Since I'm nearsighted, I first thought I'd get Lasik surgery, but if they botched it, I don't think I could buy a new set of eyes no matter how much money I had.

No, I think I'll just have all the windshields of my new cars ground to my prescription.

The bad news is that no one else would be able to drive them, but the good news is they'd be so thick that they'd be bullet proof.

    The Game of Thrones pinball is high on my list. Also the relaunched Spiderman table from Stern.

    How about classics like Haunted House or EarthShaker or EightBall Deluxe or Blacknight!

    FunHouse is, to this day, the only machine I have ever stomped into the dust. I rolled the sucker and found out that once it goes past zeros again it wont give you the high score unless you roll it and go passed the top one.   I shot it into the Clown 27 times in a row!

       I like Funhouse and Eightball deluxe, Black Knight is a real good game but hard to master, the ball drains fast. Classics has its charm but I would like to have one of the modern games, hard to fix older games and find spare parts. Going to compete tomorrow, been a while since.

                A big truck.....

                 

                So I'd have a way to carry all the other crap I'd be buying back to the house :)

                  Now that is an honest answer lol.

                  Oh and after my little trip it would be a new car and residence in another state.  There are two I have my eye on. Wink

                      I would buy a house in the country.

                      I have some ideas, but I gotta win a jackpot before I can spend it.

                        If I won or split the $449 million for this Tuesday's drawing I'd lay low from the general public and live like a cheapskate like on the show from TLC.

                              First thing I would buy with $449 million bucks would be new shirts since my old ones are getting a little worn down.  Then a couple of wrangler jeans and some slacks from the big and tall store.  New shoes from famous footwear and for now that would be a good start.-weshar75
