what's your /k/ related plans for the money if you win?
I'm starting up a milled AK shop, i'll hire 100 of you fuckers if i win.
and obviously investments
-pay off bills.
-move out of CA.
-buy land and house.
-renovate house with reinforced door frame, internal steel plated door. Security film windows and good locks.
-raise some dogs.
-buy guns and ammo.
-hire lawyers, money manager, and portfolio manager.
I'd buy pic related and become the first /k/omando to own one.
Buy a bunch of land in Puerto Rico, make a compound in the mountains, bribe the local police so I can have whatever I want (yes I'm aware of their latest Supreme Court decision) and live a life of tropical luxury without snow.
Sweet babby jesus that's a lot of money. Would honestly consider buying ridiculous amounts of land and starting a nation where a man would have the freedom to wear shorts as short as he pleased without getting judged for it
Give all my money to moms demand action in exchange for a blowjob from Mrs. Watts
Set up a trust fund, slowly build up a modest arms collection, then invest in japanese robot waifus and artificial wombs so lonely men can experience love (and women don't have to deal with lonely men, so there's that as well).
Also, I'd sell ridiculously underpriced rifles then, once at least 15 million are sold, leak info on /k/ how to convert them to select fire mode for less than $15 and minimal labor (so minimal it makes constructing a suppressor from an in-line fuel filter look like brain surgery) and watch the ATF scramble to confiscate.
Oh, but I will. I won't leak that info until tens of millions have been sold and by the time the ATF bans my design it will be too late.
>buy a $2 ticket
>chances are amazingly low that you'll win
Unless you're major autismo, an extreme poorfag, or the world's most concentrated jew, why would you cry about throwing $2 at a very very small possibility that it net you millions?
Oh man, I love this game.
>lump sum option
>buy new truck
>buy land, like 500 acres
>build house with private range

>spend the rest of my life shooting guns, driving tank and shooting cars from the junk yard, maybe raise chickens and just homestead and try to be self suffucient
Im no snowflake
Im just not an idiot
Not only are lotteries an idiot tax
But buying into a lottery when your odds are at their worst (i e, record breaking jackpots) is even stupider
right. I guess you'll also call the winners stupid for doing that as well.
I mean, who the fuck wants money, right?
Hell, NO ONE should buy into lotteries, it's all very stupid.
Keep that $1-$2 and use it on something smart.
since its 2$, the loss if I don't win isn't enough to really be detrimental to me. I'll take the 1 in 500 million chance over the zero chance for that price.
>buy SVD. this is first and foremost on the list.
>invest in more SVDs
>buy T-72 from those guys selling them online

>build a secret housing for my funs in case the happening
>sit on the rest and retire early. I'm content with living at middle class standards.
But you don't get it! As >>28530956 and >>28530750 and >>28530743 stated, you have no a stupid low chance of winning! You're an idiot, and they are the smart people with their $2. And with that $2, they will go on to buy bus fare that'll take them over a cliff and into their deep abyss of smart.
Yes they are an idiot , a lucky idiot but an idiot.
They are one of the literal MILLIONS buying into it, happened to be one of the literal hundreds that will win in their life time.
Either you are just trolling in which well done or we are going to continue going full circle.
Enjoy your years of fruitless spending
>not mention anything about always buying lottery tickets ever, except for this one
>he proceeds to generalize out his ass and assume a whole lifestyle
So do you feel good when you put yourself on the pedestal or does it come in waves for you?
Fuck the trolls. True none of us will probably win, but this is no reason to fuck up what could be a fun thread.

I'd buy a laser satellite and go full Blofeld.
I don't know how much arable land in Colorado is, but let's assume you buy 1,000 acres at $1,000/acre.

