    We've probably all dreamt at one time or another about what you would do if you had all the money that you ever wanted. I think that this would fun - buy the http://graydesign.se/" and get a free car.

    So, what would you do if you had enough money?

    Obviously not a fan of the "well lived life is the best revenge" philosophy

    Right. Some people think revenge is the best revenge.

    Buy several hundred acres of land, build a hobbit hole-ish style home in more or less the center of it. Spend my time growing crops, brewing ales, smoking southfarthing pipe-weed, and all the while ignoring the world.

    Investments will take care of income, so wouldn't need to work for income, but I'd work the land and do as I please.

    Sorry! I'm too busy (to enjoy my life) to post here!:biggrin:

    going to trips around the world, buying a house and I guess I try to help sick and poor people. Who knows? Maybe spending that on researchs on incurable diseases


    And it never accurs to them : 2 wrongs don't make a right!:rolleyes:

    If I had an infinite supply of money, I'd hire some slaves to go to my job instead of me having to wake up so early to go.

    Buy an island or two.

    I'd buy all the land around one of my favorite trout ponds and build a modest lodge out there as a permanent residence. I'd still garden and split firewood, etc, but I'd have the opportunity to take a quick dip and do a bit of fly-fishing after getting sweaty.

    But 3 rights make a left.
    I'm living the life now, not waiting for money.

    I'd by a gymnasium and set up a ping pong arena. Then I'd get a high quality sound system and Lamborghini.

    You'd also need a nice cool aquarium/habitat and a bunch of penguin buddies. Penguins are quite social critters and would not appreciate isolation.

    Honestly? Nothing in particular. Buy a ton of collectible figures and novelty toys, maybe? I'd get a nice estate and a fair amount of land, and some nice high-tech equipment in my home. A nice car, too. Other than that, there's nothing I really long for that I can't get by normal means.

    I wouldn't touch it, things that are worth something are mostly free and the rest is only fun when you have made the achievement yourself. I have a ton of money saved up that I don't touch since there isn't anything I want to spend it on.

    If I had the money...

    solar panels for everyone, and gravity research

    I would finish getting my pilots licence and then either buy, build, or restore a Spitfire...those planes are works of beauty.

    I would also spend some time attaching buttered bread onto the backs of cats and sell them as anti-gravity devices.

    I'd buy Tsu and I an Su-37, and an F-22, along with personal training pilots.

    I flew Air Combat once and had the time of my life - literally. It easily rates as one of the top five experiences of my life. I hope to fly a fighter jet before I'm too old, through Incredible Adventures, or a similar company. Some dreams are within reach without first getting rich [or joining the military!].

    Only reason I like money is because it is scarce. Had I have too much money, everything would become invaluable, I might move to a cave. :rofl:
