Ok this can not possibly be a new idea for a thread but i aint seen it here yet so here goes...

If you came into a huge sum of money what would you either buy with it or use you life of leisure to do?

My dream is to buy a plot of land in the countryside with no idiot neighbours and build my own house. I love carpentry so maybe a gigantic log cabin would be for me. I'd also try to go totally self sufficient. I'd grow my own crops;) my own food and would spend my time philosophising. (not sure if thats a word)

I'd have solar or wind power and would ideally live next to a river and some woods.

In short i think I'd opt out of society and the rat race.

what do you guys want to do with this money?

I'd probably do the same thing as Jah, except for maybe the philosophizing part. I'd probably live in the middle of nowhere, but I wouldn't have a really huge house or anything, just something average size. Probably buy a Maxima:D or maybe a Bonneville for those times I went somewhere. Now, if we're talking a couple billion dollars here, I'd probably give a good chunk of it away. A few million to each of my relatives, and also a couple hundred million every year to various charities, cancer research, AIDS research and the like. Hell, if I inherited about 5 billion dollars, I'd easily be able to live off the interest alone.

EDIT: I'd also get LF some new servers, and let's just say they wouldn't need ad's anymore:D And Obi would get that ADSL he's always dreamed of:D

1) Donate $1 billion to various charities, then set up a charity fund.

2) Buy houses, cars and pay off the bills for everyone in my family.

3) go on a long, long vacation.

4) when i get back, open up a comic book store just so I don't get bored.

Get myself into the finest school in Europe (Oxford, Cambridge, UCD), set up a education fund for underprivileged children, build myself the uber-computer, compile a huge library, build a Vanderbilt-ish house in the U.S. and in Ireland.

I would buy the moon and a giant tractor beam so I could save the world from any giant meteors. Of course, after a few uses, the moon wouldnt be there anymore...

i know quite a lot of things i could do. but i dont want to throw myself into huge extravagant things or exclude myself from society.

I love my life the way it is and I want to keep it. It would just be one less stress source for me and my family.

Oh, and I cant forget buying my curreny employer, fire my boss and then quit. :D
