    If I won that kinda jack, I would keep working, just like nothing ever happened. That's why I would stop off to see a lawyer, first. I would find out how to keep my identity as concealed as possible. The last thing I would want is for people to find out I had that kind of money in the bank. I would wind up with waaaaaaaay too many new friends.

    I'd probably use about 250K of it as a bankroll to become a pro poker player.

    I guy I work with won $1.2 million--that's what he got after taxes. That was January of '08. Yeah, it's gone. All he has to show for it is a real nice house that he can't afford the property taxes on.
    That sounds like something i'd do, well good thing i do not play the lottery.

    There was an asian lady buying lottery tickets in front of me one day and I said, "Well you're the only one that didn't throw off the curve in a math class, aren't you?"

    She didn't get it either.

    Re: Your Greatest Ambition

    Of the options listed, I picked raise a family, but that's really too specific a goal. As others have said, to achieve happiness or contentment is more accurate and raising a family is certainly a part of that goal but it may not be the entire thing.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
