Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Pretty I guess, but boring. Not something I'd choose to hang on my wall.

I bought a lottery ticket yesterday. Something I rarely do, better things to spend fiat $s on and all cheers.gif but i did. So i'm going to win CDN$17 million today. Of course only half will be mine, I do have a better half chuckle.gif

So what's the first thing I should do with it? I'm thinking charter a flight to Anchorage for some fat Alaska King Crab legs washed down with Guiness. yay.gif

Maybe I could go to Alaska, pick up a C-130 plane load of King Crab and fly to Finland for the Guiness. party0003.gif

If I won that amount of cash I would buy Isla San Pedro off the coast of Chile.

Quote:A 16,000 acre island sanctuary, Isla San Pedro offers a doorway into the ancient world, where unique species of flora and fauna still flourish, and history is an open book.

Located in the southern region of Chile in South America, Isla San Pedro offers stunning views of the lower Andean Mountains, natural lakes, and a wealth of natural history. Darwin surveyed this Patagonian paradise in 1834. Roads have been constructed around the island as well as some beautiful rustic cabins. In addition to the island, a 2.5 acre parcel in Quellon within walking distance of the airport containing three cottages, one boathouse and dock, 28 foot fibreglass boat and truck will be included.

Alaskan King Crab is the absolute best! Unfortunately, like oysters on the halfshell and so many other types of seafood, you can't get it here. More exotic seafood like scallops etc can be purchased frozen, but the cost is unreal.
We can't afford a second mortgage to have dinner coffeetime.gif (Not that we could afford the first either lol.gif )