This is a good point. To me, car accidents were false and didn't exist until I hit that one guy in a parking lot.
Life happens, nuggets. So go buy your $2 tickets and have fun playing a money game. I went and bought mine with my mom. My brother and I will be heading over and we'll all be watching the drawing as a family.
There are some really anti-fun faggots in this particular thread.
OP, I think I'd put most of it in several different bank accounts, invest some, and buy all the 8mm Mauser I can get my hands on. Then I'd finish buying that scout mount and a scope for my 24/47. Brass Stacker makes a mount that doesn't require any machining, so all's I have to do is change out a couple of pins on my good buddy Mauser. After that, I'd pretend I didn't have all the money and live completely like normal, only in a better house and knowing that going to work is no longer a life-or-death thing anymore, so I can have more fun.

I just know the asshole that wins is going to claim it publicly. Yeah, he's going to be kidnapped and probably murdered in about 48 hours.
This one guy around her won the lotto, the newspaper interviewed him and published his address, the dumb motherfucker even said he was going to go on vacation for a week. He came home and found his house totally ransacked. Month later, yep they kidnapped and killed him.
Learn how to set up a private trust to claim shit like this.
I would find a way to give every kommando at least 5k. maybe do something like ask nuggetfest for an email list or something.
I would have to find a way to filter actual kommandos from random crossboard faggots trying to get money, so just giving it out in thread is a nogo

You know I toyed with this idea a bit. I've always liked tinkering with things but I've always been held back on any of my bigger ideas by a lack of funding. I don't think power armor is viable due to a lack of energy, don't take it wrong anon. If you want to build it go right ahead. But I do have some weapon ideas that I've always wanted to experiment with just for shits and giggles. Like I always wanted to build a replica of a Shoku from BF2142. A caseless magazine fed, electronically fired suppression weapon. Just for the hell of it.
I would fund Nuggetfest and /k/ related products. I love you guys and gals.
I could see power armor tethered to a mobile power source (think: generator on wheels). The armor would have a battery so that if the generator is blown up or if the connection is severed then it would put its remaining energy into opening up so that the occupant could hop out.

Most of the money I'd like to think I'd give away to good causes, but I can't know unless I win. I don't need $1b, but I sure would like to give money to those who do need it.
>what's your /k/ related plans for the money if you win?
First part of plan: Spend 2 weeks/however long it takes for the money to clear living in terrible fear that, of all the chances, some dick ass thief decides to burglarize my house and/or mug me and take my winning ticket - /k/ related plan being to start carrying everywhere just in case
Second part, after money clears: Move to gun-friendly state, preferably with SYG and Castle laws, then start amassing a collection of every gun I've ever wanted to shoot
Honestly? I'd buy everything I've ever needed/wanted, and then what's left over, put about 50mil in a mutual fund and give the rest in 1 million intervals to random people I see on the street.
It would be pointless, but to see the look on some hobo's face would be priceless. Or some doc or moms when they see me walking around in full soviet or SS uniform. What ever I feel like that day.
Ahhhhh, wouldn't it be nice?

After taxes, you could buy 2.6 million nuggets. If there are still that many around. You could give a nugget to every man, woman, and child who lives in Rome. Or Cali, Columbia (they probably already have enough guns). Or Incheon (they could use 'em). Or Antananarivo Madagascar (this is where they'd probably ship from). Or Manchester England (because fuck Liverpool)
With that kind of money, you could make the bosses vision a reality...

"odds are at their worst" which isn't true. Your odds are the same with a low prize and a high prize. The odds don't fluctuate based on that. The chances stay the same as there are the number of combinations.
Id buy you fuckers some guns and equipment.
But I would flood the Britbongs with pump action AKs and pump their media and Ausfailia full of progun stuff. The NRA would get a bunch of money too. Why? Because self defense is a human right. I dont even care what the intent of the 2a was, defending ones self goes hand in hand with the ownership of arms. I think world peave woukd be brought about by the simple idea that if you try to kill someone they might just try to kill you back.

See, I never EVER play the lottery, but christ this is like 3x bigger than any lottery in history and I felt compelled to throw down 6 bucks for 3 numbers. I never gamble so my lifetime loss will probably only be this ticket.
>2 bucks gets me a few wistful moments in my imagination of 'what-if?' scenarios
These scenarios have been putting me to sleep the past few days.
I love doing the what ifs and everything I would buy with that kind of money
pretty much get to daydream about what you would do with 1 billion, not that I can't do it anytime I want, but when you literally have an astronomical chance, your imagination can run wild and its kind of cathartic.
>I never gamble so my lifetime loss will probably only be this ticket.
Yeah, same here. Never bought lottery tickets before, never been to a casino, shit, never even played poker with my buddies for cash.

