If you won the lottery

I just played the California Lottery for the first time because the Mega Millions Jackpot is up to $99,000,000 and that's like, a lot of money. I hope I remember to check my tickets when the numbers are called. How do you even know when/where they announce these numbers? #lotterynoob


If you won $99,000,000 (slash half that for taxes), what would you do with the monies?

The first two things would be pay off my debt and then get my surgeries.

The surgeries even trump buying a house or travelling at this point.

But once I was all healed up, I would do those kind of things. I would also want to see if anyone in my family wanted/needed anything.

courtney pie

Payoff debt Buy houses Buy cars Travel

Chipmnk

Pay all of my student loans, buy a Macbook Pro, buy new shoes, buy a bag, give the rest to my parents.

Pay off debt Buy a house with a real backyard Pay off my parents' debt and pay to add onto their house Pay off grandparents' debt Buy a few friends/family members cars Give some to my cousin to pay for her daughter's college Give lump sums to a bunch of people Take a bunch of friends on a sweet around the world vacation Donate a bunch to my charities Invest

Twiggyhall

Your boobs are already so luscious, though, Leon!

Forgot to mention, I'd get one of these with a top-of-the-line stereo installed:

actually with that kind of money i'd build a big garage under one of my houses and get the full set of 60s and 70s classics. cuda, mustang, stingray, camaro, trans am, etc.

courtney pie

oh, and I'd open a beer store and learn to microbrew my own kinds. and open an animal shelter. and donate to that charity that matches pets with vets.

i think rather than just giving millions to charity there has to be a way to ensure the same charities have a dependable income. like buying a whole apartment building in their name and letting them collect the rent forever.

Twiggyhall

I'd quit my job and hang out at CP's beer store all day, ogling Leon's boobs

Ding! Totes would donate to animal charities.

Adhesive_Hippo

Save most, go to college, pay back my parents for various things, and be awesome.

marblecargirl

Also, I would not quit my job, or tell anyone I worked with. I'd keep living off my regular paycheck after I did all the extra stuff, and invest the leftovers. I would also anonymously give a bunch of people at work like 2-5 grand. I'd just leave the cash in envelopes on their desks.

littlem

pay off debt pay off family members' debt buy a beach house let someone live in my old house and they'd just pay utilities also buy a home near a great hiking area have a party in vegas set up special scholarship funds at my kids' school invest donate buy a shitload of gifts for friends

I'd pay for school. Share wealth with family. Probably purchase a newer, yet sensible car. Maybe find a house to rent. Work on a "career," free of many pressures.

courtney pie

I wouldn't work. I'd be too busy brewing beers and hanging out with Jen in the shop and travelling to try different beers for ideas on my new flavors.

courtney pie

I'd also payoff Gram and mom's debt but that's it. Give some to friends to help them along as well, but only a handful.

SuperRyan

Maybe get a $400 haircut. So swank.

Twiggyhall

Fact: I would throw the most kickass T-less meet-up ever and pay for everyone to get there & back.

courtney pie

I might consider buying my own island and building a collection of my favorite architectural homes and a windy road/race track around the island.

Peter Gibbons: Our high school guidance counselor used to ask us what you would do if you had a million dollars and didn't have to work. And invariably, whatever you'd say, that was supposed to be your career. So if you wanted to fix old cars, then you're supposed to be an auto mechanic. Samir Nagheenanajar: So what did you say? Peter Gibbons: I never had an answer. I guess that's why I'm working at Initech. Michael Bolton: No, you're working at Initech 'cause that question is bullshit to begin with. If that quiz worked, there would be no janitors, because no one would clean shit up if they had a million dollars. Samir Nagheenanajar: You know what I would do if I had a million dollars? I would invest half of it in mutual funds and then take the other half over to my friend Sadulach who works in Securities. Michael Bolton: Samir. Samir, you're missing the point. The point of the exercise is that you're supposed to figure out what you would want to do . . . (reads the printer's display). PC load letter?!! What the fuck does that mean?!! Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars? Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man. Peter Gibbons: [laughs] That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time? Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, 'cause chicks dig a dude with money. Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks. Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do. Peter Gibbons: Good point. Lawrence: Well what about you now? what would you do? Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time? Lawrence: Well yeah. Peter Gibbons: Nothing. Lawrence: Nothing, huh? Peter Gibbons: I'd relax, I would sit on my ass all day, I would do nothing. Lawrence: Well you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Just take a look at my cousin, he's broke, don't do shit.

-Pay off our debts (student loans, credit cards, bills, blah blah blah) -Buy land near Austin and build the house I want to grow old in -Put a downpayment on a place near Greenlake -Send my little sister to UW and have her stay in the house by Greenlake -Help my parents buy new vehicles

courtney pie

I would buy a giant winebago and invite people to join me on a cross country* road trip.

*not including canada and mexico

courtney pie

Also, my house would be a mystery house with secret passages and stuff. As close to the house in Clue as possible. But without the murder dinner party

Twiggyhall

Hey! I live in a house with a view of Greenlake!

We don't own it, though, but maybe someday...

Twiggyhall

YES to secret passage house! I've always wanted one, too!

I think I read somewhere that Anna Sui has a kick-ass house with secret passages...

Twiggyhall

Is Byork related to Bjork??? :p

Pay off all student loans. 3-story house with at least an acre of land right up against the water. Fancy furniture/electronics to fill that house, clothes, etc. A couple cars. Open up a small design studio/gallery space. Hire a personal trainer. Buy parents a new house and new vehicles. Give some money to both sisters. Travel all over the place. Money in an off-shore account.

i'd be offended if i was bjork. it looks like they want her isolated where she won't do any harm.

Twiggyhall

Tee hee!

Kick ass, though - I wouldn't mind having my own island :)

courtney pie

seriously?! where does she land the helicopter?

courtney pie

also, it looks a little too windy. I would want to run around stark naked because I could. and a slip n slide could be dangerous :( which is saddening.

courtney pie

She should've donated it to charity. Like the lepers. They probably could use a nice island.

courtney pie

brb - shopping for my private jet

stubby43

I just want a portal gun, oh and maybe exploding lemons.

Twiggyhall on Aug 04 '11 at 5:40pm Hey! I live in a house with a view of Greenlake!

LUCKY. The houses over there are amazing! My dream is to someday buy one as a summer home. Our little house has a view of what I think is Puget Sound (if you tippy toe or stand on a chair) from the back deck, but we're also renting :L.

courtney pie

I would also want a home in the French Quarter.

i wonder what Villa Del Balbianello is worth. probably more than 100 mil.

Twiggyhall

I do love it - it's so nice to be able to walk to restaurants, the market, pubs and, of course, the lake itself!

They're gonna have to drag us kicking and screaming out of this place, lol

courtney pie

Is that the house from the end of Casino Royale?
