Here are the correct answers:

1) Yes but I will be smugly strutting. Although how is that different from any day?
2) We'll see.
3) Automatic smugness, ie iRombot, is always the way to go.
4) Realistically I wont have long. So yes.
5) There is some artwork I have my eye on.
6) Most of it will go to taxes. Then I will spend the rest starting a business that provides smugness consultations to celebrities and politicians.
7) This is a difficult question. Probably Kacey Musgraves because I hate her boyfriend and it would make TLO very steamed.
Cool I have a very well developed tipping system that you can read up on here and would continue to use it.
9. Would I ever.
10. Yes.

1) Will you go to work Thursday morning?

- Yes. I won't even cash the ticket until some attention dies down and until I have all of my ducks in a row about what I'm doing with it.

2) Will you be splitting the money with any friends/relatives as part of a lottery pool?

- No, I buy my own stuff.

3) Will you have picked the numbers or gone with the automatic machine smugness?

- Automatic.

4) What are the chances you go broke before you die?

- 0%. Too smart for that.

5) What is the first thing you will buy?

- Probably a white monster. Like I said, I won't do anything until I know exactly where every last penny is going at least initially.

6) What is your game plan for spending / investing the money?

- If it's $700m, I'd invest $600m with $100m of that easily accessible should I need it and keep $100m for spending.

7) Now that you are a big shot, what celebrity will you take out to dinner?

- None. They have their own money.

Cool Will this change your tipping habits? IE have you tipped in the past and will you tip in the future?

- Yes, I'd give much larger tips. Like, extraordinarily larger depending on the service. Though if it's a schmuck, they're still getting 18%. Nice to me? 18000%.

9) Would you consider making a monetary offer for FF?

- No, Webby doesn't deserve it.

10) Will you become a Yankees fan?

- Nope.

I would never buy a ticket, but if I found one on the side of the street...

1) Will you go to work Thursday morning?
Yes, it would take at least a few weeks to get a lawyer and financial advisor lined up, and I wouldn't leave my workmates hanging. I would give my 2-weeks notice and get everything finished up.

2) Will you be splitting the money with any friends/relatives as part of a lottery pool?
I would give $10M or so to my parents, brother and in-laws (if they would take it).

4) What are the chances you go broke before you die?
I would die with more than what I won.

5) What is the first thing you will buy?
A lawyer.

6) What is your game plan for spending / investing the money?
I would invest 80% of it and donate 19%. Keep 1% for spending.

7) Now that you are a big shot, what celebrity will you take out to dinner?
None. The only people I want want to meet wouldn't be impressed by money.

9) Would you consider making a monetary offer for FF?
Yes. I shall rule with an iron fist.

1) Will you go to work Thursday morning? No.
2) Will you be splitting the money with any friends/relatives as part of a lottery pool? Yes. Assuming I am the only winner (meaning I don't have to split the money between other winning tickets), I would get 1/3rd and split 2/3rds between my parents, aunts, uncles and cousins. My friends would get $14,000 a year for as long as they're my friends.
3) Will you have picked the numbers or gone with the automatic machine smugness? Automatic.
4) What are the chances you go broke before you die? The same odds that the economy will completely collapse. Even if the two stocks I mention later were to go bankrupt, I'd still have tens of millions of dollars in liquid assets. So it would require a total economic collapse. Or for the events in Dark Angel to happen.
5) What is the first thing you will buy? Millions of dollars of high dividend yield stock.

6) What is your game plan for spending / investing the money?
I'm going leave this answer to the end so I can copy and paste what I wrote in the general discussion thread.

7) Now that you are a big shot, what celebrity will you take out to dinner?
None? I don't know any. If I could pick though: Jon Landau.
Cool Will this change your tipping habits? IE have you tipped in the past and will you tip in the future?
No, or if it does, only slightly. Yes. Yes.
9) Would you consider making a monetary offer for FF?
No. There is at least one forum I post on I would make a monetary offer for. The person who runs that forum would either continue running it while I pay the bills or I'd turn over day to day operations to the owner of another forum I post on.
10) Will you become a Yankees fan?
I would have to become a baseball fan first.



Answer to #6:
I'd figure out how much I'm going to be able to deduct on my federal income taxes from paying rather high state and local taxes. That amount would be what I gave to various charities.
The charities would largely consist of

    Any school at any level I attended for more than one year (and at least some that I did only attend for one year) as well as at least a few "hard luck"schools that are woefully underfunded.
    Certain hospice care centers and hospitals I would like to donate money to if I could.
    The United States social security administration.
    Alzheimers research.


After that I'd invest somewhere in the range of 40-45 million dollars in two or three fairly stable high dividend yield stocks I tend to keep my eye on but don't have the money to seriously invest in as well as various commodities and currencies. Not so much to make a profit on those commodities and currencies, but to make sure I'm sufficiently diversified.

And then buy a few very large houses, some very large 4k 3D tv's, a hybrid SUV or two and some bodyguards because anyone who wins this thing is going to have their face plastered on every newspaper across the country and I wouldn't want to get kidnapped or something. And I'd probably hire a guy to paint a room in one of those houses to look like Pandora at night. Because I saw an article about that once and I'm enough of an Avatar fan that if I had tens of millions of dollars, I'd totally hire that guy to do it.

And the rest goes in various banks in small enough denominations that I can still have at least half of it insured by the FDIC. Because when you're that rich, you have few enough real world problems that you can worry about things like that like a run on the banks.

Speaking of real world problems, I'd have the opportunity to more aggressively deal with any medical issues that I have to deal with and not wait until I have some free time to see doctors. I wouldn't have to figure out how to "fit it into my schedule". I'd also get a different medical insurance policy with greater out of network coverage as well as liability insurance and an umbrella policy. Because again being a lotto winner could.... incentivize people to have "accidents" on your property.
