Not your decision; the IRS will tell you where the money is going to go.

2002-12-22 08:29:37 AM  
I would buy the Casino Royale Casino in LAs Vegas. And the Montreal Expos.
2002-12-22 08:29:46 AM  
HappyDaddy, the Republican National Committee earns far more than that by lying to people every year saying low taxes are good, remember?
2002-12-22 08:30:35 AM

2002-12-22 08:35:01 AM  
I would buy you a K-car; a nice, Reliant automobile.
2002-12-22 08:35:31 AM  
Lessee...concrete dome houses for the family, new cars all around, college for my children and my sister's, quite a bit to charity, and then...Florence.
2002-12-22 08:37:04 AM  
Put it towards one of my childrens' college, and then start making children.
2002-12-22 08:37:16 AM  
i would buy 280 million lottery tickets
2002-12-22 08:37:48 AM  
I would do nothing, nothing at all.
2002-12-22 08:38:03 AM  
Dijon Ketchups!
2002-12-22 08:39:18 AM  
Buy AOL and kick off the losers.
2002-12-22 08:40:17 AM

2002-12-22 08:41:54 AM  
Not exactly original, but I'd buy a small island nation and declare myself God.
2002-12-22 08:42:28 AM  
Half to PETA, half to the Cattlemen's association. Just imagine the fun!
2002-12-22 08:42:31 AM  
Would have my exwife killed, pay off the judges and cops, then have a massive fark party, paying for everyones plane tickets... Then go to Wendy's and get a burger...
2002-12-22 08:43:05 AM  
I'd build a rambling stilt house on the north carolina outer banks, then I'd buy a TriBeCa loft condo, then I'd re-create Taliesin west on the california coast with easy driving access to mountain skiing and beach surfing, then I'd get an airstream to spend the time driving between these three destinations.

I'd also send everyone on FARK a dollar, buy Drew a bar (something on the scale of Archie Bunker's Place), and make sure my kids get a free ride to college wherever they want, even if I have to pay to build a sports dome there.
2002-12-22 08:43:17 AM  
An island.
2002-12-22 08:43:32 AM  
Buy an Abrams tank and see how good Bills' security is. ;)
2002-12-22 08:44:45 AM  
Payoff my bookie and buy a hamburger with the rest...

Seriously tho...just imagine the taxes on this amount of money. If you take it over 30 years, that's roughly 10 mil/year minus taxes. If you take it as one payment, its a much lower amount (estimate $120 million), minus a huge hunk as taxes. Not that we all couldn't live off 70 mil, but it's not the massive amount they tell us in order for us to go buy tickets. A million here, a million there, it takes a while before you're actually talking about real money.

For $5, I managed to match 2 numbers (both on the same line, but still worth squat). I'll throw another 5 bucks away this time too.
2002-12-22 08:45:45 AM  
Get a cheap hooker.

On second thought, get ALOT of cheap hookers.

I could also use a new pair of socks.

Buy AOL and kick off the losers.

Hey! I resemble that remark! :P
2002-12-22 08:46:55 AM  
I'd pay someone to kick Steve Dulin's ass. Old Farkers should know what I mean.

That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
2002-12-22 08:49:07 AM  
Madpoet LMAO!!! You win!
2002-12-22 08:49:09 AM  
I know it's not amusing, but my wife and I would quit our jobs and take golf lessons for however long it took for us to get good. Then I'd open up a camp where inner city kids can go and learn to play golf.

I'd even buy their clubs.
2002-12-22 08:50:22 AM  
A house (small), a boat (large), couple cars and a Winston Cup team.

Revenge upon my enemies. Sweet, sweet revenge.
2002-12-22 08:55:40 AM  
Whanks Rhiannon. The plaid knickers are going to have to be BYO though. I can't stomach that.
2002-12-22 08:56:12 AM  
On a strictly serious note, with the winnings I'd get.... Gauge. 70,000 times. Or as many times as possible until one of us died.
2002-12-22 08:57:07 AM

2002-12-22 09:02:39 AM  
A $6 Cheeseburger from Hardee's, a new car (nice, fast, but not too flashy), a decent home in a private, fenced community somewhere in California or Colorado, pay off my student loans and the student loans of all my close relatives, pay off my aunts' and uncles' mortgages, and buy my mom a new car. And with the rest I would purchase a sizable chunk of the Philadelphia Phillies.
2002-12-22 09:02:42 AM  
Only a few things I'd buy:

1. Dig-Dug, PacMan, Frogger, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Juinor, and Burger Time arcades (cabinets).

2. A Skeeball Machine

3. A website for my cartoon, "Happy and Nausous."
2002-12-22 09:02:51 AM
