    Default Powerball jackpot $500 Million for Wednesday's drawing: What is the most absurd thing you'd do if you won?

    Me personally, I would do four things:

    1. Go crazy and get every pair or Jordans ever made

    2. I would buy season tickets for Notre Dame, Redskins, and the Pacers and work my way on getting ownership in the teams somehow.

    3. I would buy any and every Harley Davidson I saw (I dont ride, never have, but I fell in love with these bikes at a young age. Still have all my replicas that I put together and painted)

    4. I would get a house similar to the one the founder of Papa Johns has in Kentucky:

    (Though I do not need the garage)

    Would you buy all of Notre Dame, or just the football team?

    I probably shouldn't say this out loud, but since my dream has been to attend Notre Dame my whole life I would probably just make a "donation" so I could get into the school of business graduate program.

    Now lasting past the first hour......thats a whole nother story

    To be 100% serious:

    I would buy a small house and vineyard in the Greek isles where I would live all year with the exception of basketball season. I would pay some guy to teach me Greek. During basketball season I would follow the Pacers and sit courtside every game. Invest the rest.

    Drive around in an RV and troll sports message boards.


    This is actually half true. Driving around in an RV doesn't sound bad at all.

    Honestly the first thing I would do would be to pay off my house in Anderson and donate it to a company that helps people with disabilities have independent living. That may not be the craziest or wildest but it would be my first. After that I would buy my mom a 1968 camaro that is done up like her's was when she got it new back then. I would also get a 1985 Cutlass with t-tops and have it restored to look like my dad's did and give it to my step-mom because I know that it would mean a lot to her. The last thing I would do would be to have my step-dad's harley restored to perfect condition. The most exotic thing I would do is take a European vacation starting in Amsterdam and hitting up Germany, France, Ireland and England.

    Have a custom modern home made for my wife and me.

    Would not go crazy at all. I'd certainly become a philanthropist.

    Buy or build my own theater (similar to the Carmel Palladium) and have concerts all the time.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    I'd buy some popular band and make them my house band, just for ***** and giggles. And then I'd yell "FREEBIRD" anytime i wanted and they would have to play.

    I'd set aside 10mil for myself and family and give the rest to the government to pay down the national debt....with the understanding that my family and I would never again have to pay income taxes. Right after they release me from this hospital room with the padded walls.

    Seriously, I'd like to own a recording studio in Nashville Indiana. I have people in mind to run it I just need the $$

    I'd also like to get Jurgen from the Heidleburg Haus on Pendleton Pike to help me create a really good dining facility on the eastside. THere just isn't anywhere that doesn't either serve Mexican food or has a buffet line.

    Thirdly, $5 Mil to each of St. Michael's in Greenfield, Cathedral Hs, Franklin Central, and North Central for their arts programs. $10Mil to St Michaels for their building funds.....not to be used for anything sports related.

    Finally and this is a biggie for me......... I'd like to endow a chair at IU Law for Conservative Studies.

    $550 million total is $350 million or so cash value...

    $20 million - deposited in a bank
    $20 million - donated to charity
    $20 million - donated to my alma mater, Franklin College, specifically to the Biology/Chemistry departments
    $20 million - donated to my current place of employment to be used for analytical instrument/technology acquisition and building fund

    Pay off my parent's mortgage, my brother's mortgage, my sister's mortgage, and my mortgage.
    Purchase (in cash) a few classic muscle cars (65 GTO, 69 Charger, 70 Challenger, etc.)
    Purchase a second sizeable, but not overwhelming, house.

    And then there would be around $265 million left...

    It's insane how much you could really acquire and set yourself up for life...if you're smart about it.

    I'd open a strip club that operates in reverse order. You come in poor and over-stimulated(and drunk maybe), and then the strippers give you money as they put their clothes back on. You leave sober with disposable income.

    I would buy the Miami Heat. Seriously.


    I'd trade Lebron to the Euroleague, send Bosh to the Raptors where he belongs and send Wade to Phoenix or some place. Then I'd move the team to Havana if Castro would let me. If not, then San Juan. Anything to **** off those damn Heat "fans".
