          I would not invest in the stock market thats for sure! would put it in several different banks

          give some to my family.  I would stay in my townhouse wouldn't go for a big fancy house

          travel alittle, buy a couple bldgs, rent them out for social events. Would love to have one

          for battered women and children or even for the homeless!

            I have been hooked watching the HGTV channel and it got me thinking. If and when I win the jackpot, I would invest in some income properties. That's where a large portion of where the money would go to. I believe that is one of the safest inventments right now because you get a monthly income from your tenents and you make your money back.

            Another question that I want to put out there is: Where should you put your money initially?

              Some of you people who say "off shore account" have way more ballz then I could ever have. I would need to be able to drive to "THE BANK" in no more then a few hours. Just in case the dollar totally crashes and I need to burn down a physical building to blow off some steam...Some how smashing a computer just wouldn't be the same...One thing is for sure. If I hit it really big, then in my bomb shelter built by my own hands deep beneath my above average home will be a stash of gold bars...(and not the ones going around filled with cheap metal).

                    Here's the scenario: You just hit the big jackpot of over $2 million after taxes. What will you do to make sure your money is safe?

                    Oh....I don't know.....I have no Idea whatsoever.

                    Maybe I'll burn it inside a fire pit at the beach. A big ol Bonfire.

                    Burn baby Burn !

                          i dont trust dollar atm or any Currencies of any kind!

                          THEY are endless pits of debt and made out of thin air with no real worth backing it

                          , other then what humans feels its worth day by day

                           

                          also into  high Div & Yield stocks, one where your not intrested IN reselling it for a larger profit

                          but one where you are really a part owner that gets a share of the profits!
                          a company to own, not buy low and sell high idiotic thinking that is the current  stock market

                          if the market does up and down, i could care less long as my dividend check keeps coming!
