If I won 100 million, I would go on LP and ask everyone what they would do if they won 100 million.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)

            This will be my first purchase.

            Be careful, that looks very much like the chairs they had in the Wall-E movie. They were so comfortable no one wanted leave them even by standing.

            I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

            The odds are about the same.

              I might buy an island.

              I remember watching an episode of cribs.  A show about rich lucky dumba$$es.

              And Richard Branson, was crapping on his island in this episode.  He even had a hot

              "pop" singer chick with him.  (If I remember correctly)

              So If I won 100 million dollars, the first thing I would  is  buy a secluded island to crap on and a hot singer chick to serenade

              that crap.  After that deep movement I will rent a Thailand crabbing boat, and we all can go crabbing and shrimping!!

              But from experience, don't endeavor to eat the shrimp with visible crap.

              It was Mariah Carey. Don't wish for her, she's too high maintenance.

              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

              The odds are about the same.

                First I would thank GoD and donate money to the church. Than I would leave with my kids to Disney World spend two weeks than come back and and deal with all the things I have to deal with after you win.

                    I bought a lotto max ticket, for tonight in Canada.. The jackpot is up to $26 million, I think, I am not quite sure!

                     

                    I was unsure where to buy the ticket,  at a grocery store or at a pharmacy, drug store! So, i purchased it at the drug store.. And after i bought it, questioned, myself, whether, it was a good decision or not?!

                     

                    If I won alot of money, I'd buy a house, and maybe adopt some animal's..And donate to animal shelter's and different place's as well!

                      In my opinion I doubt where you buy your ticket matters.  Its getting the right numbers.

                      Good plans, adopt a few pets and donate to animal shelters.  I wish you the best of luck on winning!  $26 million would be great, especially winning in Canada, you dont have to pay ANY taxes.

                          Thank you lejardin, I want to move out of where I live too. I need a change of scenery, very much. It is great that we don't have to pay taxes on the Canada lottery.

                          Hope you win the money you want and need as well!

                            Sounds like a plan and very similar to what I would do...except I don't have a "War Dept." in my cabinet. (just some old spices and such and an ancient bottle of Courvoisier )  I also don't have a mortgage and my old shack ain't worth putting 10 grand into it, so I will buy my small ranch with live water and ponds (one example) I've always wanted, the first thing I would buy.   I'd like to have about 25 females live on my ranch with me...I'm sure they'd "flock" to me since I had all that money.

                            One good thing about being married (not that there aren't other good things) is that you and the missus can give someone $28k/yr. tax free.   I don't have children*, so I would want to give some money to my nieces and nephews and their families.   There's 14 of them, though, and that would total  $196k/yr., not counting a few other people I'd want to help out.  Still, with no wife or kids to "help" me spend my new-found fortune, I could keep that up for quite a few years, prob. through the rest of my life.

                            There's not many "toys" I'd want - I have always wanted a BMW and would love to have a Ural sidecar motorcycle. (I'm a little too old to be layin' down a Harley)   I'd probably also keep the UPS driver busy, what with many deliveries from Amazon and other mail order companies.

                            *I don't have children because a long time ago the doctor advised me to not have any. 

                            I'm too small in the hips.

                              Candy-Lane,   You plan on not telling any of your underage household members. But you say you will hold a party for the rest of your household members. How can you keep it a secret from your young ones when there is a party happening where the children live ? All it takes is for one person talking to them . 

                                Good Luck !!!

                              Hi Music,

                              How can I keep it a secret from any young children that may reside in my home? Easy. The grownups in my home...we're tight! I don't have to worry, they wouldn't tell another living soul. We would never speak about it. We wouldn't have to.

                              And as for any underage wondering "what are we celebrating?"  We could turn it into an end of summer celebration,  Halloween, or Thanksgiving or, nothing at all. Some people in my household don't need or ask why we are all hanging out having fun together in party mode. - They are happy to go with the flow!

                              Thanks for asking and good luck to you too!
