I would have my dream house built.
I would buy each member of my family a home or pay off their mortgage.
I would take Mario & Lucy to Tokyo!
I would go on a cruise <3
I would go to Hawaii and maybe move there.


So what about you?

Well, since I already have alot of Money and live in Hawaii, it's hard to think of what to spend it on.

I'd buy a future car (Corvette C6)
I'd give my older sister and brothers some of the money for rent

that's about it

I've never been a money person nor have I ever been veryinterested in material posessions. So these sorts of questions are always the hardest for me.

It depends on the amount, but if it was a lottery win of several million:

First of all, I'd pay off all my grandma's debts she got into trying to help out my mum years ago. I'd also have her living in a better area in a one-floor house - those stairs she takes to get to the flat take a lot out of her I'd also make sure she's comfortable with money.

That'd take about half a million.

My parents are actually about 10 times more well-off and comfortable than my grandma, selfish buggers never help her out. Especially since my mum owes her. But I'd give them some to invest in both my brother's future education (hopefully that's what they'd use it for).

Now, the rest of the money. I'd make a plan to invest it somehow... I don't know how to make money from money so its something I'd have to think very carefully about. But if that were successful, I'd travel with the money I made (and still have lots in savings) and visit other cultures all over the world. I'd study how things work. Dangerous I know, but it'd teach me things about the world. Then I would plan to see how I could use my saved money to make the world a better place for people who are suffering.

It would be hard to carry out all that, but with lots of money comes a lot of responsibility.

How much money we won?

If I know then I can answer.

I would TRAVEL! :D

I'd go everywhere and anywhere, and I'd avoid large hotels and things when possible. I'd use the money for getting to my destinations, and for food, and that'd be it. *__* I'd love to do that so much.

I'd also want to take care of my family, of course, as previous replies have stated. Specifically my niece, who's seven and a half and has an insane mother. ~_~'

I would live in a Big mansion in Tokyo, Japan. :D

I would also buy a nice car. ^.^

I would give part of it to my family.

I would use the rest to buy the things I need. ^.^

World Domination!

Okay I'd buy the Pokémon Comapany.

Incase we dont win that much money though,

I'd like to buy a nice house in Switzerland.
Get a dog [Preferabbly a Husky]
Buy some Corn flakes [lol :D]
And probably store the rest for family & my educational needs.

I know some stuff I would do
These people are building a luxury condo apartment building right by my school. My school's rises over 4 floors and is near the top of a very tall hill. The place where I hang out in school, you can see the Statue of Liberty... well you could see it. But now that stupid condo building is stealing the view. Therefore if I had money, I'd pay them to take off the levels of their building.

I'd also help pay for some crap that needs to be done around our house. We need a good contractor to put siding on, since our house is half done and half covered in the original shingles.

I'd get those Japanese ac things installed in every room of our house

I'd buy tatami for my room

I'd get a deck attached onto the back of our house. Right now we have sliding doors out onto a series of unsturdy stones. You have to be careful when you walk out.

I'd buy a bunch of manga books that I've always wanted

I'd get all the Pokespecial and Dengeki Pikachu I could imagine

I'd maybe get some anime dvds just so I could watch them on my dad's new flat screen lcd tv 8D

I'd give some of the money to my sister and her boyfriend who just got a new apartment but aren't moving in yet.

I'd give lots of the money to my other sister who's always short on cash. It'd help pay for her car and the cellphone that she just dropped in the toilet.

I'll probably come up with more

I would love to travel and purchase myself a new car. I would also give most of it to my dad. He is always in financial issues and I'm sure he would need it more that I do. He needs a home and better source of transportation. He is also schooling right now, so he can use the money for his educational needs.

Put enough aside to pay for my entire post-secondary education, plus extra for living expenses. Then... I guess I'd buy a ton of video games and fandom stuff. 8D Yay materialistic possessions!

I would put it in the bank, and live off the interest

Merzbau

I'd buy some things I want, maybe some musical instruments, a small house somewhere, some recording equipment, and keep the money in the bank to live on the interest. Just me, and...maybe one other person.

I'd do whatever the moment shows best. I know I'd for sure go to a Canucks game in Vancouver, that'd be sweet.

O wait, I know!!! I'd fulfill my promise of making waffles for every single member of PC.


In unrelated news, Cross is back!

You know what? That's a plan. *high-fives*
Although I don't know if I'd buy a ton of video games... I don't have that many I want to buy right now. XD;;;

I'd probably also look into bigger things to buy, like a house or a car, or maybe even traveling to a few places I've always wanted to visit. I'm not sure, though. All I really know is I want college paid for. >_<;; And getting a few things I've wanted for awhile would also be nice. :3

Well, see, thing is, if you had that much money (the amount wasn't specified so my mind automatically makes that unlimited, rofl), you wouldn't have to be picky. If you saw a game or something, and you had heard at least some good things about it, you could just pick it up to see for yourself instead of saving up for just the games you want/are looking forward to. 8D It'd be pretty cool... albeit wasteful if you end up not liking the game. XD But that's what eBay's for, right? 8D

I'd flaunt it in front of people living on welfare/workers getting paid minimum wage.

Then I'd buy a decent sized house for myself, quit work, and spend the rest of my days relaxing without a care in the world.

Well, If I ever hit the lottery or ran into like say, 9 or 10 million dollars I'd definitely put enough away for college. I'd buy the family (Me and my dad and little brother) a nice new house. And then I'd finish college and then travel. Travel the world. I'd visit the UK, Japan, Italy, Maybe travel around europe a bit. See the sights. Get to know people. Then I'd come back home to the USA and live off of the rest of the money. Take it easy. Use my college education to get a decent job or something.

As for material possesions I Dont really know. I'd buy clothes and necessities and a few things that I want. I'm not the type of person that wants much though.

Here's what I'd do:

I'd invest a portion (oh, say $3'000) in a product with an intrest rate of 12%. With the remainder of my money, I would do one of two things: Buy a major corperation and live off of that, or go to college, buy a house and a car, and give a portion to a charity based on proper schooling.
