        I'd take the money and disappear.

        I like to think that I'd be smart about it, if I ever won a multi-million dollar lottery. Buying tickets would probably increase my chances, though.

            All I need right now is $75,000 so that I can pay off my car, quit my crappy job, and move out and finish off school without a loan.

                If i won the lotto..according to how much it is, first thing is buying a decent headstone for my parents

                2nd. a rambler style home I'm just a simple person living a simple life..at least trying to. buy a decent truck that runs good,nothing brand new or flashy

                I already know how to say No, especially with the 'F' word in front

                I already know who my friends are, any new ones who appear will soon disapeear unhappy with no money.

                I already know how my siblings are so some may get help if needed but not much. lol

                The main problem would be where to store whats left over. I don't really trust banks anymore

                Oh yeah and definitely take a vacation to go camping in the mountians

                  I could buy all the hand sanitizer I'd ever need.

                    I for one do not want the lotto. I think I am mature enough to really know how my life would change in many bad ways if I had millions of dollars.

                    For one, I wouldn't be able to work in LE anymore.

                    The thought of people calling you all the time for money isn't apealing either.

                    I would buy a Lamborghini and probably die in it.

                    I would be a drunk.

                    I would most likely start smoking again cause of the stress.

                    Yeah, I can honestly take a step back and look at what my life would be with that amount of money.

                    Right now, my career keeps me in line, straight as an arrow, and pushing on till retirment with happy thoughts in mind.

                      I wouldn't mind it, but I don't think I could spend more then a few million. I would take care of my family, friends, and then help out with problem areas in the community: Boys Club, shelters, and other places like that. Hey I would be taken care of the rest of my life, so why not help out others. Oh I should go back, I guess first I would have a meeting with the IRS/TAX man. Then I would do my thing, and Yes, I would keep working. The only thing my agency would be driving nice new vehicles.

                        If you are a moron and you win a few million dollars, you're still a moron.

                        Those people seem to fit the description.

                          Well I'm not a moron. But I'm not a business man either.

                          I think most people can realy step back and look at how big bucks can hurt their life.

                          I can spend wise, I can penny pinch. But I think I would do better on a budget of $ earned.

                          I certainly wouldn't gamble it away cause the only thing I would do in Vegas would be getting drunk in quarks bar at the Hilton's star trek experience.

                            We have a guy over here who's father died and left him about $10 mil. He's spent most of his time in jail since he got the inheritance. Easy way to explain his behavior... he's a dope on dope.

                            Me? If I won "The Big One" The first $3-10 mil would be placed in secure investments never to be touched in my lifetime. If

                              From someone who's won:

                              1. (and this is the BIGGEST)-SAY NO! No matter what, say NO. Sit down and decide what you'll do with the winnings BEFORE claiming them. BEFORE.

                              2. Pay off ALL debts immediately.

                              3. Invest in high yield investments.

                              4. Keep saying NO.

                              It all depends on your priorities, if you're gonna gamble it away, shove it up your nose, in your veins or God knows what other vice is around, then you're going to wind up blowing it all anyways.

                              Harsh but true.
