Of the $30+ million I would actually see, I would (in no particular order)

- Invest $10 million
- buy a house
- buy a car
- Give each family member (extended included) $50,000

First of all it's not 80 milions!
It's 42 if you want to take your money instanly!
80milions are paid of in 30 years!!!!!!That's right 30 years!
42 - 50% tax and you're left with 21milions still enough to buy a small house in the bay area!

Buy a few hundred acres, build a log house (with modern amenities, just logs outside 'cause it's cool & Sarah likes it), build a 30 car garage, buy a Viper Venom, buy a Ferrari 355 F1, 456 M, 360 Spider, & an F50 for good measure. Get married, & then live off the interest on the remainder of the money.

After I had taken care of all the practicalities, I would buy some acreage in the country and set up a kennel for abandoned pets.

No kidding... It's been my "lottery dream" for ages.

Isla, you are so kind! :)

I think I would buy a horse ranch on a winery in Northern California, give my two sisters and my Mom enough money for them to be happy for the rest of their lives and fund my nieces' college educations. The rest I would invest. :)

LOL, Ariel...

As a child, I actually used to pray to God that I would be rich one day so that I could have an animal sanctuary! I'm a little miffed that my prayers have not yet been answered. :D

A horse farm in wine country....

Can I come visit? :)

First I would tell all those whining members I have to deal with at work what they need to hear. I would then buy a large piece of land with a lot of trees. I would build a tuning shop so I could have some fun. I would also buy my mom and my sister a house so they don't have to worry about it ever again. My nephew would show up to school next year driving a real bad ass car.

I would quit my job so fast that the vacuum of me leaving the office would implode my Boss's skull ;)

1. Get a lawyer, an accountant, and a stock broker.

2. Either quit outright or do such a piss poor job at work that they had to fire me -- would depend on how vengeful I was that day.

3. Pay off my f***ing law school loans then dangle a million dollars in front of my alma mater. Then tell them to f*** themselves because they already have all the money they'll get from me. :D

4. Get rid of my 11 year old car by driving it off of some cliff (well, I won't be in it at the time). Then buy the cliff just because I can.

5. Build a dream house by the water somewhere. Build airstrip or helipad or both. Hell, put a damn radar system in for bragging rights. Lights -- gotta have runway lights.

6. Follow Viper's plan -- live off the interest from my portfolio and play with about $1 million in risky investments.

Isla,
You could visit anytime!

Although I don't see it happening - I live on Maui and we have no lotteries here. :(
