    Although the chances of getting struck by lightening, MORE THAN ONCE, are greater than winning one of those mega million dollar lotteries, that fact of the matter is, SOMEBODY DOES WIN IT, and it could be you just as easily as the next person.

    So say you just won $250,000,000.00, now what do you? How would you spend it?

    So many things I'd want to do. Seems like I've said this here before, lol!

    One thing would be to get a few acres of land and build a Retirement Village. Somewhere for older people to want to go rather than to have to go to a Rest Home. Somewhere where they all have their own bungalows and there's activites and things that they would actually want to do. AND it would be affordable for everyone!

    One thing would be to open an amusement park of somekind here. We live in a military town and there's nothing for the 18 - 20 year old soldiers coming in to do. Something with go-carts, paint bar war, laser tag, minature golf (of course), water slides, games. I think it would make a killing in this town!

    Other than that, I'd want to build me a house and help as many people as I could!

    Hmm.. Invest in stock portfolios for my niece and nephews (which they can't touch til they're 30 - :D), pay off a few peoples debts (cause debt just sucks), donate some (abused animal shelters, and various *worthwhile* charities probably), bank the rest, live off the interest, and take it all with me when I die.

    LOL! I love that one. :teeth:

    I'd have to go with free and johnny on this one. I'd buy me a shit load of land somewhere out here in the mountains, and then procede to make it as "un"accessable as possible. My own little world.

    Of course no one in my immediate family would ever need for money again either, and I'd give some to the church.
