    I would build a mansion with a small medieval peasant town around it and fill it with homeless

    Actually I would buy @Stale a food truck and invest in him.

    Oh and perform stand-up comedy at Open Mics all over the country because hey, no need for a job.

    I'd buy a bunch of Harleys, start a bike gang for good, and go from town to town spreading love and kindness. I'd name the bike gang the Appleseeds.

    I'd buy all of the pound dogs that are going to be put to sleep in the US for some arbitrary week , spay and neuter them, give them vetrinary care, and create a dogopolis in the plains of Idaho that people can go visit and get some dog love.

    I'd hire a personal chef for myself, and a trainer, and a life motivator, to keep me happy and healthy and motivated.

    The rest of the money left over would be given to my friends, with the express desire that they use it only for good.

    I would publicly announce that Planned Parenthood and Community would never go away under my watch and that I would fund them personally.

    Then I'd get laid all the time and get Community up to six seasons and a movie.

    how many victorian gentleman would you buy

    However many can fit in my wardrobe.

    and then I'd expand with more wardrobes all over the house. Just have the pick of the litter, never more than a few feet away.

    Smart ass answer: pay lots and lots of taxes

    My mom told me about one of her co-workers at her old job who won a $10,000 lottery ticket, but she didn't want to have to pay taxes on it, so she got it framed and hung it in her living room instead of cashing it in.

    I'd pursue my dream of writing fiction full-time.

    Having a limitless supply of money would hardly change me. I'd still live how I do now. I just wouldn't ever worry about money any more.

    I'm so boring.

    the irony is that i'd probably hit the top 50 with something like this.

    Honestly though, I'm not really hung up on 'luxury' in general but the two things I would spend money on constantly would be travel and clothes.

    I would practically live on Savile Row.
    When I wasn't boating in Oslo or exploring the ruins of Ancient Rome or eating cheese in France or playing in arcades in Japan.

    I'd secure a more comfortable lifestyle for literally every family member and friend

    And then I'd spend the rest of the fortune on deep and meaningful research to see if money can really make you happy

    I wouldn't.

    That kind of money brings more problems that solutions of acquired quickly.

    Suddenly every friend and relative you have ever known is now called into suspect for their support of you. Politics will emerge from your immediate circles, whether you like it or not, as people curry for favors. Yes, you have all of that money, but unless you make friends of equivalent wealth, hide it from everyone you know, or piss it all away immediately you will never have lasting or authentic relationships from then on. And even when you do, should you be so lucky, you will be haunted by the specter that those closest to you may, in fact, just be in it for your wealth.

    It's better to win something smaller, like 10-20k, than one of these huge prizes. That kind of money doesn't destroy lives. Look up the lottery winners fates over the years, a disproportionately large amount have overdosed on drugs, committed suicide, or were murdered.

    Quit my job, buy a few nice condos in cities I like, beach/mountain houses in a few remote locales, travel a lot and probably just become a lifetime student.

    Donate quite a bit to charity and my old rowing program and probably buy a 1+ boat of my own to take out when I want.

    Not much else would change. If anything, volunteer more with the extra free time.