I know, but I'm thinking about the taxes and I can always just buy more land around me.
Was talking to the wife about it asking her what she wanted specific for the house/ land.
"T-walls around the whole damn thing."
I got a keeper guys.
This, except replace the living like I just don't care with turning the UP to the Finnish colony it was always supposed to be, a place where all true Finns can escape the oppression of Helsinkian EUcuck tyrants and enjoy some god damn freedom.
And then live like I just don't care
Several tens of millions would go to charity.
I'd open a firearms and ammo manufacturing plant, we would make match grade ammo, FAL and AK builds. I would shell out millions to get a license from JSC Izhmash to manufacture copies of the Dragunov SVD and SVDS.
If the market demand existed, the plant would also produce HK rifles built from hand selected surplus parts kits.
The company would also serve as an importation and acquisition agent for rare firearms and vehicles/equipment.
I'd employ unemployed machinists, media/advertising types, armorers, scouts, and instructors.
Invest remaining monies.
I only plan on playing if nobody wins tonight. By saturday it should be up to 2 billion and then with that you'd get about 675million after lump sum, federal taxes, and gifts.
I'd put 500 million in the bank to live off of interest from CDs since I'd get between 5-15 million a year from interest alone.
With the remaining 175million I'd buy land, ammo, guns, cattle, farm equipment, vehicles. I'd prolly set aside 20 million for my parents and 5 million for my sister. I'd then live it out, but I'd put all my money into a trust just in the event of me getting sued.
mathematically speaking its reaching the point where someone *not* winning is pretty much impossible.
1 in 292 million odds means that there are 292 million possible number combinations, one of which i the winner. last Saturday nobody won because only 75% of those numbers were bought. with this much hype going on you can be sure that 100% if not more of the numbers will be drawn, resulting in the jackpot being split. people all around the world are involved this time too, Canadians and Mexicans are crossing the border and Europeans are buying tickets online, its going to suck when this much money was poured into such a ridiculous sum of money only for some dirty foreigner to take it all.

If it isn't yours then she cant take it.
get a trust, and at most she could take half of what you 'make' from the interest gained that the trust pays you.
Would that still be alot, sure. But it'd only affect you for 1 year, and technically it'd be a drop in the bucket if you got taken for 5-10 million.
Cali here, can't be anonymous BUT lottery winnings are exempt from state tax.
Looks like there's 9 states that don't take tax. Only fitting for CA, since the state taxes are fucking ridonkulous to begin with.
After using the money to make even more money:
>Donate a bunch to the NRA to piss off the usual faggots
>Buy a fuckload of guns and ammo including plenty of NFA goodies
>Buy a fully functional tank

