    Say you won 5 million dollars, you check your bank account online, it's all there and it's 9:15am.....what's the first thing you do?

    I'd go to the nearest grocery store and stock up on these...

    and i mean STOCK UP!



    Then head over to guitar center and pickup an EVH Wolfgang BLACK Custom

    Then swing past mom's and tell her the news and give her 15% - 20%

    That would probably get me going for a good week :D
    I'd do my homework that night on buying a cool sports car....don't wanna waste my money and buy something without much thought :c

    What would you start spending on or you wouldn't buy anything that day?

    there's such a thing as a lottery corporation that will direct deposit your winnings into your bank account?

    that day I would pay off my mortgages, gift some money to some neighbours who need it, and wire some to family who also need it.

    oh and I would get a new mobile phone so my apps work again :cheer:

    the rest of the week I'd pay off family mortgages and search for something to replace my old explorer that I actually like.


    oh id also look for a new house with a bigger kitchen.

    Spread some around to family and friends and then I'd start design plans on my dream home.

    A phone would be a good idea, what do you currently own? i hear the Galaxy's are good :bigthink

    I don't have any mortgages yet but paying that off when you do would be a good start!

    I currently have an iphone 3gs - it wont upgrade anymore, last OS i can get is the 4.2.1 - so as my apps need updating they stop working :eek:

    I have like 5apps I can still use but it texts just fine and i never talk on the phone, and I can surf (albeit slowly). I have a $45 month unlimited text & data plan with 6-9 weekday talk time and weekends. if I upgrade i lose that, but seeing as i don't use it for much it seems dumb to pay more for something else :dontknow:

    Bummer :nocheer: would the warranty cover a software problem?, or is that because it's an old model?
    I kinda agree to not spend more on something you don't really use, i had the HTC Mozart 7 phone....the only app i downloaded was maps :giggle:

    I think the ipads are kinda lame, i purchased one on release day and i hardly use it :facepalm:

    That's what I'd do with the money, pay someone to go and hunt humans.

    I'm sure it can be done.

    I'd give one month advanced notice to my job.

    I'd give my mom a million, pay for college for my nieces and nephews, and give a generous gift to local animal shelters.

    Then I'd hire a nanny for my dogs so I could do some traveling. I'd also use the time to really think about where I want to live.

    Then after the fun of designing and constructing a new house, I'd take the time to get a PhD.

    I'd pay off my parents bills, hand out some cash to a few family member, then work on finding me a place to hide out from the rest of the blood suckers that would try and take my money.
