It's an old Question

It really is an old question. Due to the recent state lottery it's one that I've been hearing a lot and from a lot of different people.
If you had A Million (or in this case 132 Million) U.S. Dollars, what would you do with your life?
which is essentially asking what would you do with your life if you were "free" of your obligations and fear?

If anyone is going to answer I'm going to add something else as well.
I assume the best of all of you, so I've already taken into consideration all the charities and hospitals and poor and sick and poorly dressed people you have helped, the question is essentially, what is your Maltese Falcon?

and because i like all the versions

Ok, yes, besides what I'd give to charities: Going in concentric circles outward (like, start with my brother and go out), I'd pay off my family's debts, buy them (and myself) all a house, set up a family trust/scholarship fund for the kids, I'd send my mum to a neurologist, go on a book-buying spree the likes of which will go down in history, then go to Iceland.

Honestly, it's such an incomprehensible amount of money...

Well yes, charities and all.. learn to drive, get a car and a house, open a used bookstore.
