Buy a mansion and never work again.



Actually, I'd use that money to have any job I want.

Spend it all on GTA:O cash cards. 

Nah, I'd probably donate a million or two to charity, then spend the rest on all the luxuries any rich bastard would want - fancy new apartment, fancy new car, clothes, etc. etc.

3. Give $ to my friends.

4. Buy every game I want, buy an Xbox One to accompany my PS4, buy a high end PC.

Buy some cheap clothes from the dollar store, some fake J's, and a new Xbox controller.

Oh, and a PS4.

Buy a nice house in Vancouver, Canada. A nice new sports car, maybe a Audi R8 Cabrio and give some money to family members and save the rest.

Whilst mine would be in UK pounds, I'd stick the lot in property with low rents to help poorer people and the money from it would be reinvested in charity work. Syphon myself about £20k a year to live in a decent enough level of comfort but the rest of it can work to help people.

I'd probably buy the usual - a nice house, super car, all that. I'd also start a huge video game collection. The rest of the money I would put in the bank and let it grow interest. I might take some home and make a money house out of it.

Something like this is what I'd have if I were that wealthy.




After purchasing the acreage, building my home and building a huge shop that I can do some mechanical things.. I'd set up my family, give them a good share, donate to acouple charities that hit home for me. I'd build a huge shooting range for long distance shooting, I'd also build a killhouse for the more CQ sh*t. I also always thought of buying that Blob thing if I ever had my own pond or lake.


The Blob:





Most importantly, I'd put some money into starting a business or two.. hiring the right people to run them and just go from there. So many possibilities with a billion dollars.. it's too fun to think of what I would buy.

I'd buy a nice house up in the northeast US and live without having to worry about working for money ever again. :) Even with that, that's still about 15 million a year for the rest of my life. I'd take enough to get by and distribute the rest around.

i'd help out the homeless guy who I always see in our apartment car parking area. He is a genuine, very friendly guy who is just struggling. He also once helped me home when I was flat out drunk - didnt rob me and even locked my door for me and posted the keys through the letter box.


edit, Id also do other things to help people out (the ones who need it). 1 billion is just an incredible amount of money.

Maybe you can buy a US ambassadorship being a campaign donor for the next Obama twin.

The list of things....too long. One thing for sure though, get myself a nice VW camper van. I'd deck it out and make it completely custom with things such as purple shag carpet interior, mini fridge, bed, good size tv, solar panels on top so when I want to get away from society(probably most of the time). Then set me and my shag van off on a year long pan american tour, exploring any and everything in between.

In the previous money topic I chose to be a little sensible because it was just $10 million. But damn if I won a billion, like after taxes and all that crap, I'd go a bit crazy! *Warning, long post. Had nothing else to do*


- First house I'd purchase would be 10 Merrivale Pl, San Antonio, TX 78257 (currently on the market for $3,750,000 at the Dominion) because of the stunning views and wonderful architecture:









- Second house I'd purchase would be 60 W Brother Dr, Greenwich, CT 06830 (currently on the market for $6,495,000) because I love Greenwich, Connecticut. It would be my summer home:









- My car collection (how it would be split up, undecided right now) would be kind of extensive due to the fact that I love cars and spirited driving. I do prefer GT's and sport saloons (mostly in blue obviously) and they're the perfect cars to take on long journey's across the country:


~ Ferrari F12Berlinetta: blue w/ tan interior

~ Ferrari 458 Spider: red w/ tan interior

~ Bentley Continental GT V8: blue w/ creme & dark blue interior

~ Porsche 991 Carrera 4S: yellow w/ black interior

~ Mercedes SL 63 AMG Performance Pack: silver w/ red interior

~ BMW M4: white w/ white interior

~ Mercedes S 63 AMG: silver w/ creme interior

~ Audi S7: blue w/ white interior

~ Range Rover Sport: green w/ tan interior

~ Ferrari 365 GTB/4 Daytona: blue w/ tan interior *If I could ever find one*

~ Tesla Model S: red w/ creme interior


- Donate some money to ACS.

- Visit California and Washington State quite often.

- Own a small yet lovely yacht near Greenwich.

- Own a lovely private jet.

- I'd probably buy another house in Santa Monica, Malibu or Santa Barbara, I don't know!


Of course I'd save the rest of my money (I've added up all of my expenses and it's somewhere around $70,000,000 with taxes) and live happily. I'd try to always do something fun without spending too much money, to be honest I'd probably be driving most of the time. :)
