This is why my parents doesn't like me telling we're rich or are very fortunate, because people start being dicks to you for no reason at all.


It's not a matter of being a dick because you're rich, but rather because you have no proof to back up your claims. I could say I was in the army and killed 50 men but, without evidence, my statement doesn't hold much validity.

instead of spending all the money in 5 years, i would spread it along and not spend too much. whatever i would have left when i die would go to my kids/someone important

You would have to be an idiotic spender to spend all 10 million in 5 years anyways.

I'd probably Buy a Koenigsegg Agera R, or a Bentley Continental GT, a reputable business (maybe a cafe' or a McDonalds franchise), buy a house somewhere in the hinterland and live off the interest.

 

Or I could go crazy with my money on this website

Buy a small house in a little village out in the country. Buy a decent car (nothing more than £50,000) and just spend my days living off the interest I am making from the rest of the money I still have.

Stop being such a jealous little child. Which I realize may be hard to do as your whole worldview is rooted in jealousy.

Jealousy of the wealthy and fortunate. Some communists can argue from a position of actual economics and some logic. You just seem to argue from the "the rich are bad and need to be murdered as violently as possible" position.

I can assure you my analysis of class-based society--specifically capitalism--is just a tad more than "lol rich people sux", and that these views are rooted in the desire for a free society--not because I wanna drive around in a BMW, or something. Basically:

I'd buy property, renovate and rent it out. 

 

Start a small ebay business selling LEGO.

 

Buy a farm. You need one when the apocalypse hits.

 

Dress up as a beggar. If someone takes compassion on me I'll reward them with $1000!

 

Nothing for charity. None of that money has any lasting impact on the people its meant for.

I don't live for money, I live for life. But that typed, if I were to have that kind of money all of a sudden, it would enable me to just live comfortably.

Y'know, not have to worry about the next due bill or the slight debt you have. I don't care for materialistic things.

I wouldn't need anything near that amount to do the things I want to do.

 

I guess I would probably move to Sweden or in the countryside where my parents grew up. I'd then dedicate my time to being a full-time independent musician and finding a partner.

In St. Louis. I was grabbing those figures from nearby towns like Creve Coeur, Town and Country, and Ladue. It's literally all in the area when it comes to living here vs housing quality.

A nice house with at least 100m to closest neighbour in southwestern Norway's farmland - One of my closest friends lives like this and I'm so jelly

I'd build a big garage and a few cars (relatively cheap 70s- early 2000s SAABS) and fill the house with expensive musical instruments, like a Hammond tonewheel organ and a proper concert grand. I'd also build a studio worthy of album recordings

£10m is a lot of money. Still ... it's always nice to dream.

 

Realistically speaking, I'd pay off the rest of my parents' mortage and buy them either a house by the sea, or an RV. Opinion is split. Mom wants the house by the sea, dad wants to live out the rest of his days travelling around the country in an RV. I'd be nice for a change and give my brother enough money to get him his driving license and possibly a car, and put an equal amount aside/in a trust for my sister seeing as how she's 12 and therefore probably not responsible with her money. I'd give some to close friends and family, and donate some to charity/to a cause I want to donate it to.

 

Then, it's just the simple matter of buying myself a car, a house, and taking a trip around the world.

 

Well, the house and the car part, sure. But with that kind of money ... I'd love to say I'd start up a small business, but I have no idea, really, what kind of small business I'd start. I like writing. I suppose I could send a nice cash bribe to a major publishing house to convince them to publish something I'd written ... ?

 

I'd leave the rest in the bank, or keep it aside for a rainy day, at least. I really would like to travel, so of course I'd spend some time doing it, but I'll be the first to admit, I'm not sensible when it comes to money. I've gotten better - in 2012, I spent literally thousands on clothes and shoes - but I think I'd be far too tempted to fulfil my every wish for the few seconds of pleasure that wearing the new boots or that dress out brings before I leave it in the wardrobe because I'm too afraid of wrecking it to wear it again.

 

Yeah. That kind of money, in my hands, is a dangerous thing.

That's it. As a man with very few needs, I could live off 10M til my death very easily.

If I had 10 million Euro, I would:
- pay off my debts
- buy a nice house with a little pool somewhere at the German North Sea coast (doesn't need to be a big mansion)
- maybe buy a little vacation house in the German Alps
- buy a nice car (a nice modern BMW would be enough)
- take a vacation in other countries 2 or 3 times a year, Maldives is first
- buy my mother something nice
- live off the rest

If I had $10 million, I would do the following with the money. 

 

- I would buy a penthouse in Vancouver, if the op said $10 Billion then I would pic this penthouse

- I would buy an Audi R8 GT Spyder for my everyday car and maybe an Lamborghini Aventador or a Gallardo Spyder would be enough for the occasional drive

- I would payoff my parents debt and give a few million to both my parents

- I would travel around the world 

- I would donate a few million to charity 

- The rest would go into my savings account

Nope.

If you had 10mil you would spend at least half of it in SWAG clothes and stuff. Then you would show it to the whole internet in 666 photos that look the same, but are from slightly different angles!
