    Why would you sell your buses?.....Just walk away, or give the company to the employees.

    I'd head to Spain and sit on a yacht in a bay somewhere.

    I've already told the wife she could have a million dollars hush money if I won.

    Me? Pay off the house mortgage, drive down to John Andrews Ford, buy an FPV GT, maybe throw a party on Saturday/next Saturday, dump 90% of the winning in a high-interest bank account.

    One can always dream.....
    Meh....

    From $30m you could live off the interest from the interest.

    Construct a windowless and sound proof apartment with many many fiber connections with many different ISPs, and a door used for delivering pizza/new pc components and game myself to death.

    Nissan GTR R35 and a nice house. Pay off a few people's morgages, new cars here and there for a few people... Could give a lot of money away and not lose money, due to the insane interest.

    The house would be stocked with the most intense selection of alcomahol you can imagine.

    Then put the rest in a nice savings account, keep working and live it up off the interest. Set for life.

    And I'm pretty keen on DH's fiber idea too.

    Also would do a trip round the world while I'm still young, focusing on eastern and central Europe, as well as the States, mainly LA, San Fran and Vegas.

    I've resisted the urge to buy a ticket so far. 2.9 million tickets were sold for last week's draw, that is an insane number.

    Put into high interest monthly account.
    Each month, take 10-20k and donate to various charities. e.g Variety, Cancer Soc. as well as places like the Auck City mission and the foodbanks.

    Good for you Bob_Doe_nz.

    It interests me how many people don't need the money because they just suggest things like expensive holidays, excessive purchases (guy on TV wanting a jet plane) and so on.

    Me I'd pay parents mortgage off, and give enough so mother could stop working and pay for things they currently have to borrow for and so she could go back and visit the home country if she still wanted to.

    And buy son a house.

    And pay off best friends mortgages and give her enough so she could buy her workplace which is for sale.

    Parties and stupid purchases don't even come into my ideas of it.

    Plus I'd donate to some certain charities too.

    Nor would I move to some other country.

    I've always wanted to convert an old castle...

    Might have to settle for a tower instead.
