Whatever I wanted for as long as I wanted...or until the million ran out, whichever came first.
I would probably give 90% of it away to causes that I think are worthwhile (Doctors Without Borders, the World Wildlife Fund, research into Alzheimer's Disease among them).
My wife would probably insist upon visiting her own country for a few weeks - as I hate going through security at airports these days (yes I know that it is absolutely necessary, but some of the checking is noticeably intrusive, and at my age I find it all extremely uncomfortable), I would try to talk her out of it. Unsuccessfully, I would imagine.
Pay off my student loans, buy a fancy-pants gaming computer, and sit on the rest until it runs out in a decade or so. After that, life will just be downhill from there, so I will then take my .45 Aspirin and take my leave.
I'd pay off my house, and the few bills I have lingering. I'd do a few repairs to the house. I'd replace my 16 year old truck.
Then, I'd put a chunk of cash into a trust to support my friend's animal rescue. I've never been able to donate more than five or ten dollars at a time, and I've always wanted to do more. It would make me really happy to take some of the monthly burden off her shoulders.
I would totally disappear, but I would find family first. I might locate some of my favorite celebrities.

If you won a million dollars, what would you do with it?I'm curious to what others would do. Maybe I just want other ideas or to find another goal or even reach for the stars.

If you won the lottery, say 10 million dollars, what would you do with the money?I would help...my church, a lot. I would put money aside for my children's future, buy a house and pay of my car, debts and put some aside for myself and my spouse, then I would spread the wealth around all family...
