    A Million Bucks Would Do Plenty For Me

    A user who posted a story here mentioned that a million bucks doesn't do much in this day and age.  I suppose it's true, especially with our economy.  But a million bucks to me still sound like a lot.  Hell, I'd be thrilled with $10,000.  This is coming...

    The Five Things I'd Do.

    I'd donate a third of it to charities I support (cancer, animal rights, helping the poor). I'd buy myself a WW2 Nazi officer uniform which is customized to have a 'G' for 'Grammar Nazi' in place of the swastika. I'd buy more katanas. I'd buy my best friend a nicer...

    I'd Try to Spend It Wisley

    I'd put 5000 in an untouchable savings account. I'd by a house with furniture. I put some away for college. I'd get my poor dad out of debt, I'd by a plot of land so my mom, aunt and grandma could have the commune they wanted and have the houses built just like they want. and the...

    What I'd Do.

    I'd use it to buy my best friend a house near me, and I'd employ a design specialist to have it look really nice. Then I'd buy a wicker basket tea set, japanese weapons (ninja throwing stars and knives, katanas, a bladed fan, butterfly knives), a 9mm pistol (no bullets, I just...

    I Wish I Had A Million Dollars, Wow, Would Be Amazing!

    I'd buy this house I found for $7,500, yep yep! Renovate it, add solar panels and go as green as possible and go off the grid. Finally buy a monkey companion and build it the best enclosure outside that it could ever have in captivity and buy tons and tons of enrichment toys for...

    I Would..

    ...Well, a million dollars doesn't go a long way in this day and age. I would probably help my parents pay off bills and keep the rest just in case I needed something. Probably put it in a bank account and let it accumulate and live off it for the rest of my life, assuming I don...

    Seriously?

    Well, since half of it would go to taxes, I would spend the other half on paying off our debt and buying a new house outright, paying off my mom's house, gifting some to my siblings, fixing up this house so we could rent it out cheap or let a younger family member live here, get...

    It Would Be Life Changing

    First I would pay off all our debts. Then I would buy a modest but comfortable house. Then I would buy a car. And with the rest I would help family pay off debts.

    Honest Answer:

    I would feed as many hungry people as could. I wouldn't spend much of my hard earned money on that. Because everyone has the ability to transform their destiny and I don't need to do that for them. But if I get a million dollars--just like that- I would provide them with good...

    Travel

    I would fly myself wherever I wanted to go, taking people I love with me. And when I got to those places, I would take all my friends out to eat and party and see every attraction I possibly could. And then when the money's all gone, I'll start thinking I should've invested it.
