I think If put everything I wanted on a piece of paper, I would still have hundreds of millions left over.

What would you do with this kind of lotto win? Looks like it is possible here - moreaboutwinninglottery.com

Where do they get the money for these things? And why are there still people suffering from hunger at the same time? Only talking US here, not world.

I can do nothing but shake my head at the overdrawn ridiculousness of it.

I remember hearing a statistic that 10% of wages earned by people on minimum wage in the states goes on lottery tickets.
That's an average so there are people spending almost all of their barely liveable money on trying to win a dream.

If I won that kinda money I'd just add it to the pile or buy Greece.

Amazing.. I buy a lottery ticket at new years (half a ticket even), and EVERY now and then a scratch ticket. Once in a blue moon.

Those people are better off couponing if you ask me, and then keep the income in your pocket, another way to get rich.. Couponing is another thing that can't be done here. Not like that what I see on those shows anyway.

What would I do.. get me a new cubing cabinet.. oh I would buy a house and pay it off, to put that cabinet in lol.. a regular farm house, nothing huge, I have to keep it clean too! Have it fenced off so my cats can play outside without the risk of being run over.

Give at least half to charity because I would never need THAT much money anyway.

Fund businesses, create jobs, drive innovation, etc. Or get involved in charities. Having lots of money brings an opportunity to change the world for the better in some small way, not just buy loads of stuff!

I'd go to a competition every weekend and bring my friends to meet the awesome cubers from other countries.

I would satisfy all my "wordly needs" and give the rest to charity maybe

Lol "only".

I'd be totally happy with 200 million. If you take it a little bit at a time, won't you get taxed a bit less?

Yeah, that's the version where you basically get a steady trickle of cash
Say, a million a year for 400 years?
