    Buy a home outright.
    Put 90% in a bank
    Pay debts off for my nearest relatives
    Go to america and visit a load of people i would love to se
    And defenetly get all the people from here and that i know all together for one massive weeks party.

    I'd build a modest house on our current property, give some to immediate family, donate some to our local hospitals, and invest the rest. Then live off the interest, while continuing to work.

    What makes you think I've won the lottery? I don't even play!

    (but I am a product of depression era thinking. My grandfather taught me plenty. ;) )

    I'm sure. :D

    It would just seem too obvious to my friends and family if I started spending like water. It seems easier to stay wealthy if nobody knows. Doesn't it? :cool

    Likely, but it's difficult to conceal lottery winnings... Part of the acceptance terms usually involves publicity. Or so I'm told. ;)

    1) Spend about half on porn.

    2) Sign up for life with a shrink.

    3) Buy Sexual Forums from Ryan.

    No #4 or #5. #3 took the rest of my winnings. :eek:

    2. Buy a very large plot of land and build a modest house on it, somewhere beautiful.
    3. TRAVEL!
    4. Volunteer at museums, parks and other places I enjoy, support causes I've always wanted to support.
    5. Invest the remainder, watch it grow, and just enjoy life. :)
