    500 and some million..CAN YOU IMAGINE!

    What would you do with that sort of money? It boggles the mind...

    I think I'd allow myself to go absolutely nuts with a goodly portion of it...primarily buying property, traveling here and there, setting up my family and gifting my friends.

    And I'd give a good portion to the church, in some way...not sure how.

    Wouldn't it be fun to wake up every morning and be able to do whatever you like?

    I'd keep $100m, and the rest would go to help others.

    I'd keep $5 million and give the rest away. I'd be embarrassed to have that much money I didn't earn.

    I'd hire someone to figure out what to do with it. Luckily, I have someone in the family who can do that, and who I would trust implicitly.

    I would give a lot away, but I don't know exactly how much or among whom I'd distribute it (aside from my own loved ones who would of course all benefit).
    I would want to set up all my kids, and there are six of them including the ex's two boys...and I would want to give money to my nieces and nephews, and my granddaughter...and my sister and brothers and mom....and best friend..and her daughter...

    I would want property, and property is spendy.

    I would give 1 million dollars to each of my parents and help out my other family members by paying for their homes, getting them homes if they don't have one and paying off their debts. After that they are on their own again.

    I would put 120 million in a savings account at 1% interest so I have a permanent source of income.

    I would take the rest and run for public office and actually try to do things that help the people instead of doing things to help the govt get more power or help my own political carreer.

    I would also take some cool vacations.

    yeah i've thought about it
