    Garret AT Pro metal detector, sounds good.

    My last detector was stolen by my daughter and her hyped up boyfriend. Sucks to be on H.

    Expensive, but doable, esp. if you hit the Lottery

    I would do the following:

    1. Invest wisely
    2. Purchase a ticket for a Champions League game and watch the El Classico at Madrid and Barcelona
    3. Buy good quality sportswear (I run and cycle a lot, and with my income, I can't afford the best clothes for these purposes. Especially when I cycle to work and have to change into work clothes, my cycling clothes remain damp until I have to wear them again to cycle back home).

    Modest dreams these may be, but these are what I'd do.

    I would create a treasure hunt so you guys could go running around collecting stashes of cash, gold,. There would also be contests for ex: first member to shear Maddoc and knit me a tuke would get 100k. I wouldn’t actually wear the tuke bcz god only knows what specimens of biological matter exists in that wool! so instead I would pay a member to sure brembo wears it 24/7

    I was going to post a link to that thread, but the SG search results for "bullsh|t" were too numerous

    sometimes you have to think outside the box to get inside the box .

    500 mill, to take home?

    First, id take half, so 250 mil, put it in account, then LEAVE IT ALONE for 5 years.

    So now i have 250. Ill split it again. 125 goes into savings, 125 i can spend. Then ill break it down like this:

    50 million to various charities-not all at once, i'd need to research, ect. But 50 is set aside for charity. 50 is for spending-house, cars, stuff for friends, ect. I dont plan to spend it all, but its all spendable. Tge last 25 is just to sit in my account and gather interest and be there if i need it.

    In 5 years, i would see how im doing moneywise, and then decide if i want to do something with the rest-the other 250. But even if i did id only use probably half of it. Id always keep a decent amount untouched in case something goes catastrophically wrong, and so i can leave it to people when i die

    Can't/wont drink it straight (at least since I was 12 or so), but I do love it in my second mug of coffee.

    Same with Disaronno. Love the stuff, but don't want it mixed or on ice. A swig out of the bottle is perfect, and a bottle will last me at least a year.
