I already won my lottery money from the State of California.  I was on a business trip, stopped at a coffee shop in Chico where they had a breakfast special.  My $5 breakfast special included 2 eggs w/toast, coffee and a lottery ticket.  I won $6.00 which paid for breakfast, tax and tip.  It doesn't get any better than that.  If I mysteriously won the millions, I would go to the Virgin Islands to find, I don't qualify for entry   ;D  Have the best day

What money? after you spent it on all your meds, there wouldn't be any left to give to anyone for anything.... if the average price of HIV-meds run around 50K a yr. that money would be GONE, rather
fast......

You really fail at math.  If you live another 20 years then that's a mere $1 million bill for your medication, leaving $177 million to donate to AIDS research.

but your forgetting....you would no longer have an income, and you would have to live off that, and if if you throw-in the cost of living, the cost of Meds, doctors, food, there wouldn't be much left in this day and age, however if you lived frugal, it just might last the 20 yrs. if your lucky.......

You're used to living frugally by now -- there would be plenty left over.  Stop with the sad excuses.

Buy a medium sized house with a garden in the center of a swiss city.  Give my family money. My brother can barely pay for his house.  

Switzerland> Fund a community center for drug addicts in my city (the government is draggng it heals). And another one for drug dealers (which most swiss people fear and hate) cause they are mostly foreigners here and dealing drugs against their will. Fund sheltered workshop for furniture repair and refinishing.

Open a cheap restaurant with hippystyle food but beautiful decor.  Start a food coop. Fund apprenticeships for mixed up teenagers cause they can't get them anymore, making their futures crappy here.

US - Buy land for community gardens in destroyed neighborhoods.  Fund a travel prize at every school I ever went to. Winner gets to travel where he/she wants to do a project of his/her choice. Projects are published on a website.

Well, I wouldn't be sad, if I have that much money to spend, and I don't think any in here would either, besides, I don't think I'm gonna live 20 more yrs. but I'd sure have a lotta fun on my way out  :D

I would have absolutely no idea how to manage that much money. That amount of money is a big responsibility because you can seriously change people's lives depending on how you apply it. I would need to hire an expert in financial planning and philanthropy to explore the options.

Beyond that, of course I would take care of my family and friends and I would travel the world.

I'm with Ford; first I'd get some (hopefully sound) financial advice so I can make sure that money sees me through the rest of my life.

Then with what's left over I'd buy a flat in Liverpool and a cottage here on the Rock and a helicopter to fly back and forth. I'd probably by a small car and put some money by for my daughter. I'd travel.

I've also thought about buying some land on the Rock with a farmhouse and outbuildings that could be converted into accommodations. Then I'd set up an organisation where people from both here and the mainland can come for a week or weekend to learn how to live with hiv (for the newly diagnosed) or just a place where PWH can come and chill out for a week, perhaps with some provisions for respite care for any LTS who may need such services. If I were to do this, I'd forgo the flat in Liverpool, cottage and helicopter.

Will the pryamid have a loft - if so, I want to be buried there - since you are being so generous -- Thanks!  Oh, and nothing to high up - I get dizzy.... Oh, and can it be on the side facing away from the sun (probably doesn't heat up as much)... Oh, and.....

Jeez , if you are that high maintenance in the after life I'm seriously going to have to start thinking about some kind of association fees or maybe pay per view for your relatives who come to visit .

I do have a few other requests - nothing to intense:
1) Off mosquito repellant
2) Skin cream - even though I'm mummified, I would still like to look good in the afterlife
3) Relatives would need to be provided some type of accomodations - any chance of building a small bed and breakfast next to the pyramid?
4) And only blue M&Ms -- don't really care for the other colors

That should do it - there might be one or two more, but we can always work those out.

I would start by buying some property and pay it off in full.

I would set up a trust to assure that Stephen and I had enough money to live out our days.

I would then throw, the biggest, baddest party, that you could ever imagine... for all of you.

I would give out goody bags, including a cashiers check for $100,000 to each and every attendee.

I would structure my finances, so that whatever is left, is given to help PWAs directly.

As Dolly Levi's husband once said: "Money is like manure, it does nothing unless you spread it around."

I'd probably spend a couple million on myself, give a lot of it to people I know personally, and then give the rest away.  I'm just not that materialistic honestly.  I can't even imagine how I would spend more than maybe 10 million dollars.