>>people getting super butthurt over others spending $2 on lotto
>How poor are you people?
It's not that they're poor, it's just that like with any gamble, there are those who DON'T gamble/wager/bet on anything, and they just can't wrap their mind around anyone who contributes to the equivalent of the house fund.
No amount of discussion/debate will change the fact that for some people, gambling will always appear to be a fool's errand, especially in games of pure chance (i.e. lottery drawings) more than those requiring some degree of skill (i.e. card games where you play the other people at the table as much as the dealer).
I'm not going to try to berate the people who criticize it, that's their prerogative, nor will I even attempt to go all pseudo-intellectual and be like "MMM WELL CLEARLY IT'S A CASE OF COGNITIVE DISSONANCE" (which, in some cases, it is, but that's beside the point).
Just sayin', those who bet on shit like this shouldn't judge those who don't, and vice-versa. Because for the bettors, it's a 1 (or however many tickets they bought) in 292M chance that they can deliver the greatest rebuttal in the history of forever to anyone who doubted them, so they're essentially betting that their defense of themselves is sound; and the detractors are themselves betting, just with a 292M - [number of tickets the subjects of their vitriol bought] in 292M chance of being proven right in their critique.
Think Burt from tremors, less wheel guns obviously
Buy about 10 each of lowers for AR-15 and AR-10. Build up a few of each of them.
Buy 50 mags for each platform I have.
Fill out my arsenal with the things I'm missing (Full power bolt, magnum bolt, shottie, subcompact pistol).
Buy a parcel of land and get an FFL for a gun store/range/museum.
Begin buying all the random guns that I want, some of them going to the museum, others going to my personal stash.
Buy another parcel of land and build a moderately large house (call it 3000 sq. feet above ground) with a bunker underneath.
Fill the bunker with supplies and gear for after the bomb.
So, in a purely hypothetical situation, I win the jackpot. Reading through the Powerball website's FAQs and info pages, it seems that I would have to wait approximately 2 weeks to actually start seeing the money. So, sub-questions:
1.) Will my State Lottery office take custody of my winning ticket in some legal manner within a day or two of actually winning such that I can have it redeemed, and on the books, and so that I don't have to go all Home Alone on defending the ticket which has become my single-most valuable possession?
1b.) Would it be prudent, do you think, to have legal representation, or at least some sort of notary or the like, someone who can prepare legal testimony and paperwork, present when I make the redemption, so that some particularly dirty desk worker at the Lottery office doesn't try to steal my ticket?
2.) Would making passes at financial advisers of some sort be wise? Or would any given one be as likely to try swindling me for 5% of my value or some bullshit in exchange for their 'services'?
1. Presumably one you turn the ticket in the ticket itself no longer has any value since your name is in the system.
1b. I'm willing to bet it's a multi-person affair to begin with, I've never heard of that happening.
2. You absolutely should have one, if they ask for a percentage find a different one, simple as that.
You actually fill out a claim form, even at the lottery office, and turn over the winning ticket at that point. You could also mail it, but that's a fantastic way to lose everything.
It would be smart of you to make a copy of your ticket before even leaving for the office, and then demand a copy of the ticket again, along with the claim form, before they make you leave.
You're being needlessly paranoid, lad. Yeah, it's a lot of money, but if it's physically in your possession, and you can PROVE it is in your possession and was taken from you (and the offices are likely wired to hell and back with cameras), then you can sue the shit out of them if they try to pull that shit. Make sure you look for the cameras and stand nice and still for a second or two in front of each, so there's a video trail.
The office is, naturally, gonna have provisions for dealing with a new multimillionaire, especially since the system KNOWS that a winning ticket was sold in X state (I think they can even ID the particular retailer). You're not really in danger there at all.
Absofuckinglutely get financial advisement. As >>28535585 says, anyone asking for a percentage is a fucking con. Even moguls like Trump and shit wouldn't dare work with someone working like that. In the short term, you would be best off getting an ACTEC lawyer (trust and estates), whose sole purpose (if you didn't know) is helping you defend your assets. Compare to a typical legal lawyer who, as the name suggests, deals solely with law and only cares about your assets insofar as how much you can afford to pay them.
Eventually, you'll want legal representation, because in this crazy imaginary scenario you're probably gonna have hundreds of motherfuckers trying to sue you and claim that you stole their ticket, and without a decent lawyer to bugzap the parasites you could make a mistake and end up being taken for your fortune.
Win lottery. Contact credible lawyer, set up a trust. Have lawyer go to the photo-op while the winnings go into said trust. You now have a time limit to fucking move somewhere before reporters start nosing and uncovering your name and address.

I like you.
Not with taxes and future discounting...but it's still pretty close.
Nah you get forced out when they realize the only punishment other than serious jail time is withholding your pay and sending you to restrictions witch means they can't effectively award punitive measures. You gonna get the boot for having more money than the commander in chief.
>what's your /k/ related plans for the money if you win?
None, I don't have any plans because I'm not going to waste my money on a 1:292 million chance of winning. You're probably more likely to get sucked into some sort of action movie car chase fight with mob enforcers on your way to purchase a ticket potentially followed by a revenge fueled rampage than you are to actually win anything.
I gotta side with Peter Gibbons in Office Space. If I won the lottery, I would sit at home and do nothing. All day, every day. I'd probably buy a bunch of stuff eventually, but I'd bask in the most wonderful thing in the world: not moving.

