    My contribution to this place would be an epic thread showing what I spend money on and how I waste more in a week than anyone here makes in a year. :yes:





    Actually I would just buy a modest house on a shitload of acres and have a stocked 97 car garage. I'd be pretty lame.

    If I won, I'd make Dawg an offer to be a partner owner on this site (too many headaches owning it outright), and hire Lemmy to be my personal security person and charity solicitation person. With his hatred of human beings, no matter how sad their story was, I wouldn't have to worry about money going out to charities (well, except maybe for animal charities).

    I'm gonna play. I've always wanted to retire someplace where it's never cold.

    We always do a group buy in at work. Today, I was like. "Hey, maybe we wanna double down and everyone throw in $2?? Huh??" I swear to God, this was the reply, "I don't know if that's in everyone's budget. Maybe if you could guarantee a win!" :wtf:

    The only problem I see with that is, it's always hot on those places.
