So you just won $1.6 - 2 billion, what would you do? Lets avoid the obvious (set up a trust, take the payment up front, dont fucking tell anyone, family and friends are set for life, strippers/cocaine, travel, homes, bugatti for every day of the week, xbox's for special female friends).

With this lump sum of money and somehow you didnt get found out depending on what state you live in, how would you bless or mess with people?

Do you hire more Pantheon devs?

The first thing to do would be to hire an expert at changing your identity as well as is possible. The horror stories I've read about strangers stalking lottery winners are pretty crazy. Second thing would be to buy the best yacht I could afford to maintain for the rest of my life and just live on the sea, traveling from port to port for an endless stream of varied vacationing.

Me and a dude was taking about this just today at lunch. All laughing about it, he said he would have a limo deliver his ass to work, then have a staff in tuxes and those hot maid uniforms follow him around at work and do all his shit for him, serve him snacks and shit. just to rub it in until they finally said youre fired.

What I don't understand about these fags that win hundreds of millions and get harassed and stalked, is why the fuck they stay in their home city or even country? You win 300 million and you stay in fucking Akron, Ohio?

The first thing these idiots should be doing is buying a sick house in Europe or Asia and chill there for a few years until everybody forgets about you back home.

Dont they have an option to accept the winnings privately? As in no public bullshit? I seem to recall reading something to that fact. Im betting that there are ways to get this shit without even your family knowing about it.

You can sometimes set up a trust and have the trust sign the ticket (this is the reason you shouldn't sign the ticket). But several states won't allow blind trusts to claim the prize.

Either way I would be all set because I have a very small crcle of friends and family here in the states. First thing I would probably do is bulldoze my cabin up north and build a real modern day log cabin, then stay up there for a while. Plenty to do in the summer or winter. Then if bored go to fla/tx and buy some beach front place. Get my pilots license, buy a small air plane, 2-4 seater to fly around in.

I wouldn't take the one lump sum, I've never dealt with a lot of money and I simply don't trust myself. Figured if I get 30 annual payments I have 29 chances to do something right with the cash. Averages to about 45-50 million per year after taxes according to my google-fu.

Since I fucked up and didn't go to college the next best thing for me I guess is to hook up my old high school with some new classes. I would say about half my stash would probably go away on just doing nice shit cause I'm such a simple bumkin and can't imagine what the fuck I would do with just 10 million/year. Of course I would be taking lavish vacations and hire drop dead escorts to go with me

Many don't, and change their names and put a lot of effort into avoiding all of it, but there are people out there that stalk them through court records and the like and follow them cross-state and even to other countries. They target family members as well if they can't get to them or just to get the info from them. It's a situation similar to the crazy Hollywood stalkers.
