i would carry on working, but not in my current job!
i would pile a lot of the cash into the wrestling buissiness!
and probably commit the rest of my time to GAMING! :D

I completely agree. There have been some twisted stories of what happens to people after they've won the lottery.

Oh, I know. I'm sure I'd become a dictator. With a lot of C64s.

Especially relations of some lotto winners...
Or even families who fight over wills at a person's funeral. Crazy stuff.

I'd like to think money wouldn't change me personality-wise. If it was a big win, I'd make sure everyone who I'm close to got a decent chunk of it.

I lady that worked in the office next to me about 6 years ago won 1.3 million.

She didn't even treat the friends she had been working with for 20 years. Not even a night out.

They went on a spending spree and nobody saw her for a couple of years. Now she is back in town, working as no money left and all she has to show for it is a medium sized house.

1.3 million just isn't enough nowadays. And yes it can change people.. They become like squirrels protecting their nuts...

If I won the lottery i'd be bloody surprised seeing as I don't play it...

However, If i did win some money I'd buy a house so we won;t have to rent this shithole any more, give my parents all the money I owe them back, with a lot more on top, make sure my nieces were set up for life, give a lot to my girlfriend and then spend the rest on retro games. I'd like to think I wouldn't spend it all on retro stuff, but to be honest I probably would.

First thing I'd do is sort out family and friends, then charities...

After that, I'd buy a new Land Rover Disco, and spend a month or so driving round Europe, to Northern Italy and back (really want to drive through The Alps), around the south of France to Spain and then back here...

Then I'd do a tour of the UK, visiting all the places I haven't been to/want to see...

Then it's back home to play games, retro and modern forever.. :wink:
