UFIA counts as a surprise, right?
 
2012-06-02 11:01:45 PM
Wow, instagreen? Someone's upping their greenlight count ^-^
 
2012-06-02 11:02:25 PM
yes



/and no
 
2012-06-02 11:03:22 PM
I know a couple people I'd love to walk up and give a $10,000 check to
 
2012-06-02 11:03:25 PM
Tell no one. Hire the best people to help me handle that amount of money. Hook up my family on the low down. Travel the planet.
 
2012-06-02 11:03:39 PM
Why can't I do both?
 
2012-06-02 11:04:28 PM
Maybe a little. But that's how lottery winners go broke, so I wouldn't be paying off people's houses, I would be buying them ice cream. I would take the lump sum, throw it in a high yield account and use only the interest. Boring and responsible.
 
2012-06-02 11:05:30 PM
ok if I had assloads of cash, yah, I can think of a few folks to throw some money at and let them enjoy it.

and take a band or two I know out on tour - just would hope no one chokes on vomit or explodes behind the drums....again...
 
2012-06-02 11:05:46 PM
I know Roook would love to walk up and hand me a $10,000 check
 
2012-06-02 11:06:26 PM
I wouldn't just give it away. I'd pay off stuff for people I know. Well, a few of them. I'd get a decent house, but nothing insane. Set up trusts. Then be an emergency foster mom for babies born addicted to drugs or alcohol, and to abused toddlers, like I've always wanted. And when I didn't have the babies, I'd grab some people and go traveling. Probably take the plunge and get married.
 
2012-06-02 11:08:05 PM
Depending on how much I won I'd share with my son, sister and niece. I'd also donate to Greenhill Humane Society & Lane County Food Bank.
 
2012-06-02 11:08:12 PM
I'd buy Drew more beer... as well as whoever's insta-greening weird shiat.

MissFeasance: I know Roook would love to walk up and hand me a $10,000 check


haha. yes definitely :)
 
2012-06-02 11:09:14 PM
I'd donate it all to myself.
 
2012-06-02 11:11:58 PM
I would pay off one debt for each family member, be it a car loan, home loan, student loans, whatever they picked. I would then go to the local homeless shelter and ask them what they needed help with. If I had any left over, I would probably buy a new car for myself.
 
2012-06-02 11:12:41 PM
C.

Definitely C.
 
2012-06-02 11:14:27 PM
I'd probably buy some stuff.
 
2012-06-02 11:14:31 PM
I'd have Van Halen play at my birthday party

I owe the casino a couple million. Can you help me out?

Has to be a family member and has to be a legitimate debt.
 
2012-06-02 11:16:04 PM
I would buy my wife a minor league baseball team.
 
2012-06-02 11:16:05 PM
I'd take over the world!
 
2012-06-02 11:17:26 PM
1. Pay off student loans
2. Pay off credit card
3. Move into own place
4. ??
 
2012-06-02 11:17:45 PM
Why the f*ck would I give it away or surprise other people with it?
 
2012-06-02 11:17:51 PM
Restraining orders would flow like manna from heaven. Who are you? What was your name again? Good times.
 
2012-06-02 11:18:16 PM
Yes to both. Not all, but with some.
 
2012-06-02 11:21:08 PM

Because you are a nice person. A real sweetheart.
 
2012-06-02 11:21:45 PM
Half of it goes into the mattress for retirement.

Then, I'd pay off debts including the house for myself, my parents, my sister, and a couple of really close friends. If there's anything left start a college fund for my nephews.

If there's anything left, a flat in Paris and a few months a year just sitting in the sculpture garden at the Louvre.
 
2012-06-02 11:21:56 PM
It depends if people would be surprised when I hire a yacht and a bunch of hookers.

2012-06-02 11:24:15 PM
Yes, but the five dollars from the scratch-off probably wouldn't go all that far.
 
2012-06-02 11:24:20 PM
I'd buy a major sports team and shut it down.
 
2012-06-02 11:26:22 PM
If it was one of the huge jackpots, I would make some smart investments in order to devote my life's work to improving people's lives through charitable acts.

You forgot "sex Pete repeatedly" in there.

:-P
 
2012-06-02 11:29:56 PM
I'd give it away to strippers, one dollar coin at a time.

/and find out about that champagne room thing........
 
2012-06-02 11:30:50 PM
fly more friends out to visit.
 
2012-06-02 11:35:31 PM
i'd pay everyone's salary in my department for a year just to see who would leave.
 
2012-06-02 11:36:29 PM
I'd throw it all straight in my IRA. There, no more monthly panic attacks when my mutual fund advisor reminds me that I'm gonna be a over million dollars short of what I need to be able to retire in 2080.
 
2012-06-02 11:42:15 PM
I'd sponsor a couple liters.
 
2012-06-02 11:42:55 PM
I would pay Canada to sing Happy Birthday to me.

shiat, that's a typical Saturday....

I'd endow a chair on all the major committees in my area and rule from an ivory tower.

Assuming you mean the jackpot of a large lottery, I'd pay off my mother's house, buy her a new car, and help out a few friends. I'd help out relatives here and there, but I'd do it in accordance to how they've been before I got the money. Those that make no effort to contact me now will have no contact with me later, and my brother the leech will be helped out only by giving him gainful employment (and actually forcing him to DO THE JOB or be fired.)

I'd also buy a small home to use while I'm designing a home for myself, and then travel until I find the right place to have the home built. (Difficulty: No tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards or frequent earthquakes; must be close to a city of 500k+ people.)

Finally, I'd donate large sums to organizations like my church, a few clubs and organizations I'm a member of, and a few LGBT charities (This is H.O.W., for example).

I would pay off certain family debts, like my parents' mortgage, that sort of thing. Grandma would get the best in-home care, whether she wanted it or not.

Then I would set up trust funds for my best friends. Because it would totally suck to call up a friend and say, "Hey, let's get in the plane and fly to Paris for dinner tonight," and have her reply, "Oh, sorry, I have to work."

The rest would go into a trust fund for me, and I would live comfortably ever after.

I'd donate a good bit of money to one of the free HIV clinics. Help pay for more test packs and other education/prevention. There's a lot of good foundations out there, so I'd have to either really research and pick or maybe donate less but to more than one.

More than one person close to me has died of AIDS....I think more people would be willing to get tested if there were more free, anonymous, no-questions-asked clinics.

I'd make sure sure my mom was well taken care of. Everyone else can kiss my ass.

I'm already taking care of your mom.

I'd by my sister a house, square some debts and buy myself...hmm....paizo publishing or WoTC. maybe both.

Well someone has to.
 
2012-06-03 12:51:52 AM
I would find a way to ask people what they wish they could do to make their life better. Then fund it somehow without making them feel like a charity case.

Or I'd just buy the greatest party house ever and invite people over to clean up after I had a raging blast with strangers.
