    Friday's Euromillions lottery was not won once again. This means that next Friday's Jackpot will be around £120 million.

    What would you do if you won 120 million pounds?

    That'd be 229.45200 million dollars. ;) My family already invests in GE, Dell, and HP. I'd invest about half of it in some other Fortune 500 stocks. Probably get a new car and a little condo for now, take a week's vacation in the summer. I'd keep my same job. The rest would go toward furthering my education and career in the company I'm in now, and a bank account.

    Those who would take the free trip to the top aren't worthy of holding a position there.

    Excellent idea.

    As for what I would really do; I expect it would be pretty much whatever the hell I wanted, in as many beautiful and varied places as I could arrange.:tongue:

    Dave,

    I was visiting the UK that week, and on your suggestion, bought a ticket or two, and won (gasp!) NINE EUROS.

    I'll buy you a drink when I'm next in London. A cheap one.

    Love, HB8

    First I would wonder why I didn't win 130 million Euro's and secondly, it would be just enough to get me into debt.
