Actually I'd go to the high school where my business is located, and have the students who are interested; write a 1 page letter on why they would like to own a cell phone store. I'd then pick one student and give him the store. I'd also provide them with a scholarship to get a 4 year business degree. I'd stay for about a month and show them the ropes. and let them go. They can succeed or fail, it's up to them. Then I'd go to Villalobos and volunteer there for a couple months. and donate a couple hundred thousand to them. http://www.vrcpitbull.net/dog/

I've thought about this before. I thought this was a great idea until I came up with a better one.

1. Rent the whole place out where the convention is and if you can get thereneverythimg else for the week is on me. Food,alcohol and events.

2. Build a track and any member rides for free and only asked for a donation for the fence fund or to pay the amber lamps for being there.

I'd eventually own my own race team, whether I raced or just managed would depend on how fast I eventually get/got

Give my family a few mill each
Buy a few houses and some land
Go travelling for a few years
Settle down and buy all the cars and bike and toys I've always wanted
Start a charity organisation that provides funding for innovative ideas and start up companies.

Powerball is $550,000,000 right meow. Cash option is $360,000,000 Hopefully after taxes ya should walk away with $200,000,000. At a conservative 5% a year in interest, you'd make $10,000,000 a year. That breaks down to $27,397 a day: $1,141 an hour: $19 a minute. So ya can make $100 taking a shit... Sounds good to me

I've always thought it would be cool to have an organization that becomes associated with tracks throughout the nation to allow for handicapped people to enjoy the thrill of a motorcycle. Make some sort of superbike with a sidecar to allow for the person to ride along(granted not at a "race" speed) but just to be able to get somewhat of the feeling we all get going around the pavement.
