    Winning the Lottery

    Since no one has won the last three weeks, the prize money for the Pennsylvania/Delaware lottery has increased to $365 million. I don't usually play the lottery, but bought $5 worth of tickets just for fun. In ten minutes, I'll find out that I just wasted $5. But if I were to win, I honestly would have no idea what I would do with such a ridiculously large amount of cash. How would you spend $365 million?

    365 million..................that's a million a day for a year!!

    If I gave 10K to each girl and had 5 a day I'd still have 950,000 a day to spend on beer and hamburgers.
    fark.what a year that would be!!!

    I'd buy 365 million lottery tickets.....Why not, if I won once I might win again.

    There's a Euro lottery over here which sometimes has prizes in the 10s of millions range. Everyone goes a bit silly. I can't really understand why. I know it's a cliche, but money doesn't and can not buy happiness. With a sum as large as that money would cease to have any value and would become irrelevant. Luxuries would become the mundane. You would be forced to evaluate your life at a spiritual level and what you find may well have you reaching for the silk noose.

    The silk noose will have to wait

    If money was no object, I am not sure what type of work I would choose. Being a professional travel writer would be fun, but I would probably get in trouble with the PC crowd with sub headings like, "Restaurants Your Rented Teerak will enjoy", "Negotiating with Negotiatable Ladies on Sukhumvit at 2am," etc.

    I would buy a place on a tropical island that never had a temperature below 15 and never above 30. Build me a Balinese mansion and live out my days in heaven.

    If I won the lottery, people would call me a cnut. I haven't even bought a ticket.

    I asked my wife the same question about winning a big 'lotterly'.

    Her first response was as expected. "Give some to my mom".

    I then asked where would you like to trave to?

    Her response "Maybe Chiang Mai"...

    I don't think winning 365 million dollars would change my life much, well apart from eating at nice places, buying a few luxury sports cars, and few massive great big mansions with servants and all that marlarkey, but apart from that it wouldn't change my life in anyway, did I mention the luxury holidays? also I would buy an 8 person jacuzzi and invite loads of gals round for the evening, fok, I wish I could win the lottery

    I know what I would do. I'd buy as much ice cream as I could and scoff it all until I got very overweight then I'd have plastic surgery and do it all over again!

    ^I can go for that. Although I'd probably follow the gorge-then-vomit route, that way you can re-freeze it and serve it to guests.

    No one's mentioned giving any to charity - No one's even lied about giving some to charity.....

    An alternative way to the win the lottery:

    More than 25m in cash has been stolen from a depot in Kent after its security manager and his family were kidnapped by armed robbers posing as police.

    What makes me think they won't be giving any to charity either

    Actually, now you mention it, could you imagine winning the lotto's $100 millions only to find you had put the ticket through the spin-cycle and destroyed it?

    Certainly that would be my fate
