If I had $50 million ...

    I'm sure this thread has been done before (hey, I've got short-term memory loss -- thanks Gulf War Illness), but what would you do with $50 million? And, more importantly, would you still work if you won it in a lottery?

    If I did work (and I probably would, at some writing job likely), I'd definitely commute in a helicopter.

    Helicopter is a good one.

    I'd buy a house in Sandpoint, ID on the lakefront with all the water toys (waverunners, ski boat) I'd ever need.
    I'd donate $5m to my college and split half of it to the J-school and the other half to the athletic department and try to get the football team up to snuff.
    I'd buy everyone here a green dress. But not a real green dress, that's cruel.

    I've always wanted to have a fountain which ran on champagne (or beer), a wine cellar, an aquaduct in my bedroom and an indoor ski slope.

    I'd pay off my student loans, buy a brand spanking new Subaru wagon, donate 5 million each to Ohio University, the Humane Society and Big Brothers Big Sisters and then I'd buy a house on Flathead Lake and retire with my millions, slowly becoming that creepy old rich woman who doesn't trust banks, keeps all her cash in her mattress and has 5,000 cats.

    You know what I'd do with $50 million? One-hundred chicks at the same time, man.

    Thanks, Del_B. The 'But not a real green dress, that's cruel' line always makes me giggle.

    I'd buy plane tickets to someplace safe and far away from everything for Brook and I. Then hire some people to get him there.

    That line always cracked me up too.

    The best thing was once Barenaked Ladies got pretty popular, they had to stop people from bringing Kraft Mac and Cheese to the shows because it created a giant mess for the cleanup crew.

    Kidnapping doesn't become you, IJAG. Even the pretend rich you.
