If I had won the powerball last night, I would be very surprised because I can't/haven't bought a ticket.

But, I would buy a road bike and gear. It is tech, technically Tongue out

Actaully, I don't even know if I would do that. I would act as if I wasn't any richer than I was the day before.

Se7ensyns: I would have used the money to fund Peter Jacksons Halo movieCool

$19M would barely cover the credits rolling... LOL

And hows this for a sobering thought - if you invested 10 mil of your winnings at even the most conservative term deposit rates, you would gross around 800k a year in interest. Thats 66k a month, for sitting on your butt doing nothing, and STILL with 9 mill to blow on lord knows what.

I'm really hating my job at the moment

Invest 75% in a diverse portfolio with a percentage of the dividends going to charity. Then spend the remainder on a city pad and holiday home in NZ before going traveling the world for a year or two. I'm sure I would get a few nice gadgets too.
