Half a Billion Dollars . . .What Would You Do?

17 Dec

by Ken Davidson

The Mega Millions jackpot is truly mega this week, climbing to $636,000,000  If claimed by a single winner, the jackpot would set the current record for a single winner.  A Florida woman won $590M in the Powerball this year, setting a record for any lottery prize worldwide.  Skillful investing by the winner could gain him or her an entry into Forbes 400 Wealthiest List.  One would have to double the original take in order to make the list in today’s terms.

Despite the long odds, the potential mega prize has men dreaming of Ferrari’s and women dreaming of  . . . well whatever they dream of when they think about money.  What would you do if you won over half a billion dollars?  A unique home in the Carribean?  Become a benefactor to the less fortunate?  A savior to animals?

In my lottery dreaming I came across this site that may be of interest to the winner:  http://www.privateislandsonline.com/islands

    Buy a house on Lake Shore Drive in Michigan City (Long Beach), help my friends & family, donate like crazy, put aside more than enough for my children, make my husband quit his job, eat organic, get some lipo, join a gym. To kill time I would lead an “extreme” girl scouts troop- I would teach them survival skills, first aid, homesteading, etc. If there’s enough left after all that, open a year round haunted house.
