Hypothetical poll: You just won the lottery! What do you do with the money?

I often think about what I would do if I won the lottery. And by often think about it, I mean it consumes 99.9% of my thoughts while driving or traveling. Sometimes, I even call my mom to tell her how I'm going to buy her a huge house and brand new Nissan Maxima, her favorite vehicle, as soon as I win big.

Also, I don't play the lottery, but that isn't the point of this blog post.

It has taken years to perfect my hypothetical spending pattern after winning the hypothetical Powerball worth hundreds of millions of dollars, but I think I have my plan all figured out.

Let's just say I would spend money on paying back student loans, owning homes in my favorite places and giving to lots of charity.

I would also probably have a McDonald's fountain drink machine installed in my home because I'm pretty sure their Diet Coke is the epitome of perfection.

So...What would you do if you won the lottery?
