First I would get debt free, then I would leave my family behind and move to the other side of the planet.
Change my name, die my hair, I think I might look good as a blonde, and spend some time just focusing on me.
Vote for me! I will fix everything, giving everyone health care, food, a home with high speed internet and a good paying job, & kill everyone who makes more then $1 million per year &give their money to the poorest 10%.

I got it from multiple record deals and a couple of movies.

I would live life to the max, with all my friends. Pretty much name anything and I would be doing it.

And Africa may get a few billion :)

And you all have plans,

Step 1) Set aside enough that I can live a comfortable life off the interest.
Step 2) Fund Alcor membership.
Step 3) Take half of what's left and invest in whatever research sounds interesting and/or likely to have a decent payoff.
Step 4) Move out of the country, go to whichever First World country sounds most appealing and where I speak the language (probably the US or Canada)
Step 5) Buy an abandoned missile silo and build a supervillain lair protected against the most likely apocalypse scenarios one can protect against. I won't live there full time, but it's nice to have it, just in case.
Step 6) Buy three copies of every movie, game, book, etc. I ever pirated.
Step 7) Learn as much science, math, foreign languages and handy skills I can cram into my brain.
Step 8) Travel the world.
Step 9) Help out friends in need.
Step 10) Buy all those things I thought were awesome but too expensive at a rate not exceeding one per month.

And I'm sure I'll find some use for whatever's left, if any. I'll probably re-evaluate my goals at several points, mostly due to steps 7 and 8.

As for how I got it... I have no idea.
What is not the answer to this question?

Save at least 1 billion for college, about 50 billion more for if/when I/family need it, and probably donate the rest to various charities.

I can't believe it!
Both TM and I started games based on having $75 billion!
What are the odds of that?
...actually they might be very good; I read somewhere that the richest person on earth has just under $75 billion, so if you had that much then you would be the richest person on earth.
That's when I started dreaming about what it would be like to have that kind of money.

I won the lotto.

First I would pay off all of my taxes and debts for now and the future, those of my best friends and family, and a few people a see on the street, just to make their day.

Then I would spend the rest on a software that lets me hack life.

Then I would hack my brain to erase unwanted memories and let me sleep. (Funny, I keep moaning about this stupid dream, when all I'm doing about it is complaining :P)
