I'd get a holiday to Egypt. And a holiday to Greece. And a holiday to Italy. And book theatre tickets for every day of the week before and after them for various shows. And I'd like a car, because I'm learning to drive :)

Spent it traveling I think. Buy a nice home and make sure that my friends/family are all ok. Then stick the rest in an interest account and give the interest to charity ( cause thats the nice thing to do)

21-09-07, 15:24
Nice holiday for me and my friends, a fancy car, my own house ( but nothing massive) keep enough back to live comfortably, then id split the money up between my friends, family, and a few charities and watch the people i care about enjoy it

I'd buy a very nice car, then go travelling in it. I'd love to drive alone through Europe, through Russia, or up through America and Canada someday.

Then if I had enough left over, I'd buy a nice country house up north, and a city apartment in a pleasant area of Edinburgh, Glasgow or London.

i would be a ****ing excentric guy and would use it to buy an aeroplane and an airport just for me! :p
and i would buy a Ferrari obviously and also i would start living as a new Hugh Hefner :whi:

Assuming I suddenly came into vast amounts of wealth....

Clear out any college loans my sister and I have.
Trade in my existing car for a new one.
Put enough money into investments and funds for retirement, then give the rest away.

The one thing I probably would splurge on: new photographic equipment. :D

I don't wanna even go there :mis:



Although I'd probably buy out HMV :D

21-09-07, 15:38
I'd pay off my parents' debt, put some of the money away into savings and investment, then I'd sit down and figure out a budget because even millions of dollars can be ****ed away by willy-nilly spending.

Of course just about everyone would travel if they could...

Then I'd drop out of the college I'm at and enroll at a good art school and self-publish children's books, become a comic book artist, write and illustrate some graphic novels.

I'd also move into a nice brick house, something not too big so I could clean it myself, get another boston terrier puppy, then donate a good chunk of the money to diabetes research.

Oh Mark you nerd, how did I know you were gonna say that? :p

Anyways, I'd get American citizenship (you can do that if you invest a certain amount of money in the country. You can also do it with Australia I believe), get a nice house in San Francisco and travel to all 50 American states. :D

^that's a nice thought MT.

I have thought about this a lot. If I were to win or come into a large sum - 50 million or more:

I would pay off all my student loans.
I would pay off our house and invest in some properties I've had my eye on.
I would invest in my husband's business.
I would open my law practice.
I would buy a large amount of property in Jamaica and set up a legal aid clinic there, as well as a charitable educational foundation for the Jamaican children.
I would set up some trust funds, and safeguard the bulk of the money so that it would be well-cared for, I would read everything I could on finance management. I would also build or buy a large Marina.

Then with a limited amount of money:
I would pay off my sisters' homes.
I would buy my parents and brothers something nice, although they own their property outright (they are successful farmers).

I would try to get my niece to become my financial manager, she's quite brilliant. I would try to lure my sister into running the restaurant on my Marina. These steps would help to insure the safety and success of my investments.

Then with some "funny money", I would arrange a family reunion-vacation some place awesome. I would buy the car of my choice and have it converted to green energy. And I would take my husband on a month-long vacation to see Alaska, Africa, Australia, and Hawaii, before getting back to work on building something good with the money. Most of all I would want it to be a blessing to all. Instead of giving it away, I would prefer to oversee how it was used and what it was spent on, as I trust my judgment much more than most others'.

@myrmaad: What "MT" means? :p

Yes I admit I do plan a lot. I plan to try to reach most of these goals whether I win money or have to earn it myself, anyway.

As for "MT", I was talking about MadTony's wish to see all the states. My grandmother actually has seen every one of all 50 states. She is super cool. You'd never believe she's 99 years old now, but she had seen all 50 states by the 1970s.

Ooh and I'd buy my boyfriend and I a house and we could finally get married(I'd have to drag him up the aisle though :vlol:) and then buy myself a Ultra-fast PC :D...

