I would do the Kmart thing at Christmas time...did it for one person this past year.  It was fun to be anonymous also. But this time, it would be on a grander scale.

    Instead of infroming family and friends of winning it may be interesting to mail annonymously large sums of cash to them and watch what they do with it.

    I may even find humor in watching them try to figure where it came from.

    May You Prosper and be in Health!

      I love this one. Cross-country on a bus. Alone to reflect. Perfect.

        I would buy an old ice-cream truck (like the ones that run around the neighborhood)and fill it up with ice-cream bars,cups etc,and give them away to the little kids that stand by the curb wanting ice-cream but have no money to get any.....Reminds me of my childhood...

        I might have wandered but i'm not lost!!

          I'd spend money on those dumb Farmville type games on Google and Facebook. It would be something I wouldn't do otherwise and so for me would just really make it sink it that I have a ridiculous amount of money.

            One that would be vetoed by my family and financial advisor: there is a radio station I love that is struggling. They let the overnight staff go, got rid of some remote transmitters, and have to charge for online streaming. I'd love to give them enough to get back to full strength for several years.

            It's silly. Only if there was an astronomical jackpot or a second windfall from an investment.

                    I would donate $125,000,000 USD to top rated secular tax deductible

                    qualified charities before the end of this year, thereby offsetting

                    pretty much dollar for dollar, the 35% federal tax paid or due.

                      I would renovate my house only to move into a rental apartment.  I would make traveling my new "job".  I would change my name.  I would buy an island.  I would get divorced, become a Muslim and marry 4 wives.  Can anyone top that for odd?!

                      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!

                        What? I hope you are aware there is a cap on how much you can deduct through donations...you might want to consult an accountant before you make such a foolhardy move.  I would never donate merely for the tax savings since for every dollar you donate, you only save 35 cents.  I would be happy with the other 65 cents per dollar still in my pocket.

                        Call me stupid, but I think you might want to look in the mirror and say that!

                            Hope you plan on putting up bullet proof glass as you would become a target.  And what is the fun in that?  I would much rather be chillin' in a lear jet or in first-class on name your airline, riding around in luxury cars, and visiting nice and interesting places.  I would not take up dangerous activities until my last days.  But sit behind a counter of a store and scratch tickets all day?  You might want to call into your state lottery gambling help line if that is your idea of fun!  Lawd have mercy!

                              So your good luck would have enabled you to win this mondo millions jackpot, but wouldn't it just be your luck to get on a greyhound bus that is packed full of misfits and that catches on fire out in the middle of nowhere!  No thank you...I would fly first-class and I wouldn't tell a soul beside my brother.  I wouldn't tell my mom, my other brothers or any of my other family and friends.  I wouldn't even tell my wife though she would eventually figure it out....perhaps.  But I have such a great cover that even she might be still clueless after the big win.
