What would you do if you won the lottery?

I'd donate quite a bit to charity, and spend a chunk on my friends and family. The rest, I'd invest and spend wisely over the years.

I'd still work, but probably only part-time (so that I'm not bored, rather than for the money).

I'd buy some land near me and build my dream workspace then proceeded to work on a mech.

If I work 1 million, I think I'd honestly still work at my normal job. It would totally be enough to pay off any debt, and then buy a moderate sized house for a family you'd expect to have (or currently have). I don't think that I'd go crazy though like I feel like a lot of people would do (buy all brand new cars, huge homes, etc). since they always seem to go broke (not sure if you guys have watched the show on TLC about those who won and what happened to them after. Some are good, some are bad.).

I would never win the lottery because I never play it. However, hypothetically, I would try to take care of my family and others in my life who are in need. I would also like to use some of the money to make a positive difference for people. You know, after I buy an awesome PC and trade in my 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT on a 2020 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

I'd most likely tell my fiance he can retire and then we'd go buy our own house. Then I'd probably go travel and go to another Elton John concert. :P

so update, same as before, but instead of building a mech, I think I would actually like to open a makerspace/hackerspace, because that way I can help educate the people in my area regarding technology and reduce the over all fear and "not technical" statements.
