Default If you won the lottery for $500Million....

what is the absolute LAST thing you would think about buying?

Don't want to know what you would buy, want to know the one thing you wouldn't even give a second of consideration towards when thinking about what to buy. If someone lists something they wouldn't buy, that would be your first consideration for purchase, don't justify why you think is is cool to own it. Just interested in what you aren't interested in.

Me, a boat! The earlier thread on boats reminded me why I don't want to own one. Went out with some friends one time who had a very nice inboard/outboard ski boat. I was bored to death after two hours. If I didn't have such a strong desire to live I would have jumped over board and drowned myself. If you own a boat I'm very happy for you, the industry employs thousands of people for which I'm grateful so don't take it personal.

What wouldn't be on your list?

I agree about a boat although this one might be appealing. Shad Khan’s luxury yacht '''Kismet’ for sale for $199M

Of course after losing about half of it to taxes there would not be enough left to both buy and operate the yacht.

I don't think that we would buy another home. We like what we have.

More money would not make us new people. I think I would buy the kids larger homes so they would have a room for us to visit.

Being frugal and a student of probability, I would never buy another lottery ticket

With that kind of money I might lease or buy a Gulfstream G650 to get from here to there, at least during the China coronavirus pandemic.
