    Pay off all my debt, buy the military weapons I've been wanting, with enough ammo to last a couple years without restocking. Put some money away so I can have some interest trickling in, and then put myself through school. And I'd also put some work into my car and give it some more power.

    It wouldn't buy much due to the hyperinflation that it would cause. I don't have any pre-existing debts so it wouldn't do me much good.

    THIS!

    if everyone had a million dollars, they wouldn't go back to work. in order to get people working (producing the things we need to survive) employeers would have to offer higher hourly rates. like maybe $30-$50 per hour! then prices would skyrocket (necessarily) and you would not be a "millionaire" anymore, because the $ wouldn't have any value. that is what all this money printing (quantitative easing) is doing to our economy.

    I'd pay off my school loans and my car (only debt I have) buy a modest house here in Ashland and invest the rest.

    Buy a bunch of cool **** ahead of time on credit. Then pay it off with the handout. Then live in poverty for the rest of my life due to skyrocketing prices.

    I couldn't force myself to apply for welfare to get the million dollars. I guess I would still be working to pay for everyone else that took it.

    I'd sit on it.

    95% of people will be broke inside of a year.

    Then I would invest in tangles like gold, silver, ammo, guns and property.

    People will riot and want another million.
