Assuming 300 million after taxes, that's $100,000/yr.....for the next 3000 years. :D

Good luck spending all that. ;)

sad but true...
Was talking to my liquor store friend, they sell lottery tix...
Bunch of people of people that won locally 1-10 million have pissed it away in less than 10 years...
Had everything repo'd living in their 90 year old parents basement...
The lack of planning is the problem...

CC, I would think it's the lack of intelligence more than anything else. As for the Mega Millions, which part of our wonderful Gov. gets it's share? In Pa. the lottery winnings is only a % of what is played so they get theirs before you ever get it & then they take even more in tax.

I would move the hell out of MA! As faaaaaaaar away as possible, and bring as many people as I could. Just about everyone I know would come. Probably buy houses all over the South & West, and few in Australia.

I would have to build a giant compound on several hundred acres. Smittytown! :woot: Guns, liquor, & ATV's - paradise! :D

All my family & close friends would be set for life.

I would work on designing a system to defeat OBD-II on vehicles, & give it away to the needy in MA. Make a "donation" only if you can afford it. This state screws so many with this system - mainly the poor, who the democrats that run this state claim to be the champions of ...

The rest of it would be spent supporting causes I believe strongly in. Gun rights organizations (among others) would be VERY VERY happy.
