Winning the powerball lottery tomorrow probably won’t happen to most people, but it may very well happen to one person. Sadly, winners of the lottery are notorious for losing all the money and going bankrupt soon afterward. This mainly because they spend all their money on rather — ahem– stupid things and don’t invest any of it.
If you happen to be one of those reckless people who are living life to the max, see below for our comprehensive list of stuff you can actually spend your entire $1.4 billion on — in one year.
May you have the best year of your life.

You’re looking at The Playboy Mansion, just put up for sale for $200 million. Since the deal will be structured as a “living estate,” any buyer will have to allow the mansion’s famous resident, 89-year-old #HughHefner, to continue renting the house until his death. Hefner bought the mansion in 1971 for a then-record $1.05 million. The home is unlikely to fetch anywhere near $200 million, according to brokers. The @playboy #mansion has 29 rooms, including a wine cellar, home theater, separate game house, tennis court and of course, the swimming pool with a cave-like grotto. (Photo: Getty images)
