The thing is this is a bit of a falicy. The problem is the 'common' lotteries in the US are only enough to make your life better, not extravagant.

Now if I hit a big one (slightly altered from YooYoo's list)

- Pay off debt
- Share money with friends and family
Take a year off of work to:
- Go to favorite travel agent from my days supporting Amadeus, buy first class tickets (Air AND Cruise) around the world
- Build new houses
- Buy new cars
- Book trip to ISS for a week in Soyuz
more to come.

First, I'd buy one of those islands that looks like a country in the U.A.E. Then I would claim to have found oil under it and:
1:sell it to oil greedy people
or
2:be bombed by oil greedy people

Then:
I'd have a bucket of Popeye's Spicy legs with Ted
I'd pay for COrulez's fat surgery so we wouldn't have to hear about it anymore.
I'd produce a magazine like "Lowriders" where sluts pose with planes.
I'd buy a few A.netters a pair of balls. (not collectively. A pair for each, of course)
I'd sponsor free trips so that all of the A.netters that have ever said, "If I ever see you, I'm gonna kick your ass," can own up. There's gonna be a few trips to Canada, for sure, eh.

Peter Gibbons: Our high school guidance counselor used to ask us what you'd do if you had a million dollars and you didn't have to work. And invariably what you'd say was supposed to be your career. So, if you wanted to fix old cars you're supposed to be an auto mechanic.
Samir: So what did you say?
Peter Gibbons: I never had an answer. I guess that's why I'm working at Initech.
Michael Bolton: No, you're working at Initech because that question is bullshit to begin with. If everyone listened to her, there'd be no janitors, because no one would clean shit up if they had a million dollars.

Nice replies!

I'd finish off my time at college and apply for the job i want. I'd take loadsa driving lessons and pass driving as quickly as possible. Then buy a nice car, Honda Civic Type-R? Seat Leon Cupra R?

If i got the job, id start the training and work, say, 10 years? Just to say i have worked! Id also move out and buy a house locally with some of my closest friends, would be a right laugh!

And go on holiday, obviously  Wink

You're just setting yourself up for some obvious jokes at your expense, not only from the 10 hookers, but from members of A.net as well....


1. Buy myself a place. Nothing to big and fancy something that suits me in terms of size. I don't need a multimillion dollar mansion or penthouse apartment. I would pay off the houses of several of my family members and buy new houses some of my family as well. I'd probably buy a weekend retreat up in the mountains somewhere as well.

2. Cars. I buy myself a couple of cars, nothing really over the top, so no exotics. I would also buy new cars (or pay off their current one) for members of my family

3. Trips. The first trip would obviously be to Las Vegas. I'd take a trip to Europe, perhaps spending several months exploring the place. Then a month or two in Australia and New Zealand. From there, who knows where I'd go next.

4. Investing. I'd probably invest between 25-40% of the money, perhaps in the stock market, in real estate, and if the amount of money I would win was sizable enough, perhaps invest in a sports team.

I bought a $1 lottery ticket for tonight's drawing. I probably would not check the results right away.

Tonight's prize (Ohio Mega Millions): $200 million

here are my auto pick numbers:

14 18 22 42 43 +07

If I happen to win $200 million, I will just SCREAM! And think about nothing. Haha.

Seriously, I would build a new small private institution school for deaf young kids. Limit 40 kids per school year. Hire specialized education teachers and teach kids.

In the USA, due to 'sunshine' laws, one cannot hide their name or hometown from public access.
In order if I won big, after recovering from the shock:
Not tell anyone - even my mom - until I contact a lawyer.
Contact a lawyer experienced with those whom had won big lottery prizes and make a will, financial arrangments to make sure the taxes got paid, and how I would handle my payment in a secure and proper way and how to gift money to family members.
Contact all of credit agencies and notify them that I need to be notified before anyone accesses my info.
Change my home phone number.
Make reservations in a higher level hotel in a nearby area for a couple of weeks.
Then tell family - Go claim my prize - Process the check.
Give some gift monies to parents, brothers
Tell my employer I quit, and to make arrangements to buy into health insurance via them (under laws allowing up to 2 years) and for my retirement/401(k) monies transfers
After a month or 2, then travel for a month and spend several months in the 1st year all around the USA and the world.
Maybe buy a modest new car (had my eyes on a Mazda 6 a few months ago)
Buy a modest house or condo/townhome near where I live, spend some time fixing it up.
After a year or 2, maybe buy a small business to keep me out of trouble.

By the way, the recent winning ticket in the Big Game with a Annunity prize of $250 Million, was sold at a store in a town about 2 miles from me, in Rutherford, NJ. Of course, it wasn't me.
