Very fun question, Brett, and I like that you made the amount enough for this time in history. I would take $240,000 and pay off the condo we bought that's under-water; $40,000 for the rest of our debts; I would buy a little house near Balboa Island, CA for $2,000,000; I would pay off our son's $100,000 student loan. (So we're up to 2,380,000). I'd give each of our 3 children $2,000,000. (Now we're at 8,380,000) Then I would give every family member (brother, sisters, etc. a million dollars) That would be about $18,000,000. I would give each of our friends $500,000 each (hmmm... maybe that would be bring the total up to $28,000,000. I'd then be like "The Millionaire" on that 50's program on TV and randomly give money to homeless people in various towns throughout the country for about another couple million. I'd do that until it got unwieldy; then I'd give the rest to the Federal Government to help rebuild the infrastructure, promote oil independence, solar and wind energy projects, start an interim WPA CCC program until the economy got better; and support other projects like TRIO Student Support Services, McNair Foundation, etc. - all of this latter part just so the Republicans would stop complaining about taxes!
