What would you do if you won $70 mil in lotto?

I am going to buy a lotto ticket, then win the $70 million. Then Im going to buy a black lambo and dress as batman and cruise around the streets... Once that got boring I would move to America and spend time heli skiing and then surfing in Hawaii. For my 23rd birthday I would invite 200 people on a trip to bali and book out the hotel, and party until we can't party anymore.

What would you do with the $70 million?

Well I'd put enough on my SmartRider so I never have to top it up again. Then I'd buy a solid gold car.

Edit: The first seems incongruous with the second. I wouldn't drive the car - it would be impractical because of the weight. It'd just stay in my driveway as a symbol of my own wealth.

I'm not sure I understand question. In theory I'd open the solid gold door and sit on the solid gold seat.

I think I would still want to complete uni. Maybe defer for a year and take a trip around the world. Start paying more attention to the share market and start investing the money and making more money. Look at real estate. As cool as a solid gold car sounds, it also sounds like a complete waste of money.

On the solid gold car, the gold price is currently around $1600 US per troy ounce (31.1g). Thus $70million would only be able to buy just over 1300 kg of gold. Comparing this weight to an ordinary car (Toyota Corolla),  which weighs about 1300 kg too, it is thus feasible to have at least a full scale solid gold car, perhaps not a working car though.

Solid gold car refers to a car that is wholly made of gold, as opposed to car that is simply gold plated.

Not so, the volume of the car's materials remains constant, not the mass.  If all the steel components of the Corolla were replaced with gold components the car would weigh roughly 2.5x it's original mass. So you'd only get 40% of a solid gold car for $70m...  Tongue

With 70 mil, I'd finish my degree(only 18 months to go), and probably buy property in like Florida, London, rural Spain/France. Oh and probably practice and turn pro. Although, my putting is pretty sketchy.

Flick back to the Adelaide Oval dressing rooms in 1989. There an enraged Patrick Patterson, irked by a slogging from Australia's tailenders, especially Merv Hughes, unloads his frustration on a stooped old man. "You Don Bradman!? I kill you, man, I Split you in two." Sir Donald, hand on hip, was dismissive of the big West Indian. "Mate, you couldn't even get Merv out, you'd have no chance against me."

I would give most of it to the School of Mathematics & Statistics at UWA. (Maybe)

haha, it's funny when it comes down to making a decision between keeping it all and being altruistic

Continue degree, but on 2 units per semester. 10% goes to various charitable organisations. Invest & perhaps becoming an executive producer in a few movies/television shows in America/Britain. Perhaps buy a few more properties across the world?. Continue working as well.

I am glad I am not the only one who has realised not only is a black lambo an amazing car, its also an exact replica of the batmobile and by definition is the coolest car in the world.

Would buy the company that owns the new lecture capture system and send it bankrupt. Then would set up rock-concert class sound systems and video capture in every lecture theatre. Each lecture theatre would also have Gold Class style lounge chairs with cup holder and all-you-can-drink coke dispensers.

Maybe I'd also hire in some additional international level lecturers so we could have eng class sizes of less than a thousand! Smiley
