    590m PowerBall Lotto

    So all that money went to one very lucky lotto winner.

    What would you buy and perhaps which charities would you help out? Half a billion dollars is more than enough to go around and to spoilt yourself!

    Thoughts?

    I'd put it all on black and double it!

    Edit: Maybe this site will help someone make it big: moreaboutwinninglottery.com

    I would give 10 million to British Cycling to help improve their Olympic programme even more and buy one of their carbon fibre track and road bikes.

    This seems like the best approach

    590m, a $#@!ing insane amount for one person to win. I wouldn't even know where to begin

    Spending spree first of all and then when I've had my kicks and giggles I would find something to donate to. One of the local hospitals here does a lot of work finding cures for cancer so they would be getting a big check from me. I would keep a good chunk to support myself and my family. I'd would be traveling the world with that kind of money.

    Keep in mind this is AMURRRICA! They'll take a hefty sum of it for "taxes". But I guess with the large amount left over, there would still be some decent things to do with it and spend it on.

    First and foremost, a massive entertainment home theater system, the best one in the world. Dolby just came out with Dolby Atmos using 200 speakers and 12 subwoofers to create true 3D sound, and it's used in Star Trek Into Darkness. I love sound, so I need this. And to complement the sound, I need picture. Biggest 4K tv there is.

    I'd want a custom car. Mostly interiors, but wouldn't mind having some kevlar armor on it. Basically a war vehicle without the weapons.

    A personal jet.

    Stocks, anything else with a big investment and tons of return income.

    Go all over the world. Stay a month in each country for exploration.

    Learn new skills through private classes, the best of their kind.

    Get every game console and videogame I've ever wanted

    Start a comic book collection.

    On that note, I would pay the original writer(s) of ME3 to fix the bloody ending to their original vision.

    Losing almost half of it to taxes would suck but I'd still rather get it all up front rather than over time, even if it saved money. Can you imagine if the lottery fund you were drawing from went bankrupt two years in?
