Uhmm Sorry to burst your bubble, but I think your going to have to add a few sets of '0's onto that number. Especially if you want to spree for the bomber and the force field.

Myself, I'd prolly keep it pretty real though. Nice truck, nice bike (H.D softtail), nice house, and maybe even a vintage spitfire if I have some left over

I'd probably maintain a modest lifestyle for the most part and invest the money. I'd buy a few things, a really fast computer, nice entertainment system.... I'd probably build a house in the Pacific Northwest, like I've always wanted to.

Oh yeah I almost forgot....I'd also get a pool and fill it with sharks...with freaking LAAASERS on their heads.

Well first, I'd pay my taxes. Why am I the only one that doesn't want to share a cell with Ken Lay?

Basically, peak cap gains is at 40%, so you'd need to pay 3.8 million in US taxes (I assume it's a USA lottery I've won). Since I live in Texas and only EVER play that lotto, I wouldn't owe any state or local income tax.

I have a friend who runs a halfway house for addicts, and one that runs a parole house for cons trying to get back into society. Give 'em a mill each as tax write offs. Then another half mil to my church's budget.

Still leaves me 5.7 mil.

Pay off the house, cars and all debt. Now down to about 5.3 mil.

blow 300,000 on kewl home fixtures. Back to that later.

Then put the 5 million into treasury bills, probably get say 3% or so. That interest amounts to $90,000 after taxes. I'd "force" my family to live on that, and then it all goes to charity when Me and the Missus kick over.

Here is the itinerary:

January 07 - Ash wednesday: In Vienna for Rausching, the Waltzing season.

Ash Wed - Easter: Home

Easter - End of June: the beach

July: camping in the mountains.

August - October: In Canada for salmon run, then back to Texas for quail, dove seasons

November - Texas for opening day of dear, then head north into Dakotas for pheasant season, elk.

December. Finish deer, Pheasant in the south plains. Home for Christmas.

Here's The fixtures I want for the house:
-Two-car heated/air conditioned garage with a built-in drain.
-drill press, table saw, wood lathe
-Take out the master bath, install hot tub in the bedroom. Make wife's walk-in closet into the new bathroom.
- take a digital image projector (like for powerpoint presentations), take the top off my bedside table. Now implant the image projector IN the nightstand, so it shines the image up onto the ceiling above our bed. Run TV and stereo through my laptop. I've always wanted to watch TV in bed, but am afraid of something glued to the ceiling breaking loose and falling on me. This way, nothing up there but the image. Problem solved!
-Greenhouse.
-cement bunker, 8x12x6, under the greenhouse, connected to master bedroom closet by a tunnel.

Just a simple man, with simple tastes.

And you'd get ~ $18,000 in exchange for them.

Plus the thrill of having created a one-line post.

Nice try though.

I would buy a big house with all new stuff in it like furniture (I would get leather furniture). An awesome entertainment center with a big plasma screen television, like one that's 60 inches big.
I would get a really nice car. And I would do some traveling.

I would also invest a bunch of it. And give a bunch away to charities and family.

Id buy my local pub/bar , install escalators so me and my mates don't have to waste energy actually walking to the bar form the balcony , I'd bar all men exept me and my mates , and id drink chilled crystal champagne from pint glass, I would also buy and fit a walk in cigar humidor and use nothing less than a £20 note to light my cigars.

At home I would buy some serious entertainment systems , buy some nice new clothes , get a walk in wardrobe , Id also buy a range rover sport , an aston Martin Db9 (black one for me , and a silver one for my dad) a Ducati 999 for my best friend, id pay off any close family morgages etc, set my mum up in a nice little place, and basicly hang out with my friends in the bar , and also probably spend alot of time at spearmint rhinos and stringfellows

I would drop a few hundred g's to a couple of charities and my local air ambulance fund ,
