Wow. To each their own, I suppose, but rest assured my children would get the bulk of a JP winner like this passed down to them in some form...a trust, whatever.

Yes, there'd be a large chuck for various charities, a helping hand for local businesses and services, etc. There's plenty in a JP this size to go around.

But just $100,000 to each kid and the rest to people/faceless organizations you don't know?

That's certifiably insane, in my humble opinion.

I Agree!  Most charities and churches are scams anyway. Many non-profit CEOs are making for-profit CEO pay and churches are the biggest scams. I am a Christian, but I disagree that millions of dollars should be poured into buildings and that pastors are paid CEO like pay.  If I lacked integrity, I would become a pastor and start a church and become rich...or I would start a non-profit and pay myself a six figure salary.  No I would leave much of my assets to my blood heirs...my sons.

Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

    I'd be very generous to local services where I live---police, fire, libraries, schools, playgrounds. New equipment, facilities, building updates. Tangible stuff everyone can benefit from and can see the results of.

          Good for him.  He is 80 and can enjoy the rest of his life FULL!  Bet he never thought this would happen while working at a school.  You just never know.  Luck has to land on someone.  Hope he sees the world on his private jet.  At 80, he probably feels like 50 now.  Money can do that.
