I would probably buy music lessons from deadmau5 or other Grammy winning electronic artists.

I'd buy some mountain-top strip-mined land that had been reduced to moonscape, then buy several million blocks of ice and hire some workers to transport and lay out half of the blocks of ice atop the mountain so that they spell out the phrase "Melt!" when viewed from above.

The other half I'd have arranged to spell out "Melt!" vertically, in "letters" large enough in size so that it could be viewed from a Interstate highway and other points located many miles away from the site.

Having both viewing angles covered, while waiting for spring to come and melt the ice, I'd begin construction of the world's tallest aeolian wind harp on the other side of the mountain, which would hopefully be completed by Memorial Day.

Then I'd wait for the either the aliens in a spaceship or droves of hippie chicks in VW buses to begin showing up... (in the best case scenario, both would)

Finally something that genuinely qualifies as weird!

Wow. That's a real fantasy, almost utopia.

The rich guy down the street bought a bunch of llamas to roam around his larg-ish yard. Is that weird? I guess the parameters of weird expand in direct proportion to worth.

Here's one. Living in California, how about if I lease a new car every six months to avoid having to have a license plate?

I would get my own personal mechanic who works for me and only me .
I would buy the Concorde airplane , I'm rich so I can afford it .
I would buy a few acres of land and build a very big house on it and my Garage will be the size of a warehouse . The cheapest car I will have might be a 2013 Corolla. There' a lot more stuff that I'd buy .

I'd buy a villa in Monaco and then start the car collection.

Audi S5 (for practicality )
Audi R8 V10
McLaren MP4-12C Spider
Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
Aston Martin Vanquish
Koenigsegg Agera R

Probably some other cars.

Maybe a yacht
Maybe a jet

And then I'd donate some to charity.

Depending on how much I won, I would buy a couple (or several if i won more) houses and rent them out. And then buy my own of course, and live there. :-)

I would buy a lot of land out in the middle of no where, build a self sufficient house on said land and tell the world to screw off.

Most of these replies are depressingly conventional. Cars and property? Come on....

I play the lottery a lot and have a boring job at times, I have thought about this a lot. Unfortunately, I'm married with three kids so most of my dreams are shot.

1. Bigger house but not crazy big.
2. Whiten teeth (just hate looking at them)
3. Full body hair removal including face. (not legs or arms)
4. Personal trainer, my house.
5. personal trainer, for my wife.
6. Enroll kids in more after school stuff since I'll be home to drive em and pay for it.
7. At least four vacations a year (2 summer (one always involves a beach), 1 winter with family and 1 ski trip with buddies when we get super high and act like dicks for three days)

Sorry but "hookers and blow" is about as conventional as it gets.

I think this may fall in the "weird" category: buy all the exotic succulent plants in the world to be placed in my enormous backyard in my brand new home and have an expert gardener take care of it for me.

Of course I'll do the conventional stuff like buying certain family members a home, paying off debts, and new fancy cars...

I think buying ALL the succulent plants in the world certainly falls into weird. I approve!
