You won't make it to my never-ending doggie ball until you cross the centipede moat.

I have seen what most people think of as centipedes, and they make me laugh. The centipedes where I grew up used to get stomped on, which made them laugh. Apparently it tickled.

I would put back about 10 million for my son. Give my family each a million (mother, father, sister, and in-laws). Keep some for my wife and I and give the rest away.

To be honest my wife and I could easily retire on 1 million. I would certainly get a lot of time to fossil collect in a lot of locations.


Almost forgot to mention I would pay off my bills, and then go out and spend a lot of time collecting fossils. I would also get my Subaru Outback lifted a few inches to get me around a few more places. I like to keep it simple.

Melvyn Wilson won $500,000 in the Virginia lottery in 2004, so it was a surprise when he won $25,000 five months later. Six months after that, he scratched off a card to win $1 million. He retired shortly afterward, but the money keeps coming in for the 72-year-old former postal worker: Wilson has now won another $500,000. This was from Virginia's $20-a-ticket "Millionaire Mania,"


Virginia Man Wins $500K in Lottery ... for 3rd Time



Seguro Ndabene, a father of three who lives in Airdrie, Alberta started his winning streak in 2004 when he won $1 million. He then won $100,000 in the Super 7 lotto in 2006, another $1 million and then $50,000 in 2008, and then the big one, $17 million in January 2009. It is his latest winning that has generated so much hoopla and resulted in litigation when a second party claimed the winning ticket was actually jointly purchased.

Buy a loaf of bread and a pack of bologna and enjoy it realizing it will be the last one I will ever eat.

I would need to buy a ticket however if I had such a windfall I would set up neighborhood libraries. Like 1 per development.

Oh, I forgot one thing.
I strongly suspect I have at least two STDs that I sorta just ignore.

With that sorta money I could probably buy cures!

Seriously though, ATS would get some money because I believe strongly in this site's mission. I would also give money to various charities. Wonded vets and the like.

All told I would give away more than half of the 375,000,000 payout. I would do so mostly through charitable donations to avoid tax liabilities the best I could. I would buy all my family's land, upgrade their homes, and sell it back to them for 1.00 dollar with brand new vehicles in the garage. I would set up trust funds for my children, enough for college at 18 and then a handsome amount to be accessed at the age of30. I would give my ex wife 5 million dollars and then I would open a deli/bar me and my bro have been dreaming about and let him run it for the first half a year or so.
First month I would party like a rock star all over the world, maybe two months, and next four my kids and I would go wherever they wanted to go. No expense spared.

After all that I would work at the bar part time and devote a lot more time to my children first and my hobbies second.

ETA: I would also hire "people" to talk to other peoples" "people" JUST SO I could buy J.K. Rowling lunch and pick her brain for a couple hours. I have roughly 1,000 questions I would like to ask her.

2 chicks at the same time. Office Space was a classic. Honestly though, I would give a lot of it away, no doubt about it. NOBODY needs that much money. Nobody needs even a fraction of that. I could not, in good conscience, have that much money in my bank account while people are starving all over the world, while people are cold without a place to live, etc. Money can truly do good in our twisted society, and I would feel great if I had that type of money to help people out with. I would keep some, especially for emergencies, but the vast majority I would just give away. With that kind of money I would probably start my own charity organization, since I cannot trust some other organization to do what I want them to with the money.

Actually, you know, with that kind of money I might try this: I would buy an island somewhere, and start my own society. I think I could pull that off with that much money. I would institute my own government, legal system, etc, and would show that a perfect society could be achieved. It would be Communist basically, with a few changes here and there. I would basically experiment with various systems until I found something that worked, and found the best way to do things. I would invite people to live there as well, but only a certain amount of people. I would like to have an island that had some form of natural resources, but what I would probably do to provide jobs is build some type of manufacturing system, make certain things and then export them.

Everyone would work to their abilities, and everyone would own the means of production. Also, there would not be the same inequality we see today. Not everyone would have the same amount of everything, but it would be much closer that what we see between the rich and poor today. And I would start out by instituting a government, but this government would have certain things that could never be changed, like our Bill of Rights should be today in the US. Like I said, I would experiment. I don't know that I would live there, but I probably would at first, for a while, so I could deal with and solve any major problems that crept up. So ya, those are some things I would like to do if I had that much money. There are other things that I think would be cool and that would help people, but I have limited space, and it would take a lot to write out all of these ideas.

I never buy a ticket but am thinking about investing $2 for a chance; small chance, no chance,

I have convinced myself that when the odds are astronomical, they automatically revert back to 50/50. Either you win, or you don't.

I don't.

All those tickets, and we matched one number here and there. *sigh* I guess we have to drive a while longer.
