WOW $500 Million

I saw today that the Powerball is up to $500 Million.

So I was wondering if any of you were to win.

What would be the first 5 things you would do ?

You win $500,000,000 and the first thing you do is bike work?

That's dedication.

I would give every active member on 600rr.net $5,000

Without question.

Then I'd probably blow $100,000 in a night at a strip club.

When I woke up, I'd figure it all out then.

Move out of new york. Move somewhere warm and tropical (not necessarily remote) build a privet road course in my back yard. I'd build dirtbike trails over many acres of hills and thick wooded areas. Build a massive work shop garage with brushed aluminum walls and nice tiled floors and have lifts and pretty much all the tools and equipment I'd ever need. Have vintage and modern race cars and motorcycles throughout my home that I like the most and another separate garage dedicated for them. I'd have massive cages for my reptiles. I'd go traveling a lot and probably do track days twice or more each week.

Damn that's a lot of money. In order of importance, I would pay off my student loans, buy a house for me and the soon-to-be-wifey, and make sure my parents/relatives were all set. Of course, the first thing I might actually buy first would be a couple of brand new sport bikes, and '76 Trans Am, black with t-tops and the golden bird.

I would buy a ton of condoms... For all the honeys I'd be bangin! Haha just kidding. I'd probably use it to pay off all my parents debts and my tuition. Then invest it in something. Maybe a liger too I always wanted one of those.

Anyone know what the 500k is after taxes?

Can't believe how big the US lotteries get up to!!! 500Million is insane! cash payout is 347M i heard, Biggest in Canada i believe was the Super 7 at 50M. 347M is more cash than anyone realizes. After looking after your family, and friends, i'd be looking into charities for sure how could you not. Can't imagine the feeling you'd have paying everything off you owe and designing your dream garage i mean house :P oh the toys i'd have
