    I've posted this before on another thread.I'd buy a motorhome with a "garage" on it & travel.I'd use the "garage" to carry emergency supplies.When I hear of a natural disaster,like the tornado last night in Atlanta,that was near wherever I might be,I would drive to the disaster area and hand out the supplys to those that need it.Afterwards,I'd load up some more supplys and be ready for the next disaster that occurs near my travels.This way I could see the country and help people at the same time.

      Does share with "others" include my family? I have 8 siblings. They'd suck up a lot of my winnings. I'd share with them...but not too much.

      Not a winner yet. But I will be!

            I plan of giving some to my immediate family. Mainly my mom and sisters.

                Ah, the usual 'what would you do' poll.

                Your poll doesn't make sense to me because the first answer is 'share', but aren't all the possible answers after 'stingy' also sharing ?

                You are pretty much forced to 'share' just because of the tax ramifications.

                  Not I, I'm not giving money away.  If I give, they'll just keep wanting more.  Nobody gets any of my winnings.

                    Not only would I not share with anyone (including mother), I would not tell anyone.

                      I have an uncle that would get about half of mine.

                        I have a small family so it will be easy to share.

                            Agreed.

                            You must be related to me and have the same family I do.
