So what would you do if you won half a billion dollars US?

Me? I'd take care of the family first. Should take about 40 million for that and to set up my son. The rest? Anonymous trusts for various charities.

Do you have any clue how hard it would be to actually spend half a billion?

Go into hiding in Africa for two month anb bag the dangerous 5 as well as all the rest of the game animal in Africa. Then take care of all the big game on this continent.

After make sure every one in my family was taken care of of course.

Once my world slam was done I'll pick up the rod aand reel then go all Hemingway/ Jimmy Buffet in the keys.

Even if a good half goes off to taxes, a quarter of a billion would set me up with:

Student loans gone.
Parent's house paid off.
Buy myself a modest house in a neighborhood near my university, so I can finish out school. Rent the property out after I'm done with it.
Buy myself a brand-new car, cash. Nothing fancy. A Focus or something.
Invest in a couple cool Kickstarter programs, mostly indie games and web shows, but also inventions and technological developments.

And after all of that, I'd still have enough to shop local, organic, sustainable, and fair trade everything for the rest of my life, as long as I live modestly.

I'd also buy a plane. Like, a Cessna. Get my license. Fly around to visit family in Cali, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, etc.

Oh, and I'd buy an acre of land on Mars. Just so my family has a homestead six generations out when we start colonizing it.
