    Re: What would you do with 195 mil?

    I've always imagined how wonderful it would be to have that kind of money and spend my evenings on Go Fund Me anonymously donating the full amount to people trying to raise money for cancer treatment etc, so out of the blue they just get a notification saying it's sorted

    It'd be a hell of a hobby

    The week before we signed Bellemy I had 4 numbers and the thunderball.The number I was missing was 39.
    When he ran out with 39 on his back I thought "That's taking the piss".
    250 quid was great but that missing number would have meant 250k winning at the time.
    I was fuming when I had all 6 numbers spread over 2 lines. The closest I'll ever come I'm sure.

    Then a nice holiday.
    Probably just blow the rest.

    My nan once had all 6 numbers (same numbers she plays every week) and was the day all the machines went down

    Notice how Sludge is keeping quiet on this thread. I reckon it was him that won the 195 million.

    anonymous for me

    Ive always fancied a " homeless community " ( not giving them special attention, but the homeless ex service personnel imho are often let down badly ) not just where the homeless can get off the street but they can form a community with help, so some workshops / office space, classrooms to learn skills, be it office skills, trades etc et, spaces they can run business's etc

    when they get a job, they can stick around if they want and pay rent on the flat / space they have or move on and get back on with life

    I looked at various places many years ago with the idea, old office complexes etc etc, I once looked at a building that was a rather large call centre , it would have been ideal, the money need to convert it to 100 bedsit rooms with communal spaces and space above was fairly high, the council didnt want to help and we were warned the objections would be massive from locals

    I'd love to have enough money to buy a old run down industrial estate and do it

    of course they would need to stay drug free and not be antisocial with drinking, but they would get help with that

    from a personal / selfish thing, buy the kids a house or 3 to rent out ( that will provide a little income for them for life ), small holiday home in Cornwall ( walking distance to a surfing beach ), house in Disneys golden oak community, clear a few mortgages for a few, spend a few months cruising on Disney and royal Caribbean ships, meeting random people and talking crap

    Great cause mate. I hope you win one day just to do that.

    This is a bit of a daft question, because with 195million, you could pretty much do whatever you want, and still have change to spare. For those who lie awake at night, dreaming of what they would do if they won, try reducing the total, and see how it affects your choices. What would you do with 1million, for example? Not so much available to waste there, particularly if you have kids. What about 100,000? Enough to retire, or maybe not?

    Take care of my family then buy this web address and close it down.

    Re: What would you do with 195 mil?

    I'd spend most on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I'd just squander.

    Mega Millions is $810,000,000 tonight. I think I could buy the City with that.

    A Million is a small amout these days, it would change your life a bit but not drastically at all.

    You'd need way more that, it could have to last 50 years!

    I think that depends entirely on what your current situation is!

    A million quid would change most people’s lives dramatically. It’s certainly not a small amount.