This, you are more likely to be be killed by ants, die from getting caught in an escalator, or get shot to death by someone armed with a champaign bottle than you are to win the Powerball.
Leave NYC finally. Buy a nice place somewhere in a gun friendly state, buy alot of real estate, rent it out for slightly below market price and live comfortably, with my brand new Arsenal.
Anything you want. Also it'll probably be less than 500 million payout.
I'm currently living with my parents, so that wouldn't really work for me, I'd have to leave first.
I would buy one. Assemble my own private army and remove savages in Africa for a few weeks in the Spring. Rest of the time spend traveling and fucking high end whores.
>Also it'll probably be less than 500 million payout.
>tfw in a lottery-tax-exempted state
And actually, 29 states will leave you with greater than 500M (assuming you win outright), so your 'probably' is inaccurate, as that implies >50% probability.
So, there's still a chance it could go even higher

>state literally take more than 3/4 of the money in taxes
Buy 0 tickets = no chance of winning
Buy 1 ticket = 1:292,000,000 chance of winning.
By my calculations, mind you, I am not a mathitarian or anything, my calculations say that my odds of winning are definitely higher if I buy one than if I buy none.
1 > 0
0 < 1
1/0 = ∞
I will, actually.
>$2 brings daydreams about winning to the forefront of my imagination, and also grants me the nonzero possibility of actually winning it
Worth more than a 10-dollar movie ticket, if I'm being honest.
There are statisticians who studied the data, found out which stores seem to give out winners, and traveled state to state buying lotto tickets, and have won (lotto in general not necessarily powerball). More than once.
>Partnership with KAC
>Start producing all of Stoner's designs for the commercial market
>Also invest the rest, send a few mil and some top of the line lawyers into the hughes amendment fight.
I spent the time figuring it out a few years ago.(I like doing math in my head in the shower) and I thought it was a dollar for a ticket so it came out to something like 700million was brake even odds. At 2$ it should be 1.4 billion. But then there are taxes and a huge hit if you take a lump sum. I wouldn't take the lump. I would take the 20 year payout (thats what it is right?) so like 700million a year. That right there is fuck you money.
It's hard to randomize a distribution system, these statisticians may not be winning powerball jackpots (much), but they are cleaning house winning scratchoff's and state lotto's
After spending approximately 15 million on various non /k/ related things I'd build a bunker and top it with a house, that has a ranch or farm around it.
I'd then fill my armory in the bunker with a plethora of the tools and machines required to build, craft, tool, modify, and repair firearms, making ammunition and reloading the brass, and a large collection of firearms, including but not limited to a .338 lapua rifle, 308 win-mag rifle, 7.62 rifles of various sizes, and a decent collection of NATO chambered rifles and assault rifles, shotguns, and fuck it it's a bunker and I'd have the money, the shit needed to make body armor from ceramic plates and kevlar
But that's a false conclusion, unless there's a flaw in the system.
Assuming quick picks are truly, objectively randomized, and that the drawings are as well, the location where one buys the ticket will literally not matter, as in the end your quick picks are determined by randomized computer bullshit, and the drawing is determined by an equally randomized process, to quote the Powerball Wiki page:
>Two identical machines are used for each drawing, randomly selected from four sets. The model of machine used is the Halogen, manufactured by Smartplay International of Edgewater Park, New Jersey. There are eight ball sets (four of each color); one set of each color is randomly selected before a drawing. The balls are mixed by a turntable at the bottom of the machine that propels the balls around the chamber. When the machine selects a ball, the turntable slows to catch it, sends it up the shaft, and then down the rail to the display.
So as many variables as possible are injected into the system at all levels of the game.
Now, the most probably [hurr] solution to that is that:
>Statistical randomness causes some stores to have more wins than others
>As they garner reputations as 'lucky' retailers, more people go out of their way, both in- and out-of-state, to buy from those particular stores
>Larger pool of possibilities increases chances of winning tickets being drawn from those stores
>As more wins accrue, more people buy, making the store winning-er
Die horribly somewhere in Novorossiya or even worse in Siberia with a foreign exchange student I met in school.
I would bring the big bucks to help the Urkanians. 1.5 billion is not much in the big scheme of things but it will be enough to make the russians cry for a while ))
As soon as I win
Of fucking course, AR-16's too, though I may need to buy into the board of directors at armalite.
Also partner up with Sullivan and make a few ultimax.
Also no holds barred campaign to get militaries to adopt the KAC Stoner LMG
Also retro AR-10's.
And I'm bringing back the snakes.
And hiring that Austrian dude who did the Steyr M (And some UAE wunderpistole) to make a modern plastishit handgun that actually make colt money.
