I'd sell my place here, and buy a condo downtown for all my shit. Then I'd travel as much as I could, golf clubs on my back.

Once I need to settle down again, I'd probably get a place in San Diego and Cape Town.

It will also be nice to finally be able to afford the higher-quality hookers.

I'm thinking like Al Capone. Stay in my modest dwelling here in my hometown of Akron. I'd fix it up, but I'm not interested in land here as much as power. I could buy off those in office and in uniform, and live like a king.

Realistically, some isolated place in the Rocky's where the only thing that would bother me is a bear.

I'd caution anyone who hasn't actually lived in Miami that it is not a town that's good for living in. It's a vacation town. Living there sucks. If Florida weather is what you're looking for, you'd do better to get a place in Palm Springs or Boca Raton, which are also just better (i.e., less crime-ridden) neighborhoods. Me? I'd just get a nice big house right where I am.

Sounds like San Diego, to me....( the earth doesn't shake that much as compared to the Big City a little north)

I haven't been to New England, so I'd go to see if I can legitimately rule it out. If so...

Chicago! Lakefront apartment, somewhere near Navy Pier. Or maybe in Wrigleyville.

This must happen - I can't win it if I'm not in it, so off I go.

I'd get a nice place right here. Well, not RIGHT here - outside of the city a bit, with a nice view of the lake (and at least 20 acres of nothing, too).

Nagoya, Japan. Quietest big city on earth. Within 3 hours bullet train of anywhere worth going to more than once in Japan.

Hawaii is a vacation state.

Of course, you'd have theoretically hit the jackpot so maybe paying $7 for a box of cornflakes wouldn't bother you. And unlike the general population, you'd have a/c, you billionaire rat you.

Hawaii also has horrid traffic, some BAAAAD neighborhoods to be in after dark, racial lines of demarcation everywhere, rampant use of a pidgin English, and a high rate of property crime because we lack the facilities to incarcerate all the assholes. Oh, and we tried to wipe out weed and that left us with one of the nation's worst crystal meth problems.

All that being said, it's way better than Oklahoma.

I have no idea. I think I would rather spruce up the place I have and sped the rest of my time and money traveling to all the places I have not been - and their have been a lot!
