What a heavy-handed question, Chip! It's taken me almost half an hour to write this, finally, because that's how long it's taken to sit and think about it. And, like someone had already posted, would it not fail for a little time, or for forever? If it would work forever, I would try to get a photography business off the ground!
Right now finances and time don't allow me to start doing professional photography, but it's something I've always wanted to do.
Okay, that was my serious answer. Here's my hypothetical one. Were gambling not against my religion, I would play one of the smaller lotteries. (hang on, now, before y'all accuse me of being greedy) I would pay off my parents house, and make sure that they were well taken care of and comfortable in their old age. I would do a one time scholarship for ten underprivileged students in that their first two years of college would be completely paid for, including supplies and room and board. That would pretty much exhaust those winnings. If there's $20,000 left over, I'll replace my poor car.
Oh yeah. Tea. Brewed hongcha at work. Will probably crack open one of my tons of samplers of pu-erhs over the weekend. Possibly review 'em.
