Whats the point of having more money than God if you can't enjoy it?I'm going to buy toys that I only dreamed about owning as a working class guy.If I win the Powerballs $275,000,000 and take the cash option of something over $100,000,000 before taxes,I can't live long enough to spend it all.To hell with living off of the interest,I'm going to enjoy myself to the max!

    The joy of winning a large sum would not be to blow it recklessly on fast cars and faster women, who would disappear when the money runs out, or run off with it.

    I think it would be more fun, and much more rewarding both personally and financially, the use the win the build a business. What kind of business or investment would you start?

    I don't know man, I do have a youthful mentally, and although i'm not really into cars that much, faster women dont really sound that bad.

     

    Obviously I would continue doing what I currently do (residential and commercial investment real estate). But at the rate im going even without the lottery win, in a couple years I will already be well off, so i guess i dont really need to play the lottery, but like someone has said already, money won is twice as good as money earned. 

    If I won I'll just build on my business.