As for the M4, make a product improved variant with either a mono upper or standard modern FF rail, up quality a bit, put in a better trigger and some fancy furniture, at 6lbs or less, sell it for 1k flat and hope to god I get some mil contracts - partnership with KAC is key here.
Nevermind that there are probably as many people in the world with this 'totally unique' theory as there are winning Powerball combinations:
>Current playable numbers cause different combinations to be somewhere around 292 million, thus number of plays for a guaranteed win to be 292M purchased
>Plays are currently 2 bucks a pop
>Therefore you would spend roughly $585M buying tickets
>Even allowing for some $92M in winnings for the take-home prizes (and ignoring that you pay taxes on those, too), you still have a hole of ~$493M to get out of
>Even one other winner would cause you to have a net loss
>As I mentioned >>28537287 here, 85.8% of all possible combos have been sold as of Jan 13, 2016, 3:52 PM ET, when that article was published
>Probably climbed since then, let's be generous and say it ONLY climbed to 90% by the time the sales closed 25 minutes ago
>So, you have a 9 in 10 chance of NOT being the only winner
>So this brilliant guy who's gaming the system is betting on a 1 in 10 chance of making a profit, and a truly marginal one at that.
>Plus, even assuming they win outright, with an annuity they'd be 16-17 years from breaking even, as $900M/30 = ~$30M a year
Considering It's colt besides the stoner system I could make some limited runs of guns rarely/not seen in the US with expired patents - FAMAS, SIG 510, L85 (no HK does not own the rights, Enfield is kaput), Hell I could act as an importer for FAMAE and bring in the FAMAE 540's and pistol caliber carbines, and I could bring in some VHS-2 and some Denel Galil's
Okay. Well. Umm. Holy fucking shit.
I'll be stepping away from the internet for a few weeks, lads. When I come back, I'm gonna figure out where the best possible place would be to host a party for you /k/unts. But I gotta get off the fucking grid like now. No, no fucking screenshots, pictures, whatever the fuck, I know you assholes would find some buried data in the image that shows everything about me or some other nerdy bullshit, and you'd come fucking break into my house.
I gotta go call my parents.
>there's a flaw in the system.
In the case I think anon was thinking of, there was: http://www.wired.com/2011/01/ff_lottery/all/1
(IIRC there was a similar case in NJ, but can't find it now.).
There's also this, which remains unexplained: http://marginalrevolution.com/marginalrevolution/2015/10/but-how-exactly-are-they-cheating.html
Build a house about $100,000, then build a basement much larger than the house, Umbrella corp. like. You'd need a golf cart to get around. It would connect somewhere to a garage with a batcave like turning floor. And finally get a hold on a nugget.
I would literally spend $100m on a JDAM, get the rest in cash, and pay for 2 hours of LIVE TV on every tv station i the world, and bomb the money into vapor
>go to work, give enough money to every person in my department to quit.
>build awesome house, /k/ related defenses and stockpile
>buy land, make private range.
>Start nice LGS/range combo.
>Put all but maybe 1 or 2 LGS in state to shame.
>Hook friend up with his own distillery.
You don't put it all in one bank moron, plus more than 80% of it should not be liquid. You hire mother fuckers to deal with the books at that level,
If i won
>hire private doctor
> hire private tutoring for the wee ones
>have at least 2 more kids
>buy land in nevada, alaska, arizona, france, japan, tropical place to be determined
> buy apc, chipmunk, ultra light, BMP-1, random other shit
> buy mg42, rpd, ak47, ak74, m16, bar, jackhammer, svd, dragonov, mp5, uzi, silencers for all.
> lifetime supply of ammo
> what ever the fuckk my wife wants
> eat at ever 2* and above restaurant in the world.
> donate heavy to nra, goa, ect.
>build bunker, build massive estate for the homies. Seprate estate for the family.
Probably do that with the first year or two worth of pay outs.
Use my money wisely and grow it so i can effect politics like the kock brothers and shit.
I don't get the American obsession with marriage. Just come live in Quebec, where, if unmarried in front of either God or the State, the spouse can't get ANY alimony (children can though) in case of separation.
From the other thread.
Build a small home on the mountainside with a range, indoor pool, greenhouse, and basics.
Start a firearms company, dealing in reproductions of old guns or obscure guns in modern chamberings.
Do a lot of investing.
Donate a lot of money to charities, and helping low-income families afford CHL classes, ammo, and firearms to protect themselves. Invest in education for school kids to know basic gun safety. In america, even if you are anti-gun, your child should know gun safety just as much as drivers ed or sex ed.
Personally, I already have pretty much everything I want in life. I'd rather see America be a slightly more safe and smarter place.
In addition, I would help my family elevate out of poverty. My parents lost everything during the housing crash in the mid-00's, and they're just now recovering from the debt they incurred during that. I'd also like to restore my grandmother's car. She handed it down to me after I dropped everything and spent 2 years taking care of her, and she died as of this morning at 06:05 AM.
>Drive to US embassy Berlin
>Hy, I'm rich and I want to invest a huge sum in your wonderful country
>Move to a nice flyover land state
>Buy a nice farm house with enough land and a long dirt road
>Buy more land

