Default WOW.... $500 Million

We saw today that the Powerball is up to $500 Million.

And was wondering, if you were to win it ...

What would be the first 5 things you would do ?

Set it up in low risk investments and live off the interest.

Then I'd probably buy an island in the South Pacific or Caribbean and become a Bond villain...blow up the moon or something.

This after I pay off any debts (parents' mortgage, cars, etc.), buy a few bikes, and ransack Cancun for a month. I'd throw this animal shelter by me $1M and give to some smaller charities where 100% of the donation is used (no United Way bullshit).

I would get the fuck out of Dodge. You know that everyone who remotely knows you will have their hand out.

The lump sum payout right now is $330,000,000. You'd really have to be an idiot to fuck up that much money.

I'd use the money to start my own racing team in amateur class in a professional manner, me being the racer. Advertise my team and myself as well for being the first deaf AMA GP racer.

And have a shot at CRT ride in American soil as wild card ride. Or lease a factory backed Honda RC213v.

That's what I'd do with 500 million.
