an animatronic band and maybe my own scrapbook/coffee shop.

And I would help my family, friends and community financially.

I have to remember to stop and get a ticket or two... doh!

hmmm

  • I'd pay off my bills... whew
  • Take care of my Parents and Sister and Brother... touched
  • Buy a new house. I love this one, but I'd have to move- to a compund where my greedy, deadbeat, extended relatives couldn't get past the guards. wink
  • Travel around, going to concerts all over the world headbang
  • Shop!! [img:$uid]http://i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh74/MissKayasha/Smileys/REGamblMoney01HL2.gif[/img:$uid]
  • Then I'd go back to teaching after about two years, because I love my job, and it would be so much better to do without the pressure of trying to make ends meet. nod

I know a guy that won a $125 million lottery. Great guy, he deserved it. And he's done well, too. First thing he did was go to the local Merrill Lynch office and get advice. He's still got most of the dough (it was about $36 million in a lump sum after taxes).

So, I'd do what he did. Get professional advice. But my advice would center around how to take possession of the money in the safest way, i.e. so idiots couldn't sue me for looking at them the wrong way. I guess I'd end up with $200 miilion or so in a trust or two. Then...

1. Give 10% to the church

2. Pay off every debt anyone in my family has

3. Fund college educations for every child in the family

4. Re-do my house

5. Buy a ranch

6. Buy a large office building (50% cash, 50% debt)

7. Buy a lot of gold and hide it somewhere safe

8. Buy some toys

9. Set up a couple charitable trusts

10. Do nice things for my friends

11. Invest the rest (probably $175 million or so) in a diversified portfolio

After all that, I'd get to work doing some things I've always wanted to do.

I’d set aside an amount for a comfortable but modest retirement for myself (commencing immediately), take care of family, do something for a few people who have been nice to me when they didn’t have to be nice to me, and give the rest to international charities.

I’d probably spend the rest of my life studying ants. I used to think I wanted to go back to school to study economics once I retired, but I’ve kinda become obsessed with ants in the last few years.

My coworker/friend and I went in on 6 tickets, so I'll get half of whatever amount we win.

Half of my share will be handed over to my bf to do as he sees fit. I'd never want money stuff to come between us and it seems the easiest way to ensure it doesn't for both of our sakes.

Then I'd divide up a bunch to family and friends, ensuring college funds/trusts for my nieces and nephews and several of my friends' children.

Then a bunch would go to charities, whatever catches my whimsy, but I lean towards causes that focus on women, the LGBT community & education/children.

Then I'd travel. For quite a while, probably.

I've never been one for "things" and I don't think a huge amount of money would change that, but I suppose you never know. I'd probably pay off and give my condo to my current renter, just as a random act of kindness. I'd go in w/the bf on a modest house or condo and maybe I'd finally buy a car. Maybe not, I'm really not fond of driving. I'd rather spend money on a car service.

And then I'd either look into starting a non-profit of some kind or just concentrate on volunteer work. I'm very interested in the plight of women and girls in Afghanistan, for example, and I wonder if I had more resources (or less responsibility here) what I might be able to do to help.

After taking a lump sum and paying the taxes on that, it probably would be about 225 million dollars. Yes, I am a nerd and I di the math on it. lol

I'd give each of my sisters 10 million dollars, Cousins, aunts and uncles 5 million, friends 1 million apiece, half a million to my favorite charity and relocate to another country.

I'd have a lot in investments and being a stockbroker myself, I don't have to pay someone else a ton of moeny to invest for me. dancing jig

The very 1st thing u need 2 do is protect your family.

Money changes EVERY THING, especailly if the public knows about it.

I played in two states. One state allows for total anonymity. For the other state I would form an LLC to protect myself.

Well, first I'd make sure I could take possession of the money safely (ie, losing as little of it as possible) and anonymously. And I'd get it invested as safely as possible.

Then, I'd make sure my family would never know want for the rest of their lives. I'd pay off my parents' house, make sure my sisters (especially my youngest sister) are taken care of, and set up trusts for my nephews and niece. (They wouldn't get the money until after they grow out of their stupid phases - which we all go through. lol )

I'd also set up a charitable foundation - probably something arts related. Most of the theatre groups I work with are 501(c)(3)s - so I'd like to help them retire their debts and put them on a solid footing.

I would quit my job and do exactly what I've always wanted to do - voiceover work. It wouldn't matter how much I made at it, because I wouldn't need the money. I'd also do more theatre.

I'd probably have several homes. One in Madison, for sure - and another someplace warm (so I could get out of Madison for the winter). And then, a couple more in places that are just fabulous, in general. (Paris, maybe.) I'd have a housekeeper in each residence, so I wouldn't have to worry when I wasn't there and it'd always be clean and ready when I wanted to go there. And I'd hire a private jet everywhere I went, so I'd never have to do airport security again.

I'd eat out a lot. I'd go all over the world, just to eat what's delicious.

And I'd play googobs of golf. In fact, I'd just play, in general.

Firstly, I would get some professional advice.

I would most likely take it as a lump sum, but not until after January 1, 2013 so I wouldn't have to claim it on my 2012 taxes. smile

Then I would give my notice at work.

Pay off my student loan, buy some property in various places, travel, set up a foundation and become a professional philanthropist.

The check. The string he dropped. The Mona Lisa. The musical notes taken out of a hat. The glass. The toy shotgun painting. The things he found. Therefore, everything seen–every object, that is, plus the process of looking at it–is a Duchamp.

I don't think I'd want a personal chef unless I was super busy with something else going on. I positively LOVE to cook, so I'd enjoy having days in a row of making menus and testing recipes and whatnot.

I'll take the personal trainer, though.

Another thing I thought of is that I'd probably finally consider having a child. Maybe even more than one (by foster or adoption). If I didn't have to work 40 hours a week to support myself and could stay home to care for my child it would dramatically change how I feel about it.

i would move back to brazil, there is so much i would do there. this is going to sound mean, but i wouldn't give any of the money to my family here in the united states. i would rather help my friends here in the united states, and help my husband's family in brazil.
