I don't want much for myself; just a house or two (w/ a pool), a Challenger, and a new wardrobe worth at most $2000...which isn't really that much lol.

      Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

        We think alike uk, we can never win enough! Maybe after winning $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00 we may consider retiring?     Roll Eyes

            I love these threads...keep 'em coming.Banana

             

            If I won MM on Tuesday, first thing on my list would be to pay off my student loans. 

            Second would be to buy a house.  Nice 4 bedroom with a pool and lots of outdoor space. 

            I'd buy two cars, an SUV for winter and a two-door/coup that I can drive during the summer.

            After that, then I'd figure out how much I'd want to give to my family and friends.  I'd buy my sister a house and set up a college fund/trust for my nieces and nephews. 

            Then I'd sit down and decide what charities I want to donate to.

            And finally I'd go back to school.  Get my masters or law degree...and I'd pay full tuition since I could afford it and wouldn't want to take financial aid away from people who actually need it.

              after you get your law degree, if you want you can specialize in helping lottery winners.

              afterall you'll have intimate expierence in this area. LOL

                Not much in the first few years: Finish the mortgage on the current house, have a housekeeper come by once a week, get massages once a week, and sit on the rest for a year or so while trying to figure it all out.

                My wife says she would get a degree in Non profit management.

                  I would get out of debt first then buy my mother, sister and husband new vehicles.  I set a limit at $50,000 for each vehicle.  Then I would like to travel to hawaii never been there and my friend was born there.  Take a trip around the islands and see the sights would be fun.  I would also like to see the grand canyon in person and crater lake here in Oregon.  Just the ablity to travel would be enjoyable and be able to take your time with it.-weshar75

                    I would have to add a few short trips as well.  I always wanted to see the buffalo at Yellowstone and the 1000 plus year old redwoods in California.  And maybe a trip to Alaska.

                      Just a small farm that is big enough to provide for the family and friends Or maybe my own Mountain....  Then I would have the funds to start a greenhouse to sell plants.    it is great to have a dream.

                        Having your own mountain is nice.

                        You can see visitors coming from a long ways off.

                        And throw rocks down at them.

                             I am surprised that rdgrnr didn't mention some automated turret system. I am not a people person either but I guess I am a bit more diplomatic. Green laugh

                              If you won, what would you buy?

                              Easter Island.

                              I don't know why.

                              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.
