If I won it I'd buy a yacht like Tiger Wood's. hire a good crew & spend the rest of my life cruising all around the world anywhere I wanted to go fishing.

    If I won I would buy a place next to TRT and watch the fun.

    I would have bought a nice CC and a house in the Keys, then a house and property in Wyoming and split time between hunting and fishing.

    I think i'd take the 50 mil per year, if you can't make that work, you don't need the money.

    Who insures that the funds to make the payments would still be available in 20 years? I'd take the lump.

    About the same people who insure that money in the bank will be there in 20 years, it's a gamble either way.  or you can scrooge mcduck it in a big vault and hope no one steals it.

    It is an annuity. The lottey buys treasury bonds backed by the federal government to pay out the installments. 

    Trust me, if the payments aren't there in 20 years, it won't matter because the entire economy will have collapsed.

    BTW, Mega Millions is a 29 year payout.

    My production plant is located in Simpsonville, where the ticket was sold.  I wonder if anyone didn't report to the plant today?

    What I was wishing for got me looking at yachts.  Paul Allens yacht was the largest.

    There is 2 larger now.  His was 441 ft long with a 60 something ft beam.  It's crew is 57 members & costs $384,000 a week to operate.

    It has 2 helicopters 2 subs a movie thearer, a basketball court it's shuttle boat is 63 ft.

    It cost $200 million euros to build. The yachts name was Octopus.  

    Steve Jobs yacht is a nice one too.  It cost $100 million.

    TW's yacht was $20 million
