What would you guys do if you won the Mega lottery?

1) Give 10%, split between the ASPCA, Char/Meck Humane Society, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and lesser amounts to local animal rescue organizations.
2) Build the Taj Mahal of Gold Prospecting & Metal Detecting stores near the Charlotte area!
3) Start my own HD Prospecting TV Channel. (Show the old TV show "Death Valley Days". Also have news like the BBC, no frilly giggling or witty banter.)
4) Buy someplace where myself and my friends could go prospecting and find GOLD!
5) Buy a new handicapped van.
6) Invest everything else.
Unfortunately, I'm sure the EX-Fiancée will probably sue me to try and get a share! My Sister will probably beg me for money! And some of my friends will almost assuredly bug me to buy them all new prospecting equipment! (I have that now. They want me to buy it and let them use it free of charge!)

I'd go to every over priced, overly pretentious Golf Course on the planet and have a great time.

what's it up to now?
It was at $550M when I bought my tix last night around 7PM.
Apparently it is being reported that a ticket in AZ and one in MS won.
Sadly my tix got nothing.

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.
I'm more of a dumb rich guy

They of course could already be off the grid.

Skip Garibaldi, a professor of mathematics at Emory University in Atlanta, provided additional perspective: You are three times more likely to die from a falling coconut, he said; seven times more likely to die from fireworks, "and way more likely to die from flesh-eating bacteria" (115 fatalities a year) than you are to win the Powerball lottery.
Segueing, then, from death to life, Garibaldi noted that even the best physicians, equipped with the most up-to-date equipment, can't predict the timing of a child's birth with much accuracy.
"But let's suppose," he said, "that your doctor managed to predict the day, the hour, the minute and the second your baby would be born."
The doctor's uncanny prediction would be "at least 100 times" more likely than your winning.

I have more of a chance of seducing Kuechly and getting him to share his 12 million salary with me
In your dreams.

If he saw that picture of me from Facebook on Monday...he'd definitely get with this...or he'd think I was a crazy weirdo stalker
