If I had $50 million ...

    Anyone who says they'd keep their job if they won the lottery is lying. The first time your boss asked you to do something you didn't want to do, you'd think, `I don't need this' and quit.

    God'll get you, 'Daho, if you're handing out all that cash and not tithing to the church.

    Hello, Vegas? I'd like $100 on black. D'oh! Oh, I'll send you a check.

    3 million to Webby.

    The rest.

    Live  baby live.

    OK, then I'd become a stringer, working games I want to work and bailing out after pounding out a 12-inch gamer.

    My church doesn't want gambling money. Filthy lucre.

    I'm always amazed (and a little skeptical) about all these people who say they would retire immediately.

    We all know of many people with this kind of money . . . but almost none of them are retired. Is Micky Arison retired? Steve Jobs? Why aren't they just "partying all the time in Vegas, baby"?

    I may quit my current job, but I couldn't imagine not working, even if it was doing something part-time or volunteer work just to, you know, stay relevant in the world.

    I mean, how many times can you tell people you meet who ask what you do, "Oh, nothing. I used to be a writer. But I won the lottery xx years ago. So now I do nothing." ?

    I'd keep my job, maybe scale back a little, but I'd want to keep writing just because I like doing it.

    I'd buy a condo in one of the new buildings going up on the Strip in Las Vegas, a loft in Georgetown or NYC, a cabin and 1,000 or so acres in Colorado, Montana or somewhere else with a trout stream running through it and a beach house on Islamorada. Then I spend my time rotating between the four places, depending on my mood and season.

    True, but I didn't steal your lines.

    and I'd buy a minor league baseball or arena football team. Call myself a mini-Mark Cuban.

    Those people were never motivated by money in the first place, otherwise they never would have made that much. I think alleyallen is referring to a situation where $50 million might fall into your lap, like winning the lottery or finding a $50 million bill on the street.
