What would you do if you won the lottery?

Say you won $50 million from the lotto. What would you do?

50 million...I can't even think of how much that really is

To start with, I would buy a slightly larger house (so I'd have more room for tanks) and I'd get atleast 2 55 gallon freshies (to start with) and a 90 gallon salt for my dad. Possibly a 15 gallon salt for me I'd buy a car for my sister, new cars for my parents. My parents could quit their jobs. I would have a greenhouse in my backyard (mostly for orchids ) I would also have an aviary, with canaries and finches. I'd get a pond/water garden, possibly about 5,000 gallons (with koi of course ) Oh goodness, I'll stop there.

What would you do? Be creative! :D

Okay. I would buy myself a bigger house, a new place for my parents and pay off my family's mortgages.

Then I would take one VERY long trip down the LFS.

THEN.... Nepal and Everest Base Camp here I come!!! :D

Oh this is hard. Hmmm...
Well, I'd put most of it in the bank so it can collect interest. Then I'd buy a car, probably an SUV of some sort. I would rent myself an apartment until I got married, at which time I would buy us a house to raise a family in. My kids could have a pet of thier choice; I'm sure they'd start out with rats or hamsters or something. Eventually they could have aquariums or puppies whenever they are old enough. (I would have 3 75-gal freshwaters. That way I can house many different types of fish. I bet I would get a puppy too.)
I would be able to visit my family in Wisconsin whenever I wanted and they could come out here as well. Ummm... Brie actually said most of what I would want to do...

since my money expenditures are controlled by my parents to some degree anyway (no ridicule plz), I'd throw it into a bank and let it sit for a coupla years just to collect interest... then when I become independent, anything my parents wish for, anything I wish for, and maybe something little that my friends wish for :D

definately a large house with a huge room devoted to fish, and thosands of RC airplanes...(I always liked the looks of a Funtana...maybe a sukhoi, Stryker C would be fine... a coupla aerobirds for dogfighting...)

No ridicule from me. That's a very good idea.

Hmm, I wonder what two years interest would be on 50 million dollars.

A fair wee sum I should think :D

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
