You win a million dollars... tax free!! What do you do next?

I was doing one of those stupid surveys on myspace cause I was bored out of my mind and thought this would be a fun thing to post up on here. Not sure if this has been posted before but Heres my list of things....

Pay off all my debt.... #1 goal!!! The speed would be mine!!!
Buy a few parts for the speed.... HIDS.. Spoiler lip...coilovers... suspension parts... CF Hood... cosmetic goodies
Buy a house... nothing crazy... something with a huge garage is my only requirement!
Put a portion of it in some sort of IRA or investment account.
Buy a 98 Eclipse GSX and build the hell out of that.... 900awhp would be the goal.
One of the new Evo X's... just cause I could!! haha.
go snowboarding
Travel around the US, Japan, Europe... etc...
Get my mom whatever she wanted!!!
Attend a professional driving school
Buy some new clothes... cause the last time I actually went shopping for clothes I was in high school I think haha.

Thats all I can think of right now... Im tired and am sure theres a bunch more Id like to do. What would you do with all the money??

Re: You win a million dollars... tax free!! What do you do next?

Pay off the mortgage, buy a few small things and then open a couple of accounts and slap the max FDIC covered amount in each one. Then take the remainder the split it between CDs, money market accounts, bonds and mutal funds until the market starts recovering more. Then I'd probably place all but maybe 100-150k in to the market and leave the remainder in money market, CDs and bonds.

Yay for doing it by hand then! That will probably last about an hour tops.I was craving meat REALLY bad. plus, my mom gets really hot, so I was uncomfortable. So I have to really stretch.

You know what I would do if I had a million dollars? I would invest half of it in low risk mutual funds and then take the other half over to my friend Asadulah who works in securities...
