What would you do with $640 Million Dollars?

Lottery fever has hit my office big time with people going in with groups and purchasing hundreds of tickets. So far this morning, everyone has talked about what they would do with the money (with the most common answer being "quit my job").

But what about you? If you won the entire thing on your own, what would you do with the money?

I would pay off all the mortgages and car payments for my family (immediate and extended). Then I'd probably donate $5MM to various charities I've been involved with, as well as my university's business school. I'd probably throw some money to Penny Arcade and Child's Play as well, given that both have had an impact in my life for the past 10 years.

Oh and probably take a bunch of my friends (real life and SE++) on a bombass vacation somewhere.

    I would pay off my student loan. I would pay off my sister's student loan. I would pay off any debt that my parents have incurred.

    Then I would make my friends and everybody in my family a millionaire.

    I would invest the rest of my money, travel around the world and participate in random acts of kindness.

    This, pretty much! Except a little less travelling. Oh, and I'd still work part-time.

    Also, buy a house. But a modest-sized house.

    I've never bought a lottery ticket. I'd pay off my student loans and friends' and family's various loans and mortgages, but it makes me a bit sad to think about because I'll never have the money to do it!

    I have a co-worker who wanted to play Lotto Ontario's Rock-Paper-Scissors lottery.

    S622Dl.jpg
    For each $3 play, customers select either Rock (R), Paper (P) or Scissors (S) or can choose the Quick Pick option for 14 rounds. Every night, OLG draws either Rock, Paper or Scissors for 14 rounds. R-P-S is not a traditional matching game. To win a round, the player's "throw" must beat OLG's "throw" - Rock beats Scissors, Scissors beat Paper, Paper beats Rock. RPS offers daily prizes of up to $1 million with a top prize for winning all 14 rounds. Other prizes are determined by the number of rounds won on the ticket. R-P-S prizing is limited to a maximum of three top prizes of up to $1 million and overall prize payout of $4 million per day.

    He insisted to me that he has a one-in-three chance of winning this game, and that if he bought three tickets he was guaranteed to win.

    I just stared at him for a bit.

    Yeah but then you gotta crop rotate with nether part awkward prodders and where's-the-nether-parts-again searchers

    It's not ideal

    Takes a lot of time investment

    Half the fun is raising them yourself. It's not only about the destination, but the journey to get those tongues to your nether-regions.

    the answer is clearly pay off your gambling debt and invest the remainder in even more lottery tickets

    Man I guess

    I'd buy a nice little house in the English countryside, with a large plot of land with at least one tree.

    And a beagle.

    And an entire wardrobe befitting a Victorian Gentleman.

    I'd head hunt Robert Khoo and buy out a genetic cloning research business.

    Then I'd unleash the Khoolective Khlones on the business world and own the world within my 5 year plan.
