    Okay, Autobot!  Ya got a $400K car.  WHERE are you going to keep it?  In the parking lot?  I don't think so.  Don't leave us hanging, complete your fantasy!  More like:  I'll get the Saleen S7 and an army of full-time armed guards to watch it when I'm not driving it....

        Oh yeah.  And for me, I'll probably buy a small island in the pacific or caribbean.  (Let's see you put the "keys" in my island and drive away with it!)

          do you think any state troopers running radar on the interstate highway might notice that one going by? ...or maybe it would just blend in with the other traffic ;)

            I would buy a nicer house than one I live in and probably a fully loaded Lincoln Navigator with nice tire and rims package.

                I would not buy anything crazy.  The only crazy thing I would do is bicycle across the USA.

                Hasn't anyone EVER heard of being generous (to a point)?



                Why not give some to a worthy charity, besides yourself?

                  I wouldnt spent a cent in luxurious items or 5 star hotels. I would like a lotus espirit though. Sure love to give some away to researchers who can make good use of it, not stupid charities.

                    I would treat myself to a 4-star hotel with all the trimmings.  Often, I watch how the rich and the famous savor the smorgasbord of lavish treats bestowed upon them -- and it's all about the $$$$. 

                    Finally, to Timmer692002. Those charities should play the lottery because just like we dream, they can too: all they need is a $1.00 and a dream.  I'm not saying that I won't donate to my favorite charity, but everyone expects something $$$ from someone, don't they, especially the big lottery winners (makes you wonder, huh?)

                        My answer may shock everyone.  I would go to my ex girlfriend and beg her to let me buy her son (I love him with all my heart and he has been diagnosed by a child psychologist as being a high genious and told that he needs to be in a private school but there is no way his mom or grandparents can afford that) the best education that money can buy.  I would then try to make my exgf my again gf and dventually my wife.  I would - DEFINATELY - try to get her to let me put her son through the best of private schools though.

                              i would make the owner of my work an offer for the bsness just so i could fire my boss (PA is an at-will employment state).

                              I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.
