    Is that before or after taxes.......there wouldn't be much left after the government got their greedy paws on it!!!!!! I'd put a lot of it away for my kids or put it into a skipped generation trust fund so when I die, they don't get hit with a huge death tax! (hoping that gets repealed) Either way, I guess the government is going to get a big chunk of it :(

    1. College funds for my two boys
    2. A new house
    3. A new car (I would love to have a Mercedes G-500)

    I'm sure there would be nothing left, but if so I would like to travel Europe.

    First I would pay off all my bills, then buy a new house and car. Any money left over would go to my family. I think it would be fun to watch them spend it.
