I would travel around the world and go to secret islands that nobody knows about. Also i would do study abroad and move somewhere different every semester. i would buy a small house in italy,and specially Brazil. not in rio de jainero but somewhere where is not so rich and humble people and their has to be a beach.........

I would buy a huge chunk of land in Ireland or an island in the Carribean and turn it into a little commune dedicated to the arts and sport. We'd set up a professional football team and compete in whatever league would have us. We would win that league.
There'd be dedicated writing, painting and performance groups which would tour the world every couple of years or so. The Sunday Times Magazine would do a feature on me.
Me and my ladyfriend would live in a big house on the beachside of the island/site and tend to our garden with our foodie friends. I would watch football whenever I wanted to. There would be no soaps.
Everyone on the island would be equal. But I would be more equal than everyone else.
My children would go on to become leaders in Science,Literature, Arms Dealing (I was never too sure about that one, even when he was a baby) and Ken Jnr would captain Ireland to a World Cup.

I would also pay my Dads bail.

And maybe have a party

What would I do? Give some play money to my family, buy a nice townhouse just outside of Washington, DC, pack up my backpack, and travel for however long I felt like it! *heads to the nearest Giant and buys a lottery ticket*

I would travel a lot, help out family and give to animal charities-especially a greyhound trust! i would prob have a few places dotted about the world-fly by private jet!-wouldnt get so nervous then!!

I would try and get the most out of the money-and really live life to the full, i wouldnt go shouting out about my win-coz people treat you differently if youve got money!

Life is all about making the most of things-i can be such a hypocrite at times-if only i took my own advice and chilled that little bit more!-i'm working on it!

if i won a couple mil. i'd firstly pay off my student loans and VISA bill, then i'd invest a bunch...likely in property, buy a couple of caribbean resorts or something...maybe in Belize...then i 'd always have an income.
i'd travel around and watch all the concerts i wanted to, first row or close enough to see nose hairs.
i'd have a child, try to teach him/her good values and ethics, how to work for money etc...(unlike mommy who got lucky and won some!!lol!)
i'd go to live in India for a while, see Goa, maybe work with some of the volunteer programs that are out there, the only thing stopping me right now is my bills.
i'd travel myself out and then buy a small tropical island and a houseboat and just sail around and live in seclusion or with my harem of men, and donate money and time every once in a while to good causes...
hmmmm...or i'd buy a small island and turn it into a very chic resort...anyone heard of Exit to Eden?!!!!

lots of travel, lots of fun, and helping make people happier.

If I won enough to do this, I'd invest it, retire, live off the interest, and of course travel.

But then again gambling doesn't like me so I'll go for the safer option of getting my MBA and making a 6-figure salary.

Big mansion where all my friends could come and perform their various music talents. When we're bored with that, we'd zapp off in the jet to my private island. The food and drink would be just as we all like it - with waterbeds for everyone.
Oh - and I'd build a water purification pipeline across Africa. Job done.
