    If you won the Lottery

    What would you spend the money on?(say $1,000,000 - 1,000,000)
    I ain't got a signature anymore, someone stole it and I want it back.

    I would go to college and learn how to spend it to make more.

    I'd probably do something like this:

    - get a house ($150,000)
    - get a car ($20,000)
    - get a new comp and AV system ($10,000)
    - get my parents and my friends some stuff they need
    - invest most of the rest in securities and stocks

    maybe a bit later (when I finished my business studies) I'd open up a record label with the money. Or I'd start a local, truly broadband, ISP. Something to that effect.

    A brand new house.
    A brand new car, for once in my life!
    Getting a wee bit tired of the used car game.

    Pay off our mortgage, buy a nice house way out in the country. Then I would get my pilots licence, buy a plane and build somewhere to store it so I could fly all the time.

    If there was any left I would send the kids away to a military school.

    Cool

    Hi JLR

    First i would buy a new pair of underwear.

    Then sit at Home laughing for a couple of days, mind racing as i plotted my strategy and said my Thanks to the Big Guy.

    I Million sounds like a lot but isn't.


    10% to the Church to do some Good works with, or whatever They choose to do with it. I'm Catholic if it matters to anyone.

    10% to Family to help them out a bit as well. No sense, nor joy in having something good happen in your life if you cannot share it with others.

    New Comp., Little Boat, Possibly plan and build a Self Sufficient Solar Home with energy saving devices built in and it's own Greenhouse etc. to be free of the need for most things, without losing or giving up any feel good stuff. Not essential as i'm Happy where i am.

    Invest the balance to increase my yearly income and sit down and make out a Will leaving whatever i possess to my Family and excluding the Govt. from screwing me once again on Taxes, to the best of my ability and the worlds greatest Tax Expert.


    Be Happy.


    regards

    I know I would spend some, but I'm not sure on what. I would pay off my dad's house, get my mom a small house, get me a house, new computer, car, that kind of thing. Oh, and fly to Michigan to meet my neice.

    50% I would give to freinds and family
    10% i would use for fixing up house, comp etc.
    40 % i would invest and live off the interest


    Most important > I would keep it a secret for about a month so i could cooridinate a plan that would create a really great day for close family members.
    I would send them all a treasure map or sumthing sort of like a big easter egg hunt but instead of eggs cars, money, etc.i would also have a one nite homemade gameshow where they can win prizes

    *Quick note* 70% of all lotery winners of $1mil US declare bankruptcy within 12 months...


    Take half and IMMEDIATELY invest it. Heh, just invest in the right things (let me put it this way, stocks are falling, but most of mine have been going up this past week). Invest wisely.

    Take another big chunk, and donate it to various organizations. They need it more than you.

    The rest, pay off outstanding bills and debts, student loans, possibly even a mortgage on your house.
