View Full Version : What would you do if...

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

Pretty simple huh? If you don't get it, make it 1$,

So what would YOU do if one day you won a million dollars?

I for one would go buy super tech stuff and reserve some for a good college.

Use it as the starting funds for my plans of world domination.

Evry little bit counts.

December 17th, 2008, 8:32 PM
first thing....get away from this country....then...buy a house, maybe a car...and well..clothes haha
the remaining money would be saved for a future emergency

December 17th, 2008, 8:42 PM
I would start off by donating some of it to my local no-kill animal shelter that is probably gonna end up closing due to lack of funding. I would also donate it to other charities and then keep maybe about 10K or so for myself (which is still a lot more than I have now)

December 17th, 2008, 8:58 PM
I would invest it into buying a house.
Depending on how much the house costed, maybe a car, but I doubt that.

OMG...college for sure. Graduating without debt? I could go to the university I'm trying to get into and still have medical school covered. Snap.

...I guess the Serena Williams school in Africa can have some. XD

A million dollars aint that much anymore. Heck, my house is worth 1mil+ but it's nothing that special.

Donate enough to the government that they wouldn't tax me
Buy programs that I have shareware versions of
Buy two external hardrives - one for my Pokemon/anime and one for when my original one becomes too full
a small tatami mat (always wondered how that stuff felt)
see-in-the-dark goggles
neon lights for my room
a plasma screen tv for playing video games. With my money, I'd try to get a full screen instead of a wide one because I never watch movies or actual tv on mine and two out of three of my systems are in 4:3 therefore it'd be a total waste.
and the rest I'd save

it's not like I have money problems like so many I read about. I don't have a job but my money is almost up to 2,000 thanks to my recent graduation.

December 17th, 2008, 9:36 PM
Buy a really awesome cottage house in France. And go live there.

December 17th, 2008, 10:38 PM
I'd probably invest most of it so I'd have a nice secure financial future. Then I'd take a couple thousand of it and buy ridiculous amounts of thing I don't need at all =P

December 17th, 2008, 11:29 PM
Fill my house up with Cheese-Wiz.

December 17th, 2008, 11:40 PM
In order of importance:

1) Pay off the rest of what college years I have left, plus grad school fees.
2) Buy my own house somewhere out in the quieter part of town.
3) Buy my own tuba. (Yes, I'm a band nerd).
4) Use the rest of the money for whatever is needed along the way.

1 million dollars really isn't that much considering how much a person spends yearly. If I won a million yearly… then that'd be different.

I'd buy a new house.
Bunch of clothes,
A car.
My future kid's college.

December 18th, 2008, 3:06 AM
If I won $1M I would put it in my piggy bank. I will spend it in emergency or in future use.

December 18th, 2008, 3:14 AM
Split it between the family, and with that, I'd buy some games 'n' things to help me pass the time away. But more importantly move my family into a nice house 'n' then save it for things like college.

December 18th, 2008, 3:18 AM
I would slap myself and tell myself to wake up from this stupid and childish dream. :D

December 18th, 2008, 4:36 AM
I'd buy some new birds since my current ones need to learn not to fear me. Then save it or something.

December 18th, 2008, 5:01 AM
I would donate half of it to the UN or Red Cross. The rest is up to me! Woot!

December 18th, 2008, 5:11 AM
I would buy myself a 100 inch full HD plasma screen television.

But that would only be the beginning....

December 18th, 2008, 5:18 AM
...$1M before taxes or after taxes? :( I'll assume after.

I'd set aside more than enough (just in case) to pay off all my education and living expenses during education. Maybe grab a nice apartment somewhat near school (or near a bus route ♥) so I'd never have to worry about accomodation. Then I'd probably splurge a bit; maybe pick up a fair few (or a lot of XD) video games, a nice big HDTV to play them on, get new computers, everything. :] Maybe a nice vacation too.

The rest would be saved and/or invested. :B

I'd buy my presidency in a poor country. After that I'll take it's army and rule the world. Zimbabwe for the win! :P

But seriously, I would use it to go to Oxford University. If I have enough money afterwards, I would buy a car or something.

December 18th, 2008, 9:54 AM
use it to buy something for my parents or buy a new laptop... (il go with new laptop :D)

December 18th, 2008, 10:03 AM
Good topic. I would move up to Chicago and pay for my living expenses, edcuation expenses, and my certain someone's education expenses, as I'm sure he wants to go to college.

