You would probably have to draw out about $8-10K a month to even come close to spending it. It seems that unless your other assets are gone and you have created debt, a tired old dude would struggle to spend it...unless you are trying to fund your kids retirements.
And also, if drawing a larger amt from the 401k, combined with SS will lead to being in a higher tax bracket.
