You could also buy a few of your own truck stops -- just sayin' ;)

I'd keep 12m and make a mark on the world with the remaining 100m.

A big bonfire should do that :)

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.

If you know how to spend $10 million you are materialistic.

I would buy six bitter queens and take over the world.

Did noone notice, we elected them to run the UK (so you can choose again)? Alternatively, for the cost of a pint or two, I can find you six bears in Kent who will argue the finer points of the best real ale in full leather (with caps), $20, cheap at half the price.

Hmm,

Set up charity companies in impoverished communities to teach and sustain employment through skills. Work with charities that believes in redeeming human dignity, like the Mother Teresa's Charities for the destitute. She believed everyone must be accorded the basic right to die with self respect.  :)

And of cos, animal rescue centers.  :-*

And a pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements company that offers high end health supplements to masses at near cost margins and no cost to charities.  ;)

I'm so happy I have you here to judge every little thing I say.  I was making the comment that I most likely wouldn't know how to spend my way past the first ten million.  I was not in fact saying I could account for exactly how I would spend that first ten mil.  Why I'm even bothering to argue this I have absolutely no idea.

Because you can't help yourself? Because you don't have anything better to do? Because you're just sad like that? :D ;)
