Good news, guys!  No one won the Mega Millions jackpot.  We’re still in play!

Things you can possibly buy with your 1.6 billion cash prize…

Almost any team in the NHL.

One of roughly 20 NBA franchises including the Spurs, Pistons, and Raptors.

Select from about half the teams in Major League Baseball.

The Buffalo Bills.

More specialty channels than you would think (Plus the perk of being able to cancel the professional cancelers!).

Several comic book companies.

At least twelve seasons of an awesome sci-fi series.

Swimming pools full of this bottled water:

Balmoral Castle.

A small, modest country like Lichtenstein.

Let’s not waste time, people!  The time to start planning is now!

  1. I don’t really want much – just two more awesome seasons of this little show called Dark Matter. Any else beyond that is just gravy.

  2. Off the top of my head I can think of the final two seasons of a certain Sci Fi show that I would pay to produce just for my own entertainment. Then share them for free with my fellow fans of this Dark Matter that I will not name. Oops, Did I accidentally name it there?

  3. I have a plan, but it involves large spacecraft and mining asteroids… maybe orbital solar stations.

  4. I would order the rest of Dark Matter oh and finish it at my new film production studio too.

  5. I got my ticket and I’ve got big plans – sci-fi and comic books are on the list 🙂

  6. well that might be true, but I will save my dollars and buy some local beer. Speaking about new programing, I have purchased a new receiving device for my computer Eyetv 3. since the age of digital the old analog system doesn’t work. Since I only have broadcast tv I was able to cut the cable/dish tv. There is a local station as the channels are now spit and I have at minimum 36 channel as opposed to the old system with 5-8 channels plus the PBS. There now is a dedicated channel named Comet which just broadcasted SG-1, Andromeda, Babylon 5, and Space 1999. I think this might be a good choice for Dark Matter and more.
    Also I do like HI 5-0. I have been there and the picture remind me of the time spent. I remember my hotel near the park close to dead volcano (I believe it is called Diamond Head, my TBI took hold for a while). The writing is not as tight as on DM. There are times when the main characters are in the car talking, but they are not looking at the road or driving with care.

  7. I would by a certain US network that used to broadcast fantastic Sci-Fi and buy or bankroll the return of several of our favorite canceled shows.

  8. I don’t have a ticket, but still … Dark Matter, of course. And SGU. We’ll use CGI if actors are unavailable.

    I’d stay in this house, but have a housekeeper, a companion who is also a chef and the chauffeur.

    Fund art locally and at Burning Man.

  9. That jackpot has gotten insanely too high. I think they should stop it and start drawing numbers until they have a winner, or two, or three.

  10. I think I’d buy myself a trip to space, build a publishing company and various other creative companies. Produce stuff for TV and movies or whatever moving picture thingy with sound.
    Also, an private internship at Weta Workshop.
    And some nice places to live around the globe.
    Of course, I’ll bring friends along.

  11. A decent channel for science fiction and fantasy that have a decent mix of new content and playback of old series and movies 🙂

  12. My first priority of course would be Patrick. I think I would get him into a private facility to care for him. I’d give a lot to charitable organizations, especially Patrick’s autism school (perhaps fund a private house for them so he could be their first resident and stay there the rest of his life). I would set up a trust fund for my nieces. I may buy a condo/apartment here and then rent it out until we are ready to move from the house to the condo as we age. Then after all that I’ll have plenty of money to do fun things like Dark Matter funding, maybe Stargate stuff. I’d like to find a vacation house too. I’d like to do some traveling, too.
