    If you hit a $300 million Powerball lottery, what are the first three things you would buy and/or do with some of the money?

    I would:
    1. Quit my job
    2. Buy a cottage on water
    3. Travel

    This is just for fun, so please no Debbie Downers.

    I might go hookers, beer, and more hookers but I wouldn't argue about your choices either.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    1. Hire a lawyer to claim prize under an anonymous trust.

    2. Work at least another 3-5 years so no one Suspects anything.

    3. Buy lots of land. Like over 1000 acres.

    Gotta go with Brownslave on this one. I'd much rather be rich and anonymous than rich and famous. With the addition of the "Officespace" approach to my departure time. Let my pension money go to my union brothers who are getting screwed.

    That much I wouldn't quit right away , I would have to leave in fashion

    I would live where I am at , I would just paved the road to my house so no more dirt roads and do some remodeling

    And then I would just travel , paying bills off and helping the kids is just a gimme

    I'm not sure I would want my kids knowing I won the lottery.

    A recent study showed over 90% of millionaires have all their money blown before it gets passed their grand kids.

    A recent Rockefeller family reunion. Yes that Rockefeller the one that in today's money was worth more than anyone alive now. Hundreds of billions.

    Well over a 100 family members and not a one was even a millionaire.

    No one said they would tell their kids I wouldn't , I would just ask what is needed and make it happen
