Why be so frugal? I'd get the Carrera GT.

Just because you get a ridiculous amount of money, doesn't mean you have to lose ALL common sense. The Carrera GT will decrease in price because no one is buying them now.

Definitely. Especially Costco, I love that place!

Seriously though, there's no need to THROW money away. I'd buy a couple houses though.

I would take care of the fam real well first. Then donate a bit to various organizations.

Then house, and then Koenigsegg...

That would be the order... I was honestly pissed that I didnt win the 256M in megamillions this week



Seriously though: http://www.koenigsegg.com/thecars/ccx.asp?ccx=3

Heheh, I bought 1 ticket too but only because I thought I was given an omen when I saw 77,777 on my odometer a couple weeks ago. But guess like I failed since I didn't buy a ticket that same day!

I don't feel so bad.....I usually don't buy lottery because of the probability:

MEGA Millions Prize Categories and Odds:

Match Odds 1 in Prizes

All 5 of 5 and Mega..............175,711,536
All 5 of 5...........................3,904,701
Any 4 of 5 and Mega............689,065
Any 4 of 5.........................15,313
Any 3 of 5 and Mega............13,781
Any 3 of 5..........................306
Any 2 of 5 and Mega.............844
Any 1 of 5 and Mega.............141
None of 5, Only Mega............75

Overall odds of winning 39.89

I always buy random tickets when I remember to. It's always the random people that win the big bucks.
