Post how would you spend a powerball lottery winning?

I sat and listened to the guy who won the last one. He, as far as I remember, was gonna buy a helicopter to fly to his commercila job sites where his company was constructing buildings. Man, there has to be a better way to spend 150 million after tax dollars.

1.) Buy one of every car you ever wanted and put them in the new climate controlled bulding you put up.

2.) Take a long vacaction

3.) Still work, you know, to keep the mind sharp, just don't sweat the mortage anymore because you don't have one!

4.) Take care of immediate family members with a small token gift of lets say 5 million each.

5.) Keep 30 million or so for yourself, rainy days and such, and give the rest to your bud's on hotrodders.com!!!!

Put 10mill. in a CD. 1 mill. in a checking account. Buy a brand spankin new 100th aniversary HD to ride. Buy a house on a warm exotic island with great cruising roads and one in the US. give the rest away to friends, strangers, charities and associations. Every 5 years give the intrest earned away on the 10mill to those mentioned above. Leave the 10mill. when I croak to the shriners to helping children and others. Money ain't any good if it doesn't help anyone.

Whatever I bought for myself such as boats , bikes , quads , cars trucks , etc , I'd buy for all my buddies because it would suck having all that stuff by yourself and when you want to go enjoy them your buddies wouldn't have anything or would not be able to get time off work . Gotta look out for your buddies , then the family

1. buy cars
2. buy or start a High Performance shop (Trust me you would have the machining equipment and such to do EVERYTHING ANYONE ASKED YOU TO DO)
3. Start a large investment portfolio (mixture of stocks, mutuals, etc)
4. Pay people to do stupid stuff (1000 bucks to run around with the only thing covering their body is a pair of THORNBUSH UNDIES)
5. CHICKS CHICK CHICKS
6. Get the rest in cash and throw it on your bed.. nothing like sleeping in cash

I think HK touched a sensitive chord in me. I believe I would have to give substantially to childrens charities - like ya said - it's no good if you can't help someone. I like that. Outlaw brings in a good point, hire your bud's as "advisors", then they'd have the time to waste with you!!

SC are you actually going to go out and buy some women or just date a supermodel?? :p

I would...
1) Quit my job.
2) Buy a house (still nothing too big, as it just seems like a waste of space.)
3) Make sure family and friends get a little somethin somethin.
4) Give to women's cancer research and no-kill animal shelters.
5) Adopt a child or children.
6) Take a 6 month trip around the world.
7) Produce my own film.
8) Buy every car I've day dreamed about.
Basically live the easy life! <img src="graemlins/sweat.gif" border="0" alt="[sweat]" />

I would pay off my mortgage and all of my other creditors, and if there was still enough left, I would order a large deluxe pizza for supper.

4: 10M to MDAC
5: 2M to our local food bank
6: 1968 Corvette L88
7: Replace my puny 24' by 28' Garage with a 40'
by 60' shop.
8 : Leave 5M to various other charities.

I would sponsor charity, but do so quitely. I would do a large amount anonymously. I prefer to do good works more in secret.

I would have a huge shop and gym at home. My home would qualify for extreme homes on that home channel.I would get a huge home theater system, plus one tv room would have about 12 35 inch tvs for each nfl game. I would have a t3 line to my house. I would get every southpark dvd. I would buy a cray supercomputer just for the heck of it. I would have an indoor 25 yard shooting range. I would own just about every quality firearm known to man. I would also collect quality swords and armor from around the world. I would have an indoor pool in my home, maybe even olympic size. And we are also talking about a house that is substantially underground. Maybe not all of it, but a large portion. The shop would be above ground with lifts and a full compliment of machine shop and welding tools.

I would buy my mom a house and a cadillac, maybe one of those Escalades. I would buy my dad something similar. I would pay off all house loans for my family. I would buy some buddies some cool stuff.

I would invest in real estate, mostly houses and other rental properties. I would also have a diversified investment portfolio. I would also use that portfolio to influence the companies I own towards my beliefs.

Oh yeah, lots of chicks. Lot's of chicks. Got to have those too.

Put 5 mil a kid away for college and them to start life on.

give a few mil to the shriners since I belong and love helping with the causes we support
give a few mil to the nra to keep my rights to own firearms.
put the rest in a CD and live off the interest.

I'd pay all my debts, get a new house, give a fat chunk to the church, and quit work and start my own car building customizing shop. One day I hope to start a race shop of some sort, but without a good chunk of money it is just hard to leave a good salary job and take a chance at complete failure. With Money we could live great and not make a dime off of the business. Just be doin what I love.

150 mil eh...

1.) 2 square miles in land for a decently big house and race tracks drag strips and a off road course
2.)Do whatever it takes to get my 94 Z-28 over 1000 hp without nitrous oxide.
3.)Buy a used military Hummer,the kind that are bullit and small bomb proof with a P.A. system and go find a large group of rice boys and their rice burners and see how much hell I can raise.
4.)Put 50 mil in the largest intrest bank I can find.So I could live off that for the rest os my life.
5.)Turbocharge a riding lawnmower.
6.)10 mil to the Childrens Hospital in Columbus Ohio because of how well they took care of me during my three open hart surgeries and numerus (sp?) other trips there.
7.)Buy a honda civic every month just so I can blow it up with a large amount of c-4.(god I hate those cars)
8.)Buy certin family members and friends cars.
9.)Buy every muscle car I ever wanted maybe two of each.

Thats all I can think of right now.
