    At least you could drive a $30-40 million dollar car. Someone just bought a Picasso for $106.5 million. It's going to be stashed away in someones collection for a limited amount of people to see.

    $30-40mil would take care of debts, some lifestyle upgrading and a few orgs I donate to.

    I'd buy a house, then my parent's house, then I'd buy a boat and learn how to sail, then I'd spend the rest on my girlfriend, happily.

    In the words of my wise father: Buy land, it ain't going anywhere.

    So that's generally what I'd do. Search around Montana/Wyoming/Utah/etc for a good plot of land, one with some decent sized hils, hopefully get a couple hundred acres without spending too much money.

    Build a huge house/ranch/complex up in the hills, get some animals and hire a few people to tend the farms I will create in the flatter areas, provide housing for said workers and possibly some for family/friends who would like to live with me. Then relax. Hopefully I'll have a few million left and hopefully the animals/crops will turn a little profit with no/little work required so costs of living are basically a moot point for the rest of my life and I'll have enough in reserves to keep current with technology and routinely modernize my compound.

    So all in all, I'd spend it on frivilous ******** with no regrets.

    Credit Union. Much more favorable interest rates than savings accounts, which would yield a very livable salary per year just from interest alone.

    Oh, just a little clarification, by CDs I meant Certificates of Deopsit at a bank. I would have several with different terms to stop me from spending the rest like a jackass.

    And holy ****, I almost forgot! I would buy supplies for the impending zombie apocalypse. The house I had built would also be appropriately fortified.

    edit: I would also buy dogs, both adopting from the humane society and buying from local breeders.

    Firstly sort all my family out, not by giving them money but houses, cars etc... They're all happy where they are now but some upgrades would be a bonus. Buy myself a house and new cars.

    Secondly Id get myself back to college/Uni and actually achieve what i wanted to, also id put by fiancee through college as she always wanted to, but never been able to.

    Lastly invest the majority of whats left into property/Land and donate lots to the charities i support.

    I would get an E39 M5 as a daily driver. (I drive an E39 523i today) The M5 is anonymous enough to go unnoticed by most people, which is a good thing. "Sleepers" are always fun :D


    I would also get a fully specced BMW 760iL. With flag on the front (think diplomat cars) with the letters M.O.P.P. on. (E-cookie for anyone who guess what it stands for).

    I'll also get rid of my debt and buy a nice house, a guitar and a new computer.

    The rest I would spend on family and friends, and to act like a total a-hole.

    Pay off overdraft, CC's, loans, cars etc. Get pissed. Go on holiday, possibly not in that order though.

    Would quite like to buy an old 6.9 V8 SEL Mercedes though, or a 600 Limo.

    You wouldn't need to if you had that much cash, that's how it works.
