I would keep working at my current job for a while - at least until they fired me for calling in "rich" every day.

"Yeah, uh ... boss?  I'm too rich to come to work today.  *cough cough*"

Give it to the poor of the world........Oh wait a minute , that's me.

Stole my answer. ;D

I'd buy a bunch of properties.  North around lake st clair, a lot on the beach in fl and ca.  Then rent them out when I'm not there.  That would suffice in my hunting, fishing, spearing needs.

Now I know why mom always said "Don't put money in your mouth, you don't know where it's been" :P

Not tell any one that I won it.

X2, but that would be hard.

I would buy a nice boat and truck, some land in Kentucky, then give my family some and call it a day.

Step 1.(Thank your lord!) Then Dont tell anyone but immediate family. Otherwise you will be badgered non-stop for money.

Step 2. Buy boat and truck, house and fill the large garage with just fishing stuff.

Step 3. Donate to less fortunate

Step 4. Buy a med/large lake and the property surrounding it somewhere in NC or VA.

Step 5. Relax with my lady  8-)

I would get a job at Bass Pro though, for whatever they pay me, or I'll volunteer there. Afterall, its not work if you love it  :)

First I would get out of town. Like driving across the country to Alaska for a while.

Build a couple of my friends a very nice church and set aside enough money for a youth program.

I would then get myself a new set of lungs.

Set up some trusts for my grand kids.

Give the rest to the more unfortunate.

And I would never forget to give thanks.

Hire a team of attorneys and CPAs to figure out some way to decrease my tax liabilities.  Then buy all the d**n land I could throughout North America(Canada and the U.S.)

Me too. Then my family (moms, dads, grandparents, brother and sister) would all be debt free forever. I'd drop a big bale of cash at the SPCA and renovate my grandmother's church.

Give half to St. Jude then buy a round trip ticket to Japan and shop until the money is gone.

I love my mom, and my brother, and my dad, but i don't trust anyone to keep my secrets but myself.

Shoot, I would build my own lake.

The sad thing is after rough figuring that may buy about 4,000 acres of ground here, and that would not even include any machinery to farm or improve it.  Either way I could make it work.

Give everyone here 1K. 

Go to the Mercedes Benz dealership in my stinky, dirty fishing outfit and see how long it takes someone to wait on me.  Then return with a 500K cash and say "it could have been yours"

Ya just gotta do the math.  Take the cash option, so that reduces it to 1/2, keep your favorite uncle happy, so toss away another 40%.... That should leave you with a paltry $110 Million.

Now divide that in half, with the first part going into a charitable trust.  Even at a modest rate of return, the income from that investment should net about $1.5Mil each year.  You can gift $10,000 to 150 worthy cause each and every year.

In my case, the rest would be split equally between nine of us.  Both mothers, the five kids, the war dept, and little old me. 

All the relatives can beg their mothers, the grandkids can beg their parents, and the wife can do whatever it is that pops her bobber.  Me?  I'm going to buy a new class-c diesel motorhome (with a single bed), a new multi-species boat (with one seat) to tow behind it, and a cell phone that can't be switched off silent mode.
