I don't need to own its full valuation to control it.

Hi all.
I have never purchased a lottery ticket. I bought my first one today.
If I win, I am going to pay off all my family members homes. I will purchase a slightly larger home (really, I don't want a huge house) But it must have plenty of AS parking. I'll set up a college/future fund for my son. I'll buy a brand new AS. And I'd like to help as many local charities as I can. Really there aren't many material items that I want or need. Maybe I'll buy a second pair of sunglasses.
Then, Mr. Mod said we have to buy a hovercraft. Um, Ok.

I would wish you all luck, but I'm afraid I can't do that!

I think it would be a blast to set up a foundation and spend time working with charities. There's no way I could spend that kind of money on myself.

I have plenty of (only somewhat) borderline indulgences that would meet a lotto windfall:
  • Expand kitchen; add two bedrooms and two full bathrooms to my 3 / 1.5 1932 colonial revival home
  • Bespoke LR Defender 130 Tdi Crew Cab built by East Coast Rovers
  • Aston Martin DB9
  • Moto Guzzi Norge GT 8V
  • RED Epic Mysterium X with O'Connor support and VariZoom motion control with FIZ for casual home movies
  • Nuova Simonelli Musica Espresso Bar Suite
  • Total frame-off on Ohana with updates to all systems
    • A stable boy or fetching young lady to keep the trailer polished and ready to dispatch within moments, if necessary
  • More travel, months-at-a-time kinda stuff: domestic in AS; int'l in expedition-prepared Land Rovers
  • A portfolio heavy on relatively modest blue-chip investments in things like DRIPs and Whole Life Insurance with guaranteed rates
  • Establish a fund to disburse $1M a year to charities who deliver >70% to their prescribed targets
Other than that, I can't think of many ways to spend that much money, but I haven't really thought about it for very long.

Now it's up to $640,000! Yikes!

We broke with tradition and bought two tickets this morning.

Also, you probably don't need to purchase all of Thor. Airstream does about $100 million in sales per year. Make a good offer to buy only Airstream. Then you could have fun running the company too.

Maggie:

You are missing three zeros (000's) I won't spend my one dollar to only win $640k since I can't dream big enough at that amount.

However at $640 million I can dream big and spend my one dollar. Since I'm destined to win I don't need to spend any more than one dollar. Now if you spend $50 dollars you will have increased your odds to equalling that of being struck by lightning.

Good luck all.

Guy on the radio this afternoon said at $640m it would take something like 176 YEARS to spend it all if you spent $10k per DAY. Sure would be fun to try, wouldn't it?

Jokes aside, if we were to win it, there would be a bunch of charities happy.

Thanks for keeping it civil, folks. Many people are agin' the idea of the Lotto. I thinks it's fun to play and dream once in while. It's been a fun thread. Now, I wonder if they'll open the bank for me tomorrow to deposit that check?

Jim

Umm, you are quite right.

I do know, however, that this is millions and not thousands!

I hope someone on the Forums wins---wouldn't that be great?!!

Ok, so I said there weren't many material items that I would buy and I meant that.
But surely I would enjoy driving to my charity work in a DB 9.

No Moto Guzzi for me. I'm thinking more like a Norton Commando for me!
You have great taste though!
