All That Money

On the News this morning, 

A newsman in a delicatessen in New York interviewing people who are standing in line for lottery tickets for the Super Duper lotto Jackpot that is expected to top $330,000,000. The reporter was asking folks what they would do with the money if they won and most of the replies were run of the mill, but that got me thinking.

Now before we go any further let's take a little side journey and talk about odds. 
The odds of winning that Jackpot are 1 in 160,000,000 (that's pretty steep) In fact to put that into perspective I'm gonna copy pasta something

Lightning Odds:
The odds of getting struck by lightning in the U.S. in any single year is 1 in 700,000.
The odds of being struck in your lifetime is 1 in 5,000.

Now I'm no mathema-- mathmati---- you know one of those math guys, But I'm gonna just put this out there I have never even worried about getting struck by lightning and I live in Florida (lightning capitol of the country!)

With all that being said what would you do with the money? Here's a few things I think I would spend some of that on:
1. I would pay off my house, upgrade it and give it to my parents, Fuck that I would pay off my house then give it to the fire department to burn down.

2. I would buy LARGE plots of land in say Tenessee, California, Maine and Virgina where I could build smallish cabins for me to go stomp around whenever I wanted.

3. I would build my parents a house anywhere they wanted.

4. I would donate some to charity.

5.I would go to Vegas and live like a whale for about a week, $5,000 dollar a night hookers included. (don't tell what's her name)

6. I would set aside $1,000,000 to save the Narwhals ( I feel they have been much maligned of late) Maybe those Whale Wars guys could help.

7. get a boat (around 35'-40')

Oh and I would get Rock a new yard all of his own

So, what would you do if you won like a gazillion dollars?

Already spending my money (even though I didn't get a ticket)
