I'd still "buy" free stuff. A penny saved is a penny earned, even if the penny's worth less than its combined materials. :money:

You're married? :twitch: Or is there some extended British terminology to this I'm not aware of?

I feel like no-one has posted the obvious yet...

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too; 'cause chicks dig dudes with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well, the type of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.

Man, that's my favorite movie of all time.

I'd probably just buy a decent sized home, with a no expenses spared ultimate home entertainment system in the basement. Also, I'd like to finish my undergrad degree and get a masters at a more leisurely pace than my scholarship would allow. Oh yeah, and "two chicks at the same time". :wink:

Well, I apologize for prying.

Anyway, I'd probably actually use the money to buy Paul Moller's prototypes then give it to someone who knows WTF they're doing. FAA deadline after the next he's been failing, and by darn it, it's high time we had a flying car! :madscience:

A guy I know at work just won $100,000 from an instant lotto ticket.

The best part? Most people agree that he's a dick that didn't deserve a penny of it. Oh irony, how we hate thee.

Assuming I'd actually get it all at once...

- Put measures in place for lifelong financial security for myself and my loved ones (whatever exactly that entails, because I sure as hell don't know)
- Give $$$ to various causes I think are worthwhile
- Stuff.

What Reichu said, though I'd probably put (reasonable) stuff as a higher priority than charity.

...and then I'd buy Mr. Tines a mistress, just to help a brother out. That counts as charity, right? ^_^

It's more a lazy place-filler ("And... stuff") for "things I can't be bothered to compile into list form at the moment". It'd probably amount to a fairly boring list of necessities and hobby-based frivolities. I probably can say that I wouldn't squander lots of cash in ripe excess. 99% chance my lifestyle wouldn't reflect the amount of money I had stashed away.

I'd put it in the stock market and watch it all vanish.

Or, I would get a Viking ship and a crew so I can spend my days raiding churches along the coast of England.
