    You win $250 million, tax free, in a lump sum. You can spend it however you want, you can do whatever you want with it (within the restrictions of the law).What do you do?I'd buy a house, first and foremost, then make sure it had an air conditioner (tired of this heat). Then I'd pay off my schooling for the next four years, start a personal library, and donate enough to local music programs that they could afford proper equipment and recruitment. I'd pay off my mom's mortgage and get us both cars that had excellent mileage.

    I'd buy a bigger house and then adopt a kid from Mainland China. My cousin's friend did that and that kid looks so much happier. I'd want that million dollars to not only change my life but another's too.

    I'd probably swing by Burger King and get a Whopper meal with cheese, King size. Then buy the biggest gas guzzling truck I could find and drive to the middle of nowhere and hunt the most dangerous game of all...MAN. Then I'd buy an island and get as far away from all the douche bags I know forever

    Go to my current bank and ask them if they'd like to reconsider those 16 overdraft charges they hit me with a few months back. If they said "sorry", I'd flash the check and say, "ooo wrong answer. I'm off to a new bank."Then I'd move to Bermuda.

    Pay off all my debts, then my parents' debts (their house) then give 10 million to St. Judes hospital, 10 million to cancer research (my mom had colon cancer), and 10 million to AIDS research. The rest would be to invest and live in luxury for the rest of my life. Or, hell, I might buy myself my own professional soccer team. That'd be sweet.

    I'd move to Germany. And then spend whatever's left after the new house and furniture and such was already paid for on whatever the heck I wanted to. :D

    I'd quit my job. Then I would pay for the house I currently live in and pay off all my other bills. I would also pay off my mother's and my sisters' bills. I'd get rid of the old cars I have and buy a brand new one. I'd have a brand new house built in a secluded area for me and my family. Lastly I would give some to charity and do alot of traveling.
