I'd invest in booze and women and piss away the rest.

I'd buy a suit, a suit of drugs.

My wife and I discussed this last evening as we drove home from her parent's place after Easter Dinner. In Canada, we get to keep the full Jackpot amount without Taxes...so if this week's LottoMax is $40 million (which it is) you get to deposit the whole sum after you've cleared the background checks.

We figured we'd give my parents, her parents, my brother and his wife a million dollars per couple. We have a set of really good friends who are not well off financially, and we figured we'd slip them half a million.

One of my best friends, one of the groomsmen at our wedding and my old partner from work was injured in a Motorcycle Accident almost 3 years ago when some 17 year old in a cage T-boned him. It ended his Paramedic career, and he still has yet of receive any type of settlement. While not an ADV rider, he's been clear across the country on his Kawasaki Nomad and his Harley and is very active in the CMA. We'd give them a million.

Now, how much do I have left? 35.5 Million? Hmmmmm...

Gonna invest about half of that...gotta make sure that I can continue to live comfortably while pursuing my dreams, right?

So, I've got - what, 17.75 million to play with?

Better open up some College Funds for my son and my nephews. And buy them some dirt bikes. Every kid's gotta have a dirt bike, right?

I'd take the whole family (Me, Little Stain and Mrs. Stain) to some warm, exotic location, and probably Disney World. Then, we'd leave Little Stain with Grandma and Grandpa and go some place warm for me and the Mrs.

Then when we were home, have to hook up with a Realtor for one of these:



And then a huge shop to play in:



I'd certainly need one of these:



And one of these:



And then I'd have to plan my trip around the world.




After that, I'd probably just sit around my huge house, eat cheetos, watch pr0n and masturbate.

Pay off the cars (almost there on one already), then fix up this dump of a house enough to sell it and at least break even.

Then buy less dumpy house on a larger piece of land. Bigger kitchen for the wife, bigger garage for me. Everything else stays more or less the same with the house/size. In fact, I wouldn't even sell this one if there was room on the land parcel to build another garage and expand the kitchen.

Beyond that, do a lot of traveling. There are a lot of places the wife and I really want to see before we die.

Go hide in a secluded cabin for three months with no one knowing where I am except for a lawyer and a tax adviser. Worry bout what to do after that, after the dust settles and the leaches have somewhat given up or forgotten.

First I'd pay off bills. Next I'd get myself a nice Little house out of the city's with a detached garage and a little bit of land maybe an acre.

Then the remaining half would go into savings.

Maybe then if i could id take a few months and do a Full Canada tour.

And lastly. To keep busy I could see owning and running a paintball park. Paintball has been a hobby of mine for a very very long time and I'd love to be able to spend my time introducing others to it.

How big? $2M would be nice but it would be a different set of choices than winning $20M or $200M

Fuck around 5 days a week instead of 3. Be in the mountains in July and August, down on the gulf in the spring and fall when the reds are running and out in Terlingua in the winter.

I met a guy who hit a couple million, in a year he was busted and working construction again. I asked if he wished he had held on to the money, he said fuck no, bought my mother a nice house, bought my sister a nice house, got cars for the nieces and nephews, did some really cool things for some people who took care of me when I was down. Wouldn't change nothing, made a lot of good peoples dreams come true.

Impressed the shit out of me.

Lottery is tax for people who are bad at math.

That said, Hallberg-Rassy 64, no forwarding address and a very happy investment representative.

Simply put, I'd quit doing things I don't enjoy and I would start doing more of the things that I like.

Life still wouldn't be nirvana but it would be much better.

Build new house in the middle of nowhere with rifle and pistol range, large outbuilding with machine shop, new boat, new car for the wife, couple of bikes, and then live off the interest and never touch the principle. Travel and experience the world.
