Right now if you took the lump sum, you would be giving up about 100M after taxes.

$345M vs $245M after taxes

Re: WOW $500 Million

I'll take 245 to have it right now, because my luck I would die after 3 years and not get shit after that

Re: WOW $500 Million

I would take it now.

Pay off the house, extend it and make it bad ass. Buy a GTR, make it able to pull a trailer for TD's. Mod the crap out of my bike's and car's. Buy a small helicopter. Pay for the kids college. Give alot away to people I see in need. Invest almost all of the rest after hiring a good financial advisor specifically for investments.

Mods So Far: Flashtune (Thanks to OhioYJ) , Puigg windscreen, Integrated tail light, Fender eliminator, Passenger peg delete, EXUP delete, short stock muffler/unpacked, graphic delete, 8000K HID's
