I hear alot of people talking about a 1 billion dollar mega millions pot.  But, what would make you happy, how much money would make you happy?  Me, after giving my family money, I would be happy with 10 millions dollars to retire on.

10,000,000 - 3,000,000 dollar house = 7,000,000

cars, house stuff ($300,000), house taxes per/year ($1,230,000) - 7,000,000 = 5,470,000 

$5,470,000 / 41 years = $133,415.00 a year budget with hardly no bills.  Would this make you happy or would you need more?

      I Agree! Yep

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

            You'll have to lower your price. Crackheads will do that for 100.

              I'm happy when I win more than I bet.

              Anything on top of that is gravy.

              And I like gravy.

              I consider it a beverage.

                  Yes, $10 million would make me very happy.  I'd buy a cheaper house though and spend lots on travel.  It depends on where you live but around here, a house for $1.25 million is pretty posh - more than good enough for me.  I'd want a nice powerboat moored in the saltwater canal in the back of my property.  Again, nothing too massive.  The bigger everything is, the higher the cost of upkeep and the key for me is to not create a lifestyle that costs a lot to finance, thereby decreasing the income too quickly.

                            You are right Number19king, I was taught at an early age about what to do with the money that I made and today I have no bills, just insurance, pg&e and other miner home bills. But, having more money in the bank would increase my happiness.  Always budget, no matter how much money you have.
