Using that money to go on an eBay spending spree:

The grilled cheese that looks like Jesus is not something you should be putting millions of dollars into

 

Gambling:

Because the best thing to do after beating lady luck is to spend all your winnings trying to get on her good side.

 

Buying a private jet:

I can understand buying a car maybe even a boat, but unless you know how to fly a plane or willing to pay a person’s salary, why bother?

 

Buying an island:

What if something goes wrong? You wanna be stuck there like Tom Hanks talking to a volleyball?

 

Partying every single night:

We all know what happened to Gatsby. Money can’t buy happiness…but it can help.

 

Buying a small country:

This kinda falls in with the buying an island thing, but on a much bigger scale. You have to set up a government, fund an army; why not just buy a bunch of puppies or something?

 

Buying exotic animals:

I know lions and tigers look really soft, but kittens are a good substitute. They’re also a bit safer.

 

Buying more lottery tickets:

“well I won a million bucks doing it before why not try it again for more?” This goes hand in hand with gambling but just a bit dumber.

 

Dinner with a celebrity:

You may want to have dinner with them, but deep down under all of the money you surrounded them with, I doubt THEY want to be with YOU.

 

Running for president:

Okay, just because you somehow made a fortune off of random chance does not mean that you would make a great leader by any stretch of the imagination.
