The Mega Millions Jackpot tips the scale over 1 Billion dollars for tomorrow's drawing. I got to thinking, that's a very scary amount of money to win. You might think it's wonderful, but I have a feeling it would open you up to a can of worms you couldn't imagine. 

I wouldn't mind winning like 4 million, just enough to live out my life comfortably but not enough where I can buy a pet Tiger and feed it caviar on my private yacht. However, if I did win I'd probably build a compound in the Rockies, and RV across America.

I would just save it. I don't have any reason to spend wildly. I'd live off of it for the rest of my life. Maybe follow your idea vkimo and just tour the country in an RV.

Hire a fleet of lawyers. Put the money into a trust. Pay off the mortgages of my family as a one time gift. Most people could live comfortably without their biggest debt hanging over them. Buy a nice car and truck nothing crazy. Own property and travel extensively.

I definitely would put some of the money towards personal projects. I have so many movie ideas...
The part about traveling sounds good too. Today the US, tomorrow the world!

The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas. Well, of course there is! You're her. And you're still just as perfect as the day we met.

I too would start spending on personal projects, as well as several business ventures that would likely make no money at all, but would be awesome so I would make them happen anyway.

A day is like a dollar. It can be spent wisely or foolishly.

I'd donate a bit of it, catch myself up on a few medical things, one time gift to my family to build their house. Do some traveling. Splurge on a new PC and consoles so I can cover more games and expand into streaming. I already got 4 entries into it. Not expecting to win, but it would be awesome.

I wonder just how much longer this thing can continue to climb. It's hard to believe, but we might get to the point that even after taxes you'll still be a billionaire.

Retire to enjoy all the music movies books games and other pop culture I want to catch up on. Invest either in stocks to just let the money grow, or real estate to manage and give myself a responsibility job to do. I rent out one apartment already, and I think I'm a good landlord who would take care of more properties and the tenants. Unlike some people I see in the neighborhood.
