If you had an unheard of amount of money, say... not super huge but large enough that you could do near anything... like 33 million dollars (us currency). What would you do with it? Would you throw a huge party? buy a small island? Overthrow a government? Upto you, im justa little currious to know how creative/generous you people are.

HAM....HAM.....HAM.....HAM.....

I'd buy a few cars like Aston Martins, Jaguars, Fords, BMWs, Mercs, Farrraries - sp?, TVR's, Lambo's...etc

Then buy some luxuries like every dvd, cd and video games i every wanted.

Buy some big houses around the world; buy a company or start one; go on in holiday with all my mates; gives some money to my mates/charity.

And finally invest a few milllion for the future.


How's that sound....? (i'm sure there alot more this i cant thing off)

Put 90% in the bank and live off the interest. Use the rest to fund my own studio.

Not me. I'd just spend my time laughing at Rage.

j/k

I don't know what I'd do really. I've always had this grand idea of forming a school, completely free to all who attend. Only stipulation would be you would agree to spend at least 2 years teaching/working at the school once you finished it. I figured there could be people farming/agriculture, and working at the campus all the time. Free housing could be built, etc... by the students as a part time job to help keep the school running. I figure that with enough investment, maybe the school could keep itself running for a long long time. I feel that schools today charge way too much money for an education. $100,000+ is totally uncalled for, there is no way I'd spend that kind of money just to start out at a job making $40,000.

Anyway, just a thought. I'd also pay off all my family's bills. Debt is not a good thing.

I like his plan. i had an idea along those lines too.

Some of my plans:

Buy a car, house, pay off all my bills, ide buy my brother and sister new cars. And a new large family vehicule. Ide put lots in the bank. I would start a school.. almost a technical building.

It would be a large building with very good pc's. Anyone who wants to can teach a class thier and be paid for it, depending on thier abilities and the type of class. Ide make available almost any program neeeded. No matter the price.

i would loan for no cost, hi powered computers to some local school, schools are such an integral part of almost any field now a days... we are teaching the peopel who will use them most on some of the worst machinery.

Ide also fund come college programs non school related. you come to my business. ill talk with you personally, and decide if ill pay for your college. ill pay anything from giving you like. 1 grabd. to paying all of your educational needs... depending on your situation, arguement so on.

Its all about education.

If you payed for EVERYONEs education for colledge, then everyones gonna want to go to your school. And eventually, you'd go broke, like 5 years down the road, from paying for everyone. ...Why dont you just make it free...?

I would take a chance at everything I´ve been missing. Throw myself from a parachute, dive with some GreatWhites, make a year round world exploration, go every frigging where, more adventure tripping, Maybe even use 20 of those 33 million dollars to go up in space, I don´t know.
I surely won´t use it for educational purposes and all that shit, since after all, all I´m about to become -careerwise- have had to sweat it all along, meaning work work and more work, not eating a few of those days and more work.
Oh, would invest too, and make an art studio like Mike.
