...member of the AIDSMeds/PozForums Family.  Said member, in a super generous mood, decides to share his/her winnings (and not just the news of it) with all of us.

What?  It could happen.   ;) :D

Kenny and I knew a powerball winner.
He split a $14 million jackpot with one other person.
He was around 60 years old and nearing retirement from some sort of office job.
He received his winnings with an annual check for 20 years.

This guy was a character!
His awful toupee was worse that Rip Taylor's. (old confetti throwing queen from the 1960's-70's)
He always wore fake fingernails with the exception of his bowling fingers.
Gaudy rings and large jeweled pins were a must.
A new Cadillac or Lincoln every year.
He dressed like a slob and wore sandals year round.
His house was a double wide trailer with a, I kid you not, Elvis on black velvet painting.
When Kenny and I moved in together he bought us a, um, nice gift.
A musical wind up fiber optic thingy.
Unfortunately he died a few years before his checks ended.
He seemed to be the most generous with his nieces and some guy he corresponded with who was in prison.
RIP George. :)

He sounds nice enough.
A friend of my grandmas won a couple of million and shared it over the years with the young in her family.

What would be the instant payout on 600 million?  Still must be a couple hundred million. That's spectacular.

I'd start a foundation with the goal of collecting at least a few billion, eventually, with fund-raising staff, to fund college scholarships to city universities like New Yorks.  These used to be affordable to anyone. And include scholarships for foreign students to come study at these public universities as well.

It would also be interesting to create a foundation and task force about revitalising Detroit, saving its schools, colleges, and amazing cultural riches.

I would share my proceeds with male sex workers in Rio and buy a lot of meth. I'd also like it kindly noted that I'm the only honest person on this forum.

After setting up nice trust funds for my 5 grandkids and taking care of mom & dad, I would buy a small place in Manhattan, for home base, but spend the bulk of my time traveling.  Not for a week or two in a place, but for as long as it takes to really see and experience the area.

As for AidsMeds folks --

I'd fly Ann to the next AMG, I'd go visit Jan in NZ and I'd hire Wumpy a nutrition expert, so that he'll be around for his little granddaughter.........
The rest of you??  who are you all again????    ;D

Ah yes -- condos! The last thing I would do is move back to Manhattan. I'd buy two condos, one for winter 20 miles west of Ponce, Puerto Rico in the Lajas Valley. And a summer condo in Brookings, Oregon.

....Brookings, OR???  Miss P, you could get all the meth you want there, but you would go through the hookers there in a weekend (Ok, in one Friday night), and they wouldn't hold a candle to the Rio boys.  You would also miss your fancy cheese shops.

No, no -- the hookers and blow are just for when I win. I'd not be able to keep that pace going forward. I know my limits.

Plus I'm very well versed at where to procure all things foreskin during the half year in Puerto Rico as I used to go there annually.

I'm going to revise things however -- my infatuation with rural living won't fly here as we all know I'd go crazy after one week. So I will have my winter condo in San Juan proper as it has a trendy dining scene nowadays. And I will have my summer condo in Reykjavik, Iceland because I love it there, and there's also foreskin but it comes with blond hair to shake things up. This will allow me twice annual transit stops in NYC for clothing shopping.

Well our Lotto is a mere 6 million, but since Mike (Bocker) was the only one to give me a mention I will share and shout him and Sid the best cruise ever, buy Ann everything she needs for her garden and fly her to her favourite holiday spot.

I love the idea of Jeff being followed but muscle men on Hippity Hops so one of each of him, ( a Hippity Hop and a man) and even though Miss P hasn't even given me a thought I still love her, so I will arrange for one, and only one Latino to visit her, but because it's my money I get to choose him.

I didn't hit the Power Pot, unfortunately.

I have a lovely heaven sent and generous sister and a friend near Zephyrhills and both their phones have been busy today. Uhmmmm! Time for a scenic car ride up their way. I think I am scheduled for a little missionary work in that area.   ;) :)
