Ah that is actually a tough one. Of course I would love to buy me a car so I can get to and from work and school. Also be nice to be able to pay off my college tuition. However I think I would give in and buy a lot of movies, anime, manga, and video games.

Get things cleared with the IRS. How much do I (really) owe and how much from the prize money I have to give them (yearly?).

After that, Red Lobster. I never been in one nor truly savour the taste of a real lobster.


What we have come to know as fake crab meat is, in fact, real crab meat, and real crab meat is lobster.

What would I do if I won the lottery?

I'm going to assume something like powerball with its 300-500 million price bags.

1. Talk to my lawyer and find out my payment options: bulk or in installments.
2. Figure out if I can receive the money COMPLETELY anonymous.
3. Consult some smart financial advisers and create a financial plan for that money.
4. Once that's settled, collect the money. (have up to 1 year to go get it.)
5. Invest properly, to maximize wealth acquisition and growth.
6. Enjoy life. :)

7. Keep gathering wealth, more and more and more, in a cycle of never ending gluttony.
8. Fun part (Join a secret society)
9. Discover secrets unbeknownst to the public.

Buy a nice house, spoil myself with nice clothes, shoes and such, give some to my family, donate some and then go to a good college.

Figure out how all the financial business will work with the prize money and stuff then throw it all in the bank and try to keep myself from forming bad spending habits because of it. I think I would want to save the money for later in life so that if I have kids I can pay for their education like my parents are doing for me. Maybe use some for family vacations.

Well, after a five hour victory dance...

I'd probably buy a Laptop as my Computer broke recently and I'm being forced to do all my achademic work on my iPad mini, which is very limiting. After buying everything I wanted I'd put the remainder away for a rainy day.

First thing I would do?

Well, depending on the time of day I'd either have a meal or go to bed. I'm far too practical to forget the mundane aspects of life.

1. Pay off loans and family debts.
2. Buy a fine quality 8000 grit waterstone and new stone holders.
3. Buy a L6 tachi sword.
4. Get a new car to replace my decade-old memorymobile. Doesn't have to be a luxury car, I just need a normal new car.
7. Invest and save the rest.
