  • $117,000,000 - What would you do with this?

    As you know this self made millionaire (before the win) won the mega jackpot and took home after taxes $117 million bucks.

    I know what I'd do with alot of that money. Just wondering what you guys would do with this kind of cash?!!??!

    Quit my job, buy a new Nikon and head off to backpack across Scotland.

      Quit my job, buy a lot of land, buy a BIG house, and a bunch of cars, and a few garages, and then a big extension to my house, and buy out a few gun stores, and buy more cars, and a few more garages, and a few more extensions to the house, and donate money to Towson U. so they could rename Linthicum Hall "Crazy in a Jeep Hall" ...

              Hmmm.... let's see. I'd quit my job and then I'd beat feet to some tropical place with lots of sun and umbrella drinks

                I'd quit my job, buy every single Kimber made, buy a really good camera with lenses and head off to Ireland then to Italy with my best friend.

                After I had enough of that, I'd keep applying to be a police officer till I was hired. Money or not, it's what I want to do.

                    I would buy my job and appoint someone else to run it.

                    Then, being 18, Id probably spend it all on cars, women and booze.

                        I would set up accounts so that I could live off the interest.

                        Then, I would resign my position, find a LARGE tract of land, and build a good-sized house near the middle of it, complete with a shooting range, and start doing some of the things I can't afford to do now: shoot more often, get back into photography in a bigger way, and just enjoy life.

                        I would also set up a trust fund (anonymously) for the children of some of my co-workers, so that they could afford to send them to college, and probably buy a bunch of houses around town to rent, at a lower-than-going rate for LEO's.

                        I realize that it doesn't sound that bad for a 3 bedroom house to rent for $600-800 per month, but with our pay scale, that is nearly as much as some newer Officers are taking home after deductions [Eek!]

                        Nah, haven't thought about it at all [Wink]

                            Actually, the gentleman elected to take the lump sum, which was about $170MM.

                            So, Uncle Sugar only got $53MM.

                              I love this question because I get to go to dreamland! I think I answer it differently each time!

                              Build an A Frame massive log cabin
                              (I'll leave out the naked male servants this time!)
                              Live with the man of my dreams in peace and harmony with nature
                              Set up a 30 bed home for abused children, women, (men if the need is identified) and pets in each province.
                              Give money to the Christian mission for overseas care.
                              Set up a fund where medical expenses will be paid for those with a life threatening illness and the inability to pay for treatment.
