    Along the same lines as ExxoticOne however whether you play or not what would you do if you win the lottery? Be as specific as you can. Would you be one of those that end up broke after a year or two?

    I'd buy a nice warehouse and start buying cars like kids buy hotwheels.

    All my family and good friends would be taken care of


    And of course an indoor 6 lane target range

    I would buy almost every gun i ever wanted, including 2 full auto sear to put in a new MP5K with briefcase[can be fired from inside] and one for an MP10.

    I would build my dream house which is pretty interesting imo. It would be a Japanese style castle on an artificial plateau made of stone with a moat filled with aligators and a drawbridge.

    Id spend most my time traveling.

    Id hire at least one full time massuese...maybe 5.

    Give money to people I care about.

    Invest the rest.

    Im assuming we're talking about 100mil. How extravagent i get will really depend on the payout.

    I would never be broke unless we hit hyperinflation.

    Give it all to charity and keep working until they carry me out in a body bag.

    You know what I would do if I had a million dollars? I would invest half of it in low risk mutual funds and then take the other half over to my friend Asadulah who works in securities--

    No, really, though... 10% tithed, nice but not extravagant cars and houses bought for myself and my parents, enough invested in the right funds in the right places overseas to give me a generous yearly "salary" to live/travel on and buy toys with while I'm doing important things, and the rest invested in diverse and interesting ways, to be spent on Good Works as I feel called to do.

    I can guarantee you that I wouldn't sit still. I would certainly be doing a lot more sitting around the house and playing video games, but the majority of my time would be spent back in school (I'll be learning as long as I live) or doing the kind of work I currently take vacation time to do.

    Pay off all my bills,all my families bills and buy 100 acres in the tenn mountains,build a underground home that looks like a log cabin above it.The log cabin would be the guest house.



    Id also build a business that is a range but uses those simunitions,real smgs but they shoot light at movie screen targets.Id have one heck of a collection as well.


    Of course, my friends would each get a new car as well,nothing bigtime but cars like new civics and hybrids.

    I don't play the lottery but my Wife did, so we, like everyone else, thought about what we would do with millions.

    We would do the buy everyone a car thing, etc.

    I figure I would give much of the money away. Not to charities and such but to people. It wouldn't take much looking to find people that could use a little help. Then I'd do the anonymous donor thing.

    Then there's one thing I always wanted to do. Rent a U Haul truck and take my shooting friends to a big gun show. Then tell them everything they can get out to the truck in five hours is theirs.:supergrin:

    Of course I'd blow a bunch of money on land, aircraft, guns, etc.


    Some years back a friend's daughter hit the lottery for 32 million.
    It's interesting. Where as I go into a gun store and buy a couple guns, she goes into the gun store and fills up the back seat of the car.:supergrin:

    Get a travel trailer or houseboat and become a hermit in the Florida Keys.

    Be a bush pilot and made sure my kid and sister and close friends would really don't have to work again. Start my own gated community that had lots on a 3000' runway.
