Mega Lotto-What would you do with $290 million?

Blog Posted:3/22/2012 10:43:00 AM

Hi guys!  Admittedly, I don't play the lotto.  My whole family plays and I call them suckers.  I'd rather take my chances on things like game shows and parlaying the hard six (only those lucky enough to know how to play craps will get it). 

Anyway, I hooked up my neighbor's printer yesterday and she just dropped me off a lottery ticket for the Mega Jackpot that's at about $290 million.  That was nice of her.

So, if I hit should I just give her the dollar back or shall I be nice and offer to pay for her printer?

Also, what would you do if you won $290 million.  Let's be honest....I don't want to hear any "save the world" Miss Universe type answers.

OH and BTW...if I hit the $290 million, Bentleys for everyone!

Yet another fun blog, Natalie :) Hmm oh shucks, is there still any of the $290 million left for me? lol--- what would I do? Hmm after giving some secret donations...I'd probably buy my own island-- have a cocoa plantation and outbeat Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory, plus travel, travel, travel...

Natalie, I am not delusional enough to think that $290mil could save the world - unfortunately, that amount of money is just a drop in the bucket. I would share a big chunk with people(you could have some money without any DEE DEE or strings attached wotsoever), and invest a big chunk, just in case I blew the load with Mick-Dad....Hmmmm, I would do a lot of travelling again, and lose huge interest in logging onto the Soup lol. Then after a bit o' craziness, I would do lil' silly things like creating my own poetry website. No charges, PMs; completely free. Everyone would be on an equal basis as far as blogging, etc(and have those "radio" filter buttons, so people could choose to view/block adult poetry, because I am against the censorship of any art form - I couldn't care less about the excuses surrounding censorial action - for the most part, any administrative body is blatantly biased and hypocritical. I would have to keep this in mind for myself. Not having PMs, would make me less "interested" in serving the needs of paid members over others, in a hypocritical fashion). And everyone would be welcome to join.

Firstly i got the thrill watching you go for the win-Hooray :),Secondly I would divide the money by 4-Part for family,Part to invest and get interests,part to the third world children and the remaining to travel and travel ....:)

First of all, let me wish you good luck on your Mega ticket. I would be happy if you only paid for my lifetime membership! Is it too much too ask of you, Natalie? Of course, a BTW would be also appreciated. Oh, you should offer to pay for her printer..she was so nice to give you a chance at winning big! Hoping you will be a big winner soon.:)& hugs. Your friend in poetry, Andrew.

Sean-you even rhyme in your comments-that is great :) Joyce...You'd be left with about $150 million-that's a nice chunk of change-I'm sure your family and friends would appreciate your generosity :)

After taxes I don't know how much that would be but certainly enough to keep me in comfort for the rest of my life. But I would share with my whole family and all my friends and there are a lot of them. And there would probably be more after I have won. Love, Joyce

No , Nat . I got the smallest tent in the circus , but the largest Overdraft at the bank and because of the recession , dedression , concession and confession / penance , the 290 mill would ease the burden( slightly) PS . I would sent on that Bentley for you and hubby !!!

First, i would pay taxes, but a cabin in the woods to write then probably give the rest away. i really don't need much and all I want is to have pwople read my poems - which they are doing here. Also, it would be nice to offer some to the neighbor, friendship is worth more than money.

I would be thankful I wasn't married to the president. He'd have it spent in eleven seconds. Probably, I would spread it out as far as possible among family as the federal govt puts taxes beyond belief on that amount. Our boys are allowed to advertise 290 million but take well over half of it back. In the meantime peoples losses total ove 600 million. Gotta love it.

PD-That is awesome! I know you would give everyone PMs-that is so cool. Could I get a little place on the ocean too? With a dock? You and your man could come visit anytime. And I'll even decorate a room in Packers colors. What do you say? Aaron Rodger themed curtains....
