If I ever hit the lottery and are rich I am going to ram into everyone whom drives without using a turn signal. I mean really, how hard is it to hit a little switch. It is a blatant disregard for law and disrespect for other drivers.

If I won the lottery I always thought about just creating a nonprofit and donating the ticket to it. This way you get more bang for the buck and won't be killed for your money taking a small salary from the charity. Somehow it would probably backfire though.

The other day I realized something: if I ever won the lottery, I'd do the same thing I'm already doing.

My wife and I have had this discussion a zillion times, even thought we don't play the lottery due to us living in Vegas but every now and then when the big jackpot gets over like $500 million, we will take a drive to Primm or Arizona to get some tickets.

I won't stop working, not for at least 10 years. My wife will and she will pursue her non profit organization called Sin City opera.

I would invest in some race horses in South Africa and I would invest in some established racing syndicates here in the USA, just so that I can hopefully be invited to the Kentucky Derby before I die :)

I may buy a house in McDonalds Highlands right on Dragonridge golf course and I may even become a member of that club.

That would be it. Invest the rest and reinvest the interest for at least the first 10 years while I'm still working...............

EDIT: I would take the cash lump sum. On a $500 million jackpot, that is probably in the region of $160 million after taxes? I'm OK with that.

At 6% growth per annum, that would be around $9.6 million per year, reinvested. Does anybody know if you pay tax on a reinvestment?

If I ever won the lottery and wanted to give it to family members I would tell the lottery that they paid 5 cents for a 2 dollar ticket and so forth. That way we wouldn't have to pay taxes twice.

Lottery? The Spanish National Lottery a/k/a El Gordo is always multi million. There are no second prizes.
Tickets are sold but charitable organzations buy tickets and sell "participations" in that ticket.
Some Readers Digest (well, what else they got in a waiting room these days) article was about a town in Spain wherein all residents had participation tickets in the winning number... and life went on without much change at all.