>Build a company building, fill with gunsmithing tools
>In the front a store with gun racks, book shelves
>Hire gun smiths from around the country
>Start making quality replicas of all the guns that are missed on /k/
>Hey Anons, have you heard about that 900$ Stg44 replice from Teutonics Industries? They say its fucking awesome
>G11 Replica general: The "I cant believe this mad hun did it again" Edition
>Call the Company "Teutonics Industries and the Store "The hun's guns and books"
>Shake my head smiling when I read online news about the old germany and the shit that's going down here
Oh, and I would start a private collection: The history of the american pickup truck.
I cannot imagine how it must feel like living in a shitty country just wanting to be an american so bad.
Goddamnit bro, you could come over here any time. Bring your family and we kick out an equal number of flag burning hipsters for you.
They're doing it in Australia as well. The problem is partly due to the fact that you can't own land in China either. It's all state owned and you can only lease land for a 100 years at most. So the increasingly weathly Chinese middle class has to buy property abroad if they want to play the real estate game.
The average american is 25 times more likely to contract ebola than win powerball.
The average american is 25 times more likely to mutate into a half-squid-half-man hybrid and engage in hi-jinks and tomfoolery with his peers than win powerball.
The average american is 25 times more likely to stumble upon an abandoned secret bunker full of full auto weapons from around the world than win powerball.
The average american is 25 times more likely to assassinate the president, wear his skin, and masquerade as the president in front of the american people than win powerball.
The average american is 25 times more likely to witness a zombie apocalypse than win powerball.
Puerto Rico is wonderful good idea senpai. (Tfw my mom moves to america and we are dirt poor but my familia in puerto rico are rich enough to have a street named after them own mansions and ranches and shoot dem guns)
Fucking kill me dude
I'd buy a truck and hire a Pakistani man to sit in the back and stare at people as I drove around.
He would also be required to make coffee and scream hilarious insults at people on command.
