I'd rather donate it to a worthy cause, then use the rest for, well, building a Hackintosh.


I might sound a bit selfish, but first I'd buy at least a 12 core Mac Pro and a core i7 MacBook Pro, no more hacks :(

If I had one wish that I could do with this money, it would be that all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. If I had two wishes I that could do with this money, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace. And the second would be for 30 million dollars a month in interest on my winnings to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account. You know, if I had three wishes that I could do with this money, the first, of course, would be for all the children of the world to get together and sing, the second would be for the 30 million dollars in interest every month to me, and the third would be for encompassing power over every living being in the entire universe. And if I had four wishes that I could do with this money, the first would be the crap about the kids definitely, the second would be for the 30 million, the third would be for all the power, and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year to have an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought out slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina-somebody, I can't think of her name. Of course my lovely wife can come too and she's behind me one hundred percent here, I guarantee it. Wait a minute, maybe the sex thing should be the first wish, so if I made that the first wish, because it could all go boom tomorrow, then what do you got, y'know? No, no, the kids, the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. But wait a minute, who am I kidding? They're not going to be able to get all those kids together. I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible, more trouble than it's worth! So -- we reorganize! Here we go. First, the sex thing. We go with that. Second, the money. No, we got with the power second, then the money. And then the kids. Oh wait, oh jeez, I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay, I need revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in hell! That would be my fourth wish. And, of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace.

I have managed to travel quite a bit in my life without winning the lottery.
True, I have never been outside Europe, but that is what I wanted.

Well, it happened, even if I didn't win the lottery. I bought last year a core i7 MacBook Pro and that has been my main system ever since.

Did I win the lottery, I would try to build termonuclear reactor. And after this, I would buy an oil company such a ExonMobil, BP and Gasprom.

1) Pay off debts of direct family members
2) Pay off our car and buy a new Subaru Outback
3) Buy land in Montana (link) and build a renewable-energy powered home
4) Buy some Apple shares (mostly to attend meetings...lol)
5) Invest in 3D Printing Technology (are you ready for that market to explode? It's about to.)
6) Buy any new G5/Mac Pro enclosures I can and give them away at random to modders
7) FINALLY mod a NeXT Cube for mATX
8) Live off of interest

Oh, and of course get all my teeth replaced with diamonds and buy a gold macbook pro! What was that? Win the lottery, not become a giant douchebag? Fine. Just the teeth then.

I have really not much desire for a huge amount of money.
As it has been already said, money can't buy what matters most, for instance:

1)Health if you have certain illnesses (I suffer from CFS)
2)Make you any younger
3)A nice, loving partner who isn't only after your money.


For 1.
Money help your daily life easier than hard ship on earning money.
Food bright good health or bad one.
i try Ohsawa vegan, not whole thing but I see i got better than before atleast to cold and flu in the mean time.
i saw other one is treated from cancer, tumor, diabidet...
For2 , that is the fact you are aged then yesterday, so people said you are younger than tomorrow.

If no more hack mac, it kill my hobby.
If I won one, I would help the one need as money, as opinion by me, not througth any charity.

I might sound a bit selfish, but first I'd buy at least a 12 core Mac Pro and a core i7 MacBook Pro, no more hacks :D

Current mac pro can't expand to the motherboard like used to be, can you live with that ?or you get thunderbold Peripheral.
If no more hack mac, it kill my hobby