...and I'd donate LOADS to RSPCA and other charities against animal abuse and then donate some more to Oxfam and charities like that.

And after buying everyone in our families who needs one, a house then save the rest and probably invest some too.

*sighs* The dream. :D

deepbluesea
21-09-07, 16:30
I'd buy a house, then save some in the bank, and give the rest to charity, I've seen what alot of money can do and I don't want it.

Earthcane
21-09-07, 16:52
First, I'd buy a mansion. With a Butler. With caves under the Manor.
Then I would convert those caves into a hi-tech secret lair.
Then I'd make a costume. With a Symbol. And a cape.
And vow to fight injustice. And turn fear against those who pray on the fearful...

Sound familiar?! (Lol)

You have to know how many American states there are before they let you have citizenship.

Mad Tony
21-09-07, 16:57

I'd pay every bill we have, get a second car, and buy a new house for me and my wife--one that isn't huge or anything, but is in a nice semi-secluded spot. I'd take several years off and just write. I'd write a novel and try to publish it... I'd continue writing for the rest of my life, probably, since I'd have the time but, for the first 2 years that's the Main thing I'd do. We've both talked about starting a shelter of some sort for unwanted animals--something better than what is currently in our area. That would be a big focus for us in terms of "giving something back to the world".

Scottlee
21-09-07, 17:07
I'd give all the money to charity and carry on the same.

1. Move somewhere nice
2. Buy a nice Villa/Mansion with lots of random stuff in it.
3. Buy an Island for second home :p
4. Buy a car
5. Travel around the world with mates. Preferably around south eastern Asia.
6. Buy lots of booze :)

You know.. the regular ****.

21-09-07, 17:49
Give my parents enough money for the rest of their lives, with excess.
Give a generous amount of money to every charity, cancer research the most because I lost my Nan to it, and my other Nan has cancer now.
Give money to all the people I know who aren't as well off, and tell them to spend it wisely.
Pay to be home tutored with the best tutor there is so I get good grades and will not have to suffer the torment of cruel people at high school.
Buy myself a nice house in a beautiful area, and a second house that is more secluded for when I need to escape from the world.
Buy myself an ace computer.
If a friend asked for money, and I knew that they would use it wisely and are not just sponging off me I would give it them - what's mine is yours.
Bribe my way to publicise/name and shame the people who have caused me suffering in my life.
Spoil Jamie (my boyfriend) even if he did not want me to, because I love to see him happy :D

Hey, Alive and Funky! Love the list. I cant wait to get to Japan too ;) .

Yeah, I agree with donating money, great idea.
One of the first things I'm going to do when/if I ever get a job
is register with a Charity. I feel the world sucks really bad and I wanna give something
back to society. I just dunno which one to go for, tho.
Maybe something like Unicef or the Cancer Foundation.


I'd definitely not give any to my family, tho- They'd bleed me of every penny i've got!!
:D:D:D:D

There's something else I could use my money on. :p

Buy a decent-sized house, and a couple of DDR arcade machines. Buy out the Tomb Raider franchise via hostile takeover, as well as any game companies that I think are going down the ****ter (e.g. The Sims). Then I'd obtain rights for my house to start my own little libertarian government, and isolate it from the rest of the world. I'll also dole out some of my money to the rest of my family, and will all of my property to my younger brother when I die.

Buy a house here, at least 1 in america and another in New Zealand, think about buying houses else where too, making sure my every meal was taken care of and of course making sure i was protected. They would have to be all female staff below the age of 25 and attractive with a view to having daily intercourse with them.:D;)

Buy out all radio stations in the uk and get rid of the annoying adverts and DJ's and replace them all with decent electro music and eccentric people

buy up shopping channels and quiz channels and close them down, get people to make me my own special clothes which where unlike anyone elses.

Invest money to become even richer, give money to people to cure diseases and finally get a team of scientists togeather to work on flying saucer technology. So that i might travel into space in future:D
