Friday's Mega Millions Jackpot Now $476 Million! Almost a half a billion dollars.  What would you do with all that money? 
(If you win and need my name and address to share the wealth, please do not hesitate to PM me.  ;D )

WOW I'm for sure going to buy one, two or 20!!! JK :rofl;  We should all get together, buy a bunch and if any of us wins we split it!!

What would I do if I won? Idk, I would for sure pay off my moms & dads house for them and then anything and everything I have ever wanted to do!!! lol. But got to make sure to put a good chunk away for taxes.

First, I would buy the mobile home park I live in and rehab it. All rent would be no more than $100.00 per month.
I would also build an emergency clinic on site and a Dialysis unit.
Of course, all my kids would have paid for homes
AT least one million goes to my church
Two new cars and a fancy new snazzy golf cart, maybe 2
A trip to Vegas is in order then, for two weeks, room service every day, massages and lots of shopping!!
Wait, I have to go and see how much I have left, then I will come back and spend more.

1. Give all my employees a raise (substantial)
2. Hire someone to replace me so I could retire.
3. Donate substantial sums to all my favorite charities
4. Set up trust funds for my daughter and for all my grandchildren.
5. Spread the wealth among my friends.
6. Build an indoor pool so I could swim every day of the year.
7. Travel extensively.

That's a good start.  :2thumbsup;

1.  I would give five million dollars to each of the following:  grandparents, parents, in laws, BILs, SILs and nieces.  It's all you get.  Do with it what you will, but don't come asking for more.
2.  We would sell our existing house and move to a gated community in a nicer area. 
3.  New cars.
4.  Hire a PR firm, accountant and attorney.  All other requests for money would go through them.
5.  Personal trainer and massage therapist.
6.  New wardrobe.

Set up our wills so that all remaining money when we die goes to the PAWS animal shelter here in Chicago.

1)  pay off small current mortgage
2)  purchase tiny (1000 sqf) condo with nice view in florida
3)  new car for wife and me (noth'in fancy, just nice)
4)  invest enough to live comfortably
5)  stabilize any family members in need (key word, stablize not complete finance)
5)  spend the rest of our lives (whatever that is) searching for and locating the best groups that help others and donate, ie: IHD, polycycstic research, Feed My Starving Children, animal welfare and on, and on, and on...

Oh wait, I just got hit by lighting... ;D

Buy a ticket to the Phillipines and buy a kidney.  Too bad I have to outsource.  Quit Medicare and my insurance.  They can go to hell.  And pay off all my immediate family's bills.  New house, new car.  New dog. 

I have 3 tickets.    :yahoo;

Time to buy a ticket!

If I won, I'd give money to everyone on IHD so that they'd never have another financial worry ever again.  Wouldn't that be just fantastic!!  How much FUN would that be!  We could have the granddaddy of all meet-ups!  I get so tired to hearing about IHD members who become impoverished by this disease and by the treatment that is supposed to be life-sustaining.

And then I'd go to Hawaii, then NZ and then Australia.

$975,000,000.00 ought to be enough to buy controlling shares in every major dialysis supplier.  Now that, I could have fun with!  >:D

The news came on later and said they made a mistake and that there were 3 winners.  It was a case of, "Dewey Defeats Truman."
