If you have a million dollars?
I would probably buy a beach house for 300k, put the other 700k in the bank and live off the intrest for the rest of my life, sure it would only be a small amount but I would only need to buy food, who needs power? It would get a bit lonely so I would buy a dog to go for long walks along the beach, and would probably take up a writing career. Maybe a wife too, I would enjoy that :confused: oh well, one day.

I'd buy you a green dress....

but not a real green dress that's cruel...

How are you going to get online? You need power, and at least a DSL, preferably a 1.5 Mbit cable uplink. How else are you going to survive?

450k house, 50k car, 250k in the stock market, and live off the other 250k (computer, utilities, vacations, etc).

If I had a million dollars...I would go to the bank and change it to pounds quickly.

Elijahfan 28-06-2004 04:31 PM

i get a nice house and live off the rest. mostly spending it on ice cream and dvds.

Louie 28-06-2004 05:59 PM

I'd buy a nice 300k Bentley, buy a regular 150k house, and keep the rest to live on.

gracie 28-06-2004 06:29 PM

pay for three years of school.

Kelsey 28-06-2004 06:58 PM

If you changed it to pounds, you'd only have 500k, might as well enjoy the million before it disappears too quickly :)

I would buy the house that I want in the Hollywood Hills, my BMW (or Mercedes) SUV, and fulfill a promise I made awhile ago. If that all cost more than a million, my back up plan would be fulfill the promise, and buy a racehorse.

If I had a million dollars, I'd spend a hundred grand on a fancy luxurious car and blow the rest off on lottery tickets. I'd be bound to win more :).

apoggy 28-06-2004 07:20 PM

i'd get the essentials, house, car, etc. Theninvest the rest. No savings account bollocks, that just a waste of time, when you consider inflation you don't get a good return on your money

Jacoby 28-06-2004 07:33 PM

Getting that much money quickly changes people, so I would spend it as fast as possible. I would spend it on the most ridiculous things as well. Maybe fill an olympic sized pool of grape jelly, just to say I own a pool full of jelly. And then I would buy music and movies with the rest of the money.

There's no way in hell I can spend a million dollars. However, if I did have that amount of money, honestly... this is what I would do. I would open a checking account and have a debit card(that way I wouldn't have to carry cash around and have the risk of getting jumped). Probably the biggest spending spree I would do is finally buy all the DVD's I've always wanted. Buying movies and watching them is a good way to let the time pass, because if you buy a whole bunch of crap and later find yourself bored out of your mind, you have nothing left to do but spend more(besides, you'll have to get up). I'm getting too excited, and it's not even worth it.

Mandy 28-06-2004 08:56 PM

With a million dollars? Heh. I'd retire at 20. Nah, actually, I'd probaby buy everyone in my immediate family a house, and use the rest to but Liam a Spit. :D

Ashley 28-06-2004 08:56 PM

I'd probably buy a house, and a car, a dog. With a banks help, start my production company. I'd put most of it in the bank, I could live comfortably off the interest alone. Oh yeah, pay off my credit card and take a vacation.

Vertical Vortex 28-06-2004 09:34 PM

With one million dollars...
i would buy a old rain forrest (or a part of it) somewhere in africa (i guess) and then I build there a big vila, and a fence around it... hire some ppl to guard it against animal killers, and I going to live there... happely ever after.

Hazzle 28-06-2004 10:39 PM

I'd buy a failing pubishing house, finally get one of my shitty novels published just to inflict it on the rest of the world...hopefully become famous...and then hire a hitman to kill me in the middle of Trafalgar Square (seemed as good a place as any...)

Of course I haven't done the sums, but there must be a fair few near-bankrupt publishing houses going cheap and I'm sure Sephy'd do the job for a very reasonable price...

deviljet88 29-06-2004 01:18 PM

Buy a car for parents, then chuck the rest into bank for interest until I'm old enough to use 1 million dollars properly.

DragonRat 29-06-2004 02:01 PM

I'd probably put it into a bank. Slowly, through the years, I will be able to afford some luxuries I did not have. I'd travel around the world at least once per year, and start on my writing career. Perhaps I'd bring someone along to share the stories.

Till I hit the lottery jackpot, I'll work on my biology major.

(Even though i should prbably take into the account inflation and equal rights etc. I'm just old fashioned :P)
