Think about it properly. What would you do if you won 26 big ones
Make a farming commune on the biggest acres I could find and let hard workers build their own homes and barter for what they make/ grow. Probably try my hand at fixing some whiskey. 🤷🏾♀️
My village (somewhat) works this way and it’s the greatest system of living I’ve ever experienced.
This comment made me swoon
It would be nice.
buy my dad a new house, pay off all my sister’s loans, buy myself a house, donate to charities for impoverished countries, also it’s my dream to open shelters for homeless people that have therapists and help with rehabilitation so i would make several of those some for just women and coed ones :)
Spend it on tinned food and hide in a bunker for the rest of my life
Retire my parents. Buy another house, boat, car, go on vacation and then put the rest in stocks.
You mean like hire a hit man?
help my children and then enjoy life without reservations.
I'd give my kids the best education I could, set them up with their first home when they move out.
I'd get Will Smith to come and sing Wild Wild West to me in person at my house. I don't like the song, I just think it would be an experience.
I would also stash a serious chunk of it away as a fund for my husband and I, once the kids leave home, to stock a fancy yacht up with loads of drugs and expensive wine and then get fucked up all over the world. Possibly die at sea but it would be worth it.
Anything to get the little shits OUT the house so mom can enjoy life :).
You know, in the abortion debate, some argue that life begins once the sperm meets the egg. That is false. Life does not begin until the kids are moved out.
Normally I'd argue that they've enriched my life and that every day is full of rainbows and sunshine, but during this lock down... fuck... At the end of each day all i want to do is to lock myself in the back room with a huge joint, a bag of chocolate and some 90s hip hop and let those beautiful little bastards fend for themselves
Ok, so it is impossible to "know" someone over a forum, but we might imagine what others are like.
I don't know why but I have a hard time picturing you smoking a joint.
Now Fromthesouthweirdman or --, I can kind of picture it. No offense to them if they don't.
I used to be addicted (as addicted as you can be to weed) to the stuff when I was younger, as was my husband. We were relatively unaffected though. We were both lucky enough to have good jobs and we never smoked before work. Kept the middle class facade going. I only stopped doing it because we decided to have kids.
I usually am pretty busy, so I never really missed the stuff... until now. This lock down is pushing my buttons. I'm ok, and I'll get through, but I may be back smoking on the sly by the time it's all over. If my husband catches me he'll just end up joining in, and the kids are young enough to not understand what I'm doing if they see it.
We live in the tropics and have managed to grow it a few times with varying success. Sadly the only times the crop has come good has been when I've been pregnant, so I didn't get to sample it. Really wish we'd grown some this season. If only I knew there was an extremely boring global pandemic coming, I would have planted a field.
I don't know what I would do. Of course if I did happen on that kind of cash, one thing is I would buy IIN gold for everyone on here for a couple years. Even the real dip shits.
I guess I would pretty quickly figure out some way to have fun.
I know what my pesky neighbors would do with 26 mil - they would buy a farm where they could hoard 100's of animals and have their dogs barking, birds squawking, cats hissing, flying insect farms buzzing, cows moo'ing, and just deafening animal noises going 24/7. They would collect the loudest mammals on the planet so they could bask in the sheer loudness.
Create a zombie virus. Corona has been super disappointing and I dunno what I'm supposed to do with all these canned beans I was gonna trade for guns and ammo.
DARE we ask what kind of beans?
Whew I don't actually wanna know.
Oh for the love of Gyod.
You weren't about to forego punishing me for asking were you?
Punishing? That dude sexy
That was too much even for THIS forum.
The straight men who want to suck cock, the ones who like to play "adult baby" and shit their diapers, and all those other cliche weirdos are now off the hook.
Look for a really good tax attorney, accountant and answering service!
Why so grim? I have a duty to look out for my safety.
I am reluctant to admit this, but my net worth of $1.7M is down to $1.3M at these depressed Covid-19 market prices. If I won an additional $26M, I would be very mindful that you have to get rich only once. At this point, wealth preservation would be the priority. So, I would become a bond trader. Diversification into hardwood timberland, or prime commercial real estate would also be a consideration. Tax sheltering investment under an international trust would also make sense.
Just for fun, I'd buy an antique motorcycle, and probably a small inexpensive crash pad condo in a high rise near the beach in Florida. I like flying under the radar.
invest in stocks
Cure corona virus
Apart from not having financial security and having to work and living in a country with shit weather, my life is pretty much luxurious now already. I can afford nearly all the entertainment I want. So there wouldn't be much to spend it on. I'd retire obviously. I'd move somewhere warm, but not too hot, like Spain or France or somewhere (after the coronavirus has gone obviously). I don't care about any expensive materialistic shit so I wouldn't buy any designer clothes or jewellery or sports cars or any of that rubbish. I wouldn't buy a mansion, I'd buy a moderately sized apartment in the city instead. I'd say I'd then just invest the money and just live off the profits.
