Ithink I'd buy a new truck and buy an all expense paid trip to the Rachel Ray show for DS. I think it would cheer him up.

$10,000 for the parts to build my own CubeSat, $40,000 to get it launched from Baikonur (though the price has probably gone up with the decline of the dollar since last I checked).

pay off things, down to my mortgage, but a really nice server/workstation setup for my home, maybe a trike if the wife would go for it. Take the cruise she wants, or both of them in fact, anything left over in the investment account for use later on
