    Buy a huge backcountry station, and keep farming it until it's all gone

    I am incredibly level headed and mature and realise that the odds of my winning 44 million dollars are extremely long, however as you have posed the question, my well considered answer is ............ I would ..........GO BAT SHIT FUCKING CRAZY!

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    By a station, get a good manager on base and profit share for it, then cruise around building batches wherever I feel like.

    Since I was at the physio today I went and got one also. I know I have more chance of kicking my own arse. But what the hay.

    If you pay only 33% tax, on fixed term deposit, $40mil would give you $19584.60 in interest per week...just saying