There are some things I would like that I can't afford now, like regular psychiatric meetings, massages, and escorts. But probably 95% of anything I could ever want I can afford right now (or after a little saving anyway).
And then the only other significant thing I might do with that much money is to set up an arcade/skatepark. That'd be cool. I'm not really too fussed about that though.
I'm with you regarding the material goods. I have what I need and want.
Invest in some of my business ideas... Transport, city services, real estate, possibly build a Balkan club in Germany, buy the rest of my dream cars, buy a boat, put the rest in the bank and anything I make from my businesses - donate for science.
See that folks? His dream cars would be one purchase.
Now just imagine, you are in this small parking garage with megadriver's dream machines.
There is a yellow Yugo, a beige 1999 Honda Civic, a light blue 2000 Toyota Corolla, A 1983 Ford Escort, 1981 Chevrolet Chevette, and the sexiest one -
An AMC Pacer painted in primer green.
Joking aside, megadriver, have you noticed some folks do drive cars befitting of their personality? I once dated a woman, for a real short time, who owned a Nissan Cube and she just loved the damn thing. Luckily I never had to have sex with her. Bitch about drove me nuts with her drivel.
Nissan Cube gets my vote for the most boring vehicle in history.
You forget the center masterpiece of my collection... the Fiat Multipla in baby vomit brown! The ultimate elephant man car! You also forgot the pink Prius. Where would I be without a pink Prius, rocking 24 inch wheels XD
On a serious note, I think the worst and most boring car is the Mitsubishi Mirage. It's a thing that costs 15 grand new... And it's absolute garbage!
Even worse than all the blob cars Detroit popped out in the 90s.
blob car - 1996 Ford Taurus, I always hated that thing.
Would the Fiat be parked on a slowly spinning platform, like a show car?
Even though Mitsubishi is suppose to be a good company, they have produced some real junk. In America, one doesn't see many of them nowadays. They used to be all over the place.
I know in some models the transmissions are junk, I worked on plenty of them in the late 90's when I was working in a transmission repair shop
Buy a hundred acres of woods and put a house in the middle of it. Then I'd help the local shelters.
invest it in the stock market and turn it into $600
You slick fucker, you! Taking your silly 26 mil and turning it into a cooool $600.
If that were to happen though, don't let it change you.
Maybe take that 600 and invest it in lottery scratch tickets.
Lol naw man, weed stocks are gonna blow up. Also they got that crispr shit now too
OH get this - Colorado is on lockdown yet the cannabis shops are still open.
(looking at each other like, "WTF, man?")
But I’d be blessed for $26.00 right now
Lots of high class hookers for the first two months.
I'd help where I could with the health care workers as well as help out others being affected by the virus. I'd also donate a huge chunk to my local animal shelter. And of course I would keep a large chunk for myself and decide what to do with it as needs arise. To spend it all at once would be foolish. Oh, and some updates around the house.
Afterthought: I'd like to develop a stage play based on my published children's poetry.
Donate a large chunk to FFRF (Freedom From Religion Foundation) so they can fight the idiot leaders in Texas who poison the kids in classrooms teaching them that the Bible is literally true and discourage critical thinking and free thought.
Oh just you yawn, buster!
I will have you know I read that response to a few metal heads I work with and a full blown mosh pit broke out at the excitement. It got so crazy that people were setting stuff on fire, the first responders showed up, people were arrested, rioting, fighting the cops, it was hell.
I'm not getting the rhyms?
only come here when drunk sometimes.
I'm not poetic and die at crosswords.
Sometimes I'm just wirerd backwards.
I noticed you answered near every poster.
Makes me wonder if you were the O.P.
I'd pay off my mortgage, give my house away, then move as far away as possible. I'd start a new life in another place.
Bet it on a single throw of roulette
Nice, no regrets, all in, man to take risk.
Go to school. Travel the coast. Buy a lighthouse build a bunker underneath it and set up to be self sufficient. The rest I would invest and save.
Oh sjit forgot all ths surgeries I would get.
I would fund and start “Ranodon’s Countryside Mansion” in Bulgaria.
If I were the poster.
I'd learn to spell.
If I won that sort of money.
There are places where you can stil disappear.
My roots are pretty simple.
I only do what I do now because I have to.
I once knew a poster named Terri. Good ideas she could carry.
Terri was a poet and she know it.
She would do something swell, and learn to spell.
Though her post were often mean, her formatting was clean.
