what would you do?

I don't think I'd do anything more than what I'd normally do. Probably play some warcraft 3 on a faster PC. But thats about it.

edit: paying bills is a given. :)

And fire automatic weapons at the beer cans set up on the fence in back of the swimming pool that full of blondes, brunettes and redheads.

I would walk in to work and give my boss a huge <strongbad voice> Ddouble-Deuce! </strongbad voice>, then leave.

Then I'd buy a house, buy a new car, move all my crap into my newly furnished house, pay for college, and buy one freaking huge plasma TV.

1.) Find some toilet paper to clean up the mess.
2.) Take a shower
3.) Go to local Porsche dealership and buy a 911 Turbo (I'd get a 360 Modena if I didn't have to drive 2 hours to get it.)
4.) Go to work as normal - park in no parking zone @ end of parking lot where everyone can see my new toy - pay guard not to have car towed.
5.) Listen to all the people asking "Who's car is that?" in the hallway. :D

And that's all before lunch. ;)

Find everyone I dislike and tell them to go f-ck themselves. Then immediately drive to lottery headquarters using the shoulder the entire time. Probably take half and spend on cars, and house. Then invest the rest so I cna live off the interest...

I'd pay all the porn stars over the years I've found attractive and invite them back to my new big-ass house to have a weeklong orgy. Then, after they've left, buy everything I ever wanted.

Hey, at least I'm honest.

That's a very good idea but I thought they put the winners in the paper.

Pay off the last of my bills, buy a nice piece of land and build my house and racetrack on it, buy my mom a house. I would also pay for my nephews college and buy him a house wherever he finds a job. My sister wouldn't get crap until she learns how to be responsible with money again. My uncle would get a house for him and his two sons as long as he leaves the bitch he is married to. After that I would just live a casual lifestyle.

If I'd gotten the $141 mil lump sum payout, figuring $80 mil after taxes...

Put $79 million into mutual funds. Finance a few cars, houses, etc for myself (counting on making more interest in the stock market than I'll pay on the financing) & use the interest off the $79 million to buy rental properties.

I'd use the $1 mil in cash to pay off my parents mortgage, my debt, gift the maximum tax free amount ($10K?) to a bunch of family & friends, pay off their respective debts (my sister's school loans), start a college fund for my brother, hire my parents to some pointless job with no responsibilities, & spend a few evenings leaving $1000 tips for cute waitresses.

mutual funds is at an all time low at the moment......better spend that money purchasing & developing some properties, or donate it to charities.
