        Since today is my birthday I will save everyone here at LP the trouble of picking up a Mega Millions ticket for tonight's drawing. I have decided that today is a good day to win and already have a financial team in place. Wink  Oh wait a minute.....although today is indeed my B-day it is time to face reality and realize that although I would love to win the Mega Millions tonite it probally won't happen. Time to go back to taking my nap. Good luck everyone and keep on playing. Remember you have to be "In it 2 win it!"

          My plan is still to get a place in New York... so a house. Then since I likely won't get a car it'd be a crazy custom built top of the line PC.

                 I also want peace and  quiet with no neighbors whatsoever

                that's what living in a apartment complex does to you

                mainly I want a mountaintop Fortress as I would not have to worry about neighbors

                that way I can sure live inside the city area

                the only thing they have not yet done is  built a house on every freaking hilltop

                I would also want a five-story house like steel constructed

                that way I have like the largest house on the largest hilltop  I can purchase and I can see everything for miles and miles

                as tall as they would allow you to without having to put darn red blinking light the radio towers have on top

                just so some idiotic pilot will not run into your building

                 

                in all of the roof to be made of glass so I can just look up on stars at night

                however the bedroom would have to be covered just because the whole spy satellites can spot a freaky ladybug on a tree leaf

                No bees, no honey.

                    Funny. I voted "other" because that's what I was thinking. Buy someplace out in the middle of nowhere to be by myself with the wife and family when the country finally goes straight to hell.

                    I Agree!

                      I would also buy property out in the middle of nowhere to get away from people. Then I would buy an RV and travel. Would be so wonderful.

                            I would do the logical jackpot lottery winner move of purchasing a high end luxury car as soon as the cash hits my account.  Then shortly thereafter, I would plan a nice vacation to some place outside the US, of course, flying first class, staying in 5 star accommodations, and completely replacing my entire wardrobe before, during and after that vacation (i.e. I would leave home with very few clothes and purchase nice items along the way; so no I would not be going on vacation in Jamaica, Mexico, or Thailand).  UK would be first stop, and preferrably I would fly there on either an Airbus A380 or Dreamliner 787, but I would take flying on either a Boeing 777 or 767.  Yes, I love to fly!

                            Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              10 mill... Let me see....

                              First I would buy the house and pay off every bill that I owe then I  would check to see what the mortgage and expenses would be for 5 years ----- Put that in the bank and gain interest.

                              Then I would have a 1 million dollar blow out just for me ( vegas, drinking, traveling the whole 9). After working all the years that I have and dealing with the issues of daily life I think I

                              deserve that, plus I would have 8 mill left anyway... Then I would do the charity good will thingy.

                               

                              But I will take care of myself first....

                              This thread better be about 10mill after tax....lmao
