    $100M free and clear, deposited within the confines of my bank account...wow. Where to start.


    First thing? Have a check drawn payable to the Church we sometimes go to - they have $900,000 left on the loan for their construction. I'd take care of that right-quick.

    99,100,000 left.

    I'd post up a thread, every USMB (or any forum I'm on) who sent me a PM that day would get $10,000 via paypal. Say, 200 ppl PM me, that's 2,000,000

    97,100,000 left.

    I have 1 brother I'd give $5M to
    I have 1 brother I'd give annual checks of $50K to.
    I have another brother I'd pay all his living expenses (to save tax payer (SS)money) + $1500/month for spending money.
    Mary has 1 sister we'd give $5M to
    Mary has 1 sister we'd give ANOTHER $5M to (between she and my brother (to whom she is married) they'd have 10M)
    Mary has 1 sister we'd give $2.5M to
    Mary has 1 sister we'd give $2.5M
    Mary has 1 brother we'd give $5M to

    Mary's folks - $2M (if they'd take it)
    My Dad - $2M - if he'd take it
    My Step Dad - $1.5M (My mom would want more)


    That'd leave us about $40M to play with...

    :)

    More later!

    :)

    Hmmm...

    I don't know the amounts,but my two brothers,and sister,mom,stepdad and dad and stepmom would never have to worry about money again. That goes for Kevin's sis(khaf) and her signifigant other,his mom and stepdad,and dad,of course.

    I would give a lot to cancer and MS research(my stepdad has MS),animal charities,and church.

    Of course I would have to buy a big house,a nice SUV,Kevin one of those big pick up trucks he wants,sock a bunch away for the kids!!

    I would also open an animal rescue-a no kill,nice animal resue on a ton of land!!!

    i don't have any dollar amounts in mind, but i would:

    -quit my job immediately
    -pay off all debt we owe
    -set up trust fund for my child(ren)
    -put the addition i want on the house and garage
    -buy about 100 acres and set up my own riding stables/school
    -build a warehouse to store collector cars that i want to buy
    -buy a Delorean and reconstruct the time machine (i know it won;t really work) from Back the the Future
    -complete my collection of Monte Carlos and Mustangs---own one from each decade they were made, as well as the monte carlo special editions (Earnhardt, Gordon, and now Tony Stewart)
    -pay off all debt that family and friends have, and retire them all
    -buy my sister any car she wants, and pay for her college if she goes
    -give my grandparents a trip around the world
    -i guess i would have to let my hubby buy the ATV he wants....sigh
    -give my aunt a full sponsorship in her snowmobile racing (she got 1st place last week)

    when all that is done, i would become a foster mom for kids who need someone to love them

    So....with $40M left.... :)

    $2.1M

    What my Bathroom would be like

    [​IMG]

    Home Gym for my wife :) :p

    [​IMG]


    I'd drive:

    GT3

    and

    S7

    and

    Enzo

    and

    Z06

    and

    F150

    and

    ScoutII

    And likely

    MachI


    My wife would drive:

    Expy

    Rough estimate:

    That'd consume $4M - cars and home.

    :)

    I'd buy a business or two that I didn't care for and run them into the ground, just for kicks.

    Then buy a house with a guest house for Darin and Mary, a few cars, hire a few women to work around the house to do things my wife doesn't do. Possibly hire a pool boy to entertain my wife and Mary while Darin and I take trips to Vegas and Thailand.

    Then whatever is left will be split between a savings account, investments and beer.
