I would pay Panthro to legally change his name to Oswald Copperpot and hang out at my house wearing a top hat and a monocle...

I know what you would do...

Yes...old missile location/arms

Some sort of "everything goes to crap place".

10% to charity of some sort.

Tax shelter foundation to provide scholarships to kids to attend private school or college.

Pay off close family mortgages.

Finally buy a new car

Buy some land for multipurpose use.

Maybe a beach place...but those prices are overrated on the beach. On intercoastal near Cape Point will work just fine.

Will work as always as to not stay bored, but definately with the understanding that I don't have to be there. Provide transition phase to next person that doesn't have to be limited to 2week normal time period. Not like I have to be anywhere...or need their money.

I would probably move to the mountains, maybe build a nice house in Boone or around there. I think it would be great to design your own house or have a say so, so I'd do that, and with plenty of land. I'd probably build a under ground shelter and all that, because, why not?

I'd pay for every kid in my family's college education but only when they complete it. I've seen too many people piss away their parents or grandparents' college funny screwing around. They can take on the debt with loans and when they finish I'll pay it off right there.

I'd get some houses for friends and loved ones, but I'd probably keep them in my name and just let them live there for free for life.

I'd buy my last company's business and fire all the management and then let the people that should be running it anyway, run it.

I wouldn't go crazy on cars, just a nice BMW or something. I'd rather pay someone to drive me.

Travel to Australia and anywhere I want in the first year or two probably. Random acts of charity like others have posted. I'd rather start my own charity instead of donating so I know what is going on with my money. I'd like to find people with great ideas that just need a kickstart to make their dreams come true and have a great time watching them grow, like a flower (of course with some % of it coming back to me).

Maybe go back to school. I'd also like to do those things that no one has time for as an adult, like learning an instrument, etc.

The thing is I like my life right now and have a lot of happiness. I wish I had money for uplighting at my house and that ADT pulse thing but I can probably get those things next year.

I get enjoyment from my kids and going to the beach every year. I like to smoke weed and play XBOX after the wife goes to bed.

So maybe a better gaming system and some better weed.

Although I hate "work" I love what I do right now and would lose some happiness with the feeling that I didn't have to work.

For my home I'd:

Build a 3500sq ft LEED Certified Platinum home on about 500 acres in central NC.

Build a garden/greenhouse/aquaculture system that would produce enough for a family of 6 (even though its just me and the wife)

Install wind & solar power generation to be as minimally "grid" dependent as possible

Build a workshop with all of the equipment to build kayaks and carve greenland paddles

Dedicate ~40 acres to a no kill animal rescue

Yeah I would see paying top dollar for sports stuff. I would have a box or 3 at the Panthers, Bobcats and future Knights stadium.

Oh and I'd sit on my porch and drink a whole bottle of The Macallan 1926 (~75k/bottle).

No...this is why you start a charitable foundation and make the purchase THROUGH that. Have whatever cause you want use it and you "host". This is how the smart rich do it.
