    Question The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    As many of you guys know, or may know by now, the Mega Millions Lottery jackpot is up past $1 billion mark and Friday, I want to get in it.

    Let's say you do win the lottery; what would you do with the money after paying your taxes?

    I would:
    1. Build/Buy the Resident Evil Director's Cut mansion and have my best friend live with me
    2. Have every room be a man cave, including pinball machines, arcade, neon lights, tabletop games and a bowling alley
    3. Avoid job searching or getting serious about my would-be supplement shop and live it up.
    4. Go on a world tour, especially Japan
    5. Eat healthy since I would be able to afford good food instead of just box meals
    6. Help war veterans and pet shelters through charities
    7. Buy up everything that's currently in my eBay watch list
    8. Buy a Lamborghini
    9. Buy large open land for my dad to build his dream garden, pond, waterfall and fountain
    10. Live a life where not a single woman, child, Democrat will enter my life, not even casually in public.


    What would MGTOW do if you win the lottery? I know the odds are highly against you, but all you need is that one number to make dreams and fantasies come true.

    Speaking of the lottery, today I played a scratch game of 20 Years Of Cash ($10 worth) and only won $10. I may not of gained anything except fun, but at least I didn't lose any money.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.

    All my friends that stuck by me would be set for life.

    All the people that fucked me will regret ever doing so.

    Then I'd repurpose an abandoned mine for my own personal nuclear fallout compound, with a pinball game room arcade that Unboxxed would salivate over, and bungee jumping down the mine shaft!

    Who could ask for more?
    Bundle up, boys, it's gonna be a long cold endless winter.

    I'd buy an island in the middle of the pacific, establish my own country, threaten the US and Israel with annhialation and have Uncle Sugar send me checks for billions more each year to not continue on with my nuclear weapons goals. I'd get at least a 1,000% return on my investment every year.

    Or just start talking with China. The US and Australia will throw so much money at you that you won't know what to do with it!

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    In Australia, lottery winnings are non taxable as we pay taxes on the ticket itself. So as a billionaire I think I would build that underground bunker with the house above ground as a facade of sorts. It would be out in the sticks somewhere most likely or even remain in outer burbs. I am mostly an indoor type anyway. I would have heaps of guitars and hire actual rock star guitar slingers to give me lessons.

    I don't want much really. Just being left alone would be awesome.

    3br house for myself, a couple of rental properties. I'd quit work, garden, drink beer, sleep. That's the thing about being a man - I don't need a lot of stuff to be content.

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    I would buy a modest 3 br house sitting high up on a hill with sweeping views. Put a nice car in the garage. And then travel the world most of the year.

    Just Me

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    I’d buy a nice 2/3 bedroom house in the area I currently live in. I like it here.

    I’d hire a maid to clean my shit up and a chauffeur to drive me around – no Lamborghini’s for me, gimme a chauffeur driven Limo any day.

    One more thing – a top-of-the-range computer – one that won’t be past its sell by date by the time I get it out of the box.

    After that I’m fine.

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    Id buy a reasonable car for each of my kids and pay off their school debt. Then, theyre on their own (till I die and they inherit the rest of it). Id spend whatever effort necessary for them (and everyone else for that matter) to NOT know I won. They need to learn to fend for themselves.

    Id retire immediately. Id stay in the same house Im in. Id trade my current boat in for a new one. Maybe buy a new truck. Upsize my garden. Hunt and fish more- move to being more self reliant food wise. Maybe travel some- do hunting and fishing trips while Im still young enough to do it.

    Thats pretty much it. Nothing lavish.

    Of course, what I say here, and what would actually happen could be entirely different things. Money makes people fucking crazy. Id like to think I wouldnt be, but..

    The other problem is that all these numbers are big. I don't mean relative terms, for example, compared to other applications worldwide. I mean that at first glance, these numbers represent a heck of a lot of people. 100,000 people played casinos in the city? 350,000 people played at an online casino? More people played at in two weeks than live in my hometown. There are entire countries with populations smaller than the online casino player base. It's not popularity. It's pop. Arena develulationopers shouldn't think of a single majority on this scale. It makes much more sense to support multiple user groups and game modes than to support one.

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    I'd probably leave the US and get an estate somewhere more remote, like Costa Rica or Barbados or something like that. I'd have to do a bit of traveling to find the right place. Somewhere with much less traffic and noise. I really don't need a billion dollars, just enough that I don't have to work at some suckass job for the rest of my life.

