    I would buy Bit-tech, then fund its operation with a charitable trust. Goodbye ads.

    I would pay of all depts my family has. Buy a house for my sister and pay of my student loans.

    Then i would buy a destillery in the scotish highlands (Delwhinny would be awesome) Sit back drink wiskey all day long and let them do there job.

    The rest of the money if something is left would go into a fund for poor students or something the like

    You're taking them too seriously and that's your shortcoming, not theirs. There's nothing wrong with having a sense of humour.

    I, for instance, would turn the interior of my (new, very large) house into a replica of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory replete with boiled sweet boats and a waterfall of melted chocolate.

    Yeah, why not. 30 mil is enough to pay off some professors and start some worthwhile research

    buy a lot of pizza, a decent game rig, a nice apartment, and a lifetime subscription on WOW. i never played it, but if there are people treating it as their second job, i'd like it to be my first!

    buy the land at the bottom of my parents road, design and build my own house (that conforms to CFSH level 5) with GF including my own state of the art office, LAN room and home Cinema , snooker room , table tennis room

    build a good gym complete with swimming pool, boxing ring and octagon

    buy one reasonable car and one flash car for weekends and a 4x4 for when it is required

    build a Large garden complete with enormous (completely secure) dog run for my Husky (also get another husky)

    build big self sustainable raised vegetable and herb garden

    pay off all family debts

    start software development company

    buy suitable location for a high quality restaurant

    take up motocross (have always wanted to try it)

    that probably writes off the first 5-8 million and 1-2 years, the rest would be invested in very safe manner resulting in enough to live comfortably for the rest of our lives

    NB: i would want to do this all myself (with help where required) including getting fully involved with the house build etc

    at that point i would start thinking about how i could best help out charities and worthwhile causes

    I'd go on holiday - Want to go to America, New Zealand, Vietnam and go on a tour of Pripyat. Afterwards I think I'd settle with a large house in a nice area in Sussex

    As for other crap on the must have list:

    - Arial Atom, for sh*ts and giggles
    - Renault Clio Williams 1 as a daily driver
    - Golf R32 as the backup daily driver (seeing as the main one would break down at some point)
    - Land Rover Defender as an off roader
    - Decent gaming rig
    - Systema MP5 PTW
    - Systema M16 PTW

    Finally, as I'd be quitting my job, I'd find a mechanics course to do, and then move on to building a kit car, or a rebuild of an existing car.

    I'd give some of the money to close friends and family - the rest of it would be banked in high interest accounts or something similar for me to live off the interest

    1. Invest in land (ties in with buying greece i suppose :D)
    2. Start up my own video game company (or buy a small 1)
    3. never let it touch a bank, after all whats gone on with banks i wouldnt trust any of em with that sort of money. Much rather stuff it all under my bed *note to self, buy bigger bed with the money*

    I would spend weekends going to the worlds biggest cities, walking the streets in search of homeless people, pulling out bunches of high value notes and lighting them on fire
