$50mil. Less taxes. Assume taking lump sum distribution, which would mean present value of 50mil based on 26 yr payment plan(Using current 30yr Treasury zeroe's price to calc). Would equal to right around 22.6mil _______________ So based on that fact I would: Create 2 LLC Create holding company to own said LLC's 2 insurance trust to pay for taxes after I die. Under #1 LLC I would have: rental properties: 2bdrm condos maybe FL, HI, CA, AZ, TX (of course not fully paid) Cars: Lamborghini VTT, Mercedes 600, Ferrari Modena and the 355 spider and the classic Testarossa, various other collector cars. Depending on cost Investments 3-4 mortuaries depending on cost. Under #2 LLC I would have: My personal home My personal 50 sail boat My personal cars: Mercedes CLK430 Cabriolet, Vette, RangeRover Guns: Definitely class3's M16/MP5/M60 hopefully if at all possible FN p90, AI 50BMG Two Variable annuities under my own name for 1mill a piece. ___________ Basically nothing under my own name and SSN directly. As far as the world knows I am broke.

Alright, along with the 50th time I answer the 'what do you carry' post, I'll answer this again. If I had that cash, I would buy a stockpile of hanguns, and longuns for all the folks who will wish they had weapons once they realize what the war on guns is really about. Forgot to add ammo and mags for all the weapons. Didn't mention it because in my mind it's a given.

I can't go into how nuts I'd go but I do know that my spending wouldn't out do the amount of interest I pulled in a year off of my winnings that I had deposited in the bank. I imagine I'd move to a NFA friendly state and buy up a ton of land, it would be close to a river because I'd absolutely have to re-direct part of the river flow so that it could feed my moat that I would have incompassing my land. Why put up a fence around your land if you've got a 20ft wide by 10ft deep moat running around the perimeter of your land? I figure that alone should keep the little squirrels, prarrie dogs, and wood chucks from escaping my wrath. I'd be one of the first guys in the country to become a full fledged "squirrel farmer" where all 200+ acres of my land is devoted soley to breeding different varieties of varmints just so they can later be exterminated, oh man I can just feel the heat that will be coming from the PETA members on this board for that last comment. I figure I wouldn't buy too many super cars, I'd rather build them in my fully equipped machine shop that I'd use for working on cars and trucks whenever I'm not working on guns. 22 million after taxes would provide more than enough interest revenue to live off of comfortably for the rest of my life. I know, I've thought it out many a time. 3 months ago I missed my half of an 89million dollar Ca. super lotto by only 1 number! For getting 4 out of the 5 and getting the "mega" number I managed to rake in 1800 bucks, still every once and again I'm caught asking myself "what if" with regards to nailing all 6 of the numbers. Somebody else got all 6 numbers and won all 89 million, if I'd only nailed 6 numbers of well I'd gladly have shared the money with the other winner. I ALSO WOULD HAVE MOVED THE HELL OUT OF CA WITHIN ABOUT 3 WEEKS OF THE MONIES BEING DEPOSITED TO MY ACCOUNTS!

1.) Would open a trust fund for the kids' college which would be more than adequate to pay for any ivy league university of their choice. 2.) Pay off my house and all my relatives'. 3.) Divide all that remains by 13. Open 12 CDs for each month of the year so I will always have a monthly income to pay for my bills. The remaining 1/13th will be for whatever catches our fancy.

Even with $50M I couldn't afford everything on my list, but here it is anyway... 1. Pay off all my student loans. Buy a Snickers Bar with the remaining $.69 2. A pad in Manhattan - either in the Village or Central Park West. Yeah, I know its NYC, but have you seen those NYU chicks lately? 3. I'd buy my own nomination to the US Supreme Court...and then I'd buy off the necessary senators so I could get confirmed. 4. A couple hundred acres of undeveloped land in several states...and a helicopter to get there. 5. Guns. I won't go into every last detail, because you know what I want; we all basicly want the same thing here. Racks and racks of hundreds of guns of every type...served up 'Matrix' style. 6. The best full time care money could buy for my (maternal) grandmother. 7. A 22 year old NYU chick for my (paternal) grandfather. 8. 22 year old NYU chicks for all my friends. 9. Hell, a 22 year old NYU chick for ME! (hmmm...make that two) 10. Buy my friends guns, cars, houses. Anything for my friends. 11. A large donation to the Johns Hopkins Hospital. A similarly large donation to the St. Jude's Shrine in Baltimore. Thanks to both, my health problems are finaly starting to turn around. 12. EVERYTHING and ANYTHING my parents ever wanted.

I would buy back the rights to the Little Rascals series from that [b]BIGGOTT[/b] Bill Cosby. Then I would buy my own space on a network to air it for all of the young kids.

I'd buy a lot of geographically diversified municipal bonds and rake in at least $1m a year after all taxes. Or...skip out of the country to avoid the 39% tax and move to Switzerland. Would make about $2m in interest per year on the principal saved by fleeing the country.

First order of business would be post office box not in my home town, under an alias. Privacy to a new millionaire is everything. Beggers would be coming out of the woodwork. Second, a very large piece of land on which to build the new house. Third, the new house. Fourth, the cars - my tastes run more towards Hemi Cudas and Daytona Chargers than Ferraris. Would definately need a duece-and-a-half to carry ammo to the range (in the back 40). Fifth - Jessica Alba (sp?) aka Dark Angel. Sixth - what ever else I desired.

Make sure my friends and family were set(new house or pay off mortgage, buy everyone a new car, pay off thier other bills, give them a nice chunk of cash to invest and some to spend as they like). For me, nice place in the country with a good backdrop. A few new toys[:D], plenty of spare parts and mags, a shitload of ammo,reloading equipment.A new truck and a couple of old sports cars and muscle cars to restore/customize. A nice home entertainment center,cd/dvd collection. A lifetime membership to the NRA. A nice donation to several pro-gun organizations. I'd also keep a nice reserve in cash in the bank. I would invest a sizable amount also. As it turns out, I really don't think I want that much (most of the things on my list most people already have and take for granted). Most importantly I would make sure my friends and family would'nt have to worry about financial matters for a very long time.