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    If I win a lotto.... Make this part of your "New Bucket List"....

    Continue to work for at least one more month.... This will be last chance for payback of all the whining I have put up with for years, I would not miss the opportunity...

    Whine about:
    -The cost of everything....
    -Not getting paid enough....
    -Paying too much tax...
    -Ask everyone to spot me money to buy something I don't need or want... (But don't take the money...)
    -Refuse to chip in for BBQ's cause it costs too much...
    -Order more company uniforms and work boots knowing I will not be there long enough to collect them. (Everyone I know has done this just before leaving)
    -Work extra shifts to complain you need extra money... This would get me to whine at the other crews I have little contact with.
    -Lable a tin of tuna as Snappy Tom cat food and eat it on dry bread in front of the boys at work, watch the reactions, complain real tuna is expensive.
    -Ask a work mate for a ride to work because your car broke down and you don't want to spend the money to get it fixed. You are thinking about ordering a new car, but they are expensive.
    -Offer to put on a leaver's carton for the car park, buy the cheapest beer money can buy and when people refuse it, act happy cause there will be more for you.

    New friends or want to be friends....
    -invite them over for a BBQ and serve meatless snags on week old bead.... Try to get "Reduced for quick sale" stickers for the food packaging and leave them out so they can be seen by your guests... For drinks, cordial (Kool-Aid) that you add sugar but with no added sugar.... Whine about the price of food....

    There is a real opportunity to make yourself rememberable for years to come with a few people that might have given you grief in the past, do not pass it up. Go out making memories as "The miserable old cheap c#nt".... Remember bad memories will last longer than good memories, make yours last a lifetime!!!!

    I have more great "New Bucket List" ideas...

    I had Army buddies who swore they knew a guy who would roll up peanut butter to resemble a turd, then stand outside the latrine and eat it when people walked by. Rather he liked grossing people out or was trying for a section 8 discharge, no one knows.

    I hope you guys win but am afraid your chances are slim. Even on a regular jackpot the odds are two or three million to one. Something like one drop of gas in the full tank of a Cadillac. Who knows how many people are trying for the big one?
    Every day I make the world a little bit worse.

    Thanks for the peanut butter idea.... Maybe the shape of a dog turd? I love it.

    Yes, I know. I don't play very often so slight chance I will win. I go in with a few others I know every few months for $50 or so, nothing major. I guess just cheap dreams really...

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    Only she does not welcome this and frequently complains about me, and when I win, it seems like a trifle. But I'm aware that if I suddenly develop an addiction, it will drag me out and beat me. Evil thoughts will soon be subject to taxes or penalties, and dreams will be priced similarly to Netflix. So I have no doubt that people will uphold the stakes and prevent the centuries-old traditions from falling by the wayside. But I prefer [URL redacted by frog] instead of bets

    This is AD's second try at selling us something. He's out a here.

    Kryptic, on post number 11, in which AmoryDonawa quoted you, there's a link to "fair go casino VIP" at the end of your quote. However, the link is not on your above post, which AD quoted. I don't know what happened, but I'm assuming you had nothing to do with fair go casino VIP. I'm going to redact the link, but don't want you to think I'm editing your post. AmoryDonawa must have messed with it somehow, but I have no idea how they did it.

    Keep in mind, anytime a member quotes somebody in his reply, the member has the ability to edit the quoted text. That's always been true. Mostly we see members perform edits in quoted text to make bold any portion they want to talk about while leaving adjacent text untouched to provide context. Not bad or wrong to do this. There is no misrepresentation. And we always have the original post to compare it to, if any question.

    Here, AmoryDonawa edited his post to add to what he had recapped from Kryptic as of it came from Kryptic. Not cool. Itself an invitation for corrective action from a Mod.

    Could AmoryDonawa have been so inattentive as to not recognize the format of his Edit screen and intended to place the link outside of the quote text in his post? Unlikely, as he has placed links here previously, we saw.

    Can't say I've ever seen this before. I mean, what would it serve? Members, if you see this happen to you or others, Report the post where the editing occurred.

    Re: The Mega Millions Jackpot Is Past The $1 Billion Mark

    Why are people changing the subject? This topic is suppose to be about what would you do if you win the lottery.
    It's a man's world and we need to take it by the throat and make it give us what we desire.
