I'm sure this has been hit before, but I don't care. I'm bored and drinking and I want to see what you fuckers are thinking.

The Nebraska winners of the Powerball are expected to take home about $15 million apiece, after taxes. What would you do with that kinda cash?



Me?

I have no real desire for full-auto weapons and the attendant hassle, but suffice to say I would have guns......many guns. I'd also buy myself a chunk of land right here in my own town and build a damn nice SHTF house and all the attendant SHTF accessories. I don't think my life would change much; I'd still ride bikes, play with trucks and shoot my guns, but I'd sure as hell quit my job and do those things full-time!

only after buying several transferable NFA weapons.

do my best to spend it before I die, of course I'd probably die the moment I cashed the check.

I would set up a foundation whose sole purpose would be to buy up huge chunks of the finest land in the USA and post it all "Hunting Only". The land would be patroled by goons whose job it would be to make sure any antis that trespassed were beaten soundly about the face and neck and then arrested after they displayed threatening behavior.

Buy a small 50 acre or less island in the Pacific Ocean and build my own nation. That would include an army, and a casino for generating future revenue.


Combloc Mi-24s can be had for 750k in good condition.

I would buy every gun I've ever wanted. I would start up or buy my own mixed martial arts company to promote fights. This fighters would fight in a cage just like the UFC. I would give money to charities too.

invest so that I got a million or more per year in interest
only spend the interest, and likely most of that would get reinvested

Buy a lobbyist and a local politician. Or maybe have them, uh, beaten severely.

Invest, invest, invest.

We'd probably live somewhat modestly (multiple homes in different parts of the country, though) and not be too spend-happy. I'm sure we'd put our kids in the finest schools available and I'm equally sure that we'd travel some.

I'd like to think that as our investments grew we'd set up educational trust funds and try to do some good with the money.

I'm sure my firearms collection would grow, but the one thing I'm absolutely sure of is that I'd play a shitload of golf (4-5 days a week).



Excuse me whilst I return to my fantasies...

1. Most would be investments.
2. Buy a house with own 600yd rifle range.
3. Continue to work.
4. Go to the Bunny Ranch.
5. Ammo: lots of ammo.
6. Buy a SPR and maybe another handgun, but that's it (not a collector, just a user)

Invest the vast majority of it. Probably set up some sort of perpetuity for myself with modest annual payments that would be inherited by next of kin. I’m an undergrad now, so I have my whole life ahead of me to fund.

ETA- I would invest most in investment grade bonds, some stocks, gold next time it drops precipitously, and government bonds.

Take my mother on the vacation to Australia she's always wanted.

Invest $5mil of it just in case I get too hog wild with the 500+ acres in the Northwest I would buy to build my own personal mansion and shooting range (for all the Class III weapons I'd be getting).

I mean, you're already relaxed, and you can only read so many magazines.

I'd probably share a good bit of it w/ family in some clandestine fashion (read so the SOBs would not be able to ask me for any more). I was thinking that if I were to arrange to have all of their debts paid in full, then give them a lump sum (a modest sum) to do whatever the hell they pleased with and topped off w/ a family educational trust fund for the progeny to use in perpituity (in-state tuition + a stipend tied to their working a part-time job/volunteering & maintaining a solid 3.0 GPA or better) that would be pretty cool. I should have enough left over to never have to worry about working again and to buy a pretty nice lifestyle to boot.

Start off making receivers for guns like HK's, SG550's, FNC's, Galil's, AR's, AK's, AUG's, and other EBR's. Eventually I'd have my own line of handguns, pistol caliber carbine, and rifles when I got profitable enough.

I'd own my own bar and grill so I had a place to hang out at.

I'd have a giant automotive shop doing such things as restorations, performance parts sales, and engine builds. (Already have this, but I'm thinking on a larger scale.)

I'd also invest in stocks in some way shape or form.

A nice house, some nice cars, and enough guns to make Reed Knight cry. (Yeah right.)

Invest it until I was uber-rich and then buy my own island. Make my own country and then get rid of all the dumb-ass laws that we have here. Child support, alimony, etc do not exist. Gun laws do not exist. No illegal immigrants.

If you threw the $15mil in a 4.5% savings account (like ING Orange), you could spend $1,800 a day, completely off the interest alone, and never touch the $15 mil itself.
