View Full Version : You just won the super lotto

27-08-03, 17:14
Let's just say you hold in your hand the winning numbers to a 10 million jackpot. What are the things you would like to do?

Would you quit your job?

Me? I would quit my job, buy a small RV and travel this great land of ours.

Once I've seen what I want to see here, I'd love to travel Europe. I like castles. And I know there are plenty to see over there.

So many things I'd like to do. Of course give some money away to my family and close friends.

Anybody out there with some ideas?

Hi Jules http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif Great avatar

10 million? Well, I'll be able to visit the coral reefs before they (authorities) stop people from going there or before humankind totally destroy them. I'll be able to take early retirement!Whoopeee

I would then live a life of sloth and indolence, throwing the occasional bash for my forum chums (in cyber space of course). I'll send postcards from my various stop-offs.

I'll hire a doggie walker. In fact two doggie walkers, one for each dog.

I'll use my new found spare time to carry out more thorough archelogical digging into chronicles! Then I'll employ a ghost writer!! ;)

Hi Tippucat, http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I'm not sure I understand your question. :confused:

I was referring to the unwanted ads. that come onto your computer, esp. those that go "A winner has been identified ...... etc:".

If you think my posts are Spam I'll http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/silent.gif and go away.

Ahhh! Did you hear that penny drop? I totally misunderstood what you meant! Doh! I thought you meant in relation to a post in the thread! I really should go to bed earlier. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/clown.gif

I understand that 'Doh' is a good, and perhaps the most articulate of, Scottish expressions!

Kid Vicious-Ik spreek geen Nederlands...other than some naughty words I'm not to write! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif I will have a slight guess at what you are saying by use of a mysterious machine...I got a Dutch friend but he's not online to be my translator. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I will take a guess that it says something to the effect of "You are really deep! Still want to win more money!" If I'm wrong, feel free to ridicule me till I'm forced to run away to cover my shame. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

What would I do? I would move to somewhere isolated, buy a Land Rover for when I can drive, travel and complete those little dreams of mine and give some to my family. Oh...I'd also visit my closest net friends too. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif Hi John. Trust me, the best ones out of Scotland are either unintelligable to the rest of the world or unprintable. Proll the latter of the two! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/whistle.gif

Scotland is lovely and cold...I like the accent too. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I would keep my job, and continue to go about life as usual. I'd donate some of it to various people and funds and other charities. Then when vacation-time comes knocking I'd backpack around the world with a friend.

Oh, and I'd buy a new car for my sister! :D