I'd keep a large portion of the money saved for later in life, such as trying to get my poetry published and for my future children.

Good Lord. Where has my life gone to? I just planned my future with money I don't have.

December 18th, 2008, 10:40 AM
College funds then eventually buy me teh superest computer and a PS3 and all the super games. Then a car. Then thats it. Im 15 thats all i need!

December 18th, 2008, 11:27 AM
Buy a moderately sized house, put some away for a rainy day...

And then buy as much crap as I possibly could. I've had my eye on a vintage popcorn machine that I've wanted for a while now. I could buy that, along with a bunch of other vintage machines, and make myself a little home theater. <3

Put it into the bank, finish up school, use the money to go to college, finish college, get a job, build up finances, get married, have kids, be at kid's wedding, die.

I'd finish paying off my student loans and then take the amount left over from that and place a good majority of it in my savings account to gain interest, the rest I'd spend to give my family the best holiday ever!

December 18th, 2008, 1:33 PM
No question - first thing I'd do would be to pay off the $17,000 college loan hanging over my head. Then I'd put aside enough to pay for the rest of my college out-of-pocket.

But that still leaves me with a pretty good chunk of money, so I guess the next thing I'd do would be to buy a car, because I really need one. Not just any car... a 1969 Camaro SS (http://www.collectormotors.com/carsoldpix/1969CamaroSS.jpg), which I will paint silver-blue with white racing stripes, and then I will redo the interior to white. And then, if I have the money left over, I will rip the guts out of the car and overhaul it to make it more fuel-efficient.

Yep, I think that'll about sap the million.

December 18th, 2008, 1:41 PM
I'd use it to pay my way through college. Whatever was leftover after that, I'd use to start my life, get a car and a house and a good job.

Ohhhooo a Million Dollars eh. (Turns out $2M is the average amount a person gets in a lifetime in the US) First...Stow away money for College. Then pay a down payment for a house that my parents would want. Splurge "modestly" on what I want/Need. (Car, PC, etc) Save the rest for the future (I'm not being selfish. Job security in this economy is as real as a Shaymin appearing right in front of me.) So yes...I'll be more positioned to contribute to society if I get life security in order first. ^__^

December 18th, 2008, 2:03 PM
Buy gold coins. With the world economy the way it is, I'd get out of any monetary system as soon as possible. Then I'd hold onto it until I was the richest man alive.

December 18th, 2008, 2:40 PM
Probably set aside some for my parents bills. Meaning pretty much all of it is spent hahaha. Well, I suppose we could buy a bigger house and when I go to uni we could use the money for paying off the debt

A million dollars aint that much anymore. Heck, my house is worth 1mil+ but it's nothing that special.

Ouch. I live in a council house o.O

Keep it until after nine years from now when I go to college.

December 19th, 2008, 1:28 AM
Reserve a good college sport for myself, give some off to charity, buy the family some nice things and myself some things. The rest? It goes in the bank 'till I'm 18.

December 19th, 2008, 7:34 PM
I just save it up. lol And perhaps use I use it to make a business and make more money.

December 20th, 2008, 2:47 PM
I would save some for school,
give some to charity,
then use the rest for mindless self indulgence

December 20th, 2008, 3:45 PM
Invest everything. I'm doing fine without the million, and I'm sure I'd still be fine in about ten years time, at which point I'd withdraw it all.

December 21st, 2008, 2:06 AM
Get a laptop and donate the rest.

December 21st, 2008, 8:01 PM
Easy... burn it. (Don't ask...)

December 22nd, 2008, 2:11 AM
Start my own independant western animation studio =D and I would name it "Candy Cartoons"... or something that's not stupid

December 22nd, 2008, 4:02 AM
I'd buy myself a really great laptop and then give the rest of the money to my family and relations. God knows they need it more than I.

December 22nd, 2008, 11:28 AM
Buy a big house on a bunch of land with a bunch of Hunter Jumper horses. I'd have my own maids and stablehands too. :D A nice old irish style barn made out of stone and a cottage style house.

December 23rd, 2008, 1:10 PM
i would make a movie about my life and my friends

December 24th, 2008, 9:35 AM
Probably buy out Serebii xD

kissing. raindrops
December 24th, 2008, 12:52 PM
I would..
1. Buy a Mercedes. <3
2. Buy a puppy. <3
3. Go shopping!!! <3<3

December 24th, 2008, 2:32 PM
I'd burn it. Dollars have no worth to me. I need Euros. >_>
