    What awesomely ridiculous crap would you buy if you hit the lottery?

    A dispatcher on my job hit the lottery for almost [B][U][COLOR="DarkGreen"]3 million [/COLOR][/U][/B]a few years ago- he didn't quit, in fact he still works two jobs and the wife works full time. His one 'extravagant' purchase was a new Camry. Talk about boring...

    What would you buy if you won a few million? It's a given you'd all take care of family and current debts...I'm talking expensive toys.

    I think I'd be like that guy. But a Camry.

    Maybe a boat but nothing crazy.

    I live in a town that has a general store, post office and a beerbar.
    Gas is about 20 miles away, so I would invest in a gas station as well as small mechanic work and tire repare. I would make money, doing this service. As well as helping my community.

    1) Helicopter flying lessons - something I've always wanted to do.
    2) 1996 Ford Bronco (Eddie Bauer) and completely re-do everything
    3) Huge side box smoker
    4) Case of Bushmills 1608
    5) Knock down a bunch of bushes and stuff in the backyard and put down a legit bocce court

    For starters.

    An apartment looking over Central Park in Manhattan, obviously I would have to hit the mega million, because 2-3 million won't but you a closet in Manhattan.

    I would buy a fancy log-cabin over looking the water. But yeah, I would still work too.

    I'd take care of my parents and brother and then save the rest for my children.

    I'd only buy a boat for myself.

    First thing I'd do is fly out all of my friends and some of my family to Vegas for a huge party weekend......If I survive that ;) I'd probably end up buying a nice boat and some jet skis......I'd then pay off my parents' house mortgage and help any close friends/family if they were in a little financial trouble

    I wouldn't really buy anything else major, but I'd definitely go to every Jets game home and away for the rest of my life, and probably try to attend any and all other sports games live that interest me

    I have already planned this out

    A) first call is to my wife. 2nd and 3rd is to my accountant and lawyer. Before I would even accept the money I would have 4 trusts set up - one for my wife and I & then one for each of my kids

    B). First call after that is to the Jets for Coaches Club seats

    C) Buy a house in the Pacific Northwest along the coast.

    D) buy triple tax free muni bonds and live off the interest
