start my own business, probably open a bar.  also, i'd buy some things, give to some charities, etc.

I like the bar idea! Thumbs Up

      I'd like to get one of these three houses I bike by every day. Therey're $3-$4 million so it'd be a big amount but other than that I'd have no huge spending for quite some time.

        Bitter right-wing troll is bitter

        I guess you're used to being allowed to drone on and on with useless rants, huh?

        "Bitter right-wing troll is bitter"

        http://www.lotterypost.com/thread/236777/2215497 (Obvious troll is obvious).

        People should use different phraseology when they pretend to be somebody else.

          1. Pay off debts

          2. Get Hallux Rigidus surgery

          3. Never work again (not that I could get a job anyway due to my disabilities)

           

          As far as ludicrous spending goes I could see myself doing constant vacationing and buying a house or condo somewhere but that is all really.  I can never understand people who buy numerous cars unless they had numerous needs/uses.  For example I could see a person buy a sports car plus a van plus a truck.  But I can't see one person buy 50 sports cars and such.  I probably will be paying for my cousins' college but they have to earn it via good grades. 

          Aside from all of that anything goes.  I'm a spontaneous person so it helps to have money to be spontaneous when I want to be.

              I'd spend most of my winning on income properties. And I would buy a modest house. I wonder if I can write off my spending on income properties as a tax break, since they are business expenses. Beside that, I would lay low and buy a mini-van and a Honda CR-Z.

                  I can afford the socks and glasses and underwear now I just though what the heck would I do with all that money and decided that small purchases like those would cheer me up.  Plus getting out of debt is a no brainer.  But I like the lottery and now I only play mega millions and powerball.  But with the extra money from a jackpot win I could really play whatever game I wanted here in oregon.-weshar75

                          If I won the lottery which I'm confident I will, or one of my groups I run will, I would make a few changes. I would quit my job and maybe get back into real estate somewhat. (As an investor.) But I would do things in a cautious way. Keeping a low profile.. And I would definitly get back into my workout program. Health is imperative..Smile

                          Money is a terrible master, but a great servant...Smile
