1 Million Bucks

Post by DownInFlames » Mon Jul 14, 2003 7:54 pm

If you were given 1 million bucks right now, how would you spend it?



Me? I would pay off my education (probably my brothers and sisters too), buy my self and my parents a house (different ones of course), put myself through flight lessons, fly around the world to all the best ski resorts (heli-boarding too), and if I couldn't think of anything else to do, then I would stay at home with my handsome husband, and put the rest in savings to pay for my kids schooling. I also want to vacation on Fiji or some other tropical island. Wheeee!!! :D

I would help those who are less fortunate. I know for a fact money doesn't change me...so I would be just as charitable, with a larger pocket book. I'm sure I'd get myself one or two things, however, I'm not sure what those things would be. Definitely nothing extravagant.

You realise 1 million isnt exactly a lot now-a-days. But if I DID have 1 mil, I would buy my mom a new car (anything she wants EXCEPT a FORD!) and I would buy myself a 02 Sunfire, 03 Eclipse Spyder, and I would sue the guy who ran the red light and hit me. (NO I havent gotten over that yet. lol)

LOL! An interview is where I got this question from! I couldn't think of anything at the time...so I guess I am making up for it, because I sure have thought about it since then.

I would donate 1/4 to the autism charity, 1/4 give to my immediate family, and keep 1/2 to keep in the bank, and use some to get a house in ENGLAND!

Definately pay for school first. Donate some to worthy causes, and put the rest away for a rainy day.

I would drop out of school, put half in savings , and with the other half, buy a tour bus. and raid my room, and the fridge in my house and garage enough to live of of for a couple of days, work part time, and life in my parents driveway until my money triples in amount then i would hit the road and see the country, then i would move to amsterdam, for obvious reasons.

Put it in the bank, and make lots more money off of it! :) I mean, I'm getting by well enough now, so I could totally wait a couple of years to actually spend any of it.

I'd put 1/4 into my education, 1/4 would be spent right away, 1/4 of it would be put in the bank, and 1/4 of it would be used to go to the states (like within 4 years), meet some of my online friends, and probably move somewhere away from where i was born just to force my family to have to make a really huge trip to come visit me :P im cruel and i dislike my parents

First, invest a quarter of it into the stock market. Then I'd buy a new car and a nice system to put into it. Move out of my parents house. Pay for my education. Start up my own production company. Put the rest into the bank.



Oh and a trip to Europe. I would backpack around Europe.

first i would pay for the rest of my brother and sister's college. then put enough aside for me to get through college and graduate school. then i would pay off my mom and dad's house and their cars. then i would have to wait until i graduate high school. i would put off college for a year and buy a plane ticket to germany and backpack through europe for a year and maybe see egypt too. then with whatever is left i would invest half and the other half i would give to charity probably an HIV/AIDS charity.

1) convert it to pounds. I can't work with dollars :wacko:

2) Get my parents out of debt

3) Get internet access in my room :lol:

4) Go swimming with dolphins and probably adopt one

5) "Give it to charity"

6) Buy my friend a car when she learns how to drive.

LOL :lol: Agreed



But I think I'd probably end up in a guitar store spending away. I'd buy a fender jazz bass, and probably a custom shop Fender guitar or something. Couple of Ibanezes, twelve string acoustic maybe? :P



I don't know what I'd do with it after that. I'd maybe go somewhere with my mates.



My education, at the moment, costs ?17 a day. I don't think I'd be paying that off...
