If you won $5 million dollars what would you do with it. Like how big would your house be, kinds of cars you would buy, anything else.

Prolly buy a 4-3 house with this view somewhere between Half Moon Bay and Santa Cruz.

Invest in some annuity and live off of the other half.

To start with, I would pay off all the debts in my family, mortgages etc., I would invest for sure!! Then I would buy an SUV, top of the line electronic equipment, definitely go on a long trip, not sure where, but anywhere but here. I think I would charter a plane, then there wouldn't be any hassles with line-ups etc., after all that, I would just let my money do the talking!!!! :laugh:

I'd get a nice condo, pay off my debit (and my fam's).

Get tickets packs to the Raps, Jays and Argo's (I don't buy Leafs tickets but that's another issue). I'd get married and throw a huge party. Buy a car for my g/f, I wouldn't want one though, I'd rather take a cab.

Then I'd just write.

Damnit, now you got me dreaming.

Dude, $5 million isn't going to get much. The ACC cost $265 million to build, so maybe you could get your own snack bar?

I'd also buy a large chunk of land in a quickly deveopling area to just let it sit and stay as nature (or until it's worth so much I can't say no).

I like the idea of buying / running my own conservation center and campsite. That would be pretty cool actually ...

That's a good idea.

Also whenever possible I'd eat at buffets.
