I'd invest/set up enough to live comfortable, just so I don't have to worry about paying bills, or emergencies, maybe allowing for a bit of travel, but not much, I'm not a big traveler. A bit for my kids and family. Probably either give the rest to some reasonably charity -- bill gates foundation or something like that just so I wouldn't have to mess with it...

Property is a sound investment that is likely to mainly appreciate over time. I'd probably put much of it into that.

I'd also like to start my own trading company. I often see stuff in discount stores for 50p or £1 which is going for 5-6 times as much on eBay. It'd be nice to have the money to buy in bulk from the source.

I ain't giving none of it to nobody. Couple hundred acres up in the mountains, house on the beach, nice sailboat, maybe a small aircraft like a Lake amphibian. I could set it all up for under 3 mil, then invest the rest and sit on my lazy ass sucking down the interest.

Yep, something like that. Except for the beach house. Tried it for 9 years, ran away inland.

Oh look; there's more than one thread started by me in economics. Thought of summit todo with £1,000,005 - burn it on a remote Scottish Island; outdoing the KLF by £5 ; )

Give 9 million away because all that small change I do not need

Then buy a house and some land in Ireland and fill it with books and read them till the day I die

$10 million is SFA. If I had been given that much and were told to spend it on something I fancy, I'd have to borrow another $ 10 million or so just to buy a very small 51 year old second hand car that's been thrashed to within an inch of its life and discarded by its original owners a year after it was built because it had become obsolete.
