Alright, so if you were to win $50+ million after taxes and you could only put that money toward one thing for an entire year, what would that be?

I already know my answer but I'm gonna let y'all answer first. The things than come to mind for the most popular are house, car, vacation and debt.

      Buy everybody in the Mystical Forum their own dream book!

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          No matter how much I might win or how long I might live, I will only spend lottery winnings (or any other windfall) on one thing. I'll spend it on keeping myself happy.

              Yea I know there are threads where people mention the first thing they would do, but that's a bit different. It's not about only beng able to spend money on one thing for one year, it's simply what you would do.

              The first thing I would do upon winning is buy a new car since mine is 14 years old (still runs good though). My first priority though is something different. Given the option to spend money on only one thing for an entire year it would be towards my mothers health or at least setting her up with a nice house if money couldn't help her (has very bad lung problems as well as stroke issues).

              Wanted to ask this because I know there are those threads about what to spend the money on but not really any about what's the most important of those things. Yea they're somewhat the same but I think this is a more thought provoking thread.

                The one thing for an entire year would be private school for all of my children.

                This includes finding a school that specializes in teaching special needs children with the expectation that my special needs kids will be properly taught and fit in with their peers.

                The following year would be something else from my list of things to do.
