    I would fly to some third world country where they engage in radical SCI treatments that are not approved yet in the states and let them go to work on me! Oh, then I would divvy up funds between the relatives, investement in some prime real estate, and then donate funds to specific charities I have dealt with in the past.

            I'd use it to 'buy my way' into labs as donations for tours, to meet researchers and get the latest information. I'd donate a substantial amount to the Rick Hansen Foundation. I'd also buy the newest state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment for a hospital (or a private clinic) for this area.

            I'd buy a huge yacht and retire forever - at age 33 - becoming a philanthropist. lol

            I'd have to give some to my relatives - not that we see each other often - but I could guarantee they wouldn't speak to me at all if I didn't. David might be a problem in laying claim to half - might have to knock him off - kidding, I think. lol

                    ah well, my life is better in every other aspect since this happened. it bettered me as a person and my relationships.

                    but anyway, i'd put it all in a trust fund. then i'd make sure i had enough for my kids and college so they can be whoever/whatever they wanted to be...as long as they aren't bums.

                    i'd donate some equipment to my first rehab which is so old-school with sci, as well as donate some better shower chairs to said place and also shriners. i dunno what else i'd do yet.

                        There's alot of non-selfish people here. Lucky for me I am selfish, so I'd $8 million on a large home with an ocean front view and rennovate it to my needs, get the house fully stocked with art, electronics, furnature, etc. And stick the rest in the bank and live off of the interest. I'd be as giddy as a teenager gettin' it on with a hot teacher.

                              Buy a piece of land and build a sanctuary for unwanted

                              and abused animals (emphasis dogs). Hire a vet/admin staff to provide free neuturing and spaying. Start a media campaign to inform people to spay and neuter their pets. Try to get a law passed to severely punish humans on animal cruelty.

                              Not 1 dime on myself or sci.
