    Open a menswear shop and employ people from style forum to make it one of the best damned shops in the world.

    Do they really tax you on lottery winnings? I don't think that happens in the UK. Still 5 million really is an amazing life changing amount.

    I think I'd drive an Aston Martin, wear exceptionally cool clothes, have a personal shaolin monk kung fu instructor, and buy a house like the one in Batman Begins (I'd probably need more than 20 million for that though).

    You can get a Batman-sized house in Indianapolis along Meridian Street for under 2 million. But then you're fighting crime in Naptown.

    LOL.

    Luckily, you can buy you're own Batmobile for just over a million:

    You can call it many things, but POS is not one of them. Its not the car's fault most American roads suck.

    It is a pos.
    It is the fault of the car that the roads suck.

    Like I said...

    I would give almost anything for SoFLA to get roads like the ones they have in Germany, man those things are perfect.

    That's an awesome car, but this is more like it... [​IMG] I'd definately buy one with $20 million if they were actually in production.

    I would fund the development of a filter that works on quoted posts, too.

    I would buy houses/penthouses in Tokyo, Bangkok, San Fran, Seattle, NYC, Venice, Paris, Amsterdam, Athens, Rio, London, and somewhere in the Carribean. I would then rent them out to luxury/business/celebrity clients, and travel around the world for the rest of my life, always having somewhere to stay.

    Thats fine, I'd rather not "settle down" and have 12 houses around the world available for the whims of my wanderlust. With 20 million, I could spend an average of a million a home, and still have enough left over to indulge myself within reason. Plus I'd have income from whatever properties I'd rented out at the time.
    It would be a blast.

    I would buy a modest place in San Francisco, another in Tokyo, fix my car, pay my debts and throw the rest in savings and investments. The idea of having that much money is pretty absurd to me. I actually like being poor. I suppose I'd just throw it in some savings or something so that I never had to stress about affording college for my kids or whatever.

    I'd invest it all for income.

    I'd never ride another train again so long as I live, so help me God.

    I'd drive a white Maserati Quattroporte Sport GT.

    I'd spend time surfing and kayaking.

    I'd treat my family and friends very well indeed.

    I'd indulge my inner dandy.

    I'd endow a scholarship at my Alma Mater.

    I'm fairly frugal. I would buy a nice watch (Breguet moonphase or Patek 5055) and several MTO EGs. I would give money to my sister to buy a brownstone in Brooklyn and to my folks to take a cruise around the world. The rest, I would give to charity and invest.

    Big, beautiful, comfortable, luxurious sailboat.

    Invest the rest.

    Go sailing to nice places forever.
