If you won a million dollars

What would you do? Buy a house, invest in something?

Wonder what an MMAF get-together would cost.

300k each in trust funds for my 2 girls.

200k to invest in real estate rentals while the market is still down (with a little sweat equity and proper elbow grease applied that would = about 20-24k/year income + property appreciation)

and an extra 10k of fun each of the next 20 years.

1mil aint what it used to be

Not sure tbh. I always said if I won the lottery I would donate a lot of it but leave myself enough to set up me and my family for good. But as Oldie said, 1 mil doesn't go as far in the grand scheme of things.

I would probably buy a car (which wouldn't even dent it since my dream cars are all cars a normal middle class person could afford). Probably a house. Would toss my mother, father and sister a bone and then work on saving the rest.

10,000 $100 hookers.

Or buy a house, car, square away my family then save it and just live more comfortably.

A car, a nice apartment, weed, daily fun, put a few grand into my poker account, toss some bucks for my family and figure out how to invest some of it.

A car, nice place, and give my better half the wedding and honeymoon she deserves for putting up with me.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I'd do a lot of stuff already said on the thread. Also my grandparents would go on a trip to see the world.

Tax free? Bye bye job that would take me til I died to make that much. I also wouldn't recommend anybody keeping their winnings in the trunk of their car. You just know a 16 year old flunking social studies is gonna end up stealing that thing.

I already said I was inviting the MMA board members to a UFC bout LIVE AT THE MANDALAY BAY with frow row seats, free flowing booze 24/7, hookers and blow for Xeberus & friends, training session at Wand's gym, then more partying at all the clubs; XS, Tao, Palms, etc.

Put a down on my penthouse crib, donate 1% to charity, invest in several ventures, play in the WSOP, then put the rest all on RED.
