Wat the hell would you do with that much money? I can't even fathom that much money
Quit my job. Ski alot. Travel alot. Ride alot. Travel and ski. Travel and ride. Maybe become an ex-pat and move to Europe for awhile. See the world.

I'm pretty sure I still couldn't put a dent in it, though.

I'd buy a normal house, a couple sportscars, bank about 10 million to live off of the interest, and then pay Russia the rest to take me to the moon so I could be the first to ride my bike there.

With that much money, you could afford to burn some bridges. I would tell EVERYONE at work exactly what I think of them. Once I was escorted off the property, I would do whatever I wanted! I would probably start racing a complete race season. One thing is for sure, I would ride one of my bikes every day of my life...

Or, it would be the day I was hit by a bus...

I can't believe there are people who don't already know this, but:

The "lotto jackpot" is a number that reflects how many tickets were sold.

For instance, if 100 million lottery tickets were sold at $1.00 each, the jackpot is, for example, $10 million (I'm sure the numbers are different, but you get the idea). So the government pockets $90 million, right? Wrong. They pocket the whole $100 million, and invest it in a "virtual trust fund" which earns interest. Over the course of 20 years, the winner gets the interest, minus taxes, which works out to the $10 million jackpot.

So for the jackpot to get up to $400 million or so, there have literally been BILLIONS of tickets sold. When you buy that "dollar and a dream" crap, your odds are 1 in several billion of winning.

That beings said, SOMEONE has to win. Same reason people go to Vegas. Please know, I don't buy lotto tickets very often, but if I'm at the quick-e-mart buying a six pack, toss a buck in the pot for the hell of it.

I spend on average about $20 a year, most of it on the local mega bucks, not the multi state powerball. Besides, $20 in lotto has gotten me farther than $20 worth of my company stock.

So if I win, I will buy each monkey 3 bikes of MY choice :D Pacific beach cruisers for EVERYONE!!!
