    Pay off my house, fix a few things and probably go on a few extra hunting trips each year. Most of it though I'd put in a conservative investment vehicle and use the 25 or 30K of annual interest augment my normal pay.

    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Always wanted an 1895 Morgan silver dollar, that and an 1893-S and I will have a complete set. Plus it would be fun to restock the food banks at the churches in town.

    Rent an excavator and raze my house. Sell my lot to a developer. Pay off the mortgage for my Sister's place.

    Drive around Idaho and Montana until I found the perfect land and buy it. Twenty to eighty acres. Pay for everything with cash.

    Some top notch arms. Something exotic in 12G. Two servicible Broom Handle Mausers with wood stocks in 9mm and M1 Carbine. A 1911 or 2 would find it's way to me. Optics for everything. Plus spares.

    After I found suitable land I'd buy a 5YD dump truck, trailer and Case 580L. Develop my new place as off grid and secure.

    I'd buy myself a new fun truck. A 4x4 Diesel Unimog would fit the bill quite nicely. A [I] Rokon 2 wheel drive off road bike. This machine is a Ural motorcycle on STEROIDS!!! You can get a sidecar with a drive axle, it floats, the hubs carry extra gas.

    I would entertain the notion of taking a wife as long as she can cook.

    Build an off the grid home in the middle of nowhere (with a shooting range of course) - and drop out of society - just like a real hippie.

    Hmmmm. After rendering to Caesar the probable mandatory 75%, some of what I'd have left over would be carefully invested.

    Definitely my Church will get a sizeable hunk. Pay off the ol' mortgage.

    I want to record songs that I wrote....heck, I'll just build a recording studio.

    Then, as my wife calls me her "World Famous Drummer" I'm on a World Tour with my musician friends.

    I might go play some of the most expensive golf courses, with some buddies of course. Why? Because I could. If they don't want me to play there, I'll just "buy" the course for the day.

    Stock up on ammo....get ALL the firearms that I have ever wanted.....

    I'm running out of space for all the stuff I want.

    Giving the term "sequester" a whole new meaning, eh?

    can't understand why they force you to have a press conference when you win so all the scumbags can start bugging you and you're forced underground you would think they'd want to protect your privacy with all that money you just came into
