The first thing I'd do is go heavily into debt. Temporarily, but heavily. Before I even claimed that ticket, I'd sign it, stash it somewhere safe, then borrow about $2m from one of my two rich trustworthy friends. Then I'd use that money to buy a house far, far, far away, and I'd move myself, my mother, her three dogs, my three cats, and our six goats out of our current place under cover of night. Only then would I claim the ticket. We live in a bad place, y'all. No way am I claiming that ticket while we're still here.

    Rent a limo, buy four dozen roses, of four different colors, drive up to a pretty woman, give her the roses. act like a gentleman, let her know she is the most important person for that moment in time, and she will be putty.  Respect, attention, sincerity, and MONEY will get you more then a whorehouse will ever provide.  A whore house is made for those who can't compete - or are married.

    Oh, man, you had me going for a second. The first part sounds so great--that's exactly how a woman wants to be treated! But then the "and she will be putty" part. Oh. Boo. You mean you'd get her to believe you think she's great, just so you can sleep with her? Boo. It's far nicer and more humane to just pay a hooker for sex, if that's what you want, than it is to lull a woman into thinking you really think she's wonderful and that you care for her or are interested in her. Actually, doing that to a woman is really really cruel--whether you have $365 million or $3.65 in your bank account. But the first part did sound good.

          A guy drives up to a pretty women, in a limo, offers flowers and throws compliments, and she jumps in and says, go for it?  If she is that easy with a stranger, who's fault is that?  The only reason I would kick her out of bed, is because there is more room on the floor.  Besides, I would promise to respect her in the morning.  What happens in the bedroom stays in the bedroom; until the guys get together.  Then we gossip - just like women.

          Besides, most "pretty women" have been around the block and know the rules.  They have had men doing their bidding for years.  The really pretty women have been there before and have a T-Shirt to prove it.  They learn it before they know the value of it.  They smile.  They flirt. They wear minimum clothes.  They have an agenda.   It is nature at its best.  It came with the equality ammendment.

          Cheers

                  Then you'd be too intelligent to fall for a con man.  Good for you!  I see bars full of the opposite.  Drunk, on drugs, or a combination, and expecting respect.  I see woman at work, looking for the opportunity to be nice to a yound vice-president; hoping they'll find a meal ticket.  In the 21st century, there is no reason to be easy.

                    thanks. I just see no reasson for a lady OR  a man to sell them self low.  I guess some ladies really enjoy doing it and thats ok for them I guess. Just not for me.

                      Chewie, I have no problem with the concept that materialistic, gold-digging women "get what they deserve" if they'll jump in the hay in an effort to con you out of something. just because she/he thinks she/he can get something out of you. But let's be honest here: In your scenario, it's the MAN who is doing the conning; the woman is just falling for it (and she may not be falling for the whole "I'm rich" impression, but for the idea that she actually, finally, found a truly nice wonderful gentleman who's actually interested in her.) Also, in your post you ASSUMED she would do that: "throw her some flowers and act like a gentleman, and she'll be putty in your hands." So does that mean you assume that all women are money hungry, and that all women have no self-respect? Even if that were true, which it certainly isn't, do you believe that it's OK to trample all over people if they don't stick up for themselves? Like, if somebody doesn't FORCE you to be a decent human being, that entitles you act like some kind of sociopath? (Not YOU you. I'm just posing a hypothetical.) The point I was trying to make is that, if sex is all you're after, why not just be honest about it and pay the money for a professional. Why choose to con some woman who is gullible enough to believe that you're actually the nice guy you pretend to be, and that you're actually interested in her? I'd say that men who choose to do that are NOT really in it for the sex, actually. I'd say they do it because of some deep-seated fear or hatred of women, as well as a need to feel superior to them and to punish them for whatever imaginary wrongs the entire female race has foisted upon the man (or men in general).

                        Mooshie has a very valid point.

                        But to answer the question posed at the beginning of this thread...what would you (I) do with 365 million?  One word:

                        Disappear!

                        At least from public view and at least for a while.  And what would I do while I was disappearing?  I don't know...maybe count my money.  Three hundred, sixty four million, two hundred, ninety five thousand, six hundred and forty two dollars...three hundred sixty four million, two hundred ninety five thousand, six hundred and forty three dollars...three hundred sixty four million, two hundred niney five thousand, six hundred and forty...DAMN!  An interest payment!  Now I have to start all over.  One dollar...two dollars...three dollars....

                          Whoa!  I missed this one, but this quote "The point I was trying to make is that, if sex is all you're after, why not just be honest about it and pay the money for a professional. Why choose to con some woman who is gullible enough to believe that you're actually the nice guy you pretend to be, and that you're actually interested in her?

I Agree!sums it up for male, female, and ginger ale!  Sad thing is, the other side of that coin is women have this about the entire male race.  Vicious cycle---the damaged keep damaging.  Run real fast in the other direction when you see 'em coming!

                              I'm not sure what fear or hatred of either sex has to do with anything.  It is sex, nothing more, nothing less.  Not every thing has to have a second or third motive.  Because you enjoy sex, and your pardner enjoys sex, doesn't make either of you a psycopath or require psycoanalsis.  Two consenting adults enjoying each others body.  Happens a billion times a day, the world over.  I can sleep with a woman, respect her, and never see her again.  She probably had the same thought.  Not everything is about her, some times it is about me, and some times it is about both of us.  Spend some time in a tourist city, like Honolulu or Las Vegas.  People go there  and do what they would never do in their home town.  Self-respect has nothing to do with it.  They are adults, acting like adults.  People can enjoy each others bodies without a lifelong commitment, or even a 24-hour commitment.  No deep routed fear or desire to screw my mother!  I didn't respresent her father either.  Two people, the chemicals flowing, and doing what comes naturally to two healthy people.  No woman ever committed suicide because I wasn't the knight in shining armor!  Some times, I was the one being had.  Stranglely enough, I was able to accept it!

                              If any one has a problem, it appears to be you.  You want to judge every one by your standards; based on something you've read sitting alone in your bed.  You want the flowers and sweet talk - and a lifelong commitment.  Not getting is bad, and causes you to suspect the worst in people.  If some one wants to screw you, it is considered trampling, not enjoyable.  If some one doesn't play by your repressed standards, they are not a decent human being.  Unless it is a lifelong commitment, a whore is better.  Bulldung!  This is the 21 Century!  Sex in the dark is no longer the only way it can happen, and it doesn't have to intolerable.  It was made to be good, not just for reproduction.  Turn the lights on, and find the good spots.  Not every sexual encounter has to be "making love", just plain getting laid is a goal - for men and women!  Most of the women I date are smarter then a bean-bag, and none are afraid of life.  Try it some time.

                              Cheers
