When the Florida Lottery asked Shane Missler, 20, of Port Richey, Florida, what he thought his odds were of winning the lottery, he said he "had a feeling." Not even the strongest intuition could prepare him for what happened next: he actually won the fourth biggest jackpot in Mega Millions history, one-time sum of $281,874,999 of the total $450 million. First, he called his brother. The next day he told his father over coffee (I can just imagine him spitting an entire mouthful all over the table — but Shane could now buy him a new coffee so it's all good). The 7-Eleven where Shane bought the ticket will receive a $100,000 commission.
According to the state lottery's statement, Shane hopes to use the money to "pursue a variety of passions, help my family and do some good for humanity." That's sweet. Here's what I would do:
-Have each of my friends and family members close their eyes, spin the globe, and buy them a ticket to wherever their finger lands.
-Expand homeless shelters to support the growing need during the winter, while covering the rising costs of feminine hygiene products and diapers for new mothers.
-Adopt so many cats I can't see my floor. Those vaccinations and microchips don't come cheap.
-Help rebuild entire developing communities by enhancing medical resources, schools, fresh water facilities, and clean and renewable energy sources.
-Donate to every and any charity and non-profit I could think of, especially Crohn's and Colitis Canada, which affects my father.
-Not think twice about ordering extra guac.
-Send you to college or pay off your student loans if you ask nicely. Or compliment my hair. I can be bribed.
-Leave envelopes of cash lying around the city with an ominous note saying something like "You're doing amazing, sweetie."
-Feel like a total boss saying "keep the change" no matter how much it is.
-Type in random numbers and Venmo strangers a bunch of money for no reason.
-Run a soup kitchen or food bank that also operates as a safe, warm place to hang out.
-Upgrade to three-ply toilet paper.
