If you were the winner of the lottery in the amount of three million dollars (or whatever is the coin in your country), what would you do?

at the risk of being boring, i'll say i'd save it. not because i'd save it any time in my life, but because i'm 19 and i'm sure i'd have a better use for it later. i'd like, for one thing, to open a café, at some point in my life. :-)

Bruno is 19?!

I think I would have taken a trip around the world (Using about half a milion), and give, at least another half, to people who need it. I don't know about the rest...

I'd start my own business and give what's left over to charity.

I don't know. I would definetly buy the highest price audio studio equipment I could get. With the rest, I would probably give some to my family and maybe some to charity as well.

I would also save the rest for future house/car etc.

I am,
and,
go traveling, persistently, constantly, exploring nature,
to pull other people out.

Imagine the power of thinking "I am." "I have"
"I deserve"
"It is"
imagine the broadened perspective.

hmm, I think I would save at little more than half, give a little to my family, give some to who really need it. And, when I am old enough, buy a house in Germany....and spend the rest on stuff. And save enough for uni or/and collage. AND traveling for sure. Next stop, the UK! :D

Let's say I win in dollars because the money in my country is so worthless(darned inflation), you almost could use it as toilet paper overspannen .

Around one million I'd use to buy myself a huge arsenal of weapons (two of each, one for personal use and one for museum) and the rest I'd use to start a company that designs and makes weapons. And hopefully there will be enough left for a museum for weapons (with enough space for adding a history museum and some more themes later) and if there is some left after that, Ill spend it on self amusement.
This might help lessen the inflation problem my country is having ^^ .

I'd set aside a third to start a business or something. Then I'd buy a Steinway piano, and use the rest to fund an expedition to Mexico to improve the quality of life there.

Okay, to be honest, that's more to keep them from coming here then any actual concern, but at least something would be done.

Not work for the rest of my life, and invest in some business to get even more. I'd save some for any eventual kids.

And since lottery wins are ridiculously high, I'd also do some charity. You know, distributing the riches in more of a fair way when you have more than you need.
