I think it was 110 million after taxes... anyway, I'd probably take the per-year payout, it's over what, 20 years? That's like more than 10 million a year, that'd do me fine I think...
anyway, if I had it all at once though I'd...
*employs the list function*
  • pay off my debts
  • pay off my parents' and stepparents' debts
  • get a whole new freakin wardrobe, I hate my clothes
  • buy a couple new guitars/basses/amps, a computer, and other such toys
  • and a car since I'm carless
  • give some to my mother, but only on the condition that she and Tim quit their jobs and and invest some of it on opening up a water gardening store. She's always wanted that. They also have to get new siding, I hate the color of this house.
  • Give another chunk to Dad and Deb on the condition that they hire a financial advisor. My dad can't budget for shit.
  • Give some to my brother, on the condition that he goes to see the Two Towers with me since no one else will
  • Give some to my aunt cheryl so she can get off food stamps
  • Give some to my cousin Akuah so she doesn't have to worry about her baby and her diabetic supplies... on the condition that she takes a trip to Africa. Her dad was from Ghana and she really wants to go there and meet her family.
  • Give some to various other close family members that I may have forgotten, unless I haven't heard from them in 10 years, then they can kiss my ass
  • Get my grandma out of Miller's Merry Manor (what an awful name for a nursing home), get her a little house, and some in-home care. Unless she likes the nursing home thing, I'm not really sure. I just hate that place's name.
  • That's all the family that get anything, and I wouldn't start on my friends because I wouldn't know where to stop. They say the people who win big and lose it all, most of them gave it all away.
  • Decide whether to quit school or not, I know I'd be really tempted... but why not stay?
  • invest what's left

Everybody here keeps asking me if I am related to this guy. I keep having to say "No he spells his last name the wrong way with two T's and I spell mine the proper way with one"

Hey nbc, you never said what you would do......

Ditto on the lawyer/financial planner contacts, then I'd figure what 10% of the winnings would be and spread that out between my church and charities that I regularly contribute to.
Not sure if I would finish school or not, I'm more that 1/2 way so I'd probably just stick it out. I'd give at least a million to each of my relatives that I've seen at least once in the past 5 years. I would then organize a huge real-life gathering of all Interferencers - I'd spring for everyone's plane tickets, figure out a really cool place to host the bash, and figure out some way to bribe our U2 boys to play a personal concert for us and take individual pics with everyone Then I would take the time to personally thank them for doing such a nice thing

Of course I'd get a reliable car (prolly one of those cool new hybrids), and then sell the house and maybe get a farm so I can have a horse and a potbellied pig (and pay someone to help with the stable work). I'd definitely take some time to travel the world (in my own private jet). After that, prolly settle down and start our family by adopting a kiddie or 2.

I'd also hire a personal massage therapist to be on hand 24/7.

i'd convert the payout into a lump sum of cash (all five dollar bills or smaller btw), go into my room, lock the door behind me, spread out the money, and roll around in it with nothing but a gluttonous look on my face. then i'd walk out of my room and act like nothing happened.

*i too would at least give 10% of it back to the churches that have nourished my soul
*i'd give a large chunk of it back to my parents, who have provided me with everything a child could possibly need or want (material things aside)
*of course i'd allocate some of the money to relatives
*with the remainder, i'd probably just travel the globe, buy a relatively modest beachfront home, buy 1 or 2 original Picasso and/or Dali paintings, hire the best art instructor money can buy, and save.

Egads, you're right!

- Tithe to various ministries and charities we support.
- Set up educational funds for my children, family member's children and close friends.
- Make my parent's lives easier.
- Buy a house in our neighborhood.
- Buy a car that isn't 13 years old.
- Hire an accountant/investment counselor/lawyer to handle the funds and create a foundation.
- Go to seminary.
- Split my time between ministry and managing the foundation.
- Buy a family TV that I can play DVDs
- Buy those garbage bags that have the handles built-in to the bag!
- Pray for wisdom on raising my kids with that kind of money (I see how it warps some in our community).
